I make pizzas for my family every Saturday night. It was easy when the kids where young they choose their own toppings. I make the dough, roll it out and leave them to get on with it. To be honest I'm finding pizzas quite boring so have started to just use the dough to make a focaccia and have cheese and tomatoes and olives with it. So I make the dough tonight, roll it out onto individual baking trays, put tomatoes and cheese for them to use. They make their pizzas put them in the oven........and leave my pizza/focaccia on the work top. FFS it just needed putting in the oven!!!! BTW they are 24 and 61 (DH not DS)

Did you ask them why?

How annoying!

You should have taken there's from them until yours was ready!
It's totally something that I would have considered doing.
And next week point them in the direction of the flour and leave them to it.

They had pizzas with just tomato and cheese on? I'm not surprised you're finding them boring.

Maybe they thought you wanted to put toppings on yours before putting it in the oven, so they were leaving you to do that when you were ready?

You need to get out more

Every Saturday and you don’t even like it

Dump the pizza, dump the Saturday night monotony and start living,

Stop making them smile

Unfortunately DH only cooks when asked and then his repertoire is limited to pasta with pesto from a jar (boring again). DD who is back for lockdown can cook and does but dishes are limited. So effectively I cook nearly every night of the week plus the planning and shopping. I just want one night when I don't have to think or do much. I'm not one for takeaways so that's not a solution. My focaccia is now in the oven, I'm having it with tomatoes from the garden, blue cheese and stuffed peppers, olives and anchovies from jars. DD says she thought I'd want olive oil or something on it......DH didn't think.....

So one of them should have put fucking olive oil on it then, it's not the krypton factor!

Well next time you need to put yours in the oven and leave their out. When thye ask just say "oh I didn't think".

Yours sounds much nicer than boring old cheese and tomato, OP.
You don't deserve those dullards! wink. Enjoy smile

I would have probably said to my family once you've sorted yours can you pop mine in too? They didn't know what you wanted to do with yours!

Have you really had pizza every Saturday since the children were small?

HorsePellets Sat 15-Aug-20 21:07:30

You’ve had pizza every Saturday night for 20 years??? (Totally missing the point)

FreekStar Sat 15-Aug-20 21:07:53

I'd be bored of pizza if I'd had it every Saturday for 20 years too! Why?

WhereYouLeftIt Sat 15-Aug-20 21:27:07

I would not be making ANYTHING for either of them for the next week. They can bore themselves rigid with their lack of interest in cooking. Oh, and make sure that they know they're doing their own washing up.

A bit of appreciation from the two of them for your care, of they don't get any.

It’s crazy that you put all the pizza ingredients and rolled dough out for your husband and adult son. I’d have done that for my kids when they were little kids but to do it for adults seems weird.

If you don’t want to cook for them just stop doing it. You don’t have to be a martyr 🤷🏻‍♀️

WhatifIfeellikeacat Sat 15-Aug-20 21:30:10

And imagine if you planned to add some toppings to your focaccia and it was already in the oven? You would be angry as well wink

You're bored of pizza every Saturday, surely they must be bored of cheese and tomato pizza every night. Then task DH with print something in his pesto pasta and DD to cook twice a week

picklemewalnuts Sat 15-Aug-20 21:41:26

I'd expect them to shout to you wherever you are "what do you want on yours? Shall I put it in?"

BeingATwatItsABingThing Sat 15-Aug-20 21:45:25

I would probably have checked if you wanted it cooking now or later but they shouldn’t have just left it.

On a side note, I like cheese and tomato pizza. I get that others think I’m weird but don’t add crap to my pizza.

brakethree Sat 15-Aug-20 21:50:45

Argh you have a DH that 'doesn't think', do you mean he doesn't think about anybody but himself? This is very easily fixed, you don't think about anything for him - it's amazing how quickly things change when you don't do any more meals, washing, gifts or anything that requires thinking and considering him and his stuff. Stop doing pizza on Saturday you're not his mother.

TatianaBis Sat 15-Aug-20 21:55:31

You’ve made a rod for your back with the acceptance of a DH that only cooks when asked and then only limited stuff.

WhatifIfeellikeacat Sat 15-Aug-20 22:05:31

That's probably what should have happened ideally.
