Pizza and Bread

Another baking post. 

I'm trying to get back again to baking all the bread we eat.   
Earlier this week I kneaded up another batch of dough, started with a biga.  
  I baked four baguettes and then the remaining dough went into the fridge for two days.

I took the dough out of the fridge Thursday afternoon and left it on the counter so it could  come to room temperature.

I made a pizza

for dinner
topped with my sauce,  pepperoni and mushrooms.

 And I had enough dough left for a large loaf of bread.

My Pizza Sauce

A basic outline.  Season to suit your own taste.

1 28 oz can quality Italian Tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic
fennel seed
2 to 3 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper

Puree tomatoes with the minced garlic. Grind the fennel seeds. Add the seeds and the oregano, basil, and the olive oil and mix together. NOTE: I use a stick blender and blend all of these ingredients right in the can.


  1. Dough has risen quite well. Do you have a recipe for your dough?

  2. Lisa, just click on the above link - Baguette Recipe. This is my favourite bread dough. Even better when it is given a few extra days in the fridge.


  3. Thank you for the link! I will be trying your dough recipe! I hope it will rise.
