When I decided to do this pizza recipe, I didn’t expect much. I knew that my ability in baking is limited, and this recipe was my first experience in the pizza world. However, the result turned to be more than a success!
I still remember the day I bought my break maker. I didn’t plan to buy one in the beginning. And I always believed that baking is a specialty that I will never master.
I saw the machine is sold for a very reasonable price. However, when I decided to give it a try the sales man told me ” do you think that you can make a loaf using this machine?”, “we never succeeded to bake anything using this machine” he continued. ”I believe it requires a professional skill!” he commented.
Thanks for the salesman comments; I bought the bread maker and enjoyed baking many successful breads, pizza dough and cakes!
