Starting the year with a light and hands-on post–by rolling dough for pizza. My friend Laura gave me the recipe when I was staying with her in Italy.
Paul, my brother-in-law, made a delicious Maranzano tomatoes salsa with marjoram. Ingredients were added on the flat bases and were stone-baked in his special ceramic smoker.
Pizza numero uno composition: mozzarella, cheddar, mascarpone, bacon, and, rosemary. Pizza numero dos: mozzarella, prime-rib strips from new year’s eve dinner, shallots, and, rosemary.
And here are the pictures–of course Tyler and Yax helped with the preparations.
