Well since I am not in Paris I will settle for home sweet home. My husband and I have started a cute little tradition in our home on Saturdays. We call it Pizza Saturday Even though I eat a vegan diet and he is pretty much a carnivore we separately create our own individual pizzas on Saturdays. He is usually keeping up on all his football teams and I am usually kicking around in the kitchen or taking a cat nap. Even so it’s a fun little thing we have started on Saturdays.
I got cranking this morning with the preparations for my pizza today because when it comes time to eat I’m always READY I sautéed yellow squash, broccoli, onions, green peppers and I then chopped up quite a few black olives ( I love black olives ).To top it off I shredded some vegan cheese.
Let me tell you I had coconut shrapnel all over me and my kitchen I am still finding pieces of that little sucker everywhere! I educated myself this time around by watching some helpful hints on you tube and I’m proud to say I won The beautiful coconut juice flowed and I was able to scoop out all the meat inside. I chopped it up into little bits and made a marinade of Braggs Liquid Amino , smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper,and maple syrup. I let it sit an soak up those juices for about 4 hours then when it came time to assemble my pizza I drained it and sautéed it until crispy. After I created my beautiful vegan pizza I spread those delightful little coconut “bacon” bits on top and it was so delicious. My belly was happy
Our home smelled of a fine italian restaurant and we snuggled up on the couch to watch t.v and enjoy our pizza creations. It was a great Pizza Saturday
