Any idea what this monstrosity is?
This one should be easier:
That’s right. They’re both pizza bases.
I know what you’re thinking. “How on earth did she manage to make such horrible looking pizza bases?”
Thanks for asking. If there was a special number of pizza disasters allotted to each person on the planet, I’ve totally used mine up now. Here are some things I’ve learned:
1) Always follow a recipe.
2) If you disregard tip #1 and make up a bread-like pizza dough thingy – ensure that it isn’t really liquidy. The wetter/thinner the mixture is the more it will stick to your baking paper. (See above pictures.)
3) I will cry if I can’t get pizza. Like my brother said, pizza is a basic human right. After considering that truth, the siblings gave me permission to go to the supermarket and spend their inheritance on some Venerdi pizza bases.
4) Shop bought pizza bases are really, really expensive. (See comment about inheritance.)
But you know what? They’re really tasty too.
They’re also what I like to call a “life-saver” – mainly because things could have become really ugly if I didn’t get pizza that evening.
But, yes, they’re expensive. I’m talking $7.50 for two bases. Don’t tell Mum.
Because pizza is a human right, at least in my house, on a scale of alright-to-awful, how terrible is it that bases are so expensive?! I feel like gluten-free companies are ripping us off.
But on the other hand I’m also really glad that I have access to pizza bases at my local supermarket. While I’m being thankful: I’m also glad that I have a bed to sleep on, running water and a sewage system that works. Yay. But the pizza is still expensive.
What are your views on pizza? Are you a closet ninja turtle like me (I bags being Raphael) or can you take it or leave it?
