I think Thursday begs for pizza.
Actually, Fridays always make me crave pizza. Truth check: every day calls for pizza, but as a KID, we seemed to always get pizza on Fridays. At the Pizza Hut. In my neon green jams, a banana clip in my permed hair and Def Leppard blaring on the juke box. POUR SOME SUGAH ON MAAAAY.
I guess the math of all of this is that you’re reading the post on Thursday, which means you can make the pizza on Friday, thus keeping the Earth spinning in the right direction.
I’m good at science.
The sauce is creamy roasted garlic. Did I already tell you? Two entire heads of garlic, roasted into submission, then whizzed in a food processor with a smooch of milk, a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Very simple. Extremely divine. All for your face.
Overall this pizza is fairly painless. A few prep steps early in the day, and you’re just slinging it together when dinner time comes.
You’ll make the dough that morning, and let it rise and rest and rise and rest all afternoon. True fact: if you have dough rising on the counter, you’re doing things right in life. There’s nothing like saying, “I’m going to check the dough!” to. . . no one. But still.
If you buy sun dried tomatoes already chopped up, that saves you a wee bit of time. Other than that, you’ll brown the sausage, thinly slice some red onion and grate some mozzarella cheese. Ha-biggidy.
I am legit obsessed with this pizza. And I won’t call it a ‘za because I like having you in my life.
But are you seeing this? There is something so marital about sun dried tomatoes, roasted garlic and Italian sausage. I seriously might punch it in the knees.
It’s just . . . different! Comforting. Exciting. The flavors will be a nice change of pace for your tongue, given that the sauce isn’t tomato based. Instead, they’re basically little tart pockets on candy on your pizza. I KNOW you can get on board with this.
Like, I honestly can’t look at that photo without getting emotionally enraged. ^
POUR SOME PIZZA ON MAAAAAY.
That doesn’t quite work, does it.
That’s it. I’m calling it a day.
Remember, you have the Earth’s rotation to keep in mind here. You know your job.
