The Yum Files

Over the Labour Day weekend, A and I decided to try our hands at pizzas made on the charcoal barbecue. We'd seen an episode of America's Test Kichen where they show you how to make them, and have the cookbook from the series out from the library, so we felt adequately prepared.

If you're interested in trying this, check out the recipe online. (Log in with cyberpunk@cyberpunk.com if you don't want to sign up)

Our dough came out a little wet and soft, but the pizzas still worked well and tasted amazing. We also experimented with fresh roma tomatoes versus canned plum tomatoes. The fresh tomatoes are definitely the way to go!

The grill gives the bases a nice smoky flavour, and they came out incredibly crispy and light... I'm tempted to make all our home-made pizzas this way from now on! :)
