So we’re trying out some new things at the restaurant end of my business endeavors. Namely, pizza! Having never made a pizza in my life (bar a few “make your owns” using pre-frozen bases, uck!) I was a wee bit apprehensive but, after a bit of reasearch I decided to give it a go. The result can be seen above.
For the crust i just appropriated the bread recipe from earlier on, minus oil and salt (enough of that on top!) and, of course rolled the whole thing dead flat! I thought I might try a square pizza, I’ve seen them overseas before, but never here in New Zealand. It all turned out pretty well, don’t you think?
By the way: this one’s topped with:
- Kalamata olives
- Cheeses (mozerella, feta & edam)
- Fresh cut tomato
Plus of course, plenty of herbs and cracked pepper! For the base I simply took a tomato bisque we use in another dish and thickened it up by blending in more peeled tomatoes and lots of rosemary (a fair amount of simmering too!).
So we chucked the pizzas on the menu and all seems to be going pretty well, sold a heap last night, maybe it’s the start of a new thing for us…
