In planning for Felicity's upcoming party we were looking through some pizza books and Sydney take away menus and quickly came to the conclusion that we had slumped to a mediocrity in pizza creation. Whilst we were above the American staple of pepperoni we were below Australian standards. Call it cultural backsliding.

So on Sunday we tried out two new pizza recipes: roast pork with apple sauce and upside down baked lemon cheesecake [both from the cookbook Theo & Co - thanks Adam]

Both were magnificent. The pork one started with a base of homemade apple sauce with a hint of cream. Then sliced wood-fired roast pork and shredded mozzarella cheese. Followed by sliced garlic roast potatoes and drizzled with white sauce. The dessert one speaks for itself as it was exactly as named - a baked lemon cheesecake topped with strawberries and drizzled with strawberry coulis.

Everyone gobbled down these creations. Happy full bellies led to happy naps. After 4 slices of pork pizza Lucy managed to eat 4 pieces of lemon cheesecake pizza! We enjoyed these pizzas for lunch on Monday and they were just as good reheated in the regular oven the next day.

I can see more experimenting to come!
