Some nights are fancy…
Some nights aren’t.
There comes a time in every wife and mother’s life, when frozen pizza is worth it’s $4.99 in gold.
There are nights when the family doesn’t know the difference between fancy fresh fish and frozen tomato sauce and dough from a box.
Or doesn’t seem to care. And that’s okay.
I didn’t feel like picking around the pepperoni or tasting any of those sodium-laden pepperoni oil-infused bites so I let the family make quick work of this.
Along with a random smorgasbord from my crisper drawer, including that asparagus that I bought a week ago needed attention and a sweet potato in the back of the cupboard, I had tempeh and cucumber sticks.
I could take a bath in balsamic reduction.
I had extra bananas to use and a spare orange and so we had Baked Orange Banana Coconut Donuts with Orange Coconut Vanilla Cream Cheese Glaze for dessert.
As long as I was running the oven for the pizza, may as well pop in a tray of donuts was my logic.
What’s your favorite kind of pizza crust and toppings?
Thin crust is a must for me and it must be super crispy. I hate crispy and crunchy in desserts and cookies, but for pizza crust, it’s the only way to go.
Deep dish is like eating a loaf of dough to me and I’d rather save my carbs for this kind of dough.
My favorite toppings are cheese, pineapple, and a sprinkling of hot pepper flakes. Basically a Hawaiian pizza without the bacon. Pineapple and peppers give me the sweet ‘n spicy that I love, without the sodium bomb.
