The Pie's the Limit

Time to empty out the fridge and make some pizza. 
Kansas and Connecticut.  Sounds like a Final Four match-up.
 These had oysters, spinach, cob-smoked bacon, and basil.

Earlier, I had grilled some vegetables so we wouldn't feel so damn
guilty just eating decadent pizza for dinner.  I'll be picking at this for
days to come.  Monday and maybe Tuesday.  Then it will be gone.

Mommy doesn't care for the fancy toppings, so mushrooms and 
basil are more than sufficient.  A nice tea towel helped to curb the 
heat.  Eventually we'll put it away before it gets too frayed.

By now you've realized that I don't give a damn about the shape
of the pie itself.  I've done extensive research on that subject in
particular, and I can confidently report that the shape has absolutely
nothing to do with how it tastes. 

Liv's pie had chicken-apple sausage and fried red potato slices.
And it was damn good, too.  We love you Hannah, but you had
to get back to school before we had dinner.  We'll do it again.


  1. not sure about the oysters, but all the rest look awesome! my wife loves to have grilled veggies like that.

    when I was still a young lad, my mom used to make home-made pizza, using giant cookie sheets for the crust as we had a large family. I remember one time she made the crusts, and then realized we didn't have much in the way of "pizza" toppings... so she topped one of the pizza crusts with leftover corned beef and (home-made) saukerkraut - and it was awesome!

  2. Most people don't know about home-made sauerkraut. All one needs is salt and cabbage. Best I've ever had was stuff I made myself. Reuben pizza....with melted swiss on top?

  3. Certainly looks superior to Geno's or Pat's fare.

  4. Just make your crusts in the shape of New Jersey and forgetaboutit!!!

  5. No Doug, that would be in the shape of Brooklyn.

  6. Tell that to Pauly Walnuts, I think he is from Morristown, N.J., He has got that Somerset County way about him, likes his pies, Jersey like...

  7. Check the Google, Mr. Huber. Morristown sits in Morris County. But I won't hold that against a country gentleman from Virginia.

  8. That was the jibe. Morris County is more of Penobscott Village than a Suprano type of town oops, Township ....if you get what I mean.
