Daring Bakers Challenge – Pizza

Gosh, I totally forgot that today’s the posting day for the daring bakers challenge. I almost missed it!
When this month’s hostess Rosa’s Yummy Yums revealed this month’s challenge, I was very excited to find out that it is pizza. Currently every Friday night is Pizza night in my house, so I am always on a lookout for pizza recipes.

Just like last month’s challenge, this recipe is taken from Peter Reinhart’s The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. One of the challenge of this month is to take a photo of us tossing the pizza into the air. Hmmm… obviously mine is missing because my toss-up was a total failure!! Haha! The dough ended up with lots of holes!! In the end I ended up just stretching the dough.

I only made half the recipe because I ran out of bread flour. I wish I had made more because they turned out so good! I baked the pizza on my baking stone, so they turned out really crispy. I tried to make it as thin as possible because that is my favorite type of crust – thin & crispy.

I made 2 types of pizza. The first is the caramelized onion, bacon and ham pizza for me and the hubby.

For my little girl, I made her favorite cheese pizza. Sorry for the bad photo. I had to take a quick photo before the little one grabbed it.

In conclusion, everyone loved the pizza. I will definitely make it again. Next time I will make the whole recipe so that I can make a dessert pizza.

    At least you attempted the toss. There is nothing wrong with stretching the dough, that is what I always do. I place the dough on my knuckles and just gently tug at it. Works like a charm. Your pizzas look really delicious. Well done.

    Great job on the challenge. I ended up having to stretch my dough too!
