Pizza on its way


Im finally getting somewhere. A trip to the garden supplies shop this morning saw me return with five bags of paving sand for the foundation of my pizza oven. Must have looked a bit odd with the camera... LOL. Ahh, *the things we do for blogs* After digging out the base which took me a whole day, in between feeding the boy and ferrying dozens of bucket loads of good rich loam into other parts of the garden. The wheelbarrow is a bit tricky for these kinds of jobs as the garden has many steps, so buckets it is. I removed the chardonnay vine which was in the way and never really fruited well and the top layer of edging stones in order to mortar in the bricks and will return them to finish off the base.


The idea of having a whole baking day really appeals to me and opening up the use of the oven to friends who want to bake bread too sounds like a great way to justify some pizzas in between and a glass of wine or two along the way and is about as perfect as a day can get. Thinking that a lot of my posts are about food...

Anyways, due to everyone being outside busy the inside is looking a bit like a heap. But its the weekend so no point cleaning yet, it can definitely wait until Monday.

Ooh how exciting!

I can just taste the crispy crusts and feel the oozy cheese...

My favourite flavour, goats cheese, sun blushed tomato and fresh rocket with chilli flakes!
What time shall I be there? I'll bring a nice bottle of chilled Rosé...

If I smell Pizza in the hills as Im riding though in March , Ill be investigating. So if a guy on a recumbent trike with a trailer and solar panels and stuff rolls into your driveway, DONT PANIC.....

Feta, pumpkin, sundried tomato,and spinich ....yum.

Do you drink port?

Kel said...

LOL. i drink anything! ( well, except the worm...)thtas an interesting thought Phil, how are you going to manage steep hills, i imagine they are more difficult on a recumbent and they are not always avoidable?
