Pizza is a regular meal at our house for Fridays, but I don’t have time to make dough because I’m usually spending the day working. Since you can’t throw a pizza in a crockpot and let it go, my favorite shortcut is to upgrade my pizza. I get the fresh pizzas – not frozen, and then add ingredients to make it a little more scrumptious. My husband likes grilled pineapple, I like onions, peppers and chicken. I made two pizzas last Friday. My husband and I were supposed to go out to dinner, but another snow squall and a daughter who needed to be met at a drop-off point made that impossible. While my husband was on the road I put together two pizzas. The first I grilled chicken with peppers and onions. Then I chopped up the chicken and spread it all out among the cheese. The second pizza I cooked up some pancetta, grilled a little pineapple, then I caramelized onion in some pineapple juice. That went on the second pizza. Turns out my son likes the pineapple, and my daughter prefers the chicken with onions and peppers. It was fun to relax around the table and enjoy each other’s company. This week while my daughter is home on spring break we’ve been trying to make sure we sit down together every night. I swear I won’t get empty nest when my son goes away to college next year, really I swear it won’t happen to me.
