I couldn’t think of a title for this post, and I tried googling all the ingredients and the interweb gave me no ideas. In a moment of panic, Ariel forced me to call it this. Apologies. (she is now saying the title like a valley girl)
Before we start, an admittance of guilt: I feel absolutely horrible that I haven’t blogged for nearly a week. I’ve had so much school work to do, and I shouldn’t even be blogging right now… Lets be honest, I really just needed to stop doing work for two seconds. Last night I made a cake (which will be my next post) and tonight, a pizza. Sometimes a girl just needs to eat.
Alright, on to the actual post…
Guess what everyone? WE GOT A BREAD MAKER!!! Ariel had been telling us for months that she was going to get her mom to send us the one they never used and we finally got it delivered all the way from B.C. earlier this week. It just so happens that this is the same bread maker that we have at home, so whenever the little thing churns, I get super nostalgic for the times when my mom would make fresh bread when I was young (I would always pick away at the bread before we were supposed to eat it, that’s why there were always holes in the crust, sorry mom).
Anyways, since I have been dying to use this miracle machine for a while now, I decided making pizza dough in it was the best way to begin my bread maker adventures. Britt found a great recipe online and we decided to go splitsies on the dough and make two different delicious kinds of pizza.
I was originally planning on making a margarita pizza, but considering I’m not a huge fan of basil (the main ingredient in this kind of pizza) I decided to sort of improvise on this recipe. I splurged on a delicious $8 mozzarella ball which melted into the most smooth yet chewy perfect cheese I have ever eaten in my life. When I arranging the ingredients on this pizza I was being slightly ridiculous, perfectly aligning the spinach and peppers in a circular flower pattern. Ariel gave me a few weird looks, but in the end I think it worked out for the best! If you can’t tell from the picture, there is mozza cheese, baby spinach, red peppers, grilled chicken and red onion on the pizza. Also, I added the red onion just so this pizza didn’t have a Christmas colour theme, but in the end it actually multiplied the tastiness by 10!
Special thanks goes out to Mer-Face (Ariel) for helping hold my pizza while I took pictures of it! Balancing this baby on the patio wall would not have been easy, so I was mucho grateful! Also, she got a new profile picture, bonus!
