I mentioned in a post last week that I was going to try making my own pizza. And I did! Here’s how it all began.

I carefully mixed the flour into the water/yeast/sugar. They don’t tell you that when you do that, the water starts leaking out. And it’s gross. And no matter how much flour you put on your hands, the dough still sticks to you.

That done, it’s time to chop basil for the sauce while waiting for the dough to rise and go springy or whatever.

At last I get to use my big death knife

Fingers still miraculously intact, I check the dough. It has risen, hooray!

Risen and springy and whatnot

Open the fridge – what to put on it? Everything!

Pile it on!

Into the oven and – ta-da!

Yum

My first baking since Home Economics at school, early 1980s. Very tasty!
