Fantastic Bake Along – Pizza party


Happy Saturday everyone!

Once again I am tuning in for the Fantastic Bake Along hosted by Tami @tanglewoodknots and Tracy @itsatsweetday. I pinched the logo from Tracy’s website, I hope it’s okay with you Tracy I just love it! This time, Brenna chose the recipe, dough for a pizza party! You can find the recipe on Tracy’s BAL post here.

I have actually made two very different pizza from this recipe, and both were delicious (I obviously only had one of the two, but my husband said his pizza was great and it did smell delicious).

So, first I made the dough for the pizza. The recipe was super easy to follow and only took about 10 minutes. Then I proofed the dough for slightly longer than the recipe called for (I did 1h instead of 20 min).

You might be wondering why my mixing bowl is on top of another container, well that’s my trick for proofing dough in winter. I boil water and put it in an insulated container, with my bowl on top so that the dough is on top of a warm surface, which make it raise better. It works the charm, even when it’s cold!

Then it was on to rolling the dough out and topping it.

The pizza on the left is my actual pizza. But why is there nothing on it? Because I wanted a white base pizza topped with fresh ingredients! Here are the pizza after cooking

I personally really enjoy a pizza with fresh ingredients, I just love the contrast between a nice warm and crispy crust and the freshness of tomatoes, mozzarella and basil! yum! Dylan had tomato base, bacon bits, mushrooms and cheese and it looked pretty tasty too!

I can’t wait to read about everyone else’s pizza, I hope they have been as successful as mine!

If you are interested in participating, contact Tami or Tracy and you can also follow my Pinterest board where I will be adding all the recipes for the Bake Along.

    • Thanks Tracy! Yours looked super yum too! I really like that technique because it makes the proofing faster as well and I don’t need to worry about outside temperature at all!

    • Haha that’s too funny! Tell him that next time he needs to let you bake the pizza before eating the cheese 😊looking forward to have you join!
