Pizza and Saturday night go together like college football and beer. (Actually, all four of those things go together pretty well.) That is, if you like watching football, which, I’m sorry to say – I do not. My Texas bred family is appalled, but I just can’t help it. I try to like it. I really try, but I can’t. To be honest, the same thing applies to beer.

So, I’ll stick with pizza. Food is something I can get excited about.


(I can also get excited about these monkeys, but for now, let’s stick to the pizza)


I usually use this crust, but I switched it to this crust just to see if I liked it. I did like it. But I like my usual crust better. Meeker and I are crispy crust people.


  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 T garlic powder
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t Italian seasoning
  • 1 T balsamic vinegar
  • salt to taste


  • spinach (blanched)
  • artichoke hearts (quartered, from a can)
  • cherry tomatoes (sliced)
  • mushrooms (sliced)
  • olives (sliced)
  • mozzarella cheese


Yes, I like pizza on Saturday night. College football and beer are optional.
