It seems like Palm Springs was a month away! Sadly, it was only 10 days ago that we left. How does this happen? It's been a busy time, catching up on extra cuddles from my daughter; sifting through the work that was left piled on my desk; and getting the house back to it's regular state - free of anything that had to do with lying in the sun (emptying suitcases and doing laundry). Booooooo!
This wasn't a week that I had time to do a homemade pizza crust...so for dinner one night, I did what I do when I want pizza quick, but don't want to order a greasy one and also want a little extra taste that almost always seems to be missing from the frozen storebought ones: I dress it up.
This time I tried a "margherita" pizza from Buitoni. You can see the before photo here:
I then proceeded to "dress it" with extra pizza sauce (loaded with good tomatoes), lots of spinach and a tiny bit of extra shredded parm cheese.
Result: Delicious. In the past, have generally used whatever I have had in the fridge for leftover veggies to dress up boring pizza's. It's an easy shortcut on the nights that you need a quick fix. I also have to say that I really enjoyed the crust on this new pizza - it was crispy and quite good for frozen.
Try it tonight!!
My #1 advice to people around this time of year is to be absolutely intentional with everything: with the parties you choose to ...
