Pizza night!

We pizza so decided to make some the other night.

Dough and all, of course!

Here they are before they went into the oven...

And here they are after!

This one had mozzarella, anchovies, pineapple,
roasted red pepper and caramelised red onion...

And this one had smoked ham, caramelised pear and gorgonzola.

Freshly-ground black pepper and a sprinkle of rocket, and they're good to go.

Very tasty, though I do say so myself...

Pistachio macarons with chocolate ganache

After those amazing macarons at Dan and Lucy's wedding and GBBO episode 4,
I decided to try to make my own...

These ones feature finely chopped pistachios and should really be green,
but I didn't have any green food colouring.

I sandwiched them together with chocolate ganache.

They didn't turn out perfectly, as they kind of look like mini burgers,
but weren't bad for a first effort and tasted good.

I'm particularly keen on icing and decoration as I love painstakingly laborious tasks, but the cakes taste great too.
