This post is in two parts. First was our amazing dinner at California Pizza Kitchen in Tempe. For starters Becky ordered the dumplings.
The second part of the post is baking a pizza from the book. I won’t reproduce the recipe here, but the dough is a little different from other pizza dough recipes. The topping was supposed to be pepperoni, mushroom and sausage. I had made some pasta sauce earlier in the week with sausage, mushroom and red peppers. I just spread that on instead and then grated cheddar and gruyere cheese on top. It cooked in 10 minutes.
This was so good! The dough is soft and light, no hard pieces of crust. It puffed up considerably in the oven, so I would make it thinner next time. As for the all-in-one topping, it turned out rather well. I might start keeping some pasta sauce aside to use on pizza in a hurry.
We will be making this again and are looking forward to making lots of the recipes in the book. It’s not just pizza, there’s salads and some great desserts too.
We are off traveling for a few days, so till next time…Happy baking!
