We went to the park as usual but came home a little bit earlier because I decided to make pizza for daddy today.
This is my daddy’s recipe for 1 big pizza base;
200 g strong flour
2 g dried yeast
pinch of salt
1 teaspoonful sugar
half tablespoonful oil
80-90 ml lukewarm water
Mix the flour, yeast, salt and sugar in the bowl, pour the oil and water and knead until it becomes smooth. You don’t have to leave the dough to rise if you like a thin crust like my daddy does.
Put the dough on a floured surface and roll out the dough into a large round shape using a rolling pin.
The dough needs to be very thin as it will rise in the oven.
At the same time I make my special tomato sauce.
Today, I am going to use 2 big tomatoes instead of tinned ones and also mushrooms, chopped onion and crushed garlic. When the sauce started simmering I added a bit of tomato ketchup, mayonnaise and sprinkled a pinch of dried Italian herbs, and now it is time to add my secret ingredients, a few pieces of doggie food. (you can leave this out if you don't have any).
On the round base I carefully put the my special tomato sauce evenly and then put your favourite toppings. How does it look? Daddy likes cheese so I put lots of cheese. Do you want more cheese, daddy? I also sprinkled sundried tomatoes and pesto too. They give it a very yummy flavour.
Now, heat the oven to 220 C and bake your pizza for about 10 minutes. I am guarding my pizza so it does not get cremated.
Woof!! Can you smell it? It is cheesy, meaty, and doggy foodie isn’t it? I hope daddy will like Pizza with my special sauce. Bonappetito!!
What? Mummy says that she doesn’t need that much garlic bread but wants a bit of green salad. Some people are awkward aren’t they?
I asked Silky to rustle up something for mummy because Silky loves salady things. She found some green leaf, a tomato, a cucumber and red cabbage in the fridge. That would be enough wouldn’t it?
However, Silky wants to use Pansies for the salad. She likes pansies doesn’t she? Dear, dear...I don’t think mummy wants pansies in her salad, Silky.
