than eating at restaurants, and usually more tasty, if you play your cards right.
we started by making the dough on thursday night, using this recipe.
we took the dough out on saturday night. and formed it into flat pies.
i made the sauce using tomato paste, garlic, basil, olive oil, sugar, salt, and lots of hot peppers.
we sauteed frozen artichokes in balsamic vinegar and garlic.
then we sauteed the mushrooms in olive oil
gerard put some sauce on a pizza
i got a pizza stone, because i am serious about making pizza.
it turned out pretty great.
one of my more successful culinary experiments.
i asked mary if she would pay money for it, and she said… yes!
then we played cards after a brief field trip to a home gallery where i watched a cat version of star wars.
it was fun.
we are really competitive.
mary learned how to play rummy
gerard is a cardshark… during sharkweek.
i am pleased it is sweater season, btw.
