There haven’t been many birthdays recently (therefore no cakes), and as the weather has started to get cooler I wanted to share with you some of the other baking that I love to make. These are my home made Pizza’s!
Home made pizza’s are almost a staple in our house as they are really easy to make and they are great for using up cold meats and vegetables in the fridge. Also I always search our vegi-patch and make sure that I can through something on like tomatoes or spinach or zucchini and of course fresh parsley depending on what the season is producing.
Making pizza bases may sound daunting but it is actually really easy. 2 1/2 cups of flour mixed with a pinch of salt, sugar, basil, oregano and then mixed with 1 cup of warm water which has a satchel of yeast stirred into it. Mix it together and give it a bit of a knead until it is in a ball shape, cover with a tea towel and let it rise for about 3 hours. If you don’t have 3 hours then you can prepare it the night before and leave it in the fridge after it has risen. Easy!
I find the more colours you can put on the pizza the better it tastes.
My home made pizzas always taste better than anything store brought too because you know the ingredients are so fresh!
