We started this blog on a Saturday. We were supposed so start it on a Friday with our first post being about pizza. We made the pizza but it was something of a disaster; out of date yeast, resorting to pre-packed pizza base mix, forgetting to leave the dough to rest…you get the idea.

But we were determined and this time we were prepared. On Friday night we went to the Italian deli and bought mozarella, two types of salami, olives and artichokes. On Saturday we bought one of those oven-trays with the holes in and we made pizza. It was brilliant. Next time though we need a thicker tomato sauce, less mushrooms and more cheese.

We had the pizza with salad but that just got in the way. Pizza should be eaten alone. Or with a Stephen.

    Handy Hint :

    My mum never uses yeast for her pizza dough, instead she uses baking powder, which means if you are short of time, you don’t have to leave the dough to rise!

    Oooh, that is a handy hint, thanks. So, what do you do? Just replace the yeast with baking powder?

    This looks great!! i hope it tastes as good as it looks. Stick with the yeast, baking powder is for cakes!!! Good work, keep it up!

    Hi Kerri,

    Frankie thinks he is an Italian stallion who knows everything about Italian cooking!

    However answer to your question is yes, replace yeast with baking powder. A teaspoon and a half should do! Good Luck!
