Home Made Pizza

Ross & I got to use our new kitchen for the first time tonight. We cooked together, which is something we love to do, and made ourselves some pizzas. The kitchen is quite small, especially compared to what we are used to, but it is functional, and if we keep things neat, there is enough room for the two of us to cook together.

Our pizzas were basically the same, except Ross's had a bit of ham and salami on the bottom and mine didn't.

This is Ross's pizza pre-oven.

This one is mine after it came out of the oven. Now we have made pizzas before, but just quite traditional ones, with tomato paste on the bottom, ham, pineapple, maybe some mushrooms, and grated cheese. This was different.

We started with Lebanese bread as the base. Then spread a layer of re-fried beans as the base. Ross moved on to the meat. I started with a layer of baby spinach leaves. On top of that I put red capsicum, green capsicum, mushrooms, sun dried tomato's, and cracked black pepper. Then we drizzled salsa over all the veggies and topped it with some cheese chunks. 15 minutes in the oven, and we enjoyed one of the best meals we have had in a long time. I can't imagine ever ordering from Dominos again...

Who'd have thought eating vego would be so tastey! So much healthier than the store bought (you won't have the MSG hangover like you do with the others)
