Pizza is not really my thing; but, since I had to watch Nancy make her first home-made pizza, I will bore you with the interesting event. I watched her search pizza recipes for weeks. To my surprise, she brought home both Trader Joe’s pizza dough and their pizza sauce. I guess that just saves me from writing about the possible fiasco that would have taken place with her own pizza dough? Don’t worry, I am sure that she will try to make her pizza dough from scratch next time. At first when I watched her kneading the pizza dough, I wondered if she was making me some type of dog treat. But, that idea was soon dismissed when I watched her plaster pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese on top of the dough.
I was rather perplexed by all the topping suggestions that she considered before choosing Canadian bacon and pineapple. I suppose most of my dog treats have that many ingredients too; however, they mix them all together without being fancy. Finally, the pizza went into the oven for about ten minutes as they waited in anticipation of a yummy pizza. Well, the pizza was a huge success!
Just like any good dog would do, I sat and watched them devour that delicious pizza. In retrospect, I realize that I know that it is “never about me” but, geez, that pizza looked so good and I wanted a slice! OK, so I would have done what Nancy does and pick off piece by piece each topping. I am quite sure I would not have liked the actual sauce, just the toppings and the crust. I will never know though, will I?
Other than pizza and all that pizzazz, it has been extremely hot and humid here. Maybe some of my readers will share about their own homemade pizza experiences? Here is a photo of the Hawaiian Pizza from last week.
