Goodbye frozen pizza!


On a Friday evening I often have pizza, as I rarely feel like cooking anything more extravagant. Last Friday I made my own for the first time, and was surprised by how easy it was and how good it tasted.

Admittedly I bought a ready-made base, but on top put a tomato and basil sauce, grated cheese, salami, oak-smoked ham torn into pieces and a bit more cheese. Into the oven it went on 200C for about 20 minutes, and it was done. It was certainly a lot less salty than the frozen pizzas I have had in the past, and overall probably quite healthy. Next time I’ll add more interesting toppings for example peppers and red onion, but for a first go it was fine.


It went well with a 2007 oak aged Malbec from the Mendoza region of Argentina (13%), and Bruce Lee’s “Way of the Dragon” on DVD.
