Last night we had a family dinner as my brother-in-law was celebrating his 30th. We had home-made Italian pizza made with some Italian passata and the rest were English sourced ingredients. It was a thoroughly enjoyable meal. I must say that it does ring true in our family that there is no such thing as too much pizza. I don’t know how many pizzas were made, I lost count. All but two slices were eaten last night, by some rather hungry individuals.
One of the favourite toppings that was included in the line-up last night was caramelised onion and anchovies. Pizza Margherita was another choice, as well as Margherita with spicy salami. The spice lovers probably would have liked a more spicy salami used. There was also a potato and rosemary pizza.
My daughter assisted her uncle making the dough. Yes it was his birthday but he wanted to make pizza to celebrate his birthday. It is a rather labour intensive dish when you make it at home, but home-made pizza is truly delicious.
