Barbecued Chicken Pizza & Foolproof Poached Chicken Breasts

I’m still on my mini pizza kick. What better little obsession is there to have, really? I guess there’s always fitness. And diligent flossing. Or never skipping a healthy breakfast. All good and useful routines to develop and embrace, and each one is less expensive than the hardcore proclivities like designer shoe shopping, fancy French truffles or Beluga caviar. Pizza and fitness. They go hand in hand.

Mushroom Flatbread Pizza with Gruyere and Basil

Flatbread pizza recipes have consumed me lately and as a consequence, I’ve consumed a lot of flatbread pizzas. I recently discovered lavash (I mean, I didn’t personally discover it. I found out about it is what I should’ve said) and I’ve been using it like crazy when it comes to entertaining and/or feeding friends. I’ve made about five different versions of these nifty little pizzas in the past few weeks and they’ve all gone over so well, I thought I’d share one of my favorites with you today.

Sausage, Pepper, & Onion Pizza

One of my pumpkins was sick on the couch all day yesterday. She was pretty pitiful, so I thought that I should hang out on the couch as well. She needed company, and I needed to catch up on my Spongebob and Hannah Montana. We both needed some downtime to perfect our Doodle Jump moves, which I consider to be an important life skill. So it was a win-win.

White Pizza

I’m considering a pizza bar for halftime dining on Sunday. Here’s what I’m picturing: my kitchen table set with a stack of pre-made crusts and a wide selection of toppings; browned Italian sausage, sliced pepperoni, bowls of sauce and cheese, and lots of gorgeous veggies (green and yellow peppers, naturally!). Guests can all design their own quarter (or third, or half) – you get the idea. I’ll ask guests to bring other essential menu items (green salads, trays of bars), and voila – I’ve arrived at the perfect solution to feeding a pack of hungry Packer fans.

My Favorite French Bread Pizza

You’d think it was Italian Pride week, wouldn’t you – for all of the pasta and red sauce dishes I’ve made this week? I promise, this is the end of them. But once again, the sale ad made me do it. Whenever delicious, crunchy baguettes and ooey, gooey cheese go on sale, I feel compelled to make these French bread pizzas for the DamFam. We’re crazy for ‘em – No Thank You Boy is even a fan! I like them because they’re a cinch to make! And they don’t come packaged in a red box with a name that rhymes with ‘gophers’!

Recipes From Crisse

I just love our Sendik’s customers. They are such a source of inspiration for demo’s and recipes. Crisse Merkel of Germantown passed along these recipes. I’ve made all three and they are great! Perfect for summer grilling and entertaining. Thanks Crisse!
