Perfect Fall Pizza for 2; not normal yet

We eat with the seasons.

That applies to pizza, as well.

I love pizzeria pizza, with tomato sauce and sausage and pepperoni and peppers and mushrooms and anything else edible.

But when I make it at home, this is my preferred way: thinly sliced, ripe Roma tomatoes from my garden….. Which means I only make pizza in the fall when I have an abundance of tomatoes.

We eat a lot of pizza in the fall.

The puff pastry makes a light and flaky crust and the pizza is ready in no time!

I thought life would be starting to feel normal again

Not yet….

So I decided if life isn’t quite normal, at least it should be easy, both in the kitchen and on the blog.

I used to make my pizza crusts the proper way, starting with flour and water and yeast, kneading, letting it rise, etc….

Proper dough.

We loved it.

It made a pizza that was a little too much for two to eat, but it was so good we ate it all anyway… Then felt stuffed for hours.

I don’t remember when I decided to switch my crust to puff pastry, but now we love this more.

It’s light, flaky, we eat the whole thing and think maybe we could have had one more slice each.

That’s how one should feel after eating….. It takes awhile for the ‘fullness’ to set in.

Tomorrow we’re supposed to have sunshine after 3 days of gray, cold rain. Maybe then life will start to right itself.

  1. It’s going to take time for things to feel right again. Take the time, don’t rush things. One morning, you’ll wake up and things will feel almost normal again. It will come. In the meantime, pizza is a great comfort food and this one looks delicious. But I don’t see any of those ‘ugly’ tomatoes you said you had… 😉

  2. Tanna, pizza always helps…

    Nightsmusic, the Romas always look nice. They never split… Yeah, it’s going to take time.

    Kate, I’ve been there…. It gets tiring in a hurry.

    Zoomie, a very big loss – thanks
