Pizza Pants!

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!
