EXPERIMENTING WITH BLUE CAPUTO 00 FLOUR – WEEK 1

The weather this week was bad!  It was cold and if it wasn't sleeting it was wet and windy.  Roll on the Spring.  Making Pizza outside in the midst of Winter isn't so bad though.  The heat of the oven soon warms you up and because you get so focused on the fuel and the pizza you forget about the weather!  Owning a pizza oven is a good way to get outdoors in the Winter.  Before, I used to hibernate but now - I'm outside and enjoying cooking outdoors. This week we made a Chorizo pizza using the new Blue…

My First Written Pizza Blog!!!

Welcome to my first blog! There is so much coming up in 2019 and this new blog is part of all the new things that I’m really excited about that are happening this year!!
