I never thought I will make pizza at home, at least not from scratch. All thanks to Happy Home Baking for her post, which start me thinking of the attempt. I do have everything that is needed for the dough, and I pick up the rest during my grocery shopping yesterday. I enjoy strolling down the supermarket aisle with the shopping trolley and I could spend hours there checking out the different food there from canned food, to sauce to instant noodles.
Back to the pizza, looking at the number of ingredients involved, I thought I shall hand knead this round and it wasn’t difficult to combine the ingredients into a dough. I actually enjoy the kneading process very much but I suspect I have not really do it the right way by using the body strength instead of just the arm power. So there I am knead .. knead .. knead, I was a little worried when I don’t see the dough having a smooth surface but after after sometime, it did turn into a beautiful dough. Seeing this is so satisfying, all is worth it and this dough texture is really easy to manage, it does not stick at all. It took more than an hour to proof somehow.
This is the dough after proofing, taking a 10 mins rest before rolling out flat.
Adding a layer of pizza sauce. I like to get nephew involve in the preparation process so he is the one who put on the sauce, added the cheese, ham and mushroom!
I din know if it will be a successful attempt so I use the basic ingredients like button mushroom, honey baked ham and mozeralla cheese. This recipe is definitely a keeper, I’m happy with the crust 🙂 No complaints for a homemade pizza!
Aside from pizza, I prepared some pasta for little nephew too! So why is he eating this pasta? All becos the pasta is in cute animal shape! There is the tortoise shape which is clearly seen here, I think they’re really cute. I prepared both lunch and dinner today, guess which is the meal he ate most? It’s dinner … that will be another post!
