Facciamo la pizza!

Oggi è freddo e piove, naturalmente! Today it’s cold and it rains, naturally. Abbastanza il tempo. Enough about the weather!

Dopo la classe il gruppo del Sasso andiamo alla pizzeria di Linda per cucinare una pizza. After class a group of us from the school went to pizza making class at Linda’s pizzeria. I thought Linda looked just like Maria, the sous chef from the other night, and it ends up Linda is Maria’s sister! E il piccolo mundo. It’s a small world.

We made the dough and kneaded it (scacciare is the verb). The dough balls we made have to sit for over twenty-four hours, so we then used other dough balls to make our pizzas. I went a bit overboard on mine, including carciofi (artichokes), pancetta (bacon), and anchovies (acciughe). We also made tiramisu and a crostata con marmalade di le prugne (prunes). But by then I couldn’t eat anymore. I asked Linda, “Come si dice non posso mangiare più?” She said, “Ecco.” In other words, I’d said it: I can’t eat anymore!

    That pizza looks scrumptious – but I really want that recipe for the jam and prune tart, delizioso! Add them to the menu with the rabbit and handmade gnocchi 😉

    Sara—la pizza e squisita! E, il forno—magnifico! Mi piacerrebe molto un forno a legna! Che divertente per la classe! I cannot believe that your weather there is still so wintery! However, take heart—at least it’s not as bad the 4th Nor’Easter that hit the East Coast today! Still, isn’t Italy supposed to be sunny and warm all the time??? 🙂
