This month the Daring Bakers followed through with a challenge that Rosa of Rosa’s Yummy Yums originally was supposed to host with Sher at What did you eat and Glenna at A Fridge Full of Food, but unfortunately Rosa ended up going it alone as Sher passed away suddenly in July and Glenna decided to leave the Daring Bakers. Sher had shared her idea for this challenge and Rosa decided to continue with it in honor of Sher. This month we all made pizza like a Pizzaiolo!
This turned out to be a great challenge. I was quite nervous with the tossing because the first pizza I “tried” to toss ended up stretching too much and it put a hole in the dough! Therefore, I didn’t attempt to toss the pizza in the air (it would have ended up on the ceiling anyway I am sure!). I did however stretch it out with my hands and then put it on the stone.
Our friends Randy & Amanda came over the evening we made the pizza to help us eat it. I had everyone participate in making their own pizzas. Even Grumpy (but I didn’t take a pic of him making it, he probably would have growled at me – lol).
He probably would be disgusted if he saw this photo here, but hey, the rest of us are here and you all might think Grumpy is never around (and he was here for the MKMW post but I just didn’t take his photo!) when I cook for company!
This is the final result of Grumpy’s pizza. His looked the best (well, this is the photo that came out the best). My camera was on it’s last legs when doing this challenge and I am lucky to have had any photos at all!
You can view the recipe for the pizza dough on Rosa’s site. To see what all the other Daring Bakers did with their pizzas (and many were very unique – I was very traditional and we all know why!) check out the Daring Baker Blogroll.
