Another mystery pizza today.  This mystery pizza would be good to serve on Thanksgiving for a dessert. It has both traditional pumpkin and cranberries. 

I first took some frozen cranberries out of my freezer that I had saved since last Christmas.  They were still good.  I made a simple syrup of water and sugar, then added the cranberries and cooked for 10 minutes.  I squeezed a lemon, and also used some zest from the lemon in the mix with the cranberries.  When the cranberries were almost finished cooking, I added black grapes that were sliced.  The lemon juice mixed with the cranberries, sugar, and grapes mixture had a nice taste after it was finished and cooled. 

I mixed the “mystery mix” with pumpkin in the mix, with Peter’s “goody” bag. 

The “Thanksgiving Mystery Pizza”, was dressed with the a little St. Dalfour Royal Fig, Grande mozzarella, and then the cranberry mixture.  When the pie was almost finished baking I took some ground pumpkin seeds (I had toasted from my Halloween pumpkin) and sprinkled them over the pie.  After the mystery pumpkin pie was baked, I brushed melted butter on the rim and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.

The mystery pizza was bake on the bottom rake of my oven on the stone at about 500 degrees F for 8 ½ minutes.

Now, what member wouldn’t want this for a Thanksgiving dessert. The crust even had pumpkin pie spices in it.  Does anyone want to guess what the “mystery mix” was?  Being from Pa. it is always traditional to have pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving.

Since no one wanted to guess what I used for the mystery pizza dough, these are the pictures of what I used.

I decided to try another Triple Berry Pizza with Betty Crocker’s Triple Berry mix with Peter’s “goody bag” since fresh strawberries are plentiful in our area now and it was easy to get blueberries, orange marmalade  and a lemon at market.  I mixed Peter’s “goody bag” Monday evening.  I was also hungry for another Triple Berry Pizza.

Well things didn’t go as planned yesterday, but the Triple Berry Pizza still was very good.  My taste testers really liked the Triple Berry Pizza and different people stopped when we were dressing the pizza to comment how good it looked.  I think we could have sold some slices, but we had enough taste testers and I also wanted to take a few slices home to my mom. 

To explain all that went wrong, first of all we were busy since the weather was nice and some school children are out of school.  Then to add to that, I gave Steve two plastic containers (one with the hot water in and one to weigh the water out), and he had placed the one container on the scales and weighed the water part of the formulation out.  I quickly grabbed the wrong container with the leftover water and put the wrong amount of water in the mix.  It wasn’t enough of hot water so I just added some more.  Wrong move.  :-D The dough then was highly sticky.  We put the plastic container up on top of the scale above the cash register.  Randy, Steve, Bill and I were carrying on and Randy (who said earlier he would never eat a pizza made like that) decided to pull the container down to look at how it was fermenting.  Well I guess the lid on the plastic container must have popped from the fermentation and Randy ended up dumping the dough onto a Sicilian pizza on the deli case and also on top of the deli case.  :o What a mess to try and get what we could of the dough off of the deli case and partly off the top of the Sicilian pizza.  There even was a little tomato sauce mixed in with the Triple Berry dough.  The dough was then floured some and put back into the container to let to ferment for a little while.  In the meantime we became really busy again and couldn’t make the pizza.  After that darn Randy said he wouldn’t eat a pizza made from that Triple Berry mix, he was then anxious for me to try to make it.  Finally, the Triple Berry dough ball was used to try and make a pizza.  It was highly fermented and very extensible, I guess from it fermenting too long.  The skin wanted to rip, so I just stretched it as good as I could and then put orange marmalade on as the dressing and just parbaked for a little and then put it on a screen to finish the parbaking.  It was then taken out of the oven and fresh cut strawberries and blueberries were added, along with the juice from half a lemon.  Then a little white granulated sugar was sprinkled over the top.  The Triple Berry Pizza was baked until the blueberries started to split. 

The resulting “Sukie” Triple Berry Pizza with Peter’s “goody bag” tuned out very well.  That darn Randy even liked it so much that he ate two slices.  I believe Sukie was proud as seen in the last picture.  ;D  Even though the Triple Berry Pizza didn’t turn out like before, it sure was good and I think my mom will enjoy her two slices.
