Pizza tonight! We made the dough, then went shopping while it rose and when we got home, all we needed to do was heat up the oven, add the ingredients and cook them. Kerri made a tomato sauce by cooking down some cherry tomatoes with garlic and oil, which worked rather well.

The first pizza had olives, salami and mozarella on it. This one didn’t quite fit into the pizza tray, which meant that it had a lot of crispy crust around the edges which we dipped into olive oil. Yum.

The second pizza had anchovies, capers, chilli, lemon zest and mozarella on it, which was a recipe we’d previously used for a tart. It didn’t seem to work quite so well on the pizza; maybe the thicker dough diluted the flavour or the tomato made it too sweet. Hard to tell quite why. It has potential though and I’m sure we’ll try it again, as we really loved the tart that we’d made with it.

    These look great! What kind of pizza tray do you have, can you recommend one? I’ve been wanting to get one for a while now.

    Thanks Lizzie. We have a pizza stone that we got a couple of years ago in Fenwick. We usually just use that one but as we were making two pizzas this time we also used a round baking tray with holes in.

    Lots of people talk about how brilliant the stone is but I can’t tell the difference between pizza cooked on there or on the ordinary baking tray really.
