Daring Bakers Make Pizza



Pizza was this month's Daring Bakers' challenge and it couldn't make me happier. Oliver and I have tested quite a few pizza dough recipes and we were glad to try out this one and compare it with the others. We found the dough quite easy to work with (although also quite delicate) and the end result great. We pre-cooked the dough until it started to slightly bubble, and then added our toppings. A simple homemade tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and basil was our pick - simple, bold flavors.. delicious.

You can find the recipe on Rosa's blog who kindly put together this challenge.

Looks great! I pre-cooked my second pizza a bit too which I think helped with the texture. Great idea!

Interesting that you pre-baked the crust. I know a lot of people who do that but I've never tried it. Must keep that on the must-try list!
