that’s amore


So, I made more bread dough.

This time, I decided to make it with 3 1/2 cups white flour and 3 cups whole wheat flour.

It definitely turned out more dense, but still really good.

I need to branch out a bit more in regards to application, however, as I made loaves and pizza crust.  Again.


Tonight’s pizza turned out amazing.

In part because of the dough (see how round I was able to make it this time?) but mostly because of the kick-ass pizza sauce I made.

I’ve added pizza sauce to my list of “Things to Make Myself“.

Not only was this recipe delicious, but it was super-easy and cost all of about a dollar.


Pizza Sauce

1 can tomato paste
3/4 c water
3 tbsp parmesan
1-2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp honey
3/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp marjoram
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

*  Put all ingredients into your blender and purée until smooth.
*  Makes about 2 cups.


Recipe Notes:
I think, for the future, I might make myself a large jar of the herb/spice mix.   That way, all I’d have to do is measure out 2 tsp of the stuff to the remaining ingredients, instead of dragging out half a dozen jars.

Oh, and don’t worry about the raw garlic ‘bite’ of the raw sauce.  It totally mellows out as the pizza cooks.
