Daring Bakers: Whoops! I'm LATE!

I am such a bad girl!  This was supposed to have been posted on Wednesday and life caught up with me...eek!

October's hostess was Rosa's Yummy Yums.  She was originally slated to hostess with a couple of other ladies - one of them was Sher, who sadly passed away in July from a massive MI.  As a tribute to Sher, Rosa elected to continue with the idea Sher had about the challenge for October.  Pizza dough!  We've recently ventured into the world of homemade pizza dough (sourdough and in the bread machine) but Rosa was having none of that. ;)  We had to actually toss the dough this time!  We were unable to get pictures and I have a lot of practicing to do!!

RECIPE SOURCE:  “The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering The Art of Extraordinary Bread” by Peter Reinhart. Ten Speed Press, Berkeley, CA.  Copyright 2001.  ISBN-10: 1-58008-268-8, ISBN-13: 978-158008-268-6.  You can see the recipe here, on Rosa's blog.  

We used homemade pizza sauce (recipe here), ground beef, cheese and caramelized onions (mmmm!).  I had a lot of help in making the pizza, as usual.  Brad caramelized the onions because he loves to do that and because he can't stand to be left out of any part of preparing dinner.  Katherine helped put the meat and cheese on the pizzas.  I told Brad that the next time we make pizza using caramelized onions we're leaving off the sauce because it totally overpowered the onions.  By the way, if you've never had caramelized onions on a pizza...oh my gracious...what are you waiting on?!  Yummy!

For more pizza ideas and quite possibly photos of folks tossing their pizza dough - check out other Daring Bakers!


  1. Yum!! It looks great! What a good hubby you have!

    We didn't get any tossing pics here either but we're going to have to try again soon. I'll have to go peek for a new challenge posted next. - Can't wait!

  2. Carmelized onions!! What a fun dinner :)
