Mo' Pizza


Tried another recipe for pizza and it came out pretty good. Used the same crust - flour, yeast, water, wheat germ, wheat bran, and Italian herbs, but used fresh mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, red peppers, onions, olives, and cappicola for toppings. I really enjoy playing with my food and spend alot of time studying other cultures foods and cooking techniques. The downside is my hobby hasn't done anything for my svelte boyish figure.

The upside are the fresh ingredients -- I know what is in the food and where it came from and am sure the cook washed his hands and equipment (so to speak). The main key to cooking as far as I am concerned is the care in selection of ingredients and the initial prep, the more care one gives the early stages of the dish the better the finished product will be.

home made pizza is the best! when I was a boy I always wanted to be a Pizzaiolo when I'm grown up :)

But I make them italian style - with very thin bottom. mmmmmh.

try it like this: make the dough very thin and but it for about 3 minutes into the the hot oven. take it out and let it cool for a minute. now its a little crispy :) and now start with the topics, like tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, salame. not too much. and back into the oven. first few minutes as hot as possible... the another 10 minutes at 180 C.
try it... i'm a real pro :)
