Something for the Weekend: Pizza and Pretty Chocolate Cake

Last Weekend we had a bit of an indulgent one...a trip to the ice cream farm on saturday followed by homemade pizza and chocolate cake on sunday. There was (and still is) a pizzeria at the top of my old road called Francesca's and they sold the best parma ham and rocket pizza ever; it was the height of indulgence to two 20 year olds, washed down with a san pelligrino, garlic bread and tub of feta and olives.

For some reason this pizza was all I could think about all week...come sunday it had to be made so A and I set about doing just that. However, as usual, the camera got shoved out the way as we got inolved so they aren't really many pictures of the process...

We followed this Jamie Oliver recipe and topped it with his tomato sauce and mozzerella and once it was cooked (8-10 mins at 200 C) added parma ham, rocket, lemon juice and salt and pepper. A bit of parmessan would of finished it off but we had none in the fridge-it was amazing without it though!

For dessert I desperately wanted to bake as I don't think I have in months so we chose this cake and mixed up our decoration a bit. I used the wrong size tin though so mananged to make the outside slightly crispy whilst waiting for the inside to cook; it was still a lovely chocolate cake though and it would be nice for a celebration right? Minus our slapdash decor! Have a great weekend guys.
