Our Cookbook Book Club
met last night
And it was pizza!
We had a guest, Kevin -- a pizza maestro
to teach us about crust.
He first explained how to properly make a crust
And then with the dough he had prepared earlier,
we each got our own blob . . .
And Kevin taught us how to make it into a pizza
We watched as he showed us how to take our blob
And make it into a pizza shape!
Kevin demonstrated the peel technique
We all brought toppings to put on the pizza
Some of us were more simple in our choices
I'm a pepperoni girl!
While others were more adventurous
(notice how "round" her pizza is!)
Adding green peppers to hers
Angela and Donna saucing up their pizzas
While Barbara was the most individualistic --
She made hers square
She used a white sauce instead of a red sauce!
Once topped, all the rounds (or oblongs) of dough were put into the oven to bake
Under Kevin's watchful eye!
Mine, fresh out of the oven
All pizzas were cut into smaller pieces so we could sample!
The table was full of pizzas
And we couldn't find one that we didn't like
They were all good!
Of course, the Cookbook Book Club couldn't meet
without a dessert
And Rita provided one!
Peaches 'N Cream No-Bake Cheesecake
A perfect dessert after lots of pizza!
It was a fun evening
Lots of laughter
Lots of flour
(over a lot of us)
And plenty of good food!
A big thank you
to Rhonda for arranging for our dough-master Kevin
to come and teach us
to Rita and Joe for letting us use Kennedy Gym
for it had enough ovens that we could all eat at the same time
to Rita for bringing the wonderful dessert
for it wouldn't be Cookbook Book Club without a sweet!
And especially to Kevin (and his wife, Michelle)
for teaching us about pizza dough
for bringing the dough
It was a wonderful evening
And one of the best Cookbook Book Clubs ever!
