In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

Easy As Pie...

 Today I decided to try a new dough recipe, because I'm kind of picky about the consistency of my pizza dough. I don't like it too thin and chewy, but I don't like it too thick and bread like either.
I pulled out this little deck of cards and selected the
"Neapolitan-style" pizza dough. The author says that this is the style favored by Italian and New York pizza bakers. I don't know about those guys, so I will have to see for myself.

 The trick to this crust is the use of a little cake flour. The author states that this is the way to create a "tender" crust.

 After the dough had risen I formed and covered it with sauce.

 I added some cheese and more cheese, then topped it off with pepperoni.

Finally, the moment of truth.
My first thought was that the crust was too thick, but after taking a bite; I changed my mind.
It wasn't too cake or bread like. It was a little chewy, but it was tender as promised.

If you would like to try it for yourself, scroll to the top of this page and click on the recipe tab.

Love & Prayers,
