The Cheesiest Pizza Ever
By Mary Lynn Bushong
1 "I'm bored," moaned Jean as she flopped into a kitchen chair and began kicking the table leg.
2 Mom stared at the offending foot for a moment before Jean got the message and stopped. Then she spoke.
3 "You can help me get started with supper if you want. I am going to try something new that I think you will like, a very cheesy pizza."
4 "That does sound good," Jean admitted, "but shouldn't we wait until it's closer to supper time?"
5 Mom shook her head. "Pizza crust is made from a kind of bread dough. It needs time to rise, so we have to start it a couple of hours before we want to eat. Why don't you wipe down the table while I assemble the ingredients?"
6 Mom opened the cabinet doors that hid the collection of mixing bowls and took out a large one. Then she chose two measuring cups. From the refrigerator she removed a bag of flour, a jar of grated parmesan cheese, and a jar of yeast. Then she also got out a container of sugar and put it all on the table.
7 "I think that's about everything except...oops! I forgot the oil," said Mom with a smile. "That dough would stick to everything without this. Now, let's start measuring."
8 Mom laid the handwritten recipe on the table for Jean to follow. She measured and poured four cups of flour into the metal mixing bowl. Then she added half a cup of sugar, a tablespoon of yeast, and a half cup of the grated parmesan cheese. Then she stirred all the dry ingredients together.
9 Mom put water in the kettle and started heating it.
