- the fire roasted organic tomatoes from Earth Fare? Totally worth it. Those puppies went straight from can to blender to pizza. No metallic taste, no texture issues. There was too much sauce, however, even with Jeff liking extra sauce; the smaller can would be fine next time.
- Cheese was a mixture of colby and something called "antique", both from the farmer's market. The antique was a sharp white cheese that was softer than parmaeson but with the same sort of taste. Excellent.
- due to the afternoon's misadventures, the dough got a longer than usual rest after the bread machine. This resulted in a springy, thick, very tasty crust. I should remember this for next time.
- there is something psychologically more satisfying for me about eating round pizza than square. I have no idea why.
Maybe I shouldn't be an enabler, but our bread machine is relatively inexpensive, and we've been nothing but happy with it. :)
