So it was quite the busy weekend around our house :) Not only did Chris and I get hitched, but I turned 40 on Sunday! Feels strange to actually say that out loud, but I'm not freaked out about it at all. To me, age is nothing but a number... my number gets a little higher each year... but so does yours :) I'll talk more about the wedding and even show you some pictures in a post next week (or whenever I get the actual pictures) - so hang tight and you'll be a part of our special weekend soon enough!
As for this pizza.. it was just one of those things I threw together. There was no real recipe, I just had some ground pork and veggies I needed to use up and so... this was born. And you know what, it turned out pretty darn good if I do say so myself!!!
Seasoned Ground Pork and Veggie Pizza
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
1/4 lbs ground pork
1-2 Tablespoons homemade taco seasoning (depending on taste)
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 zucchini, chopped
1/4 sweet onion, chopped
1 Mama Mia's thin pizza crust (or 1 ball of homemade pizza dough)
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
a skillet, over medium heat, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and the sweet
onion. Cook 5 minutes and add the pork. Cook another 5-8 minutes or
until the pork is no longer pink. Add the taco seasoning, a little at a
time, until you reach the desired flavor, stirring to combine. Add the
pepper and zucchini and cook another 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
grill to 400 degrees. Brush olive oil over both sides of the crust and
place on grill. Grill for 4 minutes and carefully remove. Flip the
crust over and spread the sauce over the cooked side of the crust. Add
the pork and veggies and top with cheese. Place back on the grill and
continue to grill for another 4 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
(you might have to move the pizza to indirect heat to make sure the
crust does not burn) Carefully remove from grill and slice. Serve and
