We were totally caught off guard with Sunday's time change. I don't recall getting any warnings about falling back an hour this year. Maybe we're just not watching enough TV. An easy cure.
Anyway, time was important this morning because I decided to make homemade pizzas for our lunches and I needed to wake up about a half-hour early. Jamie set the automatic timer on the oven to turn on at 5:30. Only thing is, he forgot to change the clock on the stove. So at 4:30 AM we're up trying to figure out what that smell is.
That smell is . . . an oven that needs to be cleaned. But I digress.
Dough is so simple to make I decided to make it from scratch this time, which I did before I went to bed so it would be ready to roll out, load up, and bake. I can't eat processed tomatoes anymore, so Jamie has been perfecting his tomato skills. He roasted some cherry tomatoes--added salt, pepper, garlic, olive oil, thyme, and oregano--to create a homemade sauce for our pizzas. After adding some fresh chopped tomatoes, pepperoni and mozzarella this morning, I threw them in a 500°F oven and baked them for 8 minutes and voila!
They are delicious. If I do say so myself.
I know people will think I'm crazy for waking up early to make pizza. But it's really quite easy so please don't be intimidated if you want to give it a try . . . whatever time you make it!
Also included in the bento: Capri Sun Roaring Waters, grapes, orange slices, strawberry, cucumber, celery, and carrot sticks with Ranch dip and pineapple dump cake.
