Excuse me for ignoring my blog for what... 4 months now? It has only seemed like a lot has been going on. From my parents divorce and the beginning of the ever- crazy middle school year, one would not have to guess why there are a lack of new posts on this website... I have yet to make any extreme meals recently... Although I did happen to create my first almost totally handmade (save for the sauce) pizza in September/ October. It wasn't much- mozzarella, fresh tomato, basil, and pizza sauce from Bloom- made using a recipe off the back of a yeast packet. Well might I say, whatever yeast is, there little habitat knows much about making a good pizza. It was almost flawless, but I cannot say peferct. Only because my dad and I were not educated with the use of pizza stones. I had no clue that I was supposed to pre-heat the stone and cover it with corn meal (or corn-flower: I forget at the moment) before I placed the pizza on it and in the oven. And that's how we ended up with almost no crust- what was left of it had a rugged texture from the knife sawing it off the stone. Warm sauce, perfectly browned mozzeralla, basil cooked to perfection, and a... jagged crust? Well, we made the best out of our meal and proceeded to make sandwiches of each slice- simply by rolling it up (cheese-side in) and... eating it. Best Pizza Sandwich? I think so.
