For a quick recap- it was the battery. whew! Replaced with the help up my husband and we are up and running.
What’s more perfect than starting your weekend off with a pizza? Well, maybe a beer to go with it. Or maybe a nice large check to pay off my student loans so I can buy a new car. Ok got a little off track there. Too much wishful thinking.
So, maybe I’ll just stick with the pizza, beer and an amazing husband who made it.
True story. A tired gal stumbles in the door from work to the smell of freshly baked dough in the oven. A smiley handsome man gives her a kiss, and says “Hi sweetie I baked you a pizza.”
Smiley handsome man pulls the pizza out of the oven with inquisitive eyes, and says what do you think?
“I put meat on my side, but your side has zucchini.” Tough question.
Tired girl smiles, and thinks the real questions are how did she get so dang lucky? And did you actually use Betty Crocker’s Cookbook (published in the 1970’s)??? Awesome!!

In terms of nutrition and health, this meal is a little heavier than we typically eat, but I will explain that it’s actually pretty good for you.Way better than getting pizza from a restaurant. You can control how heavy or healthy you want it by adding or cutting back on the cheese and oil, adding more veggies or making the dough thin or thick. So in the end it’s actually a balanced ratio of whole wheat carbs, lean protein (with low fat cheese and turkey sausage), healthy fats (if you use olive oil) and veggies. Not too bad for pizza!
