Here is a little blogging secret. I often make things far in advance before you ever see them on my blog. Sometimes, I am just not sure if any particular project or recipe is a good fit for my blog. Sometimes, I just need to think about what I am going to say about it before I post. Also, sometimes, I just get inspired and make a bunch of things at once, therefore a ” line” is formed for when I am actually going to post about any particular subject.
I made this pizza about a month ago.
When making pizzas at home, I often refer to my pizzas as ” Garbage Pizza” because I am literally taking anything I happen to have in my fridge and using them as pizza toppings.
My husband often works 12-14 hour days for his accounting job. So I was astonished, when one day he called saying he would come home for lunch. I made this pizza for the two of us to have.
This pizza only took about 20 minutes to make.
The proper term for this type of pizza is called a ” White” Pizza. A “White” Pizza is a pizza that does not have red pizza sauce on it.
I LOVE this thin pizza crust that you get pre made at the store. I sometimes make homemade pizza crust. I have not been able to get mine as crispy as this!
Asparagus is such an amazing vegetable. Roasted, grilled or steamed el dente. Love LOVE it!
Lets talk about Ham. I like to use it in the place of prosciutto when I am making Italian food. Prosciutto is expensive and not readily available in Southeast Iowa. Ham is salty and works great on Sandwiches or tossed with pasta if you want to make a quick meal.
Goat Cheese is the reason why I could never go vegan. Its amazing on everything. enough said.
Together, they made one great pizza.
