A couple of weeks ago, we did a group dinner in the dorm to make a group pizza. Not too much to it, but it was a lot of fun. Nick, Ben, Mary Beth, and Cecilia had gotten various ingredients earlier. It started off with Ben and I kneading the pizza dough (which, being from Whole Foods seemed to be gluten and dairy free). There was a little improvisation – using a pasta sauce jar as a rolling pin, and aluminum foil for a baking sheet. After that, it was fairly simple – adding the marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and other toppings – spinach and tomatoes for the vegetarian pizza, and (huge) pepperoni and some veggies for the meat lovers pizza!
After that, it was pizzas on the foil (in retrospect, we probably should have put some oil on the foil so it wouldn’t stick). It came out and it was pretty good! The outer crust was great, though the center was a little soggier – I suppose we could have had a hotter oven. But besides that, it was a great group meal!
A little later, we added some naan bread pizzas to have some more to go around – they were great too!
