Etsy Bloggers Blog Carnival
Today is the day for one of the bi-weekly Etsy Bloggers Blog Carnivals! We have to choose one theme or question to answer for this feature. I chose: 1) Your favorite food. What is it and why? If it's something you make please share the recipe.
My favorite food is pizza. My newest favorite pizza is the take and bake pizza from Papa Murphy's - Chicken, Bacon, Spinach, Artichoke Delight. This pizza is made on a thin crust with garlic white sauce and covered with spinach, grilled white meat chicken, bacon and chopped artichokes. Yum, yum! I tried my hand at making my own version of this pizza from scratch and it turned out really good.
I love to make homemade pizza, too, especially in the winter when I want to heat the house up with the oven and revel in the smell of rising dough. When I'm in a hurry and don't have time to make the dough from scratch I use a packaged dough mix that I buy at Wal-Mart - it costs less than a dollar here and the dough turns out really good. I bake my pizzas on professional pizza pans.
I worked at Peppino's Pizza in southwest Colorado Springs when I was in high school and my older brother was the manager of the restaurant. My parents then bought the restaurant and I worked there part-time while I was in college (along with a second part-time job). We made almost everything from scratch. We ordered pork butts and cut those up and ground them with spices to make the most delicious sausage I've ever tasted. We made dough from scratch in this enormous mixer. You would think that after working for years in a pizza joint I would hate pizza, but I still love a good pizza!
What's your favorite food?
