The weather this week has been to die for. Seriously. It’s in the mid 60s during my morning walks, cozying up in a sweatshirt to take Miss Ellie out. Let’s be honest. It feels like fall. And not only that but in the morning meeting the other day a producer pitched a story about the leaves changing. Fall is almost here folks.
So that got me thinking – if fall’s almost here than summer is almost over (yes, brain science I know). And well I have been slacking majorly on my summer to-do list. And an easy one that I’ve been meaning to check off – making pizza!
I had every intention of 1) making my own dough and 2) making this pizza. But for the first time all summer I didn’t have any zucchini on hand. As for the own dough part…well I saw this at the store and it looked so eassssssy.
So no zucchini. But I did have about every other veggie and lots of other goodies to use up before they went bad. So here comes the pizza with everything but the kitchen sink. Because it all depends on what’s in your fridge this recipe is a mere guideline. Got some zucchini? Throw it on there. Let all the veggies hang out!
- Pizza crust (use your own recipe or cheat like me and used Pillsbury’s new artisan pizza crust)
- red onion, sliced
- assorted peppers, sliced
- kalamata olives
- garlic, grated
- 1 cup feta cheese
- 1/2 cup parmesean
- 1 cup apple chicken sausage
- olive oil
Follow the instructions for your dough. Preheat the oven, roll it out, prebake for about 8 mins.
Rummage through your fridge and find the things you want to toss on your pizza. First off, check out this pepper. Have you ever seen a purple bell pepper? Yeah me either! (Unless you answered yes, and well than you live a more exciting life than me).
Slice and dice all your veggies. Grate your garlic. Chop up that yummy apple chicken sausage that has been hiding under everything else in your fridge drawer. Rub down the dough with olive oil. Pile on the toppings.
Top that all off with some cheese. I had lots of feta and parmesan. And to finish that off I dried out some oregano from my herb garden and sprinkle that yumminess on top.
Bake away! And obviously clean up while it’s cooking…or not. I made this the other night and well I just washed the pan tonight…
Now enjoy! And well if you’re like me than you’ll begin to enjoy it before you remember to take a finished photo. Whoops…
So what do you have in your fridge that you can top a pizza with? Let me know what you create!
