Those who have been following my blog for a longer period know that I love my Mulberry Bayswater.
I bought it pre-loved last October and I am still smitten with it. The lovely dark chocolate colored thick leather makes me happy every day. Mulberry bags are of beautiful quality and are hand made in factories in England, Turkey and China.
In the film below you can see how a Mulberry bag, in this case a Del Rey, is made.

I am sure you must have read about this pizza dough before on the internet. This weekend I decided I give it a try. My love went to work and had to cook for myself and as he doesn't like pizza this was good opportunity for me to try (and to eat pizza again).
I can tell you....it is dead easy to make.
And I can tell you...it is sooooo yummy.
|This what my dough looked like. Not a perfect pizza shape, but that doesn't influence the taste ;-)|
All you need for the dough s self raising flour and yoghurt. I found several recipe's, from one cup of each, a 2 to 1 ratio for flour yoghurt and 250 grams of flour and 150 grams of yoghurt.
What I did was I used 250 grams (about 1,5 cup) of flour and added yoghurt until I thought the dough was fine, that is enough for 1 pizza.
|The topping is a bit sparse, but I had to make do with what I had.|
The original recipe says self raising flour and greek yoghurt. I made my own self raising flour (with flour, baking powder and salt) and used fat free yoghurt.
|Not too shabby for a first try. It was very yummy!|
I added all the ingredients in a bowl and mixed them with a fork. Then I poured everything on the counter top and kneaded it with my hands.You have the knead it for at least 5 minutes to give those gluten time to do their job. This dough doesn't need to rise!
I baked the pizza in an oven on 220 degrees Celsius (450 degrees Fahrenheit) for about 12 minutes.
This was the first time I made a pizza and I can tell you, no more store bought pizza for me.
