Who needs a long-sleeved shirt when it's hot? Certainly not me. So I shortened the sleeves and used the extra sleeve fabric to add a panel at the bottom of the shirt.
I didn't even mean to make the before picture look bad and the after picture look cute, but it seems the before version really did look bad and I had no idea until I compared the two photos. The newer version looks much better on me! Not to toot my own horn or anything...
And we made pizza. Soooooo good. I used a super easy and fast pizza dough recipe (see below) and I am in love. Looks like I'll be making pizza much more often.
(The recipe is from allrecipes.com, but for some reason the site won't let me copy the url. Strange. I doubled the recipe and used regular flour with a few tablespoons of wheat gluten.)
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker's peel dusted with cornmeal. Spread with desired toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving.
