Paleo Pete, Author Pizza
Yeah Pete, tell that to our 2 metre long supermarket docket.
Jon was making the mother of all pizzas.
He started at about 5pm - not counting visiting three shops to source ingredients (mussels were hard to find), and he was finally serving the pizza at around 9pm after a 4 hour mise-en-plus that left romesco sauce on the ceiling and many of the kitchen walls following an incident with the lid of the blender. The kitchen looked like it does in the middle of christmas dinner preparations, and the fridge was full to overflowing with the rest of the ingredients.
I'm not sure Pete understands the concept of a quick pizza - the leeks needed 20 minutes of frying, the mussels had to be prepared separately, and at the last minute Jon realised that the capsicums needed to be roasted for 40 minutes before using. It was a gruelling evening. But it did finally end, the results looked impressive, and according to everyone else, quite delicious.
