Don’t forget the pizza..

Wow! I can’t believe that I forgot to tell you about the PIZZA. I got in from work several nights ago, craving homemade pizza. NC Man and I hit the local grocery and stocked up on the best italian meats and cheeses. The base of the pizza was a simple pre-made eight inch round crust. Then the homemade sauce. We started with organic tomato paste. We added fresh basil, fresh tomatoes, oregano, sea salt, fresh ground pepper, dried parsley, onions, green peppers, and red peppers. This heavenly mixture simmered for about an hour while we prepared all of our ingredients. We were also enjoying one of our favorite Italian beverages, Peroni. I think a little of it made it into the sauce also. Once the sauce was spread, we covered the pizzas with pepperoni, pancetta, salami, mozarrella, parmesan, and the veggies. I made all of my pizzas with the veggies on top of the cheese. NC Man put the cheese on top. They are equally delicious. I just think everything on top is more artistic and pretty. We each made three varieties and they all we wonderful. It was a fantastic night.

If you are feeling like something different, why not try some homemade pizzas? Here are a few of ours:


Isn’t the one on the right pretty?



Yummy. I am getting hungry just looking at them.


The next day we used all the leftover meats, cheese, veggies, and herbs to make panninis. Yeah, it was an all italian weekend. And it was FUN!


Yep, that’s me after a hard day of gardening. Man, that was a great sandwich.
