Pizza Competition

8 Nov

For weeks, Fernanda and Len have been discussing and debating their pizza recipes.

  • Flour: O or OO
  • Yeast: Dry or Fresh
  • Essential toppings
  • Number of kneading times
  • Mozzarella: wet or dry
  • Thickness of dough
  • And so on.

How to resolve? A friendly pizza competition would be held and Carlo and I would be the judges. I know, I know, two judges does not make for a legitimate panel, but we weren’t complaining.

Fernanda and Len each shopped and then made their dough (pasta in Italian) separately, then came together for the preparation.

To add to the fun, I purchased an apron for each of them.

Who won?

And after several long hours of anticipation, they were ready.

Carlo and I, being fairly smart people, deemed it a tie! And actually, Carlo and I were the winners because they cooked and we ate.

Antipasto, vino rosso, and homemade pizza – what a great way to spend an evening with friends. And yes, they are already planning for next year’s competition.

Ciao,
