    Pizza for one?

    My wife informed me that she had to go out for a works outing meal tonight.
    Home alone, what to cook?
    I usually do most of the cooking around here as her job as a childcare worker keeps her late.

    Pizza for one?
    So, light the fire, get the dough ready.

    Itll give me a chance to try out new techniques, recipes, oven management etc without the pressure of an expectant crowd..

    Perfect time to test which wine goes best with which pie!

        Some observations.

        It takes just as long to prepare for one as for many.

        I now hate wooden peels.
        I can make great pizza/focaccia dough.

        All wines go with all pizzas.

          You are really addicted. But it's a healthy addiction. Do you have some bread dough to pop in a loaf or two after you've eaten? It's such a pity to waste the heat.

            I often do a trio of pizzas. make enough for 3 (although there are only max 2 of us here). I usually have enough to take to work the following day - get the colleaguse envious etc! One pizza might not be worth the effort!!

              I often do pizza for one, in fact I'm doing one tonight. This is where a smallish oven shines. It also gives me more time to enjoy the fire and wine. But usually it's the retained heat a day or two later I'm mostly interested in as I always keep roasts and ribs in the freezer.

                  I just cook it in the kitchen oven for 1 or two.

                    You make a good point. I'm still debating about the size of our dome....Feeling like a compromise between small and large, maybe 38 inches. I'm interested in a taller opening for a large turkey or large ferral hog part. Thanks for making the point here.

                      When I visited Italy the gentleman in the adjoining house lit his pizza oven every day and baked a loaf of bread. He just burned some sticks and brush, so I am sure it did not fully heat (but then it probably never fully cooled down either). His was a newer refractory oven, thinner than the pompeii...
