Pizza for Grandmother's 95th...

We made pizza for Grandmother's 95th birthday. We used the dough recipe from ye olde bible of quick and easy bread-making, and improvised with our own toppings. Martha discovered how to not slide the pizza off onto the pizza stone (the key is low angle and small shimmy-shakes, NOT high angle and giant shove, which makes a calzone-like pile of dough and toppings, and sends the olives flying). They came out great, everybody loved them.

White pizza with marinated artichokes, mushrooms, prosciutto and kalamata olives (on mine, Theresa's and Martha's, at least).

Red pizza with Italian sausage and mushrooms (on half).
