We rarely get take-aways, but we do sometimes treat ourselves to a yummy pizza or two from Waitrose where we shop for our groceries. I try to plan daily menus for the week ahead and on my shopping list for Saturday you can often find Pizza as our proposed dinner. Well this week was no different, however instead of buying pre-made pizzas I decided to make my own pizza, and gosh were we rewarded for doing so! I honestly have no idea why I have never made pizzas before. I make bread all the time, I am always whipping up batches of tomato sauce for various pasta dishes and our pantry and fridge are usually stocked with ingredients that can be used as toppings so who knows why it has taken me so long to make pizzas!
Within thirty minutes these little beauties were in the oven oozing buffalo mozzarella and taleggio whilst the salami and bases were crisping to perfection....unfortunately all three of us were absolutely ravenous so we were tucking in with gusto before I remembered to photograph them piping hot from the oven, so this before shot is all I have. Oh I also have some very happy taste buds that are actually begging for another little nibble as I type!
This was my first foray into pizza making, but it most certainly will not be my last as I will never buy another pre-made pizza again.
Wishing you a very Happy Monday
