Homemade pizza 02.04.2012

Leece is a pretty good baker. Her breads are first rate. So's her pizza crust.

The kids have been nagging about having some homemade pizza, so yesterday we had a group effort pizza-making.

Leece used bread flour rather than all-purpose flour, which worked very well indeed, as the pizza crust was probably the best ever. Smeared generously with a well-seasoned tomato paste - paste, not sauce - and then slathered with pepperoni, sweet Italian sausage, Texas 1015 onion chunks, bell pepper, and mushrooms. A few handfuls of mozzarella and Parmesan topped it off. In fact, this was probably the best pizza we've ever made. It all just seemed to come together so well.

All participated. Kneaders, vegetable choppers, mixers, scullery maids. You can see the gallery over on the Galleries page of Homemade Pizza in The Holy Land 02.04.2012, under Events.
