Quick and Easy

I don’t know if I can entirely blame being a new mom on my interest in quick and easy meals lately.  It might be the record breaking heat we’ve had here this summer.  Either way, it has been fun coming up with things Scott and I can make for dinner, when our hungers high, and our motivation low. 

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know we love pizza night at our house.  We make the dough from scratch and love coming up with topping combination that we both will enjoy.  As much as we love to make homemade pizza, it’s not going to happen when it’s 7:15 and we walk into the kitchen with the low motivation I mentioned above.  Enter Ten Minute Flatbread Pizza.

Utilizing Flat Out Wraps (or pita bread would work,) toppings of your choice, and the toaster oven this came together in 10 minutes (about 3-5 minutes of prep and 5 minutes in a 400 degree toaster oven.  Scott and I each topped our own flatbread with what we were craving.  I went with the simple pizza sauce, mozzarella, sliced tomato, capers and fresh basil.  It rocked my face off!   A few of these would make a great appetizer for a happy hour get together. 

We had our pizzas with a great weeknight wine, the Meridian Pinot Grigio.  A nice hint of citrus – grapefruit? and a mineral like finish, it was the perfect refreshing complement to our meal on this hot evening.
