Pizza night
« on: January 16, 2021, 10:22:19 PM »
Homemade deep pan pizza. All pizza have fresh red jam tomatoes and mozzarella cheese as a base, except for the focaccia.

One on the left is Oliva e aglio (olives and garlic). One on the right is Regina (ham and mushrooms)



Siciliana made with anchovies and capers.



Focaccia made with coarse sea salt, garlic and rosemary. The blackened pan is pre world war 2 and was used in wood burning ovens before it came to RSA.


Give me an espresso and nobody gets hurt....

No, Glenwood, lower Glenwood.  No, no water off problem then...however, I keep a 20l bucket in the bath, constantly aware of it, make sure it has at least 10l in it, because of that one time a few years ago when water was off for 2 days, and it sometimes happens in the building, because the water is pumped to the tanks on the roof, whihch depends on electricity - so sometimes on the generator, and perhaps sometimes because plumbing work causes it to be shut off.
Nothing worse than getting up in the morning and finding there is no water - no coffee [which means I'm sort of disabled], and no normal morning ablutions.


*  Back to the topic of food just now, and Italian.  :)

@naughty. I am Italian.

To accompany the pizza we made a salad with lettuce, sliced cucumber,red and yellow cherry tomatoes and rocket leaves. Salad dressing was olive oil,red wine vinegar and salt.
 
Italian wine from the Tuscany region of course.

Desert was vanilla ice cream with a dash of amaretto liquor.

Followed by espresso using imported dark roast beans from Italy and made on a proper espresso machine.

@Katji. It's our turn for load shedding tonight.

:)  You can leave that signature line to me in your Will.
I don't speak in the morning until I've had the first coffee.
When I was in hospital for 12 days, the staff at the cafeteria called me Mr. Macchiato. The problem is that they wake you at 5:30 but the coffee only comes at 8:30. The shop opened before that.
I take sachets of Nescafe with me when I travel.
The addiction started when I stayed in London and 4 friends from Milan introduced me to espresso. So I got one of those classic stove-top espresso "machines" - I forget the name now, but you know what I mean.  The classic one. The delicatessen near my workplace ground the dark roast beans to suit.
And there was a coffee bar nearby, old-school, that gives a glass of water with the espresso.

Brings back memories ,my old man was from Sicily.
He was not a pizza fan but replace the pizza with pasta and all of the above is spot on right down to the salad dressing  :thumbs:
