Mama's favourite dinner

Homemade pizza
  • organic wholewheat thincrust
  • drizzle with extra virgin olive oil
  • organic tomatoes
  • organic basil
  • home grown cherry tomatoes
  • buffalo mozzarella
  • sea salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • shavings of Dutch Unie Kaas Robusto cheese from Wholefoods
  • glass of chianti

And oh how I love Mondays-Wednesdays when Reuben's at school and I can sample the Robusto with Callum who pants and says "mmmmm" all the way through the tasting at Wholefoods in Westwood Village and then I can get home and make my favourite pizza. If anyone would like to share their own Italian-style pizza recipes, please do under Comments.

Well, this isn't an Italian pizza, but I did make a homemade pizza on Monday and we really enjoyed it:
*tomato sauce
*sauteed onions, garlic, zucchini, red bell pepper, sundried tomato and spinach in a little olive oil
*chopped kalamata olives
*feta cheese
*red pepper flakes
I had par-cooked my crust (email me if you'd like the recipe for the dough) in the oven, then topped it with all of the above. Then we actually finished the whole pizza off on the BBQ (it was too hot to turn on the oven again). It was delicious!

I also love any pizza topped with fresh arugula, a little good olive oil, salt and pepper and maybe even some balsamic. Fresh salad on warm pizza - so yummy, and all an all in one meal.
