I came home in my usual tizzy–hungry and tired and cranky. I was excited to be making white pizzas for dinner. They would have store bought pizza dough, but then I’d be adding ricotta, mozzarella, broccoli and mushrooms. Yum.
But not tonight… I had a roll of refrigerator pizza dough. When I popped open the tube and tried to roll it out, it got all muffed up. It twisted back onto itself and then it went from bad to worse. I tried to ball it up and then roll it out, but it wouldn’t roll out. It’s like there’s some weird chemical in there that prevents it from being like a normal, uncanned dough. Boy, was I mad.
Luckily, we had another roll in the fridge. I thought it was pizza dough, but it turned out it was a roll of french bread. I had an idea. I would cook the bread and then create little pizzas that way.
I put some green pesto on one and red pesto on the other. Then I added mushrooms, kalamata olives, and mozzarella. Pretty simple, but so tasty. A little salty with the olives and pesto combined, but good.
Derek was happy that I was fed. This little food crisis was averted and life in our house returned to normal 🙂 So glad I could concoct such a quick back-up plan!
What are your back-up concoctions? Anything good?
