Pizza, Movie, and a Surprise

POST #    1311

Last night I made my first pizza with toppings and it turned out pretty damn good. Using homemade tomato sauce again (also spicy), the pizza was topped with mushrooms and pepperoni. Just like a pizza at Grimaldi's, the mushroom made parts of the crust soggy. I had some issues getting the pizza off the peel, but that might be a combination of waiting too long to get the pizza into the oven and not enough flour.

While eating my tasty pizza, I watched In the Cut. Meg Ryan's in the movie, but it's no Sleepless in Seattle. It's more like the scene at Katz's from When Harry Met Sally - over and over and much more graphic. There's no denying that Meg looked good in this movie despite being 40+.

Towards the end of the movie, I was greeted with a surprise at the door that I thought was my idiot neighbor, but thankfully it was not. The surprise has given me a smile that will carry right up until Monday morning though.

I'll be out of town this weekend enjoying a football game in Michigan. See you when I get back.

A big bag of weed?

corie, i'm going to say that the pizza stone is important, but prob not absolutely necessary. it helps heat the dough very fast so it cooks quickly.

It's good to know that something other than pizza makes you giddy :)

Re: soggy pizzas with mushrooms - I wonder if it has to do with how long you cook the pizza, as well as how thick the crust is. I made a pizza with a ton of stuff (sausage, mushroom, roasted red pepper, spinach, onion), and it turned out a little soggy. Then the next night, I made the exact same pizza , but adjusted the cooking time (shorter) and had a thicker, slightly more uniform crust and it wasn't soggy!

i eat cheese-less pizza (yes, i'm crazy) but your pizza looks so good that i would actually eat a pizza with cheese on it. :)
