I must say that I think pizza is definitely one of my very favorite foods. It's comforting and oh so tasty and what could be more simple then bread, sauce and cheese! Well I tried my hand at some homemade pizza dough the other night and it actually turned out pretty tasty. I do recommend cooking your raw dough ten minutes and then add the topping for another ten minutes in the oven. It was kinda soft in the middle because I didn't think to do that, but oh the smell and taste of fresh dough cooking in my oven was so rewarding. Yes it does take time. I let the dough rise for an hour, but it was so worth it. It even passed Jeff's taste test! That was my goal. :) I am wanting to experiment some more with fresh baked bread, but I know I will have to be careful because I will want to eat it ALL! So far Publix bakery has been great at offering so many wonderful breads that I hadn't even thought of doing my own much. But I will post my first try at a loaf so you can all see if I passed or failed. I used to make it all the time when I lived at home with my folks and actually became pretty quick at putting it together. I really want to try making some bread bowls for all those nights of soup in the cooler months. Maybe I can even get my husband to eat soup that way! We'll see.
