First Dinner

For the first home-cooked meal in my new kitchen, I decided to go wild and try my hand at homemade pizza. Inspired by my cousin's recent description and armed with Smitten Kitchen's recipe, I made a goat cheese, zucchini, squash, and shallot pizza, paired with a simple salad.

The pizza dough was surprisingly easy to make. I couldn't believe it when it actually rose! I'm not sure it turned out perfectly - the crust was kind of tough, and overall it seemed pretty salty (we were quite thirsty at the end of the meal), but that's okay. With the delicious and fresh toppings, it still tasted great!

Even though the oven set off the smoke alarm and we drank an entire Brita of water, the meal was tasty and - most importantly - it was a lot of fun! I think I'm going to get used to my new kitchen pretty quickly...

Oh, and Wright decided to top his pizza with some prosciutto. Boys don't eat vegetarian meals, apparently!

Update: This weekend, we're having dinner at Adelaide's and doing a make your own pizza bar! Maybe I'll be able to pick up some pointers for the crust situation...


  1. Everything is better with prosciutto

  2. Your pizzas looks awesome. Great combos! You apartments looking great by the way.
