Oh the joys of parenthood
Hello blithering, love the name. Joyo indeed 😉
Ok so how do you manage to do pizza when they are clamouring?
My basic pizza needs a couple of hours rising and so on
My dough does too, I slash it and cover it in clingfilm to speed things up. Normally half an hour does the trick, you still get a good result.
I do the 1lb of bread flour, pinch of slat, then add half a pint of tepid water into which I’ve mixed some yeast and honey/sugar.
We usually just buy pita bread (or pocket bread) and add our toppings. But we loooove pizza night! So much, in fact, that I just bought two huge circular pizza trays and a pizza cutter. Now all I need to do is get the motivation to make my own dough!
I have so much of your beautiful art to catch up on as we’ve been travelling for weeks and just moved interstate. I can’t wait to get settled and start drawing again!
Go for it, if you freeze the dough you can always have it ready for when you need it. My favourite is chilli, chorizo, mozzarella and an egg cracked in the middle. Glad your journey went well, hope to see some new stuff soon from you too 🙂
I really should get into the habit of making my own bases / bread – shop bought stuff is naff in comparison.
And you can freeze dough in little balls so you’ve always got the right amount ready for a quick meal.
Bread machines are a good pair of extra hands in the kitchen, so you can entertain the kids while the pizza dough is in the machine (it kneads and rises in there :))
Yes we have considered the bread machine, so many people I know rave about them.
I have a recipe which needs no rising time yet still Monty sobs when it goes in the oven: ‘Want pizza now Mama, bring it! No, no!’ etc
oooh share …
