After many years of satisfying cooking and eating, I am finally getting into pizza making. The reason is that my father is dying of heart failure and can only eat small amounts of sodium. One of his favorite foods is pizza but he told me this week (with a sad frown) that he had to give it up in the interest of staying alive longer. My mom doesn't like cooking and never has so she's not about to hand-make pizza. However, she is the only reason why my father has lived this long and, since he can't eat much sodium, they can't go out like they used to. She's had to take up cooking on a daily basis and it's completely stressing her out. So part of my contribution to dad's end of life care is cooking for both of them.
I've started some dough this morning and will finish some pizzas tomorrow for their freezer. Dad's favorite is Hawaiian followed closely by combination, so that's what I'm starting with. If anybody has any suggestions for making sodium-free pizza taste good I'd sure appreciate hearing from you.
