Good evening ladies,

welcome to my new series – how to “at home date nights”. I have called this series to life because we are in another lookdown and also we weren´t able to go to a restaurant since November. It just sucks that you have no where to go and a lot of people I know are getting really sad.
I am one of them, missing the easiest things of life. Going out for dinner, or to a movie or to play billiard or meet with friends. None of it is possible and I think it won´t be possible for a great amount of time.
Anyways, today is episode one and I am sharing a very easy but oh so great thing to do together. Cooking together. I mean everyone must eat so why not share the task. We love to cook together. It is our time to talk and recap our day and / or plan things together.
So why not make pizza. Everybody loves pizza and making it from scratch was a lot easier than I though. I have a love / hate relationship with yeast so take this from me – it was super easy t make the dough.
For the recipe you need one block of yeast (if you only have dry yeast use two packages), a pinch of salt and sugar, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 500 gr. of flour.
Crumble the yeast into 250 ml of warm water, add the pinch of salt and sugar, stir it up and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
Put the flour and olive oil into a bowl, add the water – yeast mixture into it and kneed the dough until it is smooth. For about 5 to 10 minutes. Now put it back into the bowl and let it rise at a warm place for about an hour.
The dough is enough for two pizzas. Now you have time to chat and choose / prepare the ingredients you want to have on your pizza.
Put them in the oven for about15 minutes at 190 degrees. Pour yourself and your spouse a glass of wine while waiting.
It is a great way to spend time together and dressing up for your significant other wouldn´t hurt either. It is all about making an effort after spending your weeks in sweats.
