Pizza Dough II
This dough has a very nice consistency. I used a high quality unbleached all-purpose flour instead of bread flour, but didn't notice a difference. The whole wheat adds a delightful texture, crispness, and nuttyness. I baked at 500 degrees F and used my cookie sheet dusted with flour for 10 mins. I don't know how it freezes as I made all three balls into pizza. I made one with pineapple and it was borderline wet in the center on top. I recommend brushing the crust with olive oil and sprinkling with some dried herbs. The whole family enjoyed this treat.

Peach Kuchen
Very nice and not too sweet. I made it with fresh peaches (3 in my case) and butter. The dough was sticky, but workable. This is more like a shortbread with fruit on top, as the size prior to baking is its size after baking. I think it would be delightful with tea or vanilla ice cream. The next time I'll probably try it with some Ginger, Nutmeg, or Five Spice. The Cinnamon was good, but I think one of these would take it up a notch. Everyone enjoyed it and it was easy to do with very few ingredients or steps, so I'll make it again for sure.

Cottage Cheese Loaf
I substituted raisins for the candied mixed fruit peel and baked as muffins, but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. My children really liked these and I did too, but... I think they are missing -something, perhaps spice. I'm thinking nutmeg or cinnamon, maybe chinese five spice. They definitely have a beautiful texture and sponge to them which would be a shame to pass up. I will most likely make these again, but add some spice to help them fulfill their potential.
