For some reason pizza seems like summer food to me - it's what we ordered when it was too hot to cook. Now, I usually make my own pizza, but it's still good summer food. I can make it on the grill if it's too hot in the house.
And, it's good cold. It's like a whole different food once it has chilled.
So, when my friend Stephanie from the blog Recipe Renovator dreamed up a blog hop to promote her Kickstarter campaign to get her book Golden Angels for eBook to print, the second thing I thought of (after actual dogs) was pizza.
I used to be a pizza purist. If a pizza didn't resemble the pizza of my youth, with toppings that were normal back in the stone age when I first ate pizza (from a place we only knew as "the pizzeria" - it had no name anywhere, and its blinking neon sign said, generically, "Pizza.") then I wasn't all that interested.
And then something changed. My horizons broadened.
I still like my traditional pizza toppings, but I'm more willing to have some fun with toppings, particularly when I'm making a few different pizzas. That way I can have my traditional pizza and dabble in unusual ones, too.
This time, I decided to make a pizza with breakfast-friendly ingredients.
Deli ham, cut in pieces
Onion and green pepper, cooked then drizzled with maple syrup
Fresh tomato, sliced
Potato, cooked, peeled and sliced
Sounds good, right?
I just drizzled the oil on the crust - just a little bit - then added the toppings - obviously you can use as much or as little as you like. And then they whole shebang went into a super-hot oven until the cheese was happily bubbling.
And that was it. Hot, warm, or cold. Dinner or breakfast.
About Golden Angels
And, for the food lovers, there's a recipe for each of the 13 chapters of the book.
Stephanie raised her initial funding goal in the first week - now she's hoping to raise enough to print more books than originally planned, and to o a book tour as well.
With Kickstarter, you don't need to pledge a lot - even $5 will help bring a project closer to its goal.
