Pizza Night!

I had another pizza night with the girls a while back. We had a great time planning our toppings and then downed the cheesy goodness. It was cool enough to use the oven for a couple of hours, but still summery enough to justify my favourite summer beverage, the Coco Loco.

Pesto, yellow squash, pine nut and mozzarella

Pesto, pear and brie on the left and a traditional tomato, basil and mozzarella on the right

Tomato, salami, caramelized onion, olive, feta and mozzarella

And, for those so inclined, the recipe for the Coco Loco is as follows:
  • 1 oz coconut rum
  • juice of half a lime
  • splash of grenadine
  • lots of ice
  • 7-up (as much as you'd like, I use about 1 cup)
Stir together and top with a paper umbrella (optional)

Oh my goodness, I just ate dinner an hour ago and looking at your pictures made me hungry again. I adore homemade pizza...I think my favourite would be the last one...minus the olives.

Mmm, your pizzas look delicious! And, yay for Coco Locos!!

Long live the Coco Loco!

(And I dislike olives too, Ruth. I did not eat that pizza!)
