(somewhat) homemade pizza

… very fast if you need dinner on the run

3.2 veggie wednesday – happy march 🙂

it has been far too long between posts, friends! things have gotten hectic, dos senorita-wise, but we’re back in action!

things you will need:

store-bought pizza crust
canned pizza sauce
bagged cheese (mozzarella, 5-cheese, etc)
olive oil
assorted veggies
an oven!

meet your chefs for the evening (plus rod, who did not want his photo taken):

danabot returns in her original form, while katiebot (seen here for the first time ever) rides in on a bottle of wine.

1. coat the bottom of the pizza crust with olive oil and sprinkle with cornmeal. this gives the crust a nice, texturized bottom.

2. flip back over and slather with pizza sauce.

3. sprinkle with cheese!

4. chop your veggies. helpful hint: don’t wash your mushrooms – it apparently does something to the texture, and makes them not taste as delicious as they should. instead, rub the dirt off gently with a damp paper towel or cloth.

danabot was in charge of chopping (because she has arms), while katiebot attempted to drink a glass of water (which she couldn’t, because she has no arms. but notice her festive scarf).

5. arrange your veggies so they’re pleasing to the eye.

rod hates olives and katiebot hates bell peppers, so our pizza was very segregated.

6. bake the pizza for 10-15 minutes at 450 degrees. keep an eye on it – it’s easy to overcook if you forget it’s in the oven.

7. voila!
