Whatcha Eatin’? Beer and Pizza
After some discussion over the past week, I started thinking about my options for this blog. Now, the best feedback I got was that I should trust myself, but that people like how I talk about food. I tookt that to heart, and decided to create a semi-regular posting called “Whatcha Eatin’?” This Sunday is the first, and I was in the mood for some comfort food, so we had beer and pizza.
This weekend, the Blonde went to Trader Joe’s. Now, she went for some of our regular food shopping, but while there she snapped a pic of Trader Joe’s new vegan mozzarella style shreds. Being huge pizza people, we were excited.
Well, she was excited. I was doubtful.
Happily, I was impressed by the quality of the cheese. It melted pretty nicely, and while it wasn’t great, I preferred the taste to the taste of Daiya mozzarella.
This specific not-zzarella was a bit on the creamy side, ending up with a soft, almost liquid, texture. At the end of the day, however, it made for a pretty good pizza.
We used TJ’s pizza dough also, which we’ve used before, and it was pretty good, although I always have to add flour to get it to roll out.
A big pile of veggies (mushrooms, garlic, and onion) filled out the pizza, and for sauce, if you don’t have any homemade sauce, I tend to go for something easy, organic when possible.
All of this to tell you what I did to make my dinner!
Make sure you bake the crust before you top it or it will be soggy when you pull it out of the oven. I do it for about 8 minutes at 415*.
Top with sauce, then toppings, then cheese, and back in the oven for another 8-10 minutes, and you’re in business!
Well, you can expect me to go on about the beer I had with dinner come Wednesday, on what may be my favorite day of the week, Beer Wednesday. See you then!
