Entertaining the fun and easy way!

Entertaining friends can be a challenge when you have young children so here’s my recipe for a special night without too much preparation and stress:

Ingredients: 
Ooni 3 Portable Wood Pellet Pizza Oven
◦ Wood
◦ Kindling
◦ Matches
◦ Home made pizza dough (see Delicious recipe below)
◦ Tomato paste and or tomato chutney, pesto or whatever sauce you fancy 
◦ Toppings such as ham, salami, chicken, prawns, lamb, capsicum, mushroom, zucchini, anchovies, red onion, tomato, basil
◦ Mozzarella cheese

A pizza oven can be a big investment but I found ours has paid for itself with 
◦ how easy it makes entertaining and 
◦ the number of easy outdoor dinners we’ve had as a family.

Many of the toppings can be used for entrees too such as the olives and salami with a side serve of crackers and grapes.

My top pizza topping is anchovy topped with zucchini and red onion and chilli flakes.

I like to do a special desert to make up for the unfancy dinner, such as a chocolate biscuit pudding or tarte tartin or any other show stopper really.

Pizza dough recipe here:

Basic pizza dough 
◦ 1 tbsp dry yeast 
◦ 1 tsp caster sugar
◦ 1 cup (250ml) lukewarm water
◦ 2.5 cups (375ml) 000 flour or pizza/bread flour
◦ 1 tsp salt
◦ 1 tbsp olive oil

Combine yeast, sugar and water in bowl, mix and leave in a warm spot for 5 minutes or until bubbles appear (this means yeast has activated).

While that’s happening, combine flour, salt and olive oil in a large bowl and make a well in the centre.

Add the yeast mixture and mix with well-floured hands for 4 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.

Divide the dough into equal sized balls and place on a tray and cover with a damp clean tea towel. Keep in a warm place until the balls have at least doubled in size ( takes about 30 minutes).

Roll out to the desired size.
