Happy National Pizza Day!!!
On one of the discord servers I hang out, new logins are introduced by the software as
“username just arrived. We hope you brought pizza!”
And i hope they do!
… and National Beer Day is 6th August, and National Liquor Day is 16th October. Then again, every day is Personal Beer and Liquor Day!
I must have had a premonition!
I made pizza last night and that’s what is for lunch today
Topped this one with bacon, onions, mushroom, red pepper and garlic. I love homemade pizza
… and the crust isn’t burnt … just a shadow
Yes! Here’s a “day” I can get behind.
Yep, me, too. Homemade grilled pizzas are my favorite. Unfortunately, it’s far too cold to fire up the grill this evening.
I don’t even have a grill, so I’ve never tried that … but it sounds delicious too!
Well, I don’t want to bum you out, but they are delicious. We’ve been grilling pizzas for a bit and have fine tuned a technique that works for us. We put a pizza stone on the grill and give it plenty of time to preheat and get super hot. We’ll use a mild, fruity wood to add a little smoke flavor (usually apple or cherry). The dough goes on the stone for about 2 minutes, then it gets flipped and topped and that bakes for just another 3 minutes or so. The crust is delicious and crispy with a little hint of smoke (I’d be happy eating the crust by itself), and the toppings are really fresh since they only cook for a few minutes — just long enough to heat up and melt the cheese. I’ll have to post some photos next time we do this.
Yes! post some pics It really does sound awesome!
Yes bbq pizza is wonderful.
I make pizza bases with yoghurt and plain flour.
recipe? That sounds very interesting too!
I use 0% fat plain yoghurt, or Greek Yoghurt (or Greek Style Yoghurt). You can use plain flour with baking soda, or self-raising flour.
Sometimes, I will use plain flour, and then sprinkle the countertop with self-raising flour.
Other than that - just add and mix to your liking.
I don’t really weigh anything, just kinda go with it - typical bloke cooking right?
Does it have to settle and raise at all or do you just spread it out and use?
I’ll have to give this a try
No - just knead it for about 5-10 minutes.
Then roll it out or flatten it out.
cook it on a pan to firm it up a bit.
Add your sauce/cheeses and toppings.
Pop it in the oven for about 10-12 minutes.
Awesome! Thank you
Gonna give this a whirl
I’d imagine if you don’t want gluten - then use plain flour.
It’s up to you how think you want the base - I usually go for thin.
Plus - another thing you can do with this recipe.
Cut the ‘dough’ into triangles.
Sprinkle with your favourite chip flavour (like Chilli Flakes)
-My fav is chilli flakes and powder cheese
Cook in the oven until golden crispy.
You have nachos!
Give 00 pizza flour a try. It will up your crust game.
