pizza from scratch

pizza from scratcI made pizza from scratch on a recent Sunday. It’s something I do every so often, though not on a regular basis. When I’m done I pause and reflect on how much work that really is.

I make the dough from scratch and let it rise. At one time the sauce consisted simply of my seasoning tomato sauce, but I now make the sauce from scratch as well using canned tomatoes. When you add together all the steps of preparing the crust, making the sauce, preparing the toppings (as in slicing the mushrooms), and then putting everything together it really is quite a task. But when the pizza comes out of the oven the result is well worth the effort.

I’ll do it all again when the memory of the work involved is not quite so sharp.
