Pizza!Posted: September 19, 2012
My husband loves pizza. He thinks it’s one of the greatest foods in the world and if were up to him he would happily eat it at least once a week for the rest of his life. Unfortunately for him, he married me. I only tolerate pizza and I could pretty easily remain happy without ever eating a slice of pizza. Consequently, we don’t buy pizza (it’s expensive) and we don’t order pizza (it’s expensive and I don’t really like it).
Last night I thought I would try to compromise our I-love-pizza–I-don’t-like-pizza perspectives by making pizza from scratch. I bought some pizza crust yeast, pizza sauce, cheese, and pepperoni and set about trying to make an acceptable pizza. Well, things were a little more complicated than I expected and I for some reason needed to use over twice the amount of flour the recipe required. I also couldn’t get the dough to shape into a circle. However, every once in awhile my culinary skills don’t completely backfire on me and the final product was an edible, albeit misshapen, pepperoni/pineapple ham pizza.
