Friday Night Pizza Frenzy

Friday nights have become our “bad food” nights but with the nearest takeaway a 30 minute round trip we’ve adapted to making our own (not a bad thing really). One of the few things we really miss about Auckland is our beloved Dante’s Pizza. While my humble efforts don’t measure up to Kev and Tanya’s mastery of pizza making, it’s still the best pizza I’ve tasted since we’ve been here.

Margherita: just tomato suace, mozzarella and fresh basil – fantastico!

Chilli Chicken: tomato sauce, parmesan, smoked chicken and cayenne pepper.

It all starts with the dough – just flour water and yeast. Mix, rest, knead, rest, hand flatten and add toppings.

    From where we sit, we’re glad you’ve moved down the line as that’s some serious looking pizza. Looks like you’ve found your new vocation. Will you name a pizza after us when you open your pizzeria up?

    Kev & Tan.

    Thanks guys – there will definitely be an homage to Dante’s on my menu. I might need to pop back to Auckland for some serious training before I try to go it alone though.
