I’ve been craving homemade pizza for a while now. Thanks to my successful food week, I finally had the necessary ingredients on hand! Hunger, however, was another complication. I did a number on my appetite with the peanut butter fest at Fairway earlier this afternoon. I started feeling some almost-hunger pangs around 9:30 and immediately popped up to get going on my mini-pie. I made the crust the same way I make whole wheat wraps, except that I used my hands to flatten the dough rather than a rolling pin because I didn’t want my pizza crust quite so paper-thin:
When the wrap finished cooking in the pan, I put it on a pizza stone in the oven to broil for a few more minutes until it was crispy enough.
Meanwhile, I sauteed the zucchini rescued from Thursday night’s lecture along with 1 tsp of minced garlic:
When the crust was ready, I topped it with tomato sauce, the zucchini, cheese (also from Thursday night), and toasted/burnt butternut squash seeds:
The pizza went back in to broil for another five minutes until everything was heated and the cheese started to brown:
Ready to go with my pizza tools (thanks, dad!):
I used the roller to cut the pizza into four slightly-larger-than-bite-sized pieces:
Hit the spot! For dessert, I had a spoonful of my frozen cake from last week at work:
And I also did quite a bit of “taste-testing” of a secret baking project that will hopefully turn into part of the BSI prize.
Speaking of which, submit your BSI recipes!!!
