Bacon, Goat Cheese and Tomato Pizza
Hey there, buddy! Happy Hump Day! How goes it?!
Thanks for asking, I’m also doing well! I mean, besides being all cooped up in my house, waiting for the snow storm…
March 12 = snow storm. What the… I don’t even know anymore. I just want sun, dammit! It’s hard to even imagine that one day soon we will be able to walk out there without our snow suits. To all those that love the snow, stop. We’ve had enough of it.
In other news, I am working on my photography skills. Can you tell? I have been throwing all these white-on-white photos at ya for a reason. The reason is that I reallllly, realllllllly want to become a better photographer. White-on-white photos are a challenge for me, to say the least. But, I’m trying. I’m figuring it out. I’ll get there soon enough. Make sure you let me know when all this photo jumbo gets super annoying, k? Sphanx.
A Delicious Easy Pizza Recipe
In third news, we’re having another Giveaway! YAY! That’s three in, like, 5.2 days, you lucky dog! Hope you’re entering them all.
To remind you:
Giveaway 1: P.F. Chang’s Gift Card
Giveaway 2: CANON DSLR
Aaaaand fourthly, we’re having pizza! I asked my 16K+ Facebook fans what recipe they wanted to see next, and ALL 5 that saw the post answered back with Pizza! Only one asked for dessert.
If you had told me ten years ago that I’d be sitting here eating bacon and goat cheese on pizza, I would have agreed because ten years ago is when I first made this pizza. I was in my little downtown apartment, playing Chef Boyardeevski, throwing pizza dough around like it ain’t no thing. Next thing you know I’m choppin’ up bacon, crumbling goat cheese and slicing tomatoes. Bada bing bada boom, pizza was made, tummy was happy. Nothing better. All was/is right with the world. The End.
