Pizza Night!


This past weekend we had another couple over for dinner. Since the primary goal was to relax on the patio with wine in hand, we decided to keep dinner relatively simple. Homemade pizzas and salad sounded like just the ticket this Easter eve.

After watching the sunset on the patio with a glass of viognier and various munchies, we went into the kitchen to quickly whip up these amazing pies.

The first one is topped with pizza sauce, fresh mozarella, spinach, and roasted red peppers. Mmmm...cheesy!


The second one was total experimentation. Homemade onion jam, arugula, and goat cheese. A few tidbits of procuitto were a tasty last minute addition. Mmm...sweet, salt and pepper.

Finally, John made a very traditional pepperoni, cheese and black olive pie. Nothing less than spectacular,we would choose this over take out anyday. Mmmm...salty!
To accompany the pizza, we enjoyed a delicious St. Francis Claret. A blend of cab and merlot with a touch of zinfandel out of Napa. Mmmm...smooth!
