(Anita's) Pizza
Take Two ...

Success the Second Time Around ...

Anita's pizza -- take two

This Pizza Take Two page was born for shame of how my first pizza had to be PUSHED OFF the pizza paddle/spatula (read: almost scraped!!!) ...  

I felt I had to make another one (such hardship there – not!) This time I followed Anita's instructions! I used parchment paper and precooked the pizza crust for a few minutes first ON the paper ON the stone in the oven!

Put Parchment Paper On Spatula

I put the parchment paper on the spatula, cut it down to size and left about a one inch overlap of paper all around. I then placed the crust on it and shaped it so it wasn't hanging off the spatula/paddle! There's the dough, in the photo, ready for the oven, sat on the parchment paper.

After the pre-bake in the oven, I brought it out and added my sauce, some sautéed onions; green, red, yellow peppers, and mushrooms.

Put Parchment Paper
On Spatula

I put the parchment paper on the spatula, cut it down to size and left about a one inch overlap of paper all around.

I then placed the crust on it and shaped it so it wasn't hanging off the spatula/paddle!

There's the dough, in the photo above, ready for the oven, sat on the parchment paper.

After the pre-bake in the oven, I brought it out and added my sauce, some sautéed onions; green, red, yellow peppers, and mushrooms.





Prick the Dough!

I pricked the dough to stop bubbles from forming, then put it in the oven and baked it for 3 minutes. I then added the cheese, and then the olives, plus some of the veggies I'd saved aside to put purposely on top of the cheese.

TIP: next time I shall bake it for five minutes as my cheese ended up getting a little too brown for my liking because I was waiting for the crust to turn just the right shade of 'done'. Into the oven it went for about 15 minutes – but see the TIP above about baking the crust first for probably five minutes. I forgot to mention earlier – I've been using the oven at 450°F instead of 475°F. No real reason.

Anita and James love to cook – they used to go to county fairs with provisions which were eagerly eaten up by hungry fair-goers!

Please Visit Anita's Site:
Rustic Simplicity

I just wanted to add this, Anita and James are also making lots of rustic goodies like coat hangers, and storage cabinets – some with stained-glass inserts.

When you go to their site, you'll see their super carved cabinets with old-fashioned hinges.

All pieces are made with such loving care, it's a wonder they can bear to part with them!
