But first up, Mom's Friday night cocktail.
In a medium bowl - stir
350 grams of wheat kernels ground into flour or 300 gr whole wheat flour (I use a Vitamix to grind my grains)
1/2 cup wheat gluten
1 tablespoon yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon each honey and olive oil
1 1/4 cup water
When stirred, dump on counter and knead for a few minutes. Place into an oiled bowl and cover for 30 minutes.
Start preheating oven with a pizza stone near the bottom to 550F. This may take an hour.
When the oven is nearly hot, start rolling dough into circles on the parchment paper. The dough won't need any extra flour and is very easy to work at this point.
When the circles are complete, pour and spread a bit of olive oil on the surface. Cover with a bit of tomato sauce, seasoning, cheese and a bit of whatever else you want on the pizza. But not too much.

|Putting the pizza in a screaming hot oven!|
Let the oven reheat for 15 minutes before baking the second pizza.
For desert, we had Pumpkin Crunch Cake by One Ordinary Day. It was quick and good but nobody clamoured for me so I won't be making this again.
