Cooking Pizza with the Uuni

My husband and I have been working to get our back deck to be enjoyable. It has come a long way! From having stairs that went straight down into the dogs’ fenced in area to actually having a deck with a tin roof over it is quite exciting! I love thunderstorms as it is, and I cannot wait to sit out there when it rains. It is still a work in progress, but I am so happy with it so far! It will be great for spring and summer.

One thing we have gotten is this cool pizza oven called an Uuni (pronounced like oo-knee). It can cook a pizza in about 60-90 seconds. We will never buy frozen pizza (or maybe even order pizza) ever again!

We tried our hand at making our own pizza dough tonight, and it worked out very well. We had tried the store-bought kind, and I think it is a lot better when you make your own. A thin crust works best.

All we did was make a pizza dough, use our favorite pizza sauce and toppings, and throw it in here for a little over a minute, turning it about every 15 seconds or so. It is super easy!

Las Vegas – Chapter 3: Seven Magic Mountains and the Hoover Dam

Next in my Las Vegas adventure:

The Seven Magic Mountains, which is collection of colorful boulders stacked on one another  more than thirty feet high by Swiss artist, Ugo Rondinone, and the one and only Hoover Dam!  The Hoover Dam stretches from Nevada into Arizona, so I got to be in two places and time zones at once! Pretty cool, huh?

Las Vegas – Chapter 2: Valley of Fire

Okay, so this is technically not in Las Vegas, but it was a part of our Vegas trip.

This, for me, was one of the highlights. I come from green-treed North Carolina (although right now, the fall foliage is beautiful!), so to see dirt and red rock mountains was a beautiful change of scenery. If you are taking a trip out towards Las Vegas, make the time to stop here.

I promise you won’t be disappointed.
