Pizza for Dinner
Today, I am running short on time, but I did manage to make the TwD recipe for dinner tonight, Pizza with Onion Confit.
The dough was easy to make. I made the sponge at 1 pm and added the discard from my stiff sourdough starter. Then, I got the onion confit cooking.
After an hour and a half, it was nicely bubbly.
At 3pm, I mixed the final dough. Around 4pm, I turned on the oven with my baking stone inside and started getting the remainder of the topping ingredients together.
The dough was ready to be shaped at 4:30. I made just half of the recipe of onion because I didn’t want to overwhelm the boys with it. Then, I added salami, artichokes, roasted red peppers, olives, and crumbled feta.
15 minutes after I slid the first one in the oven, we were ready to eat. It was delicious. I think my topping mix leaned heavily to the salty side of things and, as long as I am being really honest, I found the crust to be a tad tough. However, it was really nicely crunchy and stiff on the bottom. I liked the confit. It was a nice alternative to tomato sauce, which has been banned from my diet. Overall, I am not sure I could say this was the best pizza I have ever had or made, but it was a good dinner, so you’ll hear no complaints from me. You can find the recipe here. The recipe made two very nicely sized pizzas, so I will be having it again for lunch tomorrow. Cold, because I will be out of the house. I wonder how it will taste then?
