But waiting way in the back of the freezer was a sad little cheese pizza. Frozen and flat. Well, I thought it was better than nothing so I started preheating the oven.
And then it hit me - that little pizza could be jazzed up a bit. I still have some fresh basil growing in my herb garden out back. And there was one lone tomato still ripening on my counter. And then I remembered the kalamata olives in the door of the fridge. Suddenly I was getting excited about that cheap cheese pizza.
While it cooked, I diced and chopped my add-ons. Once it was ready I covered my half of the pizza with them. Doesn't it look amazing? And it was. It was certainly better than something from a drive though window one more time. In fact, it was as good as going to a gourmet pizza shop. But there was no big bill, no tip to leave, and practically no wait. I felt like I was cheating.
And while the carnivore happily ate his half plain, I think if I had some time and a rested brain I could have come up with some special topping for him too. Like cooking a couple extra pieces of bacon at breakfast and then breaking them into pieces over the pizza at lunch would be nice.
What topping would you / do you add to your basic bland pizza to make it better? Let me know below.
