Preferred Pizzas

There has been many different “ice breaker” sessions I’ve been in where they question to answer is: what’s your favorite food?

I have a really hard time answering that question, for some reason.

But recently, I’ve realized it must be pizza.

Simple naan bread brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with leftover roasted brussels sprouts and fresh arugula, dolloped with brie or other soft cheese, fig spread, and prosciutto. Baked just until the cheese melted a bit and everything warmed through. 5-10 minutes at 350.

And that would make sense because at least once a week it’s on my family’s meal plan. Recently, it’s been on even more often because – of the times we are in and – the comfort that this food/meal provides to us.

Besides the fact that it tastes good – it’s crunchy or chewy depending on your crust-style, cheesey (& fatty which our tongue likes for the mouth-feel) –

it’s also versatile- it can be colorful with toppings or simple!

but the end-all-be-all is that it tastes good!

flashback to one of my fave flatbread recipes: pesto, asparagus and shrimp flatbread-style pizza

You can order it from delicious dives, pop one in the oven from your freezer, or make your own semi-homemade version or one completely from scratch.

I find the foods we go to most are not only delicious and envoke some sort of positive emotions or memories, but they are also easy and versatile.

Many mistakenly think that pizza can’t be good for you. And I’m here time and time again to tell you that all foods are good for you!

Sometimes we add a salad or a roasted veggie to our pizza nights. Other times, due to lack of perceived time, mental or physical energy, we skip it and just do with what feels best in the moment. That savings in time & energy may mean we don’t get in our needed veggies at that meal, and that’s alright, too!

our favorite go-to for frozen pizza. Everyone likes them – and it adds a bit of veggies for the little one’s that are learning to like other foods and flavors =)

Do you have a go-to pizza? Is your favorite food, too? I’d love to hear!

Stay safe, stay well, and stay connected!
