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...]

Pizza Party Giveaway

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

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 recipe because it is the dirtiest page in the cookbook  – a true sign [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...]

Pizza Crust and Sauce

I read it somewhere on the internet. This week is National Pizza Week. It is usually pizza week at our house every week and some form of pizza is on the menu just about every week.  Sometimes it is from Papa Murphy’s and sometimes it is homemade. This week in honor of National Pizza Week I made homemade pizza. If I ever had to choose just one food item to eat the rest of my life, it would be pizza.  I love pizza.  I am a boring pizza eater though.  [Continue Reading...]

Cowboy Calzone:Ree & Leigh{Anne}

calzone

Cowboys may like calzone because they are quick and easy to eat on the run but so do us civilian folk , especially busy civilian folk!! A calzone is like a pizza pocket or turnover.  In Italian it actually means “stocking” or “trouser”.  Not really sure how it resembles a stocking or trouser but oh well! The great thing about calzone is they can be eaten out of hand or with a knife and fork.  They freeze well so they are perfect for a quick snack or lunch for someone. [Continue Reading...]

Pizza Hut Pan Pizza

Years ago we went to Disney World. We got into town late and we were starving. The first restaurant we found near our hotel that was open was Pizza Hut. We ordered one of their deep dish pan pizzas. I remember it being the most delicious thing I had ever eaten – it could have been that I was ABSOLUTELY STARVING and anything would have tasted good but ever since then I have had an affection for their pan pizza. Our family favorite is pepperoni and black olive! When I [Continue Reading...]
