Amo la Pizza

Today was a “free day” for the art class and all but me left early to spend the day in Lucca. I stayed back and painted in the studio. It was very quiet and I enjoyed just getting in some real painting time. I still have nothing to show here – I wasn’t thrilled with the day’s work, so tomorrow I will tackle it again. It’s always a bit slow getting back in the groove.

ImageMeanwhile, it was pizza day here. Chris spent part of the morning getting the wood and oven ready. Later in the day he fired it up and brought it to a roaring blaze. It’s a lot of work for pizza, but a wonderful thing! And there’s just no other way to get that taste,

Mari arrived later in the day as well and began the dough. ImageShe is an excellent cook and her dough proofed to perfection. I love making pizza dough myself and I know a great dough when I see one! 

A whole pizza was rolled out for each of us even though Kryshia explained we wouldn’t be able to eat the whole thing. They just wanted us to be able to load our own pizza with toppings and watch it cook in the wood oven. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process since pizza making is one of my hobbies. I wish I had thought to watch Mari make the dough since I’m always trying recipe variations myself.

My pizza was delicious – or as one of my new friends would say… “divine.” I know, I know – you will say I’ve never a met a pizza I didn’t like (and that is pretty much true) but it really was divine!

So the week here is flying by and tomorrow it is back to painting. We are having a “studio day” to work on the things we’ve already started. I’m anxious to go scrape down some of the mess I made today and get a painting finished. If it turns out, I’ll post it here for you tomorrow.

Ciao!
