There’s a semi-half-joke that’s been running in my fam for a while now…my mom goes around telling people I’m Mexican because that’s the only food I cook.
Well, a few months later, I’m pretty sure I’ve proven her wrong.
I can cook lots of Thai food, in addition to Mexican and cupcakes. Also–after my mom decided that I was NOT Italian (although I am, biologically) but Mexican instead–I decided to prove her wrong on that account, too. I made polenta lasagne from scratch, and that was a success!
Today I made pizza. From scratch.
And while some recipes are strictly secret in our house, including pretty much all of the Italian food, I can’t tell you how to make the bread or sauce, but I will tell you what was on these delectable pizzas:
- Artichoke hearts
- Organic sweet peppers (red, orange, and yellow)
- Mozzerella, a handful of cheddar, and a bit of Romano
- Fresh mozzerella
- Fresh mushrooms
- Organic fresh basil
- Ricotta dollops
Both were amazing. Pizza No. 2 won, though, in my opinion. 🙂
I also made round pizzas that were slightly thinner crusted than my mom’s (so I could make two instead of one with the dough I had) instead of one thickly-crusted rectangle pan pizza. Highly recommend it!
