These baby pigs just crack me up.. Just had to share the cuteness.. and a little laugh. 😉
After not making artisan bread for a couple years, I returned to something I love… baking bread! My return to my craft began with one of my favourites… French Baguettes! And let’s face it… nothing beats a delicious crusty baguette! 😉
After a slight hiatus, the pizza adventures continues with The Trattorian.. aka: a meat lovers pizza! 😉
The Trattorian, although considered a traditional pizza here in North America, my husband (who is Italian) says it is not something you would find in Italy. But that didn’t stop us!
First I started off by making a whole new batch of Southern Italian pizza dough. I put several balls into the freezer for future use. Then I began the prep for The Trattorian.
First, I cooked a spicy Italian sausage, and slow cooked hickory-smoked bacon until it was crisp.
I then brushed my prepped pizza dough with my Herbed Grill Oil, sprinkled finely grated Parmesan cheese, and shredded Mozzarella cheese.
I then dropped spoonfuls of the Chunky Tomato Basil Sauce on top of the pizza. I added thin slices of pepperoni, thin slices of the spicy Italian sausage, thin slices of yellow peppers, and super thin slices of onion. I also scattered torn pieces of the bacon all over the pizza.
I then cooked the pizza in the oven until it was perfectly cooked. Yummy!! 😀
This week I made Chocolate Cornflake Crunch Bars… Yummy! They are a simple and easy to make treat, that combines chocolate, toasted shredded coconut, and toasted almond slivers with cornflakes. 🙂
