Such a disappointing day. Sigh.
Flushed with success from my bread making session the other day I planned a pizza lunch. The oven is, after all, a pizza oven and I haven't yet made pizza in it. I didn't invite anyone because the potential for failure was high.
I used a recipe from YouTube... (URL HERE) Along with accompanying video... What could go wrong?
Let me tell you.
1. The fire was ready long before we were hungry. I then spent an hour letting it die down a bit then coaxing it back to life.
2. The dough did not look like the dough from the video. I don't think I kneaded it enough.
3. I made enough dough for 2 x 12 inch pizzas. My peel is not big enough for a 12 inch pizza it's also not round. So I made the pizzas smaller. This meant the dough was far too thick in the centre and combined with juice from the tomatoes just went soggy.
4. I used bought tomato Frito as the base. It's not actually tomato paste, I haven't actually seen tomato paste in the shops here, I think I will have to make my own in future. Anyway tomato Frito is too thin. Lesson learned.
Although Man ate his pizza, Woman threw hers in the bin! Beyond disappointing!
