Blogger has been eating my posts all weekend so hopefully that bug has been fixed by now. Fortunately I hadn't posted any recipes over the weekend.
I finally made pizza! It was so easy with my new bread machine. It only takes 50 minutes to make the dough. One of the reasons I've put off making my own crust is that Friday night is pizza night in our house and I work full-time. We don't like to eat dinner late. I can have this done by the time my husband gets home.
I made the whole-wheat version of pizza crusts from my manual and I topped it with jarred sauce, an Italian blend of cheeses, cheddar cheese and then some fresh grated Romano. I also had some pepperoni on hand. I used the screened pizza pans.
I thought it was really good. The crust really reminded me of take-out except that it was whole-wheat. Take-out around here usually isn't cooked right (too soggy and underdone) and the cheese they use can get really greasy. This was so much better.
So I can cross another one off my list of culinary New Year's Resolutions. And I used my bread machine for a third time so I'm halfway to crossing that resolution off the list.
