The other night I was feeling starved (never put a pregnant woman on a poop-friendly diet), and started day dreaming of food.
That's when I remembered Beignets. I love them. I miss them. I want them.
Sure enough I ended up finding a recipe here
I had to mix bread flour and regular all-purpose flour. And I warn you its HARD to mix all the ingredients together, it takes some physical labor. Plus, the recipe makes WAY too many beignets, so I suggest you just make half. In the end, I put the dough in the fridge and just fried the beignets in the morning.
And it was WORTH IT:
That's when I realized how much I love dough.
Throughout my cooking history, I never ever made dough. It just scared me. But not anymore!
I got caught doing this:
Yes. I made a lovely pizza from scratch.
I found the dough recipe in my lovely new purchase: The Joy of Cooking.
I brushed the top of the dough with olive oil, and added a mix of tomato paste and red pesto sauce.
Then I carmelized some onions. And by some I mean A LOT:
I topped the onions off with some Italian herbs, black pepper, and rosemary.
Then I shredded some mozzarella and sliced some pineapples:
Top it off with LLOOOOVVEEE:
Pop it in the oven (HOT) for 10 minutes.

It really was delicious.
