Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

Pizza, But Not As We Know It


The other day I decided to whip up a batch of what I call Pizza Swirls. It's pizza, but not as we know it.

I had made a decent-sized batch of pizza dough (using 600g 'strong' pizza/bread flour). I had divided it into 6 balls and placed each ball in the freezer wrapped in a zip-lock bag. I removed a single bag from the freezer in the morning, and by the evening the dough had thawed and was rising ('it's alive!!!')

pizza but there's more:

I rolled it out, covered it with homemade tomato sauce, olives, and fresh basil leaves from my garden. Then I rolled it up, tightly.

roll it up man:

After the pizza was rolled up, it resembled a tight tube of dough.

pizza tube:

I sliced it, with a sharp knife, making sure to cut through completely.

get slicing:

I carefully lifted each little pizza swirl, and left them to rise on a pizza tray coved with baking paper.

swirls for baking:

When the swirls had doubled in size I baked them in a hot oven until golden and 'pizza-like'.

finished swirls:

The end result were soft, aromatic, melty and all you would expect from a pizza, only more bite-sized.
