Homemade Pizzas

Recommended Posts

We were talking about getting a pizza delivery today. I love them but the salt content in high st delivery pizza is massive. it plays havoc with me. :sick:

Someone suggested we make our own pizzas. :^

My youngest daughter (age 19) offered to make the pizzas. (four of us) This would be a first, but she's a pretty good cook :) She made the dough and tomato base from scratch. I took a few pics:

Tomato base, mozzarella, baby tomato, sauteed mushroom, ricotta and spinach

I'm seriously salivating.

They look bloody superb.

I've already had the pleasure of your family's cooking and these? Monumental Jim.

Christ. I'm trying to lose weight, but that lot has made me seriously hungry.

I totally get that. I am appalled at what shit gets sold and yet it would still rate as one of my favourite food groups. You know...protein, carbs, meat, veg....pizza !

That little lot would get a definite entry on the "I love 'em" list :^

:rofl: She didn't quite get the hang of round pizzas

Since when did the shape matter?

They look utterly epic and if I wasn't about 70 miles away at this moment, I'd be banging on your door right now.

Superb mate.

Frankly, just got out of the shower, but those pics make me want to get in the car in my dressing gown and hit the road right now. You're bloody lucky you don't live closer. Posting things like that make you a target you know. I've already been made aware of your food skills and it obviously runs in the family.

I've eaten seriously, but looking at that makes me seriously hungry...

Hi Jim,

What time do you want me round.

That pizza is not going to eat itself.

He'd better have some beer to wash it down with...;-)

Always make my own, Thursday night family tradition.

Last lot I used spelt flour which gave a nice chewy texture to the base.

Have the oven as hot as it gets oft a good 5 mins before putting them in.

Try and get hold of sheets with holes in bases (good cook shop will have them)

Alternatively get oven for the garden :-0
