Pizza Party

Two friends and I got together for a pizza/martini party a few weeks ago. One friend made the crust and all of us brought together our favourite ingredients.

The results:

#1 "The West Coast" was topped with parboiled yams, soft cheese curds, basil and tomato sauce.

#2 Half "Traditional", topped with basil, tomato and mozzarella on tomato sauce and half "Emerald City", topped with pine nuts, basil, grated green apple and dates on pesto sauce. There were caramelized onions somewhere in here too, but I am not sure what pizza they ended up on.

Orange Blossom Martini

.5 oz simple syrup
1 oz lemon vodka
1 oz Cointreau
Juice of one orange + a bit of pulp

Shake with ice and enjoy!

Along with a viewing of "Shakespeare in Love" it was a fun night with the girls :)

Hey Melissa - I love this post - we do a pizza night with friends but your pizzas are way more gourmet and sound delish.

I am going to email you with a password and would love to be invited to your blog :)
