" I truly think it is best to be a robin lightly dressed concocting soup inside my nest" ~Maurice Sendak

On the Go

Well here we are.
Summers over and everyone is back to school and work.
In my home that means a more hectic pace as everyone has a busier schedule.
Fast and healthy supper options are what I look for as we settle into our new routines.

One of my go-to dinner favorites is pizza. I use dough from my local deli to save time instead of making it myself.

You can vary the toppings to suit your taste. I try to put on as many healthy vegetables as as I can.
Unfortunately my tomato crop is doing very poor this year so I chose to use sun dried tomatoes instead of fresh.
I have left out exact amounts of toppings as you can adjust to suit your tastes.

While the pizza is in the oven toss a big green salad and there you have a great weeknight meal that can even be served to friends on the weekend.

Mediterranean Style Pizza

  • 1 ball of homemade pizza dough (preferably whole wheat)

  • sliced red peppers
  • basil leaves chiffonade
  • diced bacon
  • diced onion
  • sliced pepperoni
  • sliced anchovies

  • shredded mozzarella cheese

Prepare toppings as needed.
Roll out dough to desired size to fit your pizza pan or stone.
Brush with olive oil
Spread tomato sauce evenly or the olive oil.
Sprinkle cheese over the sauce.
Evenly arrange remaining toppings over the cheese.

Place on pan or stone and bake in the oven until the dough in done in the centre and cheese is bubbly.
