K. So this time, after chatting with my pizza sensei, I decided to roll the dough out instead of pushing it out by hand like last time. (See dough recipe here.) So roll and roll I did. I made this one as thin as I could with the size of the pan I had to work with. And when it fell over the edges, I just folded it back on with my fingers making for a nice little crust around the edges. :)
I really wanted to try a veggie pizza this time - so I quick steamed some broccoli...
...and added tomato and crumbled feta cheese. Drooooool.
How do I know? "Wow, this is much better than your last one!" And he helped himself to seconds. :) It really was a lot better. Thinner crust is the way to go. And I used about 16 oz of shredded "pizza" cheese. Which had a delightful chew to it - and an especially rich flavor around the edge where it was well done. So so good. I'm definitely doing this again. So easy. Like I said - if you are scared of "dough from scratch" like I was - try this. You'll be a pizza master in no time.
Incidentally...some visitors we had this weekend.
What's funny is, I have never, in the year since Jon moved in, ever seen mourning doves around here. And about a week or so ago, I saw three of them under the feeder. Then Sunday, there they were, all fluffed up in the tree. (It was really cold that day.) I betcha it's the same group. Aren't they adorable?!
