- Using a spatula, or your hands, mix the dough really well until smooth. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes.

The flavors are often difficult to describe. Some say Truffles taste like they smell: nutty, oaky and earthy, with sweet and juicy notes similar to fresh Black Olives.

Dough Proofing Box
If you make a lot of dough through the year, you’ll find owning a pizza dough proofing box very useful.
Glass Measuring Jug
I hate taking chances with portions, so having a quality glass jug with clear to read measurements a vital kitchen tool for me.
OK, not really pizza related, but a good chef apron makes me feel the part when I am making my pizzas. I’d probably wear a chef hat if I got one too!
Rosemary has been used for cooking since at least 500 BC, if not before. An ancient legend says that the Virgin Mary placed her blue cloak over a white flowered rosemary bush while she was resting, and the flowers turned blue. The shrub was then named the “Rose of Mary”.
