I almost called this post “Building a Better Pizza” but then I decided that it was a douchey title.
So I’m telling you now. Just so you know that I spared you. Heck of a humanitarian I am.
Anyway, I ate pizza for dinner again tonight. Ever since I discovered that naan makes an excellent pizza crust, I’ve been having pizza a lot. To be fair, I did see this coming. And I’m not saying that I regret it.
This time around, I gave my pizza a disguise.
Looks like a salad, doesn’t it?
Surprise! No! It’s a pizza!
Seeing as the amount of naan in my life these days is categorically excessive, I figured it was probably a good idea to lighten and balance things a bit.
One of my favorite things to order there is their pancetta pizza, which has cheese and pancetta (duh) and oven-roasted tomatoes and a big topping of fresh arugula.
Now, I realize the shortcomings of my own kitchen- namely that I haven’t installed a wood-fired pizza oven- but I figured I’d take a page out of their book anyway.
Trader Joe’s Kale and Spinach Greek Yogurt dip.
Incidentally, you should pick up a tub of that stuff. It’s amazing. And you could probably get away with eating the entire thing in one sitting since it’s made with Greek yogurt and all.
A leeetle beeet of cheese.
And topped with arugula.
Fluffy bread, a modest sprinkle of cheese, and plenty of fresh greens.
Oh, and delicious, too.
I now see nothing wrong with eating pizza every day from here on out.
