Pizza Making: #NewarkBloggerMeet

Last Friday I attended my first blogger meet in Newark (in the midlands) hosted by the lovely Frankie from Crazyblondegal. We did something a little different and went pizza making. As it was only my first meet up I was quite nervous but everyone was so lovely and the day just flew by.

We received a glass of Prosecco with our Pizza. How classy.
Dough balls were first on the menu. I love them but these tasted even better as they'd just been taken out the oven and so were really soft and warm. 
Making pizzas is harder than I thought. Mine turned out more oval than round. 
We all got pretty stuck into the toppings. 
Calzone Challenge
We were then split into two groups and had to create a 'calzone', picking one person to make it. Ok, my team lost (crying) but it was still so much fun. The professional chef made it look so easy but it wasn't.
Our Calzone. It's basically a pizza base folded in half filled with cheese and tomato. 
The other teams Calzone. They look like pasties. 
 My cooked pizza was actually really yummy. 

It was such a great day with some great people. It was something different and thanks again to Frankie for organising it. She also gave us a wonderful 'goodie' bag so look out for a post on that. Let me know if you've been to any meetups recently or have got any coming up. 
Happy Shopping x
