Sourdough Pizza for One

January 20, 2011

Some days, things don’t go as planned.

The one hour swim you slotted for this morning turns into 20 minutes of actual laps and 10 minutes in the hot tub.

The flannel shirt you grabbed out of your husband’s closet makes you look like a lumberjack.

The lunch you packed the night before tastes like cardboard come lunch time.

The leftovers in the fridge intended to be a quick dinner just don’t sound appealing after a long day at work.

A day like today may cause some to order takeout and watch a night long marathon of ABC Family’s Secret Life of American Teenager on Netflix.  I’m not saying that’s what I would do, but I’m just throwing it out there.

Now before you pick up your phone and place an order at *insert name of the tasty, always ready to deliver Chinese restaurant down the street,* I want you to take an inventory of your fridge.

Got bread? Tomato sauce? Cheese? Thought so.

Sourdough Pizza for One

Few slices sourdough bread

olive oil

butter

pizza sauce

veggies of your choice

cheese

Preheat over to 425.  On a baking pan, place slices of bread.  Drizzle with olive oil.  While oven is preheating, sauté veggies in some olive oil and butter.  My veggies of choice tonight were spinach, onions, and red pepper.  Top each slice of bread with some pizza sauce.  Next, add veggies and cheese. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and melty.  If your feeling spicy, sprinkle melted cheese with oregano and red pepper flakes.

You’ll be thankful you didn’t order that takeout. Trust me.

    Yum! This recipe looks delicious – simple and I probably already have all the ingredients. Sometimes we do need a reminder to “inventory” the fridge instead of defaulting to [usually unhealthy] convenience! Thanks for sharing. And girl, enjoooooy that hot tub! 🙂
