Rocket & Prosciutto, Prawns and Spinach & Feta Pizza

Saturday morning. We just had breakfast but I was already thinking about dinner. As it was weekend and we had plenty of time, I wanted to make something delicious. So I looked through my ‘To cook’ list for inspriation and after a while we chose a promising looking Roti Chicken Curry.

In the afternoon we strolled through the city and ended up in a bookstore. 3 minutes later I was sitting in front of plenty of cookbooks. It’s always the same…

And suddenly I knew: I don’t want Roti Chicken Curry, I want Pizza. A moment later Stefan joined me with photography and computer books and, without me saying a single word, asked for Pizza tonight. That is my man…

So we made Pizza. Three different kinds. They were so delicious.

Pizza dough.

  4. After 3 minutes add olive oil.
