Another pizza success!

First off.  Woah, what a day.  Busier than busy can be then had to deal with this on the drive home

traffic

I don’t often get in really bad funks, but kiddos, I was in one after this.  All I wanted to do was go somewhere and just be alone, to burn off this excess bad energy.  I know that is horrible to say, but that’s how I felt and I think I have to be honest with you friends…. this lady can’t be happy all the time 😦

So instead of yoga I decided to escape to the gym…. 2 miles on the elliptical at level 13 and some ab work later I was feeling a lot better.  Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do, each of us is different and learning how to handle these types of situation is what life’s all about, right? 😉

So after I got back home we went over to World Market to pick up the rug that had finally come in — and it ended up being on sale for $70 bling bling$ — seriously!!! What a steal, this thing is chenille and feels like heaven (I HATE cheap rug feel!)

In da room (sorry, not so neat peeps, and not so furnished quite yet!)

Steph = pleased 🙂  whoop whoop!

So after our rug-venture The Man offered to help me whip up tonight’s din, soooooooo appreciated because I was tiredddd by this point!  So we halved the original wheat pizza crust recipe from last go-round (we wanted a thinner crust this time)

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tblsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tblsp cooking oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 tblsp honey

The Man actually made the whole thing himself and even kneaded the dough — yea ladies (and gents), I was IMPRESSED!!!  He’s a keeper 😉

Here’s what I topped my half with (it was a “use up what ya got” kinda night)

  • pizza sauce
  • sauteed TJs roasted peppers/onions
  • smashed white beans w/ basil (leftover from last night, throw in basil, smash with fork)
  • black olives
  • feta
  • parm
  • black pepper
  • dried basil

The Man had this combo

  • pizza sauce
  • sauteed TJs roasted peppers and onions
  • black olives
  • mozzarella
  • parm
  • feta

Check out the step by step!

Can you tell whose is whose?!

step1

Add the cheesy

step2

400F for 9 minutes – voila!

done

I also made some TJs “brittany blend” — a combo of green beans/carrots w/ some soy sauce to go alongside 🙂

It was really fast and good!!! I loved the addition of the white bean/basil “smash” on top — and that really “beefed” up the protein factor 🙂

Alright peeps, this girl hasn’t even packed yet and Grey’s is on in t-minus 8 minutes…. gotta run!

Have a great night bloggies — tomorrow’s Friday 🙂

  9. Thanks for the World Market tip off…Looooove that place! I’m headed there tomorrow. My wallet is so scared it’s shakin’ right now!

    I was just wondering if you ever got in a bad mood – you always seem so cheerful and upbeat! 🙂 We all have those days…I give you props for the hittin’ the gym and not the boys (Ben & Jerry) – NOT that I’ve ever done that. 😉

    • Oh I def get in my fair share of funks, esp when work is hectic :/ and I think that if I want this blog to be the “real me” then I can’t hide that!! Thanks for your supportive comment girl 🙂 🙂
