Pizza Salad

There are many kinds of pizza: delivery, take and bake, frozen or homemade. It doesn't matter what kind, it is delicious. One quote that holds true, though I am not sure who said it, is "sex is like pizza, even when it is bad it is still good." Here is the latest pizza at our house. We used Flatout Multi-grain flat bread as the crust. After a couple of tries we found that 5 minutes in the oven on 350 before building the pizza is just right for a crispy pizza. We started with sauce, added CRP, then some mozzarella, then turkey pepperoni(trying to watch the calories and they taste good), diced onions and peppers, and jalapenoes. Topped with cheese and back in the oven. Then one on the right is Byrd's, she loves cheese.

On to the salad. Sometimes simple is the key to a great salad. While in college a great friend of mine introduced me to the best simple salad. Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and Ken's Steakhouse Olive Oil Vinaigrette. Great and simple. I hate to admit it but it has been over 10 years now and it is still a great combination. I do add some onions and with pizza I mix a little blue cheese dressing with the vinaigrette. This has a lot to do with the amount of CRP that I put on top of the pizza. This is called Pizza Salad and not pizza and salad because I like a bite of the cold salad on top of every bite of pizza.
This was a great topping combination, and that's the great thing about pizza, the combinations are endless.

  1. Yummy! Tell Byrd to email me some pizza! I've heard some of my friends talking about using the flat outs for pizza crust. Interesting bro.....
