Try, Try till you succeed

We need to eat our own words at times. Just in my last post I had mentioned the difficulty I faced because I had never baked in my life. The very next day I found myself making the best use of the Oven till date. How? I found a non stick iron pan that had come along with the microwave lying in the carton (huh...a free gift and I didn't even notice it, now I am really angry with myself). It was perfect for baking a Pizza. Since I did have a couple of recipes bookmarked...I was all ready.

This is how my Pizza came out.

Have a closer look...

I am not going to share the recipe right now...as I still need to perfect it. It had its own shortcomings and my oven is definitely going to make much more of Pizzas in the near future.

It was such a fantastic feeling eating my own baked bread. Although I should have used more flour then I did, should have left the flour to rise a lil more, should have used some more cheese on the Pizza.....and a lot more of these.

But I'm not complaining, neither was my husband. We enjoyed the Pizza to the last bite.
