Thin Crust Margherita Pizza

Thin Crust Margharita Pizza @yourhomebasedmom.com

Thin Crust Margherita Pizza is delicious in its simplicity! I’m a huge fan of pizza.  It is pretty much my favorite food of all time.  When my husband started eating dairy free and gluten free the hardest thing for me was he no longer ate pizza.  So sad!  I use to love going out for a date night and checking out a new pizza place.   So occasionally I take myself out to my favorite Portland pizza place for a slice of pizza for lunch or I  buy myself a [Continue Reading…]

Proscuitto, Blackberry and Basil Pizza

I make a lot of trips to Utah.  My two daughters are there and a lot of Jim’s family is too so I love making trips there to participate in family events since we don’t have any close extended family nearby. One of my goals for each of my trips to Utah is to find a new restaurant to try in the Provo/Salt Lake City area.  I had seen some pictures on several of my Utah friend’s Instagram accounts of pizza. I am a huge pizza fan so I knew [Continue Reading…]

Arugula Salad Pizza

Arugula Salad Pizza

I am one of those boring people that get the same thing every time they go to a restaurant.  I have my favorite dish and I don’t deviate.  I’m always afraid of being disappointed if I do.  At California Pizza Kitchen I actually have two favorites that I alternate between.  The first is their Sicilian Pizza and the one I get the most often is their Tricolore  Salad Pizza.  I love it! For our Super Bowl Party I decided to recreate the Tricolore Salad Pizza at home.  Lest you think [Continue Reading…]

How about we start the week off with a Pizza Party!  Who doesn’t love a pizza party!?! When my kids were little if you were to ask them what their favorite foods were I’m pretty sure two of the top five would have been pizza and macaroni & cheese(out of the box). Those were two foods I knew they would always eat and they would have a hard time choosing between!  In fact over Christmas we had a fun breakfast conversation with the kids and talked about if we could [Continue Reading…]

Strawberry Pizza

Strawberry Pizza is a delicious and fun way to serve those fresh ripe strawberries! We picked our first strawberries from the garden this last week.  There is nothing like a strawberry fresh out of the garden. I didn’t have to think long about what to make with the strawberries.  Traditionally one of our family’s favorite “first strawberries of the season” recipes is Strawberry Pizza,  a sure sign that strawberry season is here.   It is from my favorite cookbook – Portland Junior League Portland Palate. I never have trouble finding the [Continue Reading…]

Breakfast Pizza and Breakfast with Friends

The holidays are here – are you ready for the craziness?  I decided I needed a little peace before the storm so I decided to invite a few girlfriends I don’t get to see very often over for a pre-holiday breakfast this past weekend. Everytime I do something like this I end up asking myself – “Why don’t I do this more often?”  It really doesn’t get much better than a table surrounded by good friends, good food, good conversation and laughter. It is one of the details of life [Continue Reading…]

Pesto Chicken Pizza

Pesto Chicken Pizza

Several weeks ago I asked a question on Facebook.  If you had to pick one food to eat the rest of your life, what would it be? The answers were great and fun to read.  My answer was pizza. I love pizza and when you think about it, it is really a pretty healthy food because it hits so many of the basic food groups! Although I am basically a plain jane, cheese pizza kind of girl I do enjoy a specialty pizza now and then.  At our house that [Continue Reading…]
