It’s been a while since I made a breakfast pizza. I got to work early so I could have it fresh out of the oven – can I just say again how lucky I am to have a full kitchen at my office??!!
Only one problem. I didn’t bring any cheese! I improvised – there was reduced fat cream cheese in our work fridge left over from a bagel breakfast. So my pizza was: 4 ounce dough, 1/4 cup pizza sauce, 2 turkey sausages, red pepper, 2 tablespoons reduced fat cream cheese, and then when it came out of the oven, I sprinkled some of the bruchetta leftover from our Italian sliders dinner.
Hannah picked me up for lunch so we could hit up some garage sales. They were a bust, mostly kids clothes and kids selling lemonade. We picked up hot dogs and tots. My dog – mustard and hot peppers, Hannah eats hers plain. I ate 10 tater tots 😀
So dinner tonight was inspired by a show Tony watched on t.v. – Steven Raichlen’s BBQ University. This guy grills everything! In the episode Tony watched, he made a bacon and potato pizza with parmesan and mozzarella cheese with fresh herbs. We were very close on this, but I think our main problem was that our coals were a bit too hot, so the edges got a little singed. And because it just had olive oil brushed on the dough, it was a bit dry, but we will definitely try this one again – maybe with a white sauce as a base?
I also didn’t make his pizza dough recipe, because it needs to rest for a couple hours. He adds sugar and cornmeal to the crust which I definitely need to try.
I cooked the bacon and potato on our cast iron skillet:
I did not exercise at all yesterday, so I need to do a tape today. I have lots of cooking to do today – my mother-in-law is hosting a family reunion in Wisconsin, and Tony and I are prepping food for everyone’s arrival tomorrow. On the menu: tequila lime chicken wings, Italian sausage in au jus and green peppers, homemade baked beans, cold cut tray, veggie tray with dip, fruit salad – let’s hope it isn’t too hot today!
