I make my own pizza bases with all proper fresh ingredients, stretch 'em out to any shape, not round.  They're just the nicest pizza I've ever tasted.

We always have pizza on a saturday night and about 15 years ago I decided to try and make them myself.  That got me making bread dough, so a couple of years ago I started making my own bread.  i enjoy making it, it's such a lovely thing to do.  I tend to make simple bread and rolls.

I made bread at high school with Mrs Cuts, I'm a bit of a martial arts fan so I knocked hell out of it in the kneading process and I did well as it was an exam.
