Eating In: Home-Made Pizza
I don't know why I don't have this type of dinner more often! It might not be pretty, but DAMN it's tasty. Not to mention the lovely smell in the house.
I was looking at a packet of wholemeal "Mountain Bread" at work today thinking "what on earth am I going to do to use this up?" I eyes roamed absently over the packet, when the word "pizza" jumped out at me. Hmm, yes, what a good idea.
Of course, the great thing about home-made pizza is that it can have exactly what you want on it. For me it's the merest swipe of tomato paste topped with capsicum, semi-dried tomatoes, pineapple and ham, with a smattering of cheese to finish it all off. In line with my "make a better me" resolve all ingredients were low fat, low salt, low sugar, etc. and as healthy as I could get them. And you know what - it still tasted awesome. The mountain bread was delightful - light, and crispy, and added a lovely ever-so-subtle flavour to everything else.
I cooked up two - one to eat tonight (which I've just finished, yummo!) and one for lunch tomorrow. It can't come soon enough!
