Easter Eve Surprise

pizza 5

My husband gave me an Easter Eve surprise. He made his first ever homemade pizza from scratch. We went shopping together after lunch today. I knew he bought pizza ingredients – bread flour, yeast, tomato sauce, pepperoni, cheese, and canned pineapple.

I asked if he had a recipe. He said he did, but didn’t know when he would make pizza.

This evening, he decided to make it, all by himself without any help from me. I loved it – I didn’t have to do anything. My only help was to take out the rolling pin for him.

He made the dough, used the rolling pin to flatten the dough to the thinnest. He made 3/4 pepperoni and cheese for himself. I only wanted 1/4 with kale and pineapple.

He did the baking and slicing and served it to me. What a treat! What a nice surprise!

  1. Wow! What a wonderful surprise! I might just “happen” to read your post to my husband…or maybe just show him the pictures! You know…maybe give him a little hint and some inspiration!!!! The kale and pineapple sounds delicious…I have never had that combination on a pizza!

  2. Happy Easter! Isn’t it a treat when we don’t have to think about what to do for the evening meal – and what an added blessing to then have it cooked for you! It looks like your husband did a fantastic job, and how brave to attempt something he’s never done before. It looks truly scrumptious 😋x

  4. That looks amazing, I’m tempted to try making my own pizza now too (though I have a feeling it wouldn’t look anywhere near that good).

    Happy Easter Miriam and to your family, have a lovely weekend 🙂
