Family pizza nights have become a fun way for our family to relax on a Sunday evening before the hectic week starts back up again. It’s all about surrounding yourself with good company and good food that bring to light all the blessings in life you may be taking for granted. Last week, instead of ordering a pizza or grabbing a pre-made one from the store, my family and I decided to whip out an older recipe of mine (chicken & garden pizza) to make our own pizza.
Pizza making is one of my favorite things to do because it’s always a crowd pleaser when it finally comes out of the oven. I get to be creative in choosing the ingredients that go on top, but I also get to be hands-on when it comes to rolling out the dough and rolling up the crust. To be honest, i’ve made my fair share amount of pizzas in the past and the best part is- they get better every time you make them. Practice makes your pizza perfect so don’t get discouraged if your dough doesn’t come out perfectly circular or the crust is not perfectly golden- it will however taste fresher than any pizza you’ve had that comes in a box.
The combination of Pear, Prosciutto, and Gorgonzola was influenced by a pizza dinner Justin and I had on a date night before we got married. Back when we were dating, I used to visit him on the weekends and we would go out to a pizza parlor in Boerne, TX. It was a relaxing place, most of the seating was outside and the entire theme revolved around large family gatherings friendly enough to bring the children and dogs. Their pizzas had fresh ingredients, exotic toppings, and wild names but I was always inspired to make them at home.
To me, Sundays should be gathered around your family. It makes for a wonderful time in the kitchen, cooking up something fresh and fun for everybody you’re thankful for. Sundays are meant to be taken a bit slower, holding onto the last few hours of cohesiveness before we all split our ways for the work week ahead. Staying focused on what truly matters, the friends and family who support you in this crazy life.
