Dinner Last Week::
I love when a delicious and distinctive meal comes out of whatever is lying around in the fridge. I think it actually improves the whole meal experience…ya know, low expectations! Maybe I should lower my expectations all the time and be pleasantly surprised when dinner is quick and delicious and did not require it’s very own trip to the store for exact ingredients!
This is one of those dinners! Swiss chard that was on its way to being sad, some garlic chicken sausages from Trader Joe’s, just enough mozzarella, a quarter of a red onion and some pizza dough from the fridge. I quickly sautéed the chard and sliced and browned the sausage a bit. Seasoned with salt, pepper and herbs and drizzled with some garlic oil! I also pre-bake the pizza dough as I find it stays a bit crispier. Oven is preheated to 450º with a pizza stone, roll or stretch out the dough, load it into the oven for 4-6 minutes, just until it is firm enough to pull out in one piece without ripping or tearing. Toss all the ingredients on top and throw it back in the oven for another 3-6 minutes.
