The First Pizza

Matt's birthday is coming up and he recently received his first present - Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day. To say that he was excited is a bit of an understatement.

We started buying ingredients two weeks ago, just waiting for the day when Matt could buy the book. When he got it in the mail from the fabulous Clan Gabel, he went to work.

He mixed up his first batch of dough last night (because we keep our heat set at 65 degrees, it took five hours to rise instead of two). We considered making bread today, but we still have half a loaf, and we had a hankerin' for pizza.

Here's our first attempt. It's not pretty, but it sure was tasty!! If you're looking for tips on making your own pizza, visit my sister's blog here. She did a whole series on it.

I'm looking forward to Matt making his first loaf of bread. He's pretty excited. I'd like to video tape it for you (he's SO funny!), but I'm 146% sure he wouldn't go for that (but I'll try).

YUMMY! Get yourself a pizza stone and I promise you will NEVER feel the need to order pizza out again! I know a Pampered Chef consultant if you need one....
