' Favorite pizza dough

Recipe for making our favorite ever homemade pizza dough!

Happy Halloween-Friday everyone!!!

Is there anything better than a homemade pizza after trick-or-treating?! (well apart from admiring and tasting all the candy!!!!)

Today we want to share our favorite ever homemade pizza dough with you!


Homemade pizza dough

We will need:

1 pkg dry yeast (about 7g or 1 tsp)
400g flour
1/2tsp salt
250ml lukewarm water
1-2 Tbs olive oil
(plus some extra olive oil for brushing the edge)

Mix flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl. Add water and oil. Knead until your dough is all nice and smooth, about 10 minutes. If the dough is very sticky add some more flour.

Let rise in its bowl covered with a dry dish towel in a warm place for about half an hour, then roll out on a floured surface, spread some tomato sauce or ketchup or sour cream onto it and top with your favorite toppings!

Brush the edges with olive oil and bake at 220°C until the edges turn golden and crispy!

Enjoy!!!

' Chocolate!

Recipe for making chocolate candy!

Happy Friday everyone!!!

It´s trick or treat time of the year - we rather go for a treat today than a trick, shall we?!

Chocolate Candy

150g milk chocolate
150g dark chocolate
75g dried cranberries
50g burnt candied almonds (replace with any other nuts if you wish), roughly chopped
40g raisins
35g hazelnuts, roughly chopped

What you need to do is melting both chocolates together (use a water bath). While the chocolate is melting you can already spread all the other ingredients onto baking paper. Simply pour the melted chocolate over and let dry over night :) Break into pieces.

Yuuuuuum!!!

Have an amazing weekend!!!

' Bread chips

Recipe for making bread chips!

Hello everyone and happy Friday!!!

Fall time is comfort time...slow down, enjoy the beautiful autumn colors and make yummy food that is just made to nibble on during the day...so how about some super easy bread chips?


Bread chips

baguette bread
butter
salt, pepper
dried herbs

Cut the baguette into slices as thin as possible and arrange them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Melt the butter and season with salt and pepper. Stir in some dried herbs.

Brush the baguette slices with the butter and bake at 200°C for about 10 minutes.
You might want to stay close to your oven and watch them as they go very quickly from "perfect" to "burnt". 







Have a great fall weekend!!!
