Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn

Recipes from Today’s Show: Make-Ahead Family Meal

Posted by

TODAY on MHTV: My brother and nieces are coming to visit so I’m prepping a couple dishes that I can make in advance and that are also kid-friendly. My deep-dish pizza dough comes together in a snap and rises overnight to guarantee a perfect crust every time. I use this to make focaccia topped with slow-roasted tomatoes which I serve sliced up like a pizza. Finally, the girls and I make meatballs and use a secret ingredient to keep them light and fluffy. More from the show.

  • Lucinda,
    What a beautiful family. Watched the show with my son. Thanks to you, I have to make deep dish pizza this weekend. I'm guessing any toppings would be great on it?? Also, love the show. What great recipes can my family look forward to in the upcoming week?


  • I just love pizza and I would never have guessed that deep dish crust would be this simple. This is one to try!

  • Sorry to see the cut back in your shows, I only watch Mad Hungry because your recipes are very easy to follow. Thanks to you I have gotten very creative in my dishes I prepare for my family of 5, Thanks

  • I made your pizza crust tonight and everyone loved it. After my boys ate the first one, I started to make a second one! It is in the oven right now. Great recipe! Thanks!

  • My boys and I loved this show! We're having Pizza for dinner this Friday!

  • I'm watching the July 11, 2011 program on my Hallmark cable tv channel. The Salmon that marinates in ginger (and other spices) looks really good. My wife is a great cook and I wanted to forward this receipe to her, but I'm unable to find it anyware on your website. Please, send it to me. Thank you!
