Who all out there has Saturday night for their designated pizza night? If you do, you're awesome. Almost as awesome as pizza.
I love pizza.
That being said, I like Stromboli just about as much. Just because it's a little easier to eat on the go. Maybe it's just me, but that's what I think.
But my problem is...Stromboli takes forEVER to bake. Seriously. I can't ever get it done totally. Yeah. That's my own personal battle that you don't need to know about. But now that you do...you may as well know that I didn't make that up. I just never can seem to get it done...without burning the bottom of it or something.
In my life, it's a little crazy. I often don't have a lot of time to prepare meals... So everything I make generally takes me 30 minutes or less.
Last night was no different. I was gone all day...and then all of the sudden my Marlin was gonna be home sooner than I thought and then we needed to be somewhere at 7:00. Do you ever have those moments where you look at your cupboards and frig full of ingredients and you have absolutely no idea how you're ever going to be able to figure out what to make? I do it all the time. Some days I'm sure I've run out of ideas and we'll slowly just starve. It's like writers block...but it's food block instead...and the stakes are higher.
So as I was staring at all the ingredients I had surrounding me, I started mentally going through the different things I could make. But seriously. Have you ever tried to figure out something to make, when you're hungry for something else? Yeah. I wanted pizza. I always want pizza. So that's nothing new. But I really wanted pizza. I threw the idea out because it'd be too messy for on the go. Next idea. Stromboli. No. Not a good idea. It's take forever to get done. But I for some reason started tossing together some pizza dough and next thing I new I had rolled it out and had things all set up to make Stromboli. But then I came to my sense. Duh, it's never worked before...now is not the time to try it again. There has to be food ready to go when he walks through that door.
Then it hit me.
This is what I came up with.
It was brilliant. It was genius. It was fast. It was easy...it was delicious.
There ya have it! These would also work well for appetizers...like if you made miniature ones. I think they'd be so cute! I'm totally going to do that next time. :)
