Pizza!

My First Pizza


I made my first pizza today! It was fairly straightforward; the only unexpectedly awkward part was trying to evenly distribute tomato paste over the slippery surface of olive-oiled dough. Also, the suggestion to use corn meal to keep the wheat dough from sticking to the baking tray means it is suitable for people with neither wheat nor corn allergies in its current form. Toppings were tomato paste with basil and oregano, fresh mozzarella, a Welsh cheddar from last week’s Real Food Festival, grilled artichokes, and fresh wild garlic leaves donated by my considerate next-door neighbor*.

I use olive oil to grease the baking sheet underneath the pizza, rather than corn meal. That would give you only one grain allergen, anyhow.

Thank you.

On the convenient side, the only person I know who is allergic to corn lives on the other side of the ocean from me, so I am not likely to need to entertain her anytime soon.
