Before we get to the good stuff, let’s talk about the fact that tonight while getting Peanut undressed for her bath, I dropped my iPhone in the tub.
That’s full of water.
Just kidding – I think it’s going to be ok. So far it seems to function the same way, except the speaker on it sounds very fuzzy. I fished it out immediately, removed the cover, shook it dry, and put it in rice. Per your feedback online, I’m leaving it there for a while. :::Sigh:::
Moving on. To pizza.
I actually made this a couple of weekends ago but haven’t gotten around to posting it yet. Making pizza is one of my favorite things, especially now that I’ve figured out the trick to the crust – buy the whole wheat kind at Stop n Shop, roll it out with your hands with the help of some flour, and then put it on a cookie sheet that has a light base of olive oil.
The best thing about pizza is that you can be as creative as you want and it still comes out delicious (like the time I made pizza with broccoli and hot dogs). I usually just buy the crust at the local grocery store and then use whatever is in the fridge and/or pantry.
What do you like on your pizza?
- 1 whole wheat pizza crust
- 1-2 cups of tomato sauce
- 1 can of artichoke hearts
- 1 package of spinach
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup ricotta cheese (about 8 oz)
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Brush on a light coat of olive oil on a large pan (I try to avoid corners and edges). Spread out the whole wheat pizza dough using your hands and a bit of flour and set it on the pn, then coat with tomato sauce.
- Drop spoonfuls of ricotta cheese and spread the mozzarella cheese on top.
- Drain and rinse the artichoke hearts and spread them on the pizza.
- On the stove top, heat up a little bit of oil and cook the spinach and garlic for a couple of minutes until the spinach is wilted. Spread the spinach on the pizza. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Bake in the oven at 425 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until the crust looks cooked and the cheese is slightly browned.
