Impromptu Pizza Night
WHAT is with the weather eh? The freak snowstorm here yesterday totally threw a wrench in our plans. Jesse and I were supposed to have dinner with Karis and Alex but that did not end up happening. Instead Jesse came here and we ended up making homemade pizzas! I love when you can make something fun and delicious with the things you always have in the cupboard and a few yummy extras.
I kinda love those nights when your plans go wrong but something else really fun happens anyways :) I will warn you that there are lots of pictures with this one so be prepared. It was just too much fun making the pizzas. I made homemade pizza dough with white and whole wheat flour. We threw on mushrooms, hot peppers, sweet peppers, cheese (goat for me of course), pepperoni (for Jesse) and potato. Basically you can just say that we were playing with our food!
Hope you stayed safe and warm. I love you so much!

1 tbsp salt
3-3 1/2 cups flour

While the dough is rising cut up desired pizza toppings. Divide the dough, roll, sauce, top and bake for about 10-15 minutes at 350 C.
