Saturday was 3.14, which, as we math fans know, is Pi. Hence, Pi Day. What better way to celebrate than Pizza Pie? The kids love it, I don't, which is irrelevant, and the girls made it, which is even better.
I tried a new crust recipe, and my dearly beloved informed me that this was the best pizza he'd had since leaving New Haven 40 years ago. I guess you might say he sorta liked it? For the record, I used pizza sauce from cans. I don't feel the need to take hours to make the sauce for something I think of as "fast food".
CRISPY PIZZA CRUST
1-1/2 cups water
3 tsp yeast
2 cups flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
2/3 tsp salt
2/3 tsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
Soften the yeast in the water, stir in the rest of the ingredients. For one batch, you can mix this in a bread machine. For the record, if you're tripling this recipe, be careful mixing it in a Kitchenaid mixer. Mine overheated, and shut itself down for half an hour. I was less than pleased. The triple batch made 2 large baking trays plus 4 small baking trays. There were leftovers.
But everyone else was pleased with the results. What more can one ask on a Saturday night? Tomorrow, I'll show you our dessert for Pi Day.
