Pizza! (aka, clean out the fridge dinner)



Honor came home from school asking for pizza yesterday, but I told her no because we planned on going to the club for swimming and dinner tonight. We won't buy dinner two nights in a row. But I did agree that we could make pizza. While she napped, I made up some pizza dough. A double batch for 2 types of pizza... and because we like enough pizza for leftovers. I dug into the veggie crisper to see what needed to be used up. LOTS of tomatoes. Into the blender with you! Tomatoes, a little onion, oregano, and garlic. Looked like pizza sauce to me after a moment or two on 'puree'.

Honor woke up about the time I was pre-baking the crusts so they wouldn't be soggy. Brian wasn't interested in helping. He was tired. After he finished his homework, he plopped into a comfy chair with his Webkinz pal for awhile. Eventually he got up a bit of energy, but made it only a few feet and collapsed on the couch with a book. So, it was just Honor and me to fix the pizzas.

One pizza started with leftover BBQ ribs and sauce. Not much meat, but the sauce was nice, with yellow peppers, onion, and mushroom. Honor added some bits of pineapple, leftover chicken, and olives as well. The other pizza had the tomato sauce, the chicken, pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, pineapple. Oh, and lots of cheese on both. We baked it, and pulled it out of the oven just as Brad came home from work. Tasty!
