I am so thankful that I love to cook, especially since we always seem to live where the restaurant choices are quite limited. I’m also thankful that Vince will eat pretty much anything I fix and never complain.
The plan was to have pizza for dinner this evening but the plan did not include me taking a nap and sleeping til 1:30 p.m. When I woke up, I thought . . pizza . . darn! But, I was able to make the crust and get the pizza on the table by 3:30. Two pizzas, in fact, and crust in the freezer for two more. Not bad!
Pizza #1 has homemade sauce from our tomatoes, caramelized red onions from the garden, turkey pepperoni, homemade Canadian bacon, black olives and of course, mozzarella cheese.
Pizza #2, which is my favorite, has no red sauce. I caramelized the onions and garlic in butter and spread that on the crust. Next was some thick chunks of fresh mozzarella. Then I added some tomatoes from the garden that I had chopped and drained, and finally, some fresh basil, with a little black pepper and fennel seeds. Yum!
There are leftovers enough for a couple of lunches next week . . if I can keep it hidden from Vince. He loves leftover pizza!
