Meet my meat pizza (and other things)
I hope you had a restful weekend.
I was just speaking with a friend earlier today and she commented about how this weekend was forced relaxation in a way. It absolutely is, and I love that!
I worked much of this weekend because I have a few stories coming up in the next few days, but starting today, I’m in cooking mode. So this is what we’re making for dinner tonight. It’s a meat pizza (and totally kosher because it’s dairy free!)
Make or buy pizza dough (for those who follow me on Instagram, I’ve shared my pizza dough recipe in the past.)
Take a pound of ground meat - ours is a half mix of chicken/beef, but all beef, or all turkey, or all chicken, whatever pleases you is good.
Flatten and brown the meat
Drain out fat from meat
Return meat to pan, add one can crushed tomatoes, garlic, onion, and Italian seasoning
Let simmer for a half hour then add meat/sauce mixture to dough.
7. Cook on 500 for 30 minutes.
Tomorrow, there’ll be tons of cooking going on. For the first Rosh Hashonah dinner, I’m making turkey, and also my grandma’s Potato Nik recipe (which is actually a new addition to our holiday recipes because we JUST found her recipe book!!! So please follow my Instagram stories tomorrow.)
We will ALSO be making brisket tomorrow - but that is step one of a two day recipe for day 2. In addition, I will be sharing recipes for strudel and marble cake. So, get ready! It’s a big cooking day!
I did have a few stories go live this weekend, but I’m going to put them in a scheduled newsletter post for Tuesday. Also, I’m working on a Forbes.com story with a roundup of great things to serve for Yom Kippur break fast. Think things along the lines of bagels and lox, sable, whitefish (If you have any pitches to put my way, please email me!)
