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.

  1. If that’s frozen pizza you made it look good!!! I was undecided myself for dinner, so I made eggs. How exciting! My favorite pizza is one of tow either a tomato basil or veggie pizza with extra peppers and light on the cheese YUM!!

  2. I’ve never seen the allure of homemade pizza. If you find a good store-bought one, that seems to me like one of those times it isn’t worth the bother to do homemade, you know?

    I rarely eat pizza anymore because of the gluten thing, but when I did, I ALWAYS had it with pineapple. Never that nasty canadian bacon or ham though – bell peppers, muchrooms, and pineapple. SO good!

  3. Yes, yes, thin and crispy pizza! Dustin doesn’t like it crispy, but he’s wrong about that, lol. When we buy it at a pizza dive, I reheat it in the oven to get it crispier again. Dustin is ok eating it soggy. Blek, lol.

  4. Frozen pizza is just so CHEAP and HANDY. I also love a crisp pizza crust, although I can’t get enough of chewy cookies! Crust is definitely a huge factor in pizza success. Chicken caesar is one of our family favorites for pizza toppings.

  5. Nothing wrong with frozen pizza! I like the ones they have at Trader Joe’s with pesto and broccoli or I’ll assemble my own with a frozen crust.

  6. My favorite toppings include pineapple, avocado, chicken, and goat cheese! And I like a good hearty wheaty crust.

  7. I’m desperately searching for a ‘good and healthy’ protein powder. Iherb sounds like a great place to buy some!! What kind do you recommend?? I do like choc and vanilla flavors, and not a fan of whey. I would love to get your advice on what to choose!!! Thanks and you are awesome!!!

  8. How did you manage to make frozen pizza look amazing?! Great pictures as always.

  9. you are kidding!!!!!! OMG THAT IS SO GREAT! I’m seriously freaking out right now!! haha! We have a great new student center that is AMAZE and you need to come back and see it!!!

    Thanks for the advice on protein powders!

  10. My favorite is just a plain cheese pizza!! I know, I’m so boring!

  11. I love seeing pizza on your blog!! Is it a first?

    All pizza is pretty great in my books, and green olives are one of my favourite pizza toppings.
