I don't usually like to toot my own horn (False. I like to toot my own horn whenever I can.), but I have to blog about my successful pizza-making last night because I was pretty proud of myself. For Christmas, my brother and sister-in-law gave us a pizza stone, pizza peel, and this bad boy:
We had no choice but to get down to business and make some pizzas!
I decided that I didn't want to bite off more than I could chew, so for this pizza-making endeavor, I kept it simple and just made the dough from the book's recipe. An entire CPK pizza will have to wait until I have honed my pizza/dough-making skills. The book explains how to make the dough, shape the dough, throw the dough, and then cook the pizzas. Everything was pretty straight-forward, but throwing the dough was a little tricky. It took some practice, but I got it down fairly well. No pictures of that since Jared was busy with class while I was throwing it. I think the pizzas turned out pretty well, though, and I'm excited to make some of the actual CPK pizzas, including my favorite, the Tostada Pizza. Mmmmm!
Here are the finished products:
