Black Truffle Pate, Mixed Mushrooms & Prosciutto Pizza from Our Weekend Pizza Party
My two girlfriends and I tried to make our own pizza last weekend. Actually they made the pizza, I was just busy trying to calm super cranky baby M down.. ^_^'
We (i.e. actually it was mostly Ieie, she did all the kneading!) made the dough following this recipe. The recipe is pretty easy to follow (easy for me to say as I was not the one who kneaded the dough heheheh) and we're pretty pleased with the result.
We made two kinds of pizza...the one which impressed me the most was the one with this black truffle pate.
The dough was simply rolled thinly, placed on a well oiled baking tray.
Spread quite a bit of the black truffle pate, add chunks of mixed mushrooms, season with salt and black pepper, topped generously with grated cheese (we used a mix of mozzarella, parmesan and cheddar), and bake for about 15-20 minutes in a 250C preheated oven.
Once it's out of the oven, we added more black truffle pate and placed a few pieces of prosciutto. Let them fold casually like cute little rosebuds.
Absolutely fragrant and delicious!
As for the other pizza...
We just slathered the dough with a bit of ketchup (oppps, but it's yummy, trust me), added some grated cheeses, salami and bacon, topped with more cheeses, added halved cherry tomatoes, and some baby asparagus. After baking, we added some fresh basil leaves from my tiny herb garden. Yummy!
Baby M was super cranky and clingy the whole time, I had to carry him around with me, even when I tried to take some pictures. Thanks to Ieie for documenting this crazy-bad-mama moment ^_^
We ended the meal with Ieie's homemade tiramisu topped with fresh berries and some bad Sunday TV (it's TVB Jade's latest variety show where we had to guess the girl among drag queens).
Good food, good company, bad TV.
What could be better than that?
I'll post more pictures from the night on my Facebook page.
