When the lovely people at John Lewis Oxford Street invited Moozles and me for a day of pizza-making and pizza-eating, we were thrilled. We love eating pizza. And regular readers of my blog will know that I love John Lewis.
John Lewis wanted to celebrate their new Italian restaurant - Rossopomodoro. And they very kindly showed my daughter, along with some other blogger kids, how to make pizza dough. As the dough needs at least a couple of hours to rise, we got boxes in which to take home our dough. And the very talented pizza chef made us yummy pizzas.
The kids had a great time, and we all got to eat some delicious pizza. We were also able to order other items for lunch, so I had to try the courgettes (what Italians and Americans call zucchini - my favourite vegetable). Moozles also enjoyed chomping on bits of basil as there were pots on the tables. I would definitely eat here again. Not only was the food delicious and the decor modern and light, but the prices were comparable to Pizza Express.
We brought home our dough, which had had about five hours to rise. Husband made some tomato sauce while Moozles stretched and rolled out the dough. She loved this. And her little brother wanted a go, so we gave Dubz some of her dough to make a teeny tiny pizza. After adding some mozzarella and fresh basil, the margherita pizzas were ready. Sadly we don't have a cool pizza oven, but the pizzas turned out really well and they were almost as delicious as the ones from Rossopomodoro.
We have decided to start making fresh pizza once a week. We already have a pizza cutter (which is so useful we use to cut/slice loads of things). But I would like to also get this pizza stone. Not only are they supposed to help the pizza cook evenly, but this one can be used to display the pizza on the table. John Lewis have some other great tableware to choose from.
