Pizza

O.K.  This is my second.  I'm kind of proud of it.



It's actually round!  Well, mostly.  My first one was shaped sort of like an infected kidney.  But I figured out how to roll one out with a rolling pin and made this one mostly round.  I also doped it with a lot of sauce, a lot of cheese and a lot of pepperoni.  And a lot of Italian seasoning.

My second one was a lot better than the first one.  I should have baked this one a little longer to firm up the crust a bit but I'm learning.

Now, if I could just be a little more patient with my photography . . .

I do like pizza.

Home made pizzas are the best - if its a thick base try cooking it a couple of minutes before adding the topping - cooking longer when its all made up can overdo the topping (believe me its the voice of many years experience talking!)

Would SWMBO consider a husband swap? Your new-found cooking skills could make you fairly hot property you know!

Steve - Me, too.

Jane - Actually we've grown partial to thin crusts but thanks for the tip.

Lucy - I think not. She's been waiting nearly 40 years for this!

Steve said...

Thin crust, like you.

Suz - It's actually not that hard. Our bread machine made the dough. SWMBO helped with the first one after I ran into trouble. This one I made all on my own. As I said, it could have baked for a bit longer to firm up the crust a bit but it was tasty.

Looks good to me!! Glad to see pizza working out for you. It can be a real difficult beast to tame.

Oh, yum. Save me a big slice! Did you make the dough in your bread machine? I do and it's so incredibly easy.

Catalyst said...

Tombo - You are correct, sir!

Tess - Yes, I did make the dough in the bread machine and you're right, it is easy.
