I rarely plan ahead for dinner. I usually wait until 4 o’clock or so and then rummage through the freezer and cupboard. However, today while browsing through the posts in my blog reader, I came across a post about making a homemade pizza. I had some leftover sausage in the freezer. Plus I have a bread maker, which has a dough only setting, so making the dough was going to be easy enough. I knew Andrew would love this idea so I went ahead and started the dough.
Well, silly me the first thing I did was read the recipe wrong and put way too much oil in the dough. So the crust is a bit oilier than it should be, but it was still edible and actually pretty good, although I’m sure my tummy will hurt tonight from the extra grease.
I took Andrew to the grocery store and let him pick out a few more things to put on the pizza. We ended up with pepperoni and cheese. I also bought an onion, some mushrooms, and a green pepper. I fried up the mushrooms and onions a little bit. Those went on only one side of the pizza. Then sausage and olives and pepperoni on the whole thing. And then covered it all with plenty of cheese.
Andrew waited impatiently for it to be done. It did end up cooking too long. The recipe said to cook on 375 for at least 45 minutes, I only had it in there for 30 minutes and it was too done. I guess I should have checked it the first time he was complaining about starvation.
