Pizza Thursday! Oh yeah they are still happening, don’t you worry. Yesterday was a pretty fantastic day around these parts. I got a lot accomplished around the house, made some new connections, and I did all the pizza prep. This time I even made sauce!
Typically, I take the super easy way out with pizza sauce. I’d use a can of organic tomato sauce and add in some extra spices. It’s tasty, quick, and doesn’t break that bank. However yesterday I wanted something special.
It’s birthday week around these parts for yours truly! And I wanted my birthday week pizza to be killer, so I made some sauce.
I did use a big can of crushed tomatoes but there’s also some stock in there, lots of fresh veggies, and some red wine for depth. It’s fab and I will share the recipe with you soon. It made enough for our pizza last night plus four more containers of sauce which are now in the freezer waiting to be called to action.
Next time I might make an even bigger batch so I have more backup! Also? Making my own from now on, all the way.

March madness indeed all! OHC is crazy busy up in here and it doesn’t look like it’s letting up anytime soon.
I loaded up with a center piece and a HUGE corner piece. Then I went back in for a third piece because it was so so good! The sauce was perfect for the pizza, though next time I’ll have to be sure to use a touch more. It absorbed into the crust a little bit and I want some saucy action as I eat!
We finished up the Pens game from Tuesday and holy crap they won! In regulation time! It was a glorious thing to witness, trust me. We sipped on wine that I don’t have a picture of because they are all blurry. Sorry about that!
It was a 2008 Pinot Noir by Echelon and it was a really lovely wine. Very smooth with a slight dry finish and very light as well. Didn’t sit heavy on the tongue and was a nice follow-up to the pizza.
I also had some mini eggs because it’s Spring and you have to eat mini eggs!
Any plans for the weekend? Sadly mine involve work and other related type things. Booo!
