So, for today's entry: Pizza!
I really wish my family liked pizza more because I am in love with working with pizza dough. My favorite crust recipe is from Canadian Living. It is a thicker, chewier crust but it is still crisp and airy (I rolled it really really thin). It rolls out like a dream and I like the use of olive oil in the dough. It would make great bread sticks too. I topped it with freshly roasted red peppers, feta cheese, bacon and onions.
I adore working with yeast dough, especially sweet yeast doughs. Baking bread is my obsession. I read somewhere that in the realm of baking there are two types of people: bread-makers and pastry-makers. I'm definitely a bread person. Pastry is too artsy and less earthy. I like the feel of the dough under my hands and the way it grounds me and pulls me down back to earth when my mind is too hectic.
