Pizza Pizza Pizza

I’m pretty sure my boyfriend and I have pizza at least 2 times a week. I’m also pretty sure we are addicted to pizza. But hey, why not when it’s so easy to make? We recently went to a nifty restaurant/brewery called Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Company in Indianapolis, IN and we absolutely fell in love with the Snow Bunny Blonde glaze they had on their pizza.

A few weeks later we were craving that delicious glaze again and since we live in Viriginia, we had to find a way to taste that heaven again. I found a Rachel Rae balsamic glaze at the grocery store and thought we could give that a try. We found heaven. We tweaked our classic margherita pizza from before by adding chicken and the glaze. Man, oh man. It was perfect and my new favorite kind of pizza. I think we’ve made it three times now and we might get a little carried away with the glaze…

Margherita Pizza with Chicken

3-4 chicken breast tenders
1/2 – 1 cups of marinara

4. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar glaze all over that bad boy.
5. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes.

Perfect Date Night

I’ve come to realize that pizza is the best meal in the world. Other than it being absolutely delicious, it’s also extremely fun to make and can be the perfect date night. I recently put this to the test with my boyfriend who doesn’t have much cooking experience, loves pizza, and loves me (obviously).

We originally planned to make one tasty pizza but made too much dough so we decided to make a BBQ chicken pizza and a classic margherita pizza. I let him take over the margherita pizza since that’s his favorite. The results of the evening were perfect.

Margherita Pizza
 
As you can see, the boyfriend wasn’t completely happy with the original cheese-to-sauce ratio, so we added more halfway through baking! These may not be the most eye catching pizzas, but they were delicious and we had a ton of fun cooking together.
