Pandemic Pizza: Part 39 of 2022

Submitted by Bethany on Mon, 10/31/2022 - 14:31

Compared to last week, it has been slow in the kitchen.  I am officially still on bed rest for the infection in my toe. So, I have tried to be more compliant this week.

Since we love tacos, why not make them a double! Matthew layered refried beans on a soft shell taco then wrapped it around a hard shell taco.

Wednesday in the Kitchen with Matthew: Double Decker Tacos with ground beef and green tomato salsa topped with cheddar, lettuce and taco sauce.

On Fridays, I am continuing to find regional styles & variations of pizza in the US. Buffalo (New York) is best known for wings, but they also have their own style of pizza.

Friday Pieday: Buffalo Style Pizza…a hybrid between thin and thick crust topped with a sweet tomato paste-based sauce, pepperoni and lots of mozzarella.

On Sunday we celebrated Beggars Night. Now you may ask, what is Beggars Night? The Des Moines metro has a unique tradition of trick or treating on October 30, rather than Halloween. This tradition began in 1938 and now other communities across the country do so as well.

Sunday’s Creation: A Ghostly Chicken Pizza…a pan crust topped with white garlic cream sauce, Parmesan, chicken and mozzarella.

See you in November…
