Pizza party

I recently bought some new fabric from Clarke and Clarke.  They have so many nice prints I ended up with 11 prints, each a meter long.  They're a lovely heavy cotton.  As they all share common colours I'm planning on making...oooooh...about a thousand....cushions for our living room.  Here's number 1, modelled beautifully by Howard (and our scruffy  well loved sofa).
I'll update as I get around to the rest.

 It's the school holidays at present so time is scarce.  It's my first holiday with both of the boys.  When it was just me and Ol we could do whatever we wanted, but now we have the tiny man to think about so can't go out at the drop of a hat anymore.  Oliver doesn't mind at all but in September he'll be moving from nursery to big school so I want to make the most of our time together before school starts.

Last night we made pizza for supper.  It was Tom's day off so I plonked Hugo with Daddy and off me and my little man went on a quest for food.

My little man being such a BIG boy wanted to do everything himself.  From measuring to kneading to rolling to grating to carefully helping me place the tray in the oven.  It scares me how grown up he is now.

He was so proud of his little creation.

It was so good that it was gone in about two minutes flat.  Well...a growing boy needs muchos sustenance!! 

The recipe I have is really good and simple to make.  

Pizza Dough
300g strong bread flour
1tsp instant yeast
pinch of salt
1tbsp olive oil
approx 200ml warm water

You can leave it to rise and have a thicker base or use it straight away if you want a thin crust.

It works every time and tastes like proper pizza the way the Italians make it!

  1. My girls love to make pizza - I think it must be their favourite thing of it's so versatile.
