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....
Sliced Bell Peppers - Green, Red & Yellow
Cured Meats - Salame, Pepperoni & Canadian Bacon

1 Very excited Niece
1 Very Hungry Nephew

The missing piece is in my 19 month old nephew's mouth.... LOL
He couldn't seem to get enough of it either.
Me... Cause the pizzaiolo eats last... LOL
Awesome Times! And one VERY happy niece....
