Our first outing for 2013 is Pizza with Onion Confit, a yummy way to start the new year. While I have had mixed results with the sweet recipes from Baking with Julia, I have always enjoyed the breads and my efforts have usually been rewarded with success.
I will let this week's host, Paul describe the process in more detail. He will also post the recipe if you want to try it. I will just say that the recipe uses common ingredients. Even though it is time consuming, each step is very easy. I did have some problem with the stickiness of the dough. I added about an extra 1/4 cup of flour, but I didn't want to add too much. In the end, I made one pizza. I then made four smaller calzones filled with tomato paste, cheese, olives and onion confit. I found folding over the dough made it easier to place on the pizza stone. It's probably time to invest in a pizza peel.
