Homemade Pizza II
Pizza for dinner tonight. This is my second attempt at making a pizza from scratch. This time round with the correct baking sheet my pizza turn out so much better:)
With the gloomy weather for the past few days, I was very doubtful that the dough would rise within the 1-1.5 hours time. So in order to make it for dinner tonight (which is around 6-6.30 pm), I prepare earlier. I started kneading around 1.30 pm and the dough was sent for proofing by 2.00 pm. I constantly peeked at the proofing dough to check the rising. I was a little surprised that it did rise within the one hour stipulated time....just like my first attempt.
I use the same recipe from My first homemade pizza. I divide the dough into two. This time round I use a sandwich tin and a baking tray. I thought a round sandwich tin would yield pretty well like a store-bought pizza. However, this round pizza turned out to be a little thicker than the elongated one. Hmm.... next time, I will just roll out into round and bake it on a tray.
Overall, my family loved it very much. My eldest son who just came back from school gobbled up three pieces at one go! Getting to be a big eater now:)), but still so slim:(
Here's a close-up of my pizza:
Seems like my kids love this kind of thick crust pizza. May try out the thin crust next round. Oh yah, my little son complained about the pineapple chunks. He doesn't like pineapple!
