I finally got around to completing something off my Life List and it’s a simple one, but a big one. Before the Summer started, one of my main goals was to make a pizza from scratch. Why? Because I had a new Stand Mixer I wanted to use, and I felt like it was a good thing to use. I also had a new immersion blender and food processor. Plus I love pizza. The plan was to buy all the ingredients (I wasn’t going to like, butcher my own meat, or make my own mozzarella, sorry) and make dough (which I’d never done before) and sauce (which I’ve done once, but it didn’t turn out well).
The dough: It was surprisingly simple to make, and I used this recipe.
For sauce I just kinda winged it. Usually, when I’m making pasta with store bought sauce, I always tend to add a bunch of herbs and spices anyway.
I may have to come up with a recipe though because it was SO GOOD.
I could’ve just eaten sauce all night.
Yeah, what do you think of that, I grated my own cheese.
Alan fried up some little sausage balls.
Neither of us has grilled a pizza before. It was actually not difficult, though our grill is built into the house (yeah!) and we don’t have a lid, so trying to get the cheese melted was a trial, and our little pizzas ended up with black bottoms.
They were still excellent little pizzas! It was a whole day process though, which wasn’t necessarily too taxing, it was just time consuming and it created mess.
