Annie and Blanton showed true bravado by taking on the daunting task of making dough. Equipped with a dough hook and active yeast - they were successful in 3 out of 4 attempts. The second batch tried unsuccessfully to take over Annie's kitchen, but shrunk back in fear at the sight of Blanton's mean dough hook hand!!!
Unbeknownst to all but himself, we had an expert among us. Knox worked at Mellow Mushroom through high school and college and proved himself to be an excellent dough tosser. Go Knox!!
Yorke made a delicious and zestfully spicy tomato sauce to adorn our pizzas. Pesto was also on hand for a different sauce option.
Other toppings included:
- goat cheese
- caramelized onions
- red peppers
- pine nuts
- fresh mozzarella
With the possibilities endless, we got started!! Each duo was in charge of one pie and then everyone came together to make a "We are the World" pizza (appropriate since the Haiti Relief telethon was on in the background).
