Perfect Pizza

A couple of years ago I discovered the most delightful food whilst travelling around Italy, and no I’m not talking about chocolate covered aubergine. That is something I still have mixed feelings about, even though I ate the food nearly two years ago. I am talking about the lemon covered pizza (and the numerous other pizzas I helped my photographer eat). Since 2018, I’ve visited numerous countries but I have never found another place able to make pizza in the same way; though Bosnia & Herzegovina did come very close.

I’ve learned a lot during this COVID-19 lockdown. Plants are fun to grow, not just eat, and there is a room in the house called a kitchen where food comes from. The second part of that also came with the shock that I have to cook the food … then do the washing up (a hard task since I have really short arms). My photographer doesn’t really enjoy cooking as much as I do, so we have since came up with a compromise and I’m happy to report there is no more washing up for me!

Although they are vegetarian and vegan friendly, I was very surprised when I found out pizza doesn’t grow on trees. That is possibly a good thing because I would simply fill my garden full of pizza trees and eat nothing else. Being slightly more realistic, my photographer bought a box of ingredients to make your own pizza base. I’ve decided to put together my how to guide for making pizza!

  1. To make the pizza base you can buy kits where you just add water, that’s what I did.
  2. Mix it all together in the bowl. So it’s a nice sticky ball of dough.
  3. Cover the board in flour, making a mess is optional, as well as the rolling pin.
  4. Put the dough on the board and flatten it with the rolling pin, I found it helpful to get a human to do this part as it was really hard work!
  5. After making the dough into a big found circle, leave it to rest for 15 minutes (I wasn’t the only one who found the rolling pin hard work).
  6. The best part! Cover the base in tomato sauce and cheese!
  7. Add lots more veggies. I used mushrooms, onions and peppers, along with vegetarian pepperoni.
  8. Put the pizza in the oven, drooling whilst watching the cheese melt is optional.
  9. Ask a human to get the pizza out of the oven and cut it into slices.
  10. Instagram a photograph of the pizza.
  11. Whilst the human is doing the washing up, quickly eat as much of the pizza as you can.
  12. Lie on the sofa in a pizza induced food coma, everything tasted better when it is home made.

I will be using this recipe again to make pizza, but will probably use different toppings. There are so many I want to try, maybe when my plants are fully grown I might be able to use them as pizza toppings.
