First things first 🙂 Lovely Sandra from Sandra’s Easy Cooking awarded me with this amazing blogging award. Thank you so much I feel honoured 🙂
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.
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 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 😉
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 😉 Always look to the bright side of life 😉
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 🙂 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 🙂
So how about a pizza? but only the one made from scratch I mean?
