Hey, Everybody! I'm doing a little midday well, maybe not midday coz it's 3 o’clock but doing a live video and I'm making some pizza, so I thought I would just test out my new tripod that I have so if you see one of the legs in the video that's what's going on but right now I'm having what my mom likes to call a late lunch because I've been working all day and haven't had a stop- haven't had a chance to stop and make something. So, I'm gonna be making some pizza!
And wait a little bit more for a couple of people to get on and I'll start chopping the vegetables as well.
Oh, wait. So..., got some tomatoes and onions. I try to use things that I already have on hand which I always have tomatoes and onions. I always have olives, banana, peppers always a good one to have as well for salads and pizzas and just a pan down a little bit what I'm using.. Ooops! well just adjust this, okay! So, what I'm using is some Stonefire Naan Bread or Naan and it's actually an Indian bread but you can find it at Kroger or most of the major stores it's not the healthiest however you can always substitute for cauliflower crust or whole wheat crust things like that but I'm using what I have on hand. So what I did is just took it out of the package to store it in a freezer and just sprinkle a little water on top and then what I'm going to do next is add my sauces so I'm just using regular tomato sauce with a mix of pesto so this is one of my favorite pestos that I like to use, Classic. You can make your own pesto but like I said just doing this very quickly, don't have a lot of time. I sprinkle some. I'm gonna do a mix of tomato sauce and pesto and if you can hear some ticking in the background that is from my toaster oven. I love making pizza in the toaster oven it's very quick, very easy. If you have kids, it's a great way to get them kind of excited about what they're about to eat because they can kind of see as it's going along and it doesn't take a long time to prepare so I'm doing a mix of pasta sauce and pesto and then I'm just gonna add my ingredients on top.
So like, I said, I always have tomatoes on hand. And, then banana peppers, another one of my favorites. They are great for salads, pizza.... Pretty much talks about sandwiches as well those are a good option and the pizza I'm making now doesn't have a name but it is gonna be kind of Greek inspired and it's pretty easy to whip up however, you can always use whatever you have on hand. Whatever ingredients, bell peppers are great I happen to don't have any right now. If, you have spinach that's a good option as well pretty much any fruits or vegetables you have will make a good pizza and some of well I've been doing some research I'm finding that a lot of parents have issues with getting their kids to eat eat fruits and vegetables or not fruits I'm sorry getting their kids to eat vegetables and so this is a great way because at the end you're probably gonna smother it with cheese and they might not easily, able to see it.
So next we do some olives and these are kalamata olives you can use any kind of olives that you have but for mine I'm doing kind of a Greek-inspired pizza. And on the bottom, if you're just joined us I have pesto and then just, Pasta Sauce. I think I might want to add some more sauce. So another good addition is garlic I like to use garlic that's already chopped up because it saves time and energy just sprinkle it and yeah got some onions and I love for an onion we have a slightly different taste than yellow onions but you can always use either gonna add some artichokes which I love and these add a slightly different flavor which is nice and just crumble and these I believe are actually soaked in olive oil, so they're marinated very nice and the last step which I forgot is the cheese so I'm gonna go get that real quick one moment. So, I was gonna use it but I just open the container and it's spilled in my fridge so I'm gonna stick with it and if you are vegan or vegetarian there's lots of cheese options that are out there or if you're lactose intolerant and cheese is not your friend. There is vegan cheese or feta cheese lots of options nowadays. And, I'm not a huge cheese person so I'm not gonna cover this entirely but if you are of course you want to cover it so that you can really see the ingredients.
So normally if I'd be doing a good pizza I would put a little photo on it but for now apparently that was not in the cards for me so what I'm gonna do is pop this in the toaster oven for about five to ten minutes I'll kind of watch it into other cheese melts and kind of check the crust so hopefully this has been helpful to you maybe you'll be inspired to make your own pizza. See you guys, later!
