Am I the only one who doesn’t feel like cooking much during the summer? I don’t want heavy foods, I would love just some salad with a little chicken, mushrooms and onions on top. A nice light dressing..I think I could eat that every day. Maybe some avocado to change things up occasionally.
Unfortunately, my family thinks I should still cook real meals. Yesterday my husband even suggested lasagna! Umm, no, not even close to being on my list of summer activities! Okay, maybe for our anniversary/Father’s Day coming up or his birthday but not just for any old day out of the week! Lasagna, said so casually, as if it doesn’t take forever to make. Hmmphh.
Grilled pizza is becoming one of our favorite go to meals. I personally like mine with a thin crunchy crust, a little Greek salad dressing and salad on it, and a few pieces of grilled chicken. My kids are more typical-pepperoni, black olives, cheese, tomato sauce, maybe a little pineapple if they are feeling adventurous.
On Friday we are having friends over to celebrate the end of school and we will be learning how to make bbq chicken pizza and chicken alfredo pizza. I am going to try out a new pizza crust recipe from Baking Beauties, gluten free of course. My girls are missing thicker crusted pizza. Most gf crusts tend to be thin and crispy. This one promises to be be a thicker chewy version. I am going to omit the egg white and milk as those don’t fit in with our allergy profiles. I am hoping it still comes out. I’ll let you know if we think it’s a keeper :-) Check out some of their topping ideas too.
What are some of your favorite unusual pizza toppings? I would love some that are dairy free but still yummy for my dairy free girls :-)
