I don't understand. Does this mean we are going to have to do lots of work?

I have a saying for you:

This is for a person in our class:


Dough Ingredients:
1 1/2 tsp dried yeast
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for oiling
250 ml warm water
375 g strong plain flour, plus extra for sprinkling
Salt and pepper

1. Mix the yeast with 3 tbsp water. Set aside for ten mins or until frothy.

2. Sift the flour into a bowl and add the sugar, salt and pepper. Then dig a well in the centre.

3. Pour the yeast, water, and oil into the well. Use your hands to mix everything together.

4. Sprinkle flour over clean work surface. Then knead the dough for 8 mins, until smooth and elastic.

5. Oil a large bowl, pop in the dough, and cover with clingfilm. Leave in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size.

6. Is it ready? Poke holes in the dough. If the holes remain, it's ready. Punch down with your fists and place on a floured surface.

2 in 1 pizzas.
Your pizza dough
Spring onions
1 cooked chicken breast, diced
Pizza sauce or passata
Diced ham
Sweet peppers
Sliced pitted olives
Cherry tomatoes
Grated cheese

1. Knead the dough again.
Then cut 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece into an 18cm/7 in circle and place on a baking sheet.

2. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C. Spread
pizza sauce or passata on each pizza base.

3. Make faces on your pizzas using your favourite toppings. Try tomato noses, olive eyes,
sweet pepper hair, or any other combination.

4. Spoon chicken, sliced spring onions and sweet peppers onto your pizzas for an alternative treat.

5. Sprinkle cheese all over your pizzas. Then cook them in the the oven for 12 mins or until golden and bubbling.

This took forever because I had to write all of it out while reading the book so be grateful.

Um... thanks, but that book is out under my name Kerli!!! (I think. Or was it the asian cooking book? Sorry, Kerli's in a phaze. Next week is art.)
Haha. I found that meant we have a lot of work, because you said we would Mr W.

Cute cartoon Lord Plunket!!

That's quite an interesting quote mech boy. I suppose you do have to do what you think you can't, because otherwise you'll live the rest of your life thinking you can't do things when really you can!
