I have been busy rolling, twisting, turning, moulding and lots of kneading.
These are some of the results of kneading, some silver clay pendants I made.
When my kids are hungry they prefer I knead some other kind of doughs for these.
I learnt this fantastic pizza dough recipe from DH Romania. I call her DH Romania although she is half German and grew up in Germany and lived here in The Netherlands half her life but her cooking is very much inspired by her grandmother in Romania. We were waiting for our boys to finish hockey and I found myself jotting down this recipe at the hockey field. Great ideas sometimes happened at the most unlikely places. It turned out to be the most successful pizza dough I have ever made.
The recipe is so good my kids have to fight to cut the pizza, so I thought I made mini size pizzas that nobody has to cut or fight at the dinner table.
This dough is so easy to make and feels so good to touch and knead. The secret is actually making sure I introduce yeast to warm water together with sugar. After that the dough has to sit in a warm room temperature for few hours to proof into a fluffy, soft to touch texture. Its' size actually doubled. The dough is so soft , smooth and fluffy to manage. In fact the fluffiest, softest and smoothest dough I ever touch.
As for the toppings I could get a bit lazier using ready made pasta sauce or just ketchup and finish it with some salami and grated cheese. Sometimes I just used leftover teriyaki chicken!
A great pizza dough!
