When I originally got the dish and title from Clair, I planned to have this post appear close to Halloween. Well, I overshot a little. But zombies are in season year-round, right?
And then when I tell you that even the resident curmudgeon read this book and pronounced it a bit of good, light fun, worth reading, you’ll understand that I took that to be something special. He usually goes for the tongue-in-cheek irreverent type of humor, but zombies? And furthermore, the dish Clair gave me… well, this is a fun read and recipe for a night at home. Meat-lover’s pizza! and a book on zombies!
This is when the Jr. Mad Scientist got involved. While she highly approves of pizza, she’s not keen on tomatoes. Mama, can you make it with no pizza sauce? Maybe with something like that great garlic sauce we got at that one place? Sure…
So I made toum.
You can find the recipe for Toum here. I have to say that we’re loving that stuff, but we love garlic. If your family is not as garlicky-loving as ours, you may want to opt for simply using olive oil. Or pizza sauce.
Pizza, at the heart of it, is flat bread with stuff on it. In this case, we used italian sausage, pepperoni, and bacon. With cheese, lots of cheese. Pizza isn’t a recipe as much as it is a stylistic choice. What do you want on yours? Go ahead and put it on there… Oh. I just started with my French bread dough for the crust.
