This week I moved on to semolina or durum flour. I've heard of this one - they make pasta from it. While I did locate it in a store - hooray! - it comes in small package that holds about 3 cups. This was just enough to use for one batch of dough - I managed a pizza, a calzone and a loaf of bread.
I tried the recipe rustic Wild Mushroom and Potato Pizza Provencal. .... with sliced red potatoes & mushrooms with shredded parmesan.... not bad but I'm not sure it would be a family choice. The boys looked at me like I was insane :-) I added onions because we like them and the pizza seemed a little bland .... I think I could do this again with different veggies for myself and my husband.. the new potatoes were yummy... but on pizza? It's a bit of a stretch for us! But the flavor of the crust was unbelievable!
To reward the boys for trying the potato pizza, I also used the dough to make a calzone... stuffed with sauce, pepperoni and cheese.. Nice and traditional.... (and, she says smugly, demolished!)
..and then a sesame seed studded loaf just for fun.
This beautiful loaf is my husband's favorite so far :-)
I will need to hunt a little more to see if I can find semolina flour in a little larger quantity. We really liked it for pizza crust but need to find a more cost effective way to purchase it!
Have you checked this book out yet? I still can't believe I can turn out beautiful breads with MY schedule!
Try it from your library first..... if you decide to purchase it from Amazon.com, please click a link on one of my bread blog pages - usually the title of the book or the cover graphic. Thanks :-)
