so about my pizza
it was difficult. i'm not going to lie- i am a pizza lover, a pizza connoisseur, a devotee of pizza- i could eat it every night for dinner- without fail... not too many pizza's out there i don't like. so, to try and create such a wonderful food was difficult.
i had high hopes to top little ol' pillsbury doughboy-
so... ella and i put on our aprons and got to work. i knew that since i was making the dough (yup... i made the dough) we would have to start early since it had to rise twice (45 minutes each time) so... we were excited to start and the process went well- ella was really helpful and loved getting to cook with me. i kneaded the dough for ten minutes- sounds easy- but it was some work!
it took some time for me to figure out the best way to get the dough to rise- it needs a warm place- our house is freezing! so a bowl of hot water went into the bottom of the oven and i turned on the oven temp to warm, covered the dough with a wet paper towel and all was well-
i even made the sauce ( i had no idea it was that easy) and it was fabulous! chris said- "why do we even buy that other crap" -- that would be a compliment- thanks honey!
next time i will have to play around with other toppings and seasonings- but everyone seemed to love it- ella ate three pieces!
