- 1 & 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1.5 lbs bread flour
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 & 3/4 Cups Warm Water
Take 1/2 cup of water, sugar, and yeast. Put in a small bowl. Set in a warm place for 5 minutes to proof.
Place the yeast mixture, water & oil in the mixer bowl. Run on the slowest setting. Mix until incorporated. Add the flour to the bowl and mix for 1 min. Add the salt and mix until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl. Divide into 4 pieces and ball up. Lightly oil the dough balls and cover. Let proof until doubled in size.
Here is the crust with too much olive oil on top. Cornmeal on peel. Its ready for the BBQ Sauce.
I took a pizza class at Whole Foods on Tuesday. My hopes is that by taking cooking classes I will be more intersted in meal prep. Chef Phil had a really strange way of ‘rolling’ out the pizza. I’ll try to capture it next time. Unsurprisingly I wasn’t wild about item #2 but the rest were amazing. The BBQ chicken pizza was a big winner so here it goes first.

There was a budget for my companies holiday party this year. The result was a mandatory attendance at a pool hall and a pool tournament. There is nothing about pool, competition, forced workplace socialization that has any appeal to me.
I’m sure that there are people who like playing pool. I expect there is a huge gender bias. I also suspect that the people who like it feel successful at it and did not start playing against their will.
I chalk some of it to my preceived place on the Extraversion-Introversion Spectrum (far far to the Intro)
I’d like to leave you with some reading: Caring for Your Introvert
And assure you that really, I’d like to be left alone.
