How to make the best pizza ever:

1. Open ready-made pizza dough mix.
2. Add too much water.
3. Cry for your boyfriend to come clean off your fingers because the dough is too sticky (oops).
4. Let dough rise 15 mins.
5. Throw a chicken breast in the toaster oven and sausages on the grill to cook.
6. Chop up garlic, onion, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes.
7. Preheat oven to 375C.
8. Grate cheese. Lots of cheese.
9. Assure hungry boyfriend that he will, in fact, receive a meal today.
10. Assemble a random medley of spices (oregano, basil, pepper, etc.).
11. Add lots of flour to dough and attempt to mold into a circle on a cookie sheet. After several frustrating attempts, announce that you are either going back to preschool to learn how to make a circle, or going to Italy to learn how to make real pizza.
12. Transfer dough to clean, greased cookie sheet. Shape into a pathetic, doughy circle.
13. Give pathetic doughy circle a facelift by slathering with pizza sauce. Looks better already!
14. Cover glossy new pizza dough with chopped sausage, chopped chicken, broccoli, tomatoes, onion, garlic, spices, and cheese. Announce that you may be the best pizza chef EVER. Buddy's father-in-law included.
15. Put in preheated oven. Wait 18 minutes.
16. Drool while looking through the oven door.
17. Check pizza. Put back in for 2 minutes.
18. Check pizza again. Put back in for 5 minutes.
19. Take pizza out of oven, finally.
20. Forget to take picture of brilliant pizza.
21. Cut pizza.
22. Let pizza cool so you don't send your boyfriend home with a burnt mouth, again.
23. ENJOY!!

Also, I ran. Pre-pizza.
