If I had to be honest (which I most certainly almost always am), Binks and I order pizza in about once every two weeks. When vowing to be husband and wife, we also made a sub-vow to find the best pizza in any city we live in. The sub-vow helps keep the main-vow strong! It’s the power of pizza.
We have yet to find the best in Dallas. For my Dallas/Texas readers, help me on this front! In Houston, it is New York Pizzeria – hands down. The original location, not the new trend of Russo’s. I just want a slice. Hold the ambiance.
Obviously our pizza addiction sets us back a bit of money every two weeks. So, in an attempt to keep the addiction home – because people tend to stare when you take it outside – I attempted home-made pizza.
And it was easy as pie.
First, the yeast and the proofing.
What you see is just the beginning stages of proofing. Let your yeast/water/sugar mixture get really frothy (i.e. look to the very right side of the picture below – that’s all proofing baby!)
Then the kneading. And, resting.
Done and done!
I promise you this is a keeper!
Do you order out? How often? What’s your place/food of choice? What’s your favorite pizza restaurant in your area (make sure you tell me your area)?
