So, I’m a little crazy.
But I kinda like to think I’m the sorta crazy that people can relate to, ya know? That I just say, do and write about the non-socially acceptable things most people keep locked up in their also crazy minds. That because I freely admit to my Medusa-haired, monkey-minded craziness, people tend like me (with the exception of my snooty 1st grade rival in Mrs. Wevley’s class, who ironically also went by the name of Holly), because they too would like to admit their own personal insanity to the world but unfortunately, have no blog to do so.
I freak out when I have nothing to do and freak out just as equally when I have too much to do (ahem, a jam-packed summer dominated by NINE weddings).
I complain even though I have nothing of real substance to complain about (see above statement).
I pretend I’m detail-oriented then buy all-you-can-eat-and-drink soda tickets to the local minor league baseball game instead of all-you-can-eat-and-drink beer tickets and eat dinner at home, forgetting it’s all you can eat. #fail
I post hideous pictures of me even though they are awkwardly embarrassing.
I drink too much beer, go out to eat too often and regularly fall asleep on my couch at 8:30pm in my work clothes + unbrushed teeth, waking up the next morning wondering why my mascara has encrusted my eyes temporarily shut.
And I make Peanut Butter + Mozzarella Pizza for breakfast in 90 degree heat with no air conditioning in my small, single girl apartment.
Peanut Butter + Mozzarella Pizza
4-Ingredient Pizza Dough
1/2 T honey
1 T olive oil
1 T minced garlic
1/2 cup unsalted peanut butter*
1/2 medium vidalia onion, finely diced
1 t salt*
1/2 t nutmeg
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
*if using salted peanut butter, omit the salt in this recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Make 4-Ingredient Pizza Dough according to instructions, adding 1/2 T of honey to the mixture. Roll out dough with an old wine bottle, drizzle with olive oil and spread with minced garlic. Place on a baking sheet, and parbake in the oven for 15 minutes until crust is lightly browned.
When the pizza dough is finished parbaking, spread the peanut butter equally over the crust with a spatula. Sprinkle with diced onion and spices, and top with mozzarella cheese.
Bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.
Slice, eat + devour!
Makes 8 large slices (equal to 4 servings)
Inspired by Madeline, Boots + my’s meal in New Glarus, this pizza seems a bit crazy at first but is unexpectedly delicious. Mixed with diced onion + cheese, the peanut butter tastes more like a peanut sauce and melts in your mouth with a delectably savory bite. Of course, it tastes best washed down with a cold beer.
Even if this unique homemade pizza did cause the temperature in my apartment to soar an additional five degrees (87 -> 92, for the record), I am pretty sure my crazy self is okay with it.
Even better, my crazy self won’t even complain about it.
And my crazy self will even stop referring to myself as “my crazy self.”
