I didn't realise that the pizza dough recipe was going to be enough for 8 pizzas. Thats because I don't read the recipe through before I start cooking. And thats why I often go out to cook dinner at 6.30, look at the recipe and the first thing it says is that you have to marinate something for about three hours or overnight.
Anyway I have six balls of dough in the freezer now that will get used up in the end.
It was a messy job though that seemed to use a lot of items. And space.
And there was no way it was all going to fit in my food processor – after two cups of flour went in I could see there was no way another six were going to fit. So it was onto the kitchen table for hand kneading.
Ten minutes seemed to take a long time. But it was lovely and smooth and ready to rise.
And then it turned into a dough monster and tried to escape. Like the one in Gumby.
So I made two pizzas. One was a vegetarian. And I roasted my own garlic and capsicums and tomatoes. And I made my own pizza sauce. But I forgot to take a photo of it.
And I made a margherita. We cooked it in the barbeque to see how it went. And it was good. Nice crispy base. Perhaps a little too crispy in places on the bottom for me. But will definitely cook them in there from now on, just tone down the heat a bit.
And now I'm off to have leftovers for breakfast.
