Pizza Tips

by Meghann on July 5, 2011

Pizza Tip #1: Pre-made Publix dough rocks! It’s reasonably priced and almost as good as the homemade stuff.

Pizza Tip #2: If you leave the aforementioned Publix pizza dough on the counter for too long the yeast goes into overdrive and created too many bubbles. In other words – don’t do it!

Pizza Tip #2.5: Cover the holy crust with sauce, no one will notice. Umm… until the they cut into it later… 😉


Pizza Tip #3: Eggplant cut in the rounds is prettier than pepperoni.


Pizza Tip #4: Fresh Mozzarella and Parmesan are a thousand times better than the pre-shredded stuff.

Pizza Tip #5: An undercooked pizza crust = doughy pizza crust


Pizza Tip #6: Add the basil last. Much better fresh on top than burnt on the bottom.


Pizza Tip #7: Pizza and salad go together like peas and carrots.


Pizza Tip #8: Raisins on spinach with a lemon herb dressing definitely counts as a salad


Pizza Tip #9: Always follow pizza with chocolate


Pizza Tip #10: An apple makes the perfect afternoon pre-pizza snack


Pizza Tip #11: Peace Out

Baby, You’re a Firework

July 5, 2011

Happy Birthday America! Who stayed up past their bedtime watching the local firework display? Anyone? My afternoon was spent the same way as my morning – glued to the couch with ice on my knee and remote and computer in hand. Do you know how difficult it is to sit still? Very. Derek officially became more »
