Pizza night with obligatory kitten shot

I haven't done a pizza post in a while. I made one last Monday night, with organic bread flour I got from Penny's Market last Saturday.



All kneaded and going into the oven to proof!



I don't have a pizza peel, so I use a round non-stick pan to slide the dough onto the pizza stone in the 500F oven. I brushed olive oil with garlic (from my garden) and oregano over the crust.


I decided to make Greek pizza.


Some mozzarella and yellow pepper.


Green olives, and local goat milk feta from Glengarry Fine Cheese.


Red onions and tomatoes and voilà!


Not the most beautiful crust in the world, but tasty!


And to drink? Young's Double Chocolate Stout!


Speaking of alcohol, our neighbour gave us some of the maple syrup he made this year, in this bottle:


I think I should keep it in the breast pocket of my parka and take several swigs a day!


And here is your kitten shot:


Emily is veeeeeeeeery long!

    1. Howzabout homemade ice cream? Gordon whipped up some chocolate chip/coconut, which is why I need to go for a two-mile walk...

  5. What the hell is chocolate stout?

    The pizza looks yummy and we expect:-) that at our next visit, which will be probably within the next 2 weeks if everything goes well with my Paperwork for a German-Passport), since Gordon has to sign them all. Just Copies of my school and work I did back then.

  9. You just can't beat a home made pizza. i get really lazy and just use bead. I know that the crust can be a crucial part of the pizza.

    1. Hey, nothing wrong with cheating on the crust! Naan bread from Loblaws is good for that!
