Out and About

So…I seem to have abandoned my blog for, holy crap, almost a month. Here’s some of what I’ve been up to:

Note to self: Add basil *after* the pizza comes out of the oven.

It’s no secret that pizza is one of my all-time favorite foods, and yet before our last move, I’d never made it from scratch.  As in, make the dough at home and EVERYTHING.  Despite having almost every kitchen gadget known to man, I do not own a pizza stone, a pizza peel, or even a freaking pizza cutter.  But you know what? I’ve had really good results with just a plain ol’ baking sheet.  I’ve been using this pizza crust recipe and I love it.  Last week I was lazy (and out of olive oil!) so I used Pillsbury refrigerated dough.  People, do not use this stuff.  I don’t know if it has to do with the recommended baking temperature or what, but the dough was not crispy and crunchy, and underneath the toppings it was pretty much soggy to the point where I couldn’t pick up my slice with my hands.  Making your own crust is super easy and completely worth it!

I’ve been making more of an effort to get out of the house and meet people and explore our new city.  I found a fabulous (yet tiny!) park this weekend and took the boy and the pup out there last night to see it.

And finally, a gratuitous puppy shot:

Best dog ever!

I can’t wait for the upcoming weekend…lots of fun stuff going on!
