If you know anything about Greek food you know pizza really isn’t a Greek thing. But who can resist some of the flavors of Greece – lamb, oregano, feta cheese, spinach and red onions on a pizza. Okay, okay – I know it’s not authentic. But believe me, if you like the flavors of Greece you will enjoy this. And pizza is always fun, right?
I think of pizza as one of those foods you whip together when you don’t really want to cook too much. That’s why I use the Boboli crust. I’m sure there are great cooks out there who feel using a Boboli for anything is an abomination. And I believe 100 percent that that’s your opinion. I beg to differ.
I know a homemade crust tastes better. However, I’m not too into bread. Yes, I had an ill-fated experience with a Brioche recipe I tried last week. But for the most part I don’t eat a lot of white flour as bread – so I just choose not to spend a lot of time cooking it. Because if I cook it – I know I’m going to want to eat it. You know how it is – if you cook it, you feel you have the “right” to eat it. Or, you somehow talk yourself into thinking it doesn’t have any calories.
I swear, if I have to look at another pizza that looks like a spider web of cheese or “eyeballs” made with all kinds of different things or cupcakes that look like skulls.
Seems like every couple years the foods get a little more gross. And with the popularity of red velvet cake when you bite into some of these “treats” it’s almost like biting into real red flesh. Ewwwwwwww!
Lordy! It just doesn’t seem at all appetizing.
When I was a kid I loved Halloween – planning out my costume with my Mom’s help. Going trick or treating. Sorting out all the candy afterward and getting almost sick on too much chocolate and sugar.
Ahhhh!! Those were the days!
That’s where I’m at tonight. Right now. My husband is zonked out with CNN droning away on the boob tube in the other room. While I’m trying to figure out what I can put together in 15 minutes flat with the ingredients in my frig after a busy afternoon working. I have a little more leftover chili from the pot I made on Sunday – but I’ve had it a couple days in a row and I’m kinda chili’d out.
It’s not going to be easy. Or pretty. This is when food goes ugly. This is when food goes “trailer trash.”
It’s crazy, isn’t it?
On a blog called “He Cooks – She Cooks” they shared a recipe for a pizza made predominantly with carmelized onions. It sounded amazing and like something that would be just the ticket with a cup of tomato bisque for dinner.
I made a few changes and came up with a pizza reasonably close to the original version but slightly healthier and easier. A friend asked me how it turned out. I said it was so decadent it was like food porn. Bown-chicka-chicka-bown-bown!
