I can bake, but if you ask me to cook, make sure you have back up.
It never turns out right.
Just doesn't. No matter what I do.
I feel sorry for my future Husband. (shh...this is between me and you.*bribes you with cupcakes*)
This is what I do.
Buy ingredients. Check.
Measure out ingredients according to recipe. Check.
Follow as instructed. Check.
Be disappointed with outcome. Check.
Blame recipe. Triple check.
Looks delicious, right?
Sorry, but pictures lie.
The recipe stated 30grams of salt for the pizza dough...and I stupidly followed. It was a trusted Masterchef recipe too. The pizza topping altogether is not bad. The base? Oh. My. God. It was like consuming one week's worth of salt intake in one slice of pizza.
At least I learned my lesson today.
Always follow your natural instincts. Trust it.
If it says, "This is not right". Then, it really is not right.
Oh well, there is always next time.
For now I'll just stick to baking, thanks.
- The best pizzas have no more than 3 - 4 toppings.
- Always mix yeast with lukewarm water and keep the dough in a warm environment.
- Always trust your first instinct and use common sense. Don't be like me.
- Be prepared to laugh at yourself when you make mistakes. Nobody is perfect. Even famous Chefs make mistakes too.
- Never give up.
