Mother's Day BBQ

WARNING : this is a food post

I've been making my own pizza for a few years now; at first, just to try it. The story of why I don't order pizza anymore is for another time.

Attention : this isn't a recipe post

I don't mean to tell you what to do. Half the fun is finding flavours that work for you. I've effed the directions up numerous times, don't sweat! Unless you forget an ingredient... totally forget; if you put the salt in when the dough is already a ball shape, it still works ;).

It's a generic dough recipe anyway:
4C flour
1 3/4C water
2tbsp olive oil
2tsp sugar
1 1/2tsp salt
1tsp quick rise yeast

And that sucks

This is far superior

I add:
1tbsp garlic powder
1tbsp dried oregano leaves
1tbsp dried basil leaves

Simple but effective.

This summer, I will make sauce mostly from ingredients grown in my garden but I've used everything from Ragu to marinara as a sauce. I went with some store bought tomato paste with garlic (don't have to put as much in that way haha), fresh oregano (its all that I have ready atm), dried basil, dried marjoram, paprika, cumin, and black pepper.


Usually I go with straight pepperoni and mozza on my pizza. Nobody is ever unhappy with that, right? But we're celebrating today and I'm no hypocrite lol. And I have some things in the fridge to use up.


There is a lot going on here. Pepperoni, ham, bacon, pineapple, tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers. Lotsa mozza. It's layered a bit. Looking ready for the BBQ.


Don't argue, it just tastes better this way.


I didn't get this recipe from my mum. She taught me how to learn how to make good food and food, good. Happy Mother's Day!


Damn and now I'm hungry.
