While The Hubs Is Away…
… in the kitchen I play. Seriously. When the hubs is out on business, I cook, try to make myself something fun. It’s my time to experiment considering Mike is picky has a limited palate. Sometimes I find a new recipe. But most times I toss stuff in a bowl and keep my fingers crossed. A little kitchen chemistry, if you will.
I know that veggie pizza is a no brainer: crust, sauce, veggies, cheese. But I couldn’t believe how yummy this turned out. I cheated with one of those “add hot water” pizza crusts but spiced it up with olive oil, fresh parsley and garlic powder. I could have eaten the crust by itself. I topped it with every vegetable I had in the house: tomato, onion, red and green pepper, broccoli and mushrooms. And then the mozzarella.
Cheese, like bacon, is a way of life.
I baked it and then viola! dinner is served. A drizzle of ranch dressing and it was ready – I gobbled it up.
Now some of you might be thinking “Hey, I bet your loving hubs would like that.” You’d be wrong. I’ve never seen the man eat any kind of vegetable on his pizza. And besides, this isn’t for sharing. Nope – all mine. I made this last week and I’ve been jonesing for it ever since. I look forward to veggie pizza night… but I’ll wait until another business trip comes up. Sharing is so overrated.
