Chicken and Herb White Pizza

Chicken and Herb White Pizza

In going through old recipes (about 650 of them), I occasionally have a taste memory that comes to mind upon reading the title or seeing the photos. That was 100% the case when I saw this gem. Question, why don’t we put Alfredo sauce on pizza? It’s pretty much the best thing ever.

Friday Night Pizza Dough

Friday Night Pizza Dough

I used to drive a little bright red stick-shift car with a sunroof and an awesome sound system. I took lots of scenic, windy roads to my job. On Friday afternoons in the spring and fall, I’d put down all the windows and the sunroof and rock out to Bruce Springsteen on the way home...

No-Cook Quick Tomato Sauce

No-Cook Quick Tomato Sauce

Pizza is definitely one of my favorite things to make (and eat, for that matter). I make my own dough which, though pretty simple, is an extra step in the process. I love veggie pizzas so I usually have some work to do for the toppings as well (sauteeing mushrooms, roasting eggplant, etc.). Making...

Pizza Carbonara

Pizza Carbonara

While I was making this pizza I got a really annoying phone call. I was peeved, but then I thought about how good the pizza was going to be, and I got over it. Is that like, comfort eating? No, this pizza was just THAT GOOD. Haven’t enjoyed a meal this much, I dare...

Stromboli

Stromboli

As I’m writing this up I’m remembering back to eating this last Friday night. This is what occurred in my brain… “stromboli… food of the gods”. It’s technically ambrosia that means food of the gods, and someone made a recipe with marshmallows, fruit, coconut, and whipped cream and named THAT ambrosia. Dummies! I think...

Blue cheese, Bacon and Spinach Salad Pizza

Blue cheese, Bacon and Spinach Salad Pizza

If you consider yourself a healthy eater while still having an inordinate obsession with pizza, you might play the same tricks I do. You know, blot grease with napkin (which ps can actually save up to 100 calories), pulling off some excess cheese, or skipping the crust (I don’t use that trick – crust...

Fried Dough – Zeppole

Fried Dough – Zeppole

Remember how I mentioned this week about our Seven Fish dinner? You’d think the star of the show would be the sauce full of seafood that simmers for hours: well not in my book. My cousins and I used to steal these from my Mom-mom, fresh from the oil, and tear into them with...

Simply Perfect Tomato Sauce

Simply Perfect Tomato Sauce

Last week my cousin says to me, “are you more of a cook or a baker?” Baker, definitely. “Why?”, she asks. Well, I like to follow a recipe and know I’ll get exactly what’s promised. Except, I say, for basics like tomato sauce. “Well I don’t know how to make my own tomato sauce”,...

Brussels, Bacon and Parmesan Pizza

Brussels, Bacon and Parmesan Pizza

Pretty sure I’ve said this before, but if you don’t like brussels sprouts it’s because you’re cooking them wrong. Combine the (correctly cooked) baby cabbages with salty bacon and tangy parmesan cheese and you’ve got a pizza that is far from ordinary (in both description and flavor). This is one of the best things I’ve...
