You guys are bacon prodigies! You gave me sooo many great ideas that it’s going to be darn near impossible to narrow it down to just a few bacon-laced recipes to take to the party this weekend. Either way, I am sure to be the hit of every potluck I attend from now until 2020, with all the different bacon dishes I’ll be bringing. PS Googling the word “bacon” yields some awfully strange image results… You’ve been warned!
In the polar opposite direction, I made a pizza tonight that I am literally going cuckoo over: Thai Tofu Pizza!
I can’t even describe to you how freaking delicious this pizza is – I gobbled my pieces down! Don’t worry, it was lady-like gobbling. Natch.
I started with a Boboli 12″ pre-made pizza crust.
I had wanted to get the whole wheat crust, but my store didn’t carry that variety. It’s ok – white bread every once in a while is no biggie, especially when it’s for some good ‘za!
I placed my pizza crust on a round pizza pan that I snagged from my parents house (thanks Mom & Dad) but you could just put it straight onto the oven rack.
I slathered on some Thai Peanut Sauce that I made from soy sauce, peanut butter, rice vinegar – the works.
On goes some mozzarella cheese,
And crumbled tofu that I sautéed in some of the peanut sauce.
Next is some chopped broccoli,
And green onions.
Bake in a piping hot oven,
And top with chopped peanuts, mango and cilantro!
Seriously, I know I say this a lot but, O.M.G.!
I want to eat this pizza all day, every day, 24/7, 365!
When Ben and I first got married, I made two things a lot – I mean a. lot.
2. Noodle dishes in peanut sauce
We both got over chicken pretty fast (which is why I don’t make “just chicken” very often,) but while he also moved on from peanut sauce type dishes – my love remained intact.
Fellow peanut sauce lovers – you will DEVOUR this! It’s salty, smooth and so flavorful. Plus the crumbled & sautéed tofu adds even more of the far-East flavor!
The sweet, tropical punch from the mango and zip from the cilantro is just fantastic too. Ooo – and I’m kind of glad that I got the original crust. It was prefectly chewy. I highly recommend it!
I am holding myself back from eating way too much of this pizza. All things in moderation! Ok, maybe one more piece.
I’m entering this pizza in a contest, so I can’t share the full recipe yet. I’ll be certain to make it again after the contest is closed so I can share the deets with you guys, cause you’ve got to give it a try!
Tonight I am tackling my inbox. I have so many emails to return – I’m so bad at responding right away! What about you?
Have a good one – tomorrow’s Thursday! Just, FYI!
