And the pizza continues! Last night after I finished making and devouring my cheese pizza, I prepared lunch for today. On the menu: Chilly Garden Pizza. The recipe technically asks for a prebaked thin Italian pizza crust, but I obviously wanted to make the crust myself, so that's what I did! Second time around, this Bisquick + water combo is AWESOME! To start, I baked the crust and let it cool.
I was out of cucumber, but I had some bell pepper on hand, so I made a little switch.
here. It's definitely one of my favorite appetizers to share with her when I visit!
The chilly garden pizza turned out great, but it feels like more of an appetizer than a main meal. I definitely think I'll make this again - but probably to take to a party as a snack or something, not as a main dish.
Tonight for dinner, I got to work with a new ingredient: POLENTA! I didn't really know what polenta WAS before today. For those of you who also don't know, polenta is ground cornmeal that has been boiled in water. The recipe started with me chopping up THREE medium sized onions. However, after chopping two and seeing how much onion I had, I decided my onions must have been "large" and put my third onion back in my drawer.
