Pizza Nite

tomato basil sauce + sun dried tomato + kalamata olive + onion + spinach + sea salt

It has been so easy to do pizza night now that i make the dough ahead of time (still using Peter Rinehart’s dough recipe from the Bread Baker’s Apprentice).  Tonight i used my mother in law’s shaping technique – pressing the dough out into a disc instead of stretching it by hand.  The result was a MUCH more circular shaped, even thickness pizza.  I shaped them directly on parchment paper, slid them onto the pizza stone in a preheated 550 F oven, baked for 2 1/2 minutes, then removed the parchment paper and baked directly on the stone for another 5 minutes.  My personal pizza (photographed above) was from a much smaller ball of dough than joe’s and basically wafer-thin.  I enjoyed it, but it was hard to appreciate the crust when it was the consistancy of a cracker.
