What's for Dinner?

Cheater Homemade Pizza:

If you have the time and energy, make your pizza dough.  If you are short on either, pick up a ball of whole wheat pizza dough from your grocery store, like we often do.  It really does make a nice crust for pizza, and it makes for way fewer dishes to wash.





This week, we topped our pizza with a base of sun-dried tomato and garlic spread, a few cups of sauteed baby spinach and onions, kalamata olives, goat cheese and a sprinkling of mozzarella.



And baked it at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes until it looked like this:


And then we sprinkled it with a few dashes of hot sauce (which I use on almost everything), especially good when your hot sauce is named after a Red Sox player.

And then we ate it.  And then, after all those onions, garlic, hot sauce and olives, we kissed a lot.
And no, in case you wondered, my kids wouldn't eat this.

I love homemade pizza!

If you don't have a pizza stone, I highly recommend one. It makes your pizza 100x times better and its pretty inexpensive.

yes! Thanks Heather, that is a pizza stone, actually, a very old one! We love it and use it for pizzas and breads. You are right... I highly recommend it!
