Last night, Farmer H and I had pizza for supper. Don't act so surprised! You know that's the other food group around the Mansion. Woman does not live on gas station chicken alone!
This pizza was homemade. Well. Kind of homemade. If you count a prepared crust bought in a 3-pack from The Devil's Playground, topped with assorted frozen, canned, and processed foods, as homemade. But for the Mansion, it was homemade.
Farmer H is a pepperoni fiend. I can't stand the stuff myself. It gives me heartburn. In fact, during the summer, when The Pony was here, we would sometimes have DiGiorno's pizza for lunch. I bought the Supreme, and picked the peppers and other stuff off half of it for The Pony, right down to the cheese, because that's all he likes. Sometimes I could sneakily leave a couple sausage pellets on there so he got more protein, and while he noticed it like a pea-feeling princess, he choked it down. I took the pepperoni off the whole pizza, and stuck it in the freezer for sweetening up Farmer H's frozen pizza in the future.
Yeah. Last night, I used that pepperoni on Farmer H's homemade pizza. It was still good! I had bought some sliced pepperoni for that purpose, but I figured I could use up the saved stash first. He also wanted mushrooms (half a drained can from Save A Lot) and onion (a quarter of a small diced white one--more for me). The sauce was a few spoonfuls from a jar of Save A Lot pizza sauce. It's way better than The Devil's pizza sauce. I even use it for pasta sometimes. The only thing better (around THIS Mansion) is Chef Boyardee canned pizza sauce.
I wanted my pizza to be BBQ Chicken. So I put down some Save A Lot (I really need to get monetized since I promote them so much) Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce on my crust. Then some Tyson Pulled Chicken that I keep in the freezer in individual servings (my serving being about 1/5 of the bag, which comes to 160 calories in case anybody is interested). Next I added my diced onion. And I topped both our pizzas with some shredded mozzarella and garlic salt. (By my calculations, this whole mini pizza had around 600-700 calories. I didn't measure the cheese precisely.)
These were the thin crust version, and baked for 7-10 minutes. I forgot to get a a picture of Farmer H's pepperoni, which was most likely in its final bite, sliding down his esophagus, when I snapped a photo of mine.
Not much to look at. But it was better than a Big Salad, a Supreme Flounder, and a Mackinaw Peach, all rolled into one.
