So, my friends.. here I sit, ass planted firmly on my couch..typing, blogging for god's sake! Ok, ok I am a little over excited but how can I not be? I am on my new laptop.. also new in the fact that I have only ever sat at desks to work on my computer and now I am totally mobile people, watch out. Anywho, on to bigger and yummier things.. Boy and I kind of have this Friday night tradition of eating pizza, watching movies - original, I know. Well, tonight it was - instead of ordering from... blank blank..(yes, I am ashamed..) I decided to make my own, it's not the first time but definitely a first on the style if you will..
I was not at all in the mood for tomato based pizza and I don't do "white pizza" - the thought of alrfredo type sauces makes me want to choke myself. I started out by poaching chicken in white wine and garlic, first a high boil and then I let it soak in its glorious sauvignon blanc bath.. while that was going on I picked fresh rosemary and basil from my herb garden and added it to about two tablespoons cream cheese - which is such a good addition to pizza if you want to give it that richness without going overboard - spread the cream cheese (also known as boursin as corrected by the onlooking chef.) onto your cooked crust prior to any other toppings going on.
I cooked my mushrooms and red onions in garlic, olive oil and liquid hickory smoke.. put it all together and topped off with mozz & parm/romano mix.. now, folks.. it was AMAZING.. I don't think I will ever order pizza from blank blank again unless I am feeling particularly lazy..
