Friday Night Pizza Party
Friday night is movie night at our house. We don't have a TV and so that means we watch DVDs on our computer. Athena loves movie night and can't wait for me to say "it's time!". Tonight Rowan was magically napping late and so she and I decided to make pizzas to get us in the mood. She helped me all along the way and rolled out the dough, spread the sauce, and "decorated" the pizzas. She even cut the olives herself which was pretty cool. I had to do some quick mommy thinking because I wanted to include her in the prep but I had to think of something that her little knife could cut through. Olives were a good choice just in case you were wondering. It was super fun and tasty. I used a Trader Joe's premade dough, muir glen pizza sauce, and then added chopped spinach, olives, artichoke hearts, carmalized onions and peppers, and Follow your heart vegan cheez. I was so happy to have artichokes on my pizza as this was the first time I found organic artichoke hearts in a jar. It was very exciting. Anyway, don't forget to sprinkle some homemade parmesan on your pizza too. And we served this with a kale salad, mmm, mmm, mmm. Oh, and sometimes I do like to make my own pizza dough and sauce, but definitely not on a Friday. I'm just lucky to make anything at the end of a long week.
