THIN CRUST PIZZA

Pizza, who doesn’t love them? I do, a lot!! I really really like the thin crust italian style rather than the thick american pizza hut style, which I thought is an abomination to the original. But I’m not a snob, in the end, it’s pizza for God’s sake! Trough thick and thin, I will always love you dear pizza!

So when I decided to make some myself, the search for thr perfect crust recipe begin. Bleh.. who am I to talk? I just took the 1st pretty looking recipe on the 1st page of google search result, which is this one from thekitchn.com

The result? Perfect thin crust that I can eat by itself,  I’m tempted to bake one without even thinking about the topping. Perfect recipe!

Isn’t she cute? This little darling is Keisha, my best friend’s daughter who turned one on March 2nd, 2013. Me and her mother roamed college with all the ups and down, but we managed to stay friends till this day. For her daughter’s birthday, she asked me if I could make the cake, of course I said yes. But then the ideas just blossomed into a whole theme of a party, which is Minnie Mouse, with not just a birthday cake, but also cupcakes, cake in jars, and sugar cookies.

She gave me a link to this free Minnie Mouse party printables from catchmyparty.com to edit and print, so I edited Keisha’s face into it and made cupcake toppers, banners, stickers, etc.
