of an outstanding failure!
Last night, during the time that we normally would be preparing dinner together, I was chatting on the phone with a friend from back home who I have not spoken to in AGES. We were having a jolly conversation while Hank was chugging away making our dinner. We had everything prepped for an onion, mushroom, goat cheese pizza. While I was in the other room, he was rolling out the dough, placing it on a cutting board, perfectly laying out all of the toppings and then considering how in the heck he was going to get this thing onto our flaming hot pizza stone. I heard some grumbling coming from the kitchen, so I went in to investigate. I found him at the considering part of the process.
Step 1: Try and slide pizza from cutting board to flaming hot pizza stone. FAIL.
Step 2: Fold pizza and toppings into fourths and transfer to flaming hot pizza stone. Semi FAIL.
Step 3: Try and unfold pizza on flaming hot pizza stone. FAIL.
Step 4: Make pizza into calzone while still on flaming hot pizza stone. FAIL.
Step 5: Make disfigured calzone into pizza roll up. Semi FAIL.
It went into the oven looking like this:
I have to say, we may start doing our pizza this way always. It was really a great way to mix it all together. Being a lover of all things bread, I loved the big doughy parts. I’m sure in the future we will try and make it a little bit more aesthetically pleasing.
