Every now and then my department goes out for lunch and this time we were going for pizza! Yum!
In spite of all the ingredients that make up a pizza, I still see pizza more as a snack than a “real” meal, but that’s in the eye of the beholder. I don’t eat it very often, and rarely more than two slices, but it’s one of my favorite “snacks”. I decided to “make” my own pizza by selecting the toppings I like, in stead of picking one of the menu. This is nice for the creative people out there: you can dress up your pizza to the mood-of-the-day and you never have to eat the same pizza twice!
Mushrooms, pineapple and ham sounded yummy and I figured it wouldn’t be too bad to have one slice with the house salad (trying to keep a healthy balance). It ended up being a great choice. The house salad tasted as good as it looked, with thick slices or tomatoes, strips of mozarella cheese and lots of olives. Quite different from the traditional house salad. The pizza, similar to Hawaiian pizza, was excellent too and I devoured the entire slice, crust and all! I even took pictures with my camera phone (no, no new camera yet after my mishap), which will have to do until I get a new camera. Now … if I can only figure out how to move the pictures from the phone to a computer, my world would be a little bit more complete. After reviewing the phone menus over and over again, I have yet to figure it out. Someone please explain to me: What’s the point of having a camera phone if I can’t even email the pictures to myself? Text message yes, but forget emailing! Well that will teach me to get “just” any phone without researching the features! This is sheer punishment for not being careful enough with my camera and means that I can’t get too excited about my food until I have a camera to shoot pictures again…. Oh well, I can’t take pictures but I can still cook!
I used to make my own pizza in Suriname and this one didn’t look too complicated so I wrote the recipes for my version of Mushroom-Pineapple-Ham pizza and Fellini’s house salad. Of course, the easiest thing to do would be to visit Fellini’s and have them cook it for you! 🙂
Either way, buon appetito!
