On Pizza and Award

First things first πŸ™‚ Lovely Sandra from Sandra’s Easy Cooking awarded me with this amazing blogging award. Thank you so much I feel honoured πŸ™‚

Today after a closer inspection of the fridge I discovered a pack of freah yeats, which seem to be running quite tight on expiry date and since the weather was just perfect for a walk and fridge showed no traces of mozzarella I decided that’s a pizza day. Yes my way of thinking is weird… believe me it is… lol

In the local store I found both mozzarella and blue cheese, but then I spotted Polish pepperoni and I knew what I wanted on my pizza. So grab those and rushed home, where my pizza dough was already busy escaping from the bowl – Houdini or what?

 

I wanted a pizza that would be mouthfilling but with a nice bite to that. The blue cheese was a nice adding, still I decided I need real tomato sauce – thick and decadent, with lots of onion and garlic as one craves those things in the winter.

Quick and Easy Tomato Sauce

1 box chopped tomatos (I usually use those)

1 onion diced

3 cloves garlic, pressed

salt, pepper, dried sweet paprica, dried herbs and garlic

In the small pot put some olive oil and fry Β quickly garlic and onion. Add tomatos and spices and let cook until the fluid is reduced.

For pizza I used my classical pizza dough recipe. Because my family are huge fans of a thick pizza bottoms. Maybe Mom’s fascination with yeats/bread dough has sth to do with it… one can never be too sure about things like that πŸ˜‰

From my end I think there’s sth very relaxing in working with bread/yeats dough. The energy and strengh and love which one needs to put into the whole process is highly rewarding at the end. Besides I always feel like I did sth good for myself, as making a good pizza or bread means burning lots of calories in the process of work-out πŸ˜‰ Always look to the bright side of life πŸ˜‰

Italians seem to have a huge thing about pizza. I remember when I went to visit my Best Friend last summer we could have pizza every day and I didn’t gain a pound. Maybe it’s sth about the way they prepare it or about the ingredients… the truth is that they know their pizza very well πŸ™‚ I wish I would have home a nice stone oven, or that my parents would prefer Italian style pizza better than American one, but still… making pizza is making a soul food πŸ™‚

So how about a pizza? but only the one made from scratch I mean?
