Homemade Pizza!

Well, mostly, lol!

My hubby had the wonderful idea of making pizza for dinner. We were going to the store to buy root beer and ice cream to celebrate the summer solstice tonight, and we decided to pick up some ground beef, chicken, tiny shrimp, crumbled bacon, broccoli, mushrooms, and a can of organic tomato sauce.

Once home, I browned the ground beef, adding seasoned salt as it cooked. As I did that, hubby shredded one chicken breast. Then I removed the beef, and added the chicken and shrimp to the leftover grease, plus a little more seasoning. Once the chicken and shrimp was done, I set it aside, and used the juice/grease to fry up the broccoli and mushrooms.

Meanwhile, I put a stick of butter into a small pan, added some cream, shredded cheese, and salt, onion and garlic powder. I let that meld for a bit on medium low heat until it was alfredo sauce, MMM!

Once all of the ingredients were cooked, I assembled the pizzas. I took an organic whole wheat wrap - the large, about 12' size - I spread some tomato sauce on it, the ground beef, and crumbled bacon. Then I covered it with shredded cheese. I tossed that in my toaster oven for 10 minutes (on the toast/high setting). Meanwhile, the second pizza I assembled had tomato sauce, beef, onions, chicken, shrimp, and a little bit of mushrooms on it, covered with cheese. I set the first pizza aside to cool, put the second in the toaster oven, and started assembling the third pizza.

I really REALLY wish I had a porous and absorbent crust rather than a wrap for the 3rd pizza. I put chicken, shrimp, onions, broccoli, and mushrooms on it, and covered it with the alfredo sauce and cheese. This pizza turned out on the soggy but still pretty darn tasty side.

The last pizza was was pretty much everything we had! Tomato sauce, beef, chicken, shrimp, bacon, onions, broccoli, mushrooms, alfredo sauce, cheese... yep, everything! Because of the alfredo sauce, it turned out a little soggy too, but not as bad as the third pizza.

My favorite pizza was the second because it turned out perfect. Tasty, crispy crust, filling, mmm... I know I made way more than we can eat tonight, but I LOVE left over pizza for breakfast, so guess what I'm eating tomorrow, hee hee hee!

Now for the root beer floats! I used Hansen's real sugar root beer, and organic vanilla ice cream. Tasty!

Have a happy Summer Solstice everyone!
