Last night called for another fast food remedy. It was late, I was tired, much had transpired in the day.
Recently, I tried my hand at making my own dough from scratch. It was heaven, and I cannot wait to do it again. What I love about pizza, though, is how easy it is to whip together even if you don't have the time to get elbow deep in flour. Often, we'll throw a pizza together on a whole wheat tortilla with all kinds of toppings such as olives, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, you name it, but tonight this quick meal's base was some frozen tomato basil millet foccacia we had in the freezer. I needed to use up the very last of the tofu basil 'ricotta' so i lightly oiled the bread with olive oil, spread on the ricotta, topped that with some simple tomato sauce, sliced up a ton of zucchini in the saladaccio (have i mentioned lately how much i love that tool?!), and grated some Follow Your Heart Mozzerella style 'cheese', then sprinkled a little oregano and basil on the top before broiling until the cheese started to melt. very satisfying, if not the most balanced meal in the world. Normally, we'd make a salad to go with it, but last night just called for a quick meal before bed.
