Let's make a Pizza Party!

there is nothing like cooking for your friends. and what is even more fun, is experimenting on them :) so i tried to make pizza for the first time, and i guess more and more pizza party will come at our flat.
pizza toppings were:
- margherita (tomato sauce, basil, olive oil and mozzarella)
- pesto sauce, mozzarella and cherry tomatoes
- gorgonzola cheese and apples (be careful to spread the apples first, then gorgonzola and mozzarella)

and the basic recipe - babyblue's 1.0 version - is:

Pizza Dough
(makes 4 pizzas)
melt 7gr of dried yeast and two little tablespoons of sugar in 350ml of water. let it rest for 10 minutes. knead 600gr of all purpose flour with the yeast and add 13gr of salt. be careful not to put the salt in direct contact with the yeast in water, so do this operation only after the water is absorbed by the flour. add 13gr of olive oil and knead, knead, knead and have fun for around 15 minutes. let the dough grow for two hours. make 4 balls with the dough and strech them to form 4 round pizzas. add your favorite topping and bake in the oven at 230degrees for 15 minutes.

this pizza was a success and i will keep on using this recipe. on the other hand, my mind is open to experiment new versions such as potato pizza, super crispy pizza or extra soft pizza-hut-style pizza. but don't worry, i'll let you know about all of them.
