Last night, Quin and I stayed in, made a homemade pizza and watched
the Super Bowl The Help. We both got over that New Year’s Eve feeling of having to be somewhere, with people, eating and drinking, watching The Game. Since we couldn’t care less about watching football and didn’t feel like pigging out on unhealthy foods, we did our own thing. Though homemade pizza isn’t quite as incredible as a wood fired Italian pizza, ours was healthy at least! We used the wheat dough recipe from Baking Illustrated- Cooks Illustrated. The ticket is getting the crust super-duper thin, and probably using a pizza stone – though we didn’t have one.
