Pizza Dough


Friday night I threw an impromptu pizza party. I made my own dough for the first time. Usually I use Jiffy brand boxed dough.

I made 2 pizzas using a Neapolitan dough recipe from a pizza recipe book I use. It turned out really well for my first time. The pizza pictured above is a no-sauce pizza with tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, parsley, capers, and mozzarella and drizzled with olive oil.

I made 5 total pizzas. They were:

  • The one above
  • Neapolitan dough with zucchini, goat cheese, garlic and I used sautéed shallots. It also had dried oregano and some lemon juice. Also, no sauce.
  • Jumbo shrimp pizza with lemon zest, basic tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.
  • A pepperoni pizza with mushrooms
  • A mushroom pizza.

You should have let me know you weren’t invited next time so I can get your ass over here.

During dinner, Jo-neat used the term “Therapeutic Abortion”. It is the term given to an abortion in which a pregnant woman’s health is compromised, and the ugly choice of an abortion becomes necessary to save the mother’s life. Continue reading “Therapeutic Abortion”
