Daring Bakers October Challenge in memory of Sherry “Sher” Cermak

This month's challenge has a little bit of sadness attached to it... we lost a Daring Baker... but wherever you are Sher, thank you so much for leaving us with this amazing challenge and thank you Rosa for making everything possible, this has been an amazing challenge!!

By now... you are probably asking yourself well.. what is this challenge you keep talking about?!!... WELL... BAKE YOUR PIZZA LIKE A REAL PIZZAIOLO.. and I did like a real pizzaiolo!!!

The dough is not hard at all to make, you can visit Rosa's Yummy Yums for the recipe... you start it one day ahead and then you get this amazing wonderfully malleable dough, I had no trouble with it whatsoever it was just delightful to work with ( I did make a little adjustment though, I traded one cup of all purpose flour for 1 cup of whole wheat flour).

When the time came to stretch the pizza... I was a little bit nervous but got the hang of it pretty quickly and had a lot of fun with it ^_^ ... although I might have ended with a lot of flour over me




One pizza was a bruschettta pizza with pesto as a base, tomatoes, red onions, fresh basil, oregano, feta cheese and mozzarella and the second one was pesto base, prosciutto, red onion, tomatoes, feta, fontina and mozzarella cheese.. they were both incredibly gooood!!!






Oh once again... belonging to the Daring Bakers pays off.. looove making my own pizza like a real pizzaiolo... maybe I missed my calling have you? you can visit all the other Daring Bakers and find out what they did
