Today was my second homemade pizza adventure. I basically tried to use up everything I had as toppings (does that qualify as a kitchen sink pizza?)... First I brushed both crusts with sage-infused olive oil. One of them had regular pizza sauce with mushrooms, bell pepper, mozzarella, and a little parmesan. The other had a pesto base (basil, oil, garlic, parmesan) with a layer of mashed white sweet potato, topped with chickpeas and parmesan. It seems a little weird but it turned out delicious! I had two white sweet potatoes to use up so I thought to myself, better put them on a pizza. That pizza was a little sweet from the basil and white sweet potato, but that combination with the herb, garlic, and parmesan made it yummy. I didn't have anything else today besides a granola bar and some chocolate that my labmate gave me, leftover from a chocolate tasting. I love my job sometimes :)
