      Well Jesse,
      We began by sauteing chopped shallots (small reddish onions) in butter and oil, added a minimal amount of minced garlic, deglazed with a wee bit of white wine, added our chopped crimini mushrooms and finished with some chicken stock reduction.
      Let me know how it goes! I’m impressed that your pulling this off for your family. Good on you!

        I made that dough and it turned out good and me and my moms friend who also knows some stuff about cooking and we decided to put a little of that ramp butter that i made and knead it in the dough and we also put a little in the pizza sauce and we are just waiting for the dough to rise a little more and then we are going to be making it tonight and i will tell you at school how it taste. also i am starting a little cook book for my self and if you woul;d like to contribute anything i am open and willing to add it and i would appreciate it.
