Lunch - Sour dough baguette with pesto, tomato and Mozzarella. Would be better with home grown tomatoes but they're a long way off. Still utterly delicious.
Dinner - Pizza - the most obvious use for Mozzarella
Bread-maker Pizza Dough Recipe - put on dough setting, makes 2 pizzas. While the breadmaker is going check the dough is forming a ball and add a smidge of flour or water until it looks right.
2 teaspoonsdried yeast
3 cupsbread flour
2 tablespoonsolive oil
1 1/4 cupswater
When dough is ready, heat oven 200C. Push out dough onto 2 oiled pizza trays (kids love doing this). Topping: add pesto, mushrooms and small amount of tasty cheese. Cook 10 mins then add mozzarella, finish cooking when crust is golden brown (another 10 mins approx). Add fresh pepper and chives. Served with home grown rocket and freckle lettuce. We also harvested our first spring broad beans, small and sweet, the kids are mad for them.
That was yesterdays dinner, then as we still had cheese left, and they were so loved, we made more pizzas tonight. The big one had a mozzarella and pesto sandwich for school lunch. Just one small block of mozzarella to go.
Look at these happy smiles. The mozzarella was fresh and milky in flavour, more creamy when cooked than supermarket mozzarella and it didn't really stretch. I loved it.
