Apparently Easter is right around the corner, and apparently I am hosting.
And apparently I knew all about this and so the fact that I am going to have to cram spring cleaning into such a short window (I refuse to clean during the weekdays, there isn’t enough time to waste after work) means i am probably going to at some point end up in the closet with a bottle of wine, hiding (well, hiding and drinking).
My solution to problems: ignore ignore ignore and then pray the problem magically fixes itself.
And then have to face the cruel reality called life and give myself extreme heart palpitations followed by some sort of rage that would most likely send someone to anger management and do the damn thing I have been putting off.
this actually makes me want to fake sick and ruin the holiday for everyone. sorry kids, but I am a type four on the enneagram so being selfish and dramatic is just part of who I am. I hope you can understand, k thanks bye.
Anyways I will probably make this recipe on Sunday because its SUPER easy, and because I can throw a few fried eggs on top and call it brunchy AF (for the old folks who don’t understand that, it means As Farts).
Vegetable, Protein and Carbs. The perfect life balance. (And throw a fried egg on top and you just won the lottery).
Any who I was generously sent, The Nordic Baking Book by Magnus Nilsson and holy crow I am obsessed! I kid you not it is so good. But also after watching him on season 1 of Chefs Table I immediately purchased Faviken . And was blown away. So when Phaidon Press sent me a few more of his works, including The Nordic Baking Book, I actually cried tears of joy. (I linked both of the books via amazon below, only because I buy everything off amazon, but feel free to support your local bookstore first!)
So this is just ONE of the many recipes I’ll be highlighting over the next few weeks (no this is not paid) I want to spread the love.
Nordic Pizza Dough. Out of all things Julia, you’re Italian and you chose Nordic pizza dough? Why yes. And Magnus (we are clearly on a first name basis now) gives a wonderful background on the Nordic dough and it would also sell you on trying it.
First I can tell you this, it only needs one rise time of 30 minutes. Yep. So you can make this as a last minute meal. And it is SO simple and the texture is really quite wonderful. And you can throw anything you damn well please on top. So here’s the recipe for the dough, and some of my favorite spring toppings, enjoy!
