Pizza Party In Portland

It has been awhile since I posted about Pizza... So I figured it was high time that I revisit the subject again. Especially since I was making pizza with my niece.

Ok, I did make pizza several months ago at my other brother's place, but I had forgotten my camera. Thus there were no pictures of the happy little sauce smeared, pizza smeared faces...

I was determined not to make the same mistake twice.... So I loaded up all my goodies and a very large portion of Pizza Dough, along with my camera, and toddled myself on over to my niece's house where we had a pizza night.... :)

It was pretty much the basic pizza fair, nothing outrageous like Eggs Benedict Pizza, Squash Blossom and Leek, Fig and Rossini or Lox & Caviar. Just good old Meat & Vegetable pizza. Which is the best kind when you are consuming Cinder Cone from Dechutes brewery. ;)

According to my brother, the empty bottle makes a pretty good rolling pin too....

Pizza Dough
Sliced Bell Peppers - Green, Red & Yellow
Cured Meats - Salame, Pepperoni & Canadian Bacon
Sliced Roma Tomatoes
Basil Leaves
Mushrooms, sliced
Black Olives, Sliced
Shredded Cheese Mix - Provolone, Mozzarella, Pecorino Romano, Parmegiano-Reggiano, Grana Padano
Shredded Parmegiano-Reggiano
Pizza Sauce (Tomato paste, a little water, Oregano, Thyme, Minced Garlic & Rosemary with a drizzle of olive oil)
1 Very excited Niece
1 Very Hungry Nephew

So here, in order of baking, are the pizza creations. Both before and after.....

Lillyann....

& Maryann.... Ladies first, after all ;)

The missing piece is in my 19 month old nephew's mouth.... LOL
He couldn't seem to get enough of it either.

How lucky your niece and nephews are to have an uncle who makes pizza with them. You are making special memories for them. Oh, your pizzas look wonderful too.

Joanna said...

Pizza making as a group effort is so much fun. You have some very cute assistants. Great idea, and awesome pictures.

Bob said...

Awesome. Make it yourself pizza parties are a good time.

That's so much fun. My daughter's been making the dough with me ever since she was 2 (of course noone ate her pizza at the time), now she makes heart shaped pizza (so girly :)))
