Every Wednesday, my husband’s work orders pizza, and since he’s the last one to leave work most nights, he grabs all the leftovers and brings them home so they don’t get thrown out. Generally, this is a good deal for him because pizza is one of his favorite foods and now he gets it every week. At this point, I’m wondering if he regrets the decision to take home all of last week’s pizza because he’s eaten nothing but pizza for the last 5 days. Why? Because this weekend I was taking a much needed day off work and decided that gosh darn it, I wanted pizza. And not some work leftovers either. I wanted my own delicious cornmeal crust pizza with my own delicious sauce and a personalized array of my favorite toppings arranged exactly how I like them. (I was feeling a bit selfish – can you tell? ) I hadn’t made pizza in ages. It was time to shred some cheese and prep some toppings. In other words, it was pizza time.
