One of our fellow “Granny Plan” followers was asked by her family to make pizza as her first dish. Now pizza isn’t super-duper hard to make, but there is the issue of the crust. If you’re making the crust yourself it can take a little practice to get it down just right. Plus, it takes a bit more planning to have the dough soaked or fermented and ready for dinner. So while task-wise it isn’t the easiest first dish, taste-wise pizza is so popular it is sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike. So what to do?
