Daring Bakers Pizza Party


This month's Daring Baker's challenge is not only about what you make, it's how you make it.  Pizza was the theme, but the real challenge here was that all of us were required to throw the dough in the air, just like a real pizza guy.  And, we had to take a picture.  


I cheated a little on this challenge.  I've made pizza before, and have a dough recipe I really like. For me the real challenge was stretching the dough by throwing it.  My friend J, who is a bread master, made the pizza dough, and invited us over for a pizza making party.

To top the pies, we had sausage with mushrooms and caramelized red onions and smoked mozzerella with sundried tomatoes and marinated artichokes. Both were good, but the sausage pizza was hands down my favorite. 


I'm not going to include recipes this month, since I didn't use the same one the other DBs did.  Check out the blogroll for other attempts at pizza spinning

Great job tossing the dough Lauren! Your pizzas look great! It's supposed to be a surprise but Stephanie gave me the okay to blow my cover, I'm your Blogging By Mail buddy, and I had delivery confirmation on your package and tracked it but it said it couldn't be delivered Monday and it is waiting to be picked up? Don't know why they wouldn't just leave it at your house...anyway usps said if it wasn't picked up it would go back return to sender and I didn't want that to happen! I hope you are able to get it and enjoy the goodies I picked for you :)
