When Vince called Wednesday to tell me he wasn’t going out of town, I had nothing on the menu for Wednesday night. There were a couple of dishes in the freezer I could defrost and cook but none of them sounded good. I decided on pizza and knew I could find everything I needed in my fridge. Just a little work and we’d have a top notch pizza for dinner.
Front right – I opened a jar of home canned tomatoes and added spices – oregano, garlic, basil, fennel seed, and anything else in the spice cabinet that looked like it might work. It simmered for a couple of hours til it was thick. Then I added just a little bit of brown sugar.
Middle right – Pepperoni
Back – Mozzarella cheese
Middle left – Prosciutto
Front left – Mushrooms and onions which I sauteed in a little olive oil.
For the crust, I used some of the olive oil bread dough in the fridge . . dough from the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day book.
In no time at all, we had a yummy pizza.
This was one of those times when I was so glad to have lots of “ingredients” in my fridge. Even better, I only used half of all the ingredients so today for lunch, we’ll have another homemade pizza!
