I don’t believe it myself………..what’s not to love about the iconic American food…….second next to burgers. Well, I’m married to that guy. On the rare times the hubby is out of town, I DO PIZZA…
It has been a long winter in MN……….but I’m happy to report spring is showing upand yes that comes in the form of a lot of deer poo and yellow grass. But that showing up is a good sign it, means it is time to celebrate. My favorite way to celebrate spring is with a wonderful #Lemondropmartini
Pucker and smile can you say #lemoncillo………. ok so I digress. This blog is supposed to be about #Pizza. As I mentioned before, my husband is not a fan…….and I LOVE Pizza…………Since it is a rare treat in my life I decided to take a frozen pizza
did you say Dijiorno .. And see if I could upscale it to a GREAT pizza. I did some research, read what others have done and this is what I came up with.
Frozen Pizza base
to this I started with more cheese!!! (cheese yum yum)
added a little YIPHEE YA ( in other words pepperoncini’s) and since I had no fresh garlic went with cut up scallions ……..
Since I love extra HEAT!!! Added some yummy red pepper flakes.
Now we bake!!!
HOLD THE OVEN!!! No not yet we forgot a step… what screams goodness besides garlic butter? NOTHING!!! So I tossed a tbsp of butter with a bunch of minced garlic into the nuculater ( aka Microwave) …………and brushed the crust with that!!! Yummo
Heated the oven to 400 made sure my 24 year old #pamperedchef pizza stone was ready.
In to the oven my #pepperonipepperoncinipizza went 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
The end result of the upscale frozen pizza was something to be cherished! YUM YUM . Let it rest about 5 minutes before slicing.
call in the troops, it’s pizza time
So in conclusion, this frozen pizza hack was a success and I’ll do it again. I found some of my inspiration for this at https://www.purewow.com/food/frozen-pizza-hacks .
I’m grateful spring has finally sprung and can get jiggy with smoked food! TGIF!
