Pizza Pizza!

When Thatdad first died, we ate a lot of pizza. Pizza has always been one of Thatmom's favorite foods and we hardly ever ate it because it wasn't great for Thatdad's heart. After his death, I immediately tried to bring it back into rotation as a source of comfort for Thatmom, and she readily accepted. So much so, that finally Thatboy put his foot down and demanded we eat SOMETHING other than pizza.

So we reigned in our pizza eating and it's been ages since Thatboy has had pizza. Long enough where I thought I could sneak some back in.

I call this our "kitchen sink" pizza because it has all of our favorite things on it. For Thatboy it means it has pepperoni and garlic. For me, it has artichoke hearts, fresh basil, and roasted red peppers. For both of us - lots of cheese!!!! (And for anyone keeping track, I'm now making my mozzarella with 1% milk and it is just as delicious)
