Recipe Time

Sorry folks, there will be no WTFs of the week today because I don’t have the time or energy to put into that.  It’s been a long week.  Instead, enjoy this very easy pizza recipe from the very easy dinner I made last night!

One of my train buddies gave me the link to his blog and I was checking it out yesterday.  He had some funny posts and among them were a few recipes (his tutorial on how to make a bowl of cereal was especially entertaining).  It reminded me that I’ve posted perhaps one recipe in my blogging history and I figured I’d remedy that today.

I know the picture isn’t the greatest, but I promise it was a good-looking (and more importantly, a great-tasting) pie.

I’m not one to follow detailed cooking instructions and when it comes to recipes, I usually just throw together a bunch of stuff that I have sitting around.  The meal last night was no different.  I had a hankering for some pizza but no real desire to spend any money so I peeked in the fridge to see what I could come up with.  Here are the ingredients of my dish, in order of what went on first:

marinara sauce

goat cheese (love this stuff – it made the pizza)

spinach

sliced bella mushrooms

mozzarella cheese

So yeah, nothing fancy.  One of my many jobs was working in a pizza place and I learned long ago that the best way to sauce a pie is to ladle a bunch in the middle and smooth it out in a circular movement with a spoon.  I did that, loaded up the toppings and sprinkled some oregano, basil, garlic and crushed red pepper on top.  Then I stuck it in my handy toaster oven for about 15 minutes and it was good to go!

I should probably mention that I used a piece of pita bread as the base of the pizza.  I’ve found that pita works well for such a dish, as do english muffins.  I like the pita and muffin idea mostly because it makes a nice, personal sized pizza and it’s super easy to cook.

Bon Appetit!
