Changing the lineup

If you follow blog you know that I rarely change the menu plan once I make it although I do sometimes rotate the nights around.  We’re moving the shrimp fried rice to tomorrow night and tonight is the pizza.  This is also a good make ahead topping for nights when things are a little crazy and if you keep bacon, mozzarella cheese and pizza crusts in your freezer (as we do) can be thrown together with on hand ingredients (a good recipe to have up your sleeve).

Pizza Amatriciana

  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic (I was out of garlic so substituted shallots) chopped
  • 3 TB red wine
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pizza crust

Cook bacon until crisp and drain on paper towels.  Discard bacon grease reserving about 1 TB.  Cook chopped onion (and garlic or shallot) in bacon grease until golden, about 10 minutes.  Add wine and stir in.  Add red pepper and tomatoes and bring to a boil.  Cook until thickened, about 10 minutes.

Top pizza crust with topping and crumble reserved bacon on top.  Top with mozzarella cheese and bake.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
