Hockey and Pizza

After most of the week focusing on leftovers and quick meals, it was nice to spend some time in the kitchen and create something new.

Again I turned to the familiar and comforting for this week’s pizza.  I don’t know about you but when I am hyper focused on something and then it’s over, I need down time.

I can’t move from one project to the next, my brain and attention needs a break.

Yesterday was my break and it was a fantastic break day.  It was cold, rainy, and gloomy all day long.  Perfect for staying inside and catching up on things around the house.

One of the things that I could focus on for long stretches yesterday was that we were going to have pizza.  Well, let me be more specific.  I was looking forward to sitting on the couch, eating pizza, and watching hockey.  Following that up with a glass of wine.

I kept things simple for yesterday’s pie.

  • Homemade crust
  • Homemade pizza sauce
  • Shredded moz
  • Red Onion
  • Green Pepper
  • Banana Peppers
  • Buffalo Chicken sausage
  • Mushrooms (Scott’s half)
  • Cholula on top

We talked, and we watched hockey.  The crust this week turned out amazing.  Dough is such a funny thing, it is always changing no matter how often you make the same one, it has moods.

Yesterday its mood was perfect.  It was crunchy and chewy.  I knew as I was rolling it out that this dough was going to make a fabulous crust.

Wine for the evening was Coppola’s Claret, a favorite here at the HQ.  We’re looking for a wine review app.  Something we can take pics of wine and write our review about it.  Also something that provides wine recommendations or allows you to look up specific wines.  Any suggestions?

How’s your week treated you so far?

    • Deanna, Dough is super simple to make! Sometimes you’ll need more water or less depending on the weather but you would be able to easily tell what it needs. :)
