More About This Recipe

  • We've all been there. At least once. And sometimes we have a feeling it's going to happen. Like some little squeaky voice in our gut just lets us know. But other times it hits us upside the head like a yellow foam Nerf bat, minus the yellow foam Nerf part. I'm talking about: A kitchen fail. Being a food blogger, there are two types of kitchen fails for me. Ones that maybe sort of fail but it still tastes totes pimp and you can garnish it with this or that, trim up an edge, position it to see only the purty sides. And then there are the ones that send you straight to the self-esteem camp sign up forms, and then back to bed. With a bottle of red wine. I'M KIDDING, YOU GUYS. It would be a bottle of white wine. So yeah, Weidner kitchen fail of spring just happened. I had this way tubular idea to use thin crust pizza dough in place of a QUICHE CRUST. Cute, right? And I was going to make mini pizza quiches in little muffin tins for all the world to see and enjoy. And then my whole life fell apart like a scene in an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie and things were burning and exploding and sticking and there were car chases and collapsing buildings and my hair fell out. You feel me. So, I had some leftover Pillsbury™ pizza dough (thank the ponies) and a bunch of spring veggies (thank the baby puppies) so my noggin cranked into overdrive because my stomach was eating my head and I was about to pass out. And then we had these gawgeous rustic spring pizzettes! Being a failure rules! And we have half a dough ball from Pillsbury™ (don't laugh) some peas, asparagus, shallots, garlic, some herbies, oil and cheese. There we have it. True love.
