Pizza, Pizza

On Christmas Eve, Peggy and I made homemade pizza for dinner. That got Ed to thinking that their has to be a way to make "parlor style" pizza at home. So, he has set off on the task. He has watched Alton Brown's pizza making episode many times and has read a lot on the internet about yeast and such and is trying to perfect pizza dough at home. So far it hasn't worked out! He's made 4 batches. He went to Home Depot to buy a stone (that broke while in the oven). He's cooked it on the rack. It has all burned! Each time the dough gets better, but not yet "it." It has our whole household in suspense! He even made a thing to put the pizza in the oven with and take it out with. I'll let you know the outcome.

We're sorry to hear about the loss of Ed's grandma and we missed you today.

This whole 'pizza' thing is really something for me because Clint is 100% not interested in anything to do with the kitchen or in the kitchen, etc.

I wish Ed all the best in his endeavors. Keep us posted!

I, too, am really interested in hearing the outcome of Ed's experiments!! Maybe his work can help us all make yummier homemade pizza! Sorry to hear about the stone. argh When working for PC I learned that a stone can have a microscopic/invisible fracture in it that then busts when the stone is heated. argh All that for that....
