One my favourite things to do for dinner is to create a gourmet pizza. Tonight Jonathan and I decided on some tasty prosciutto, the ever trendy arugula and delicious mushrooms. While grocery store pitas do not rival the crusts of Woodenheads in Kingston, or Pizzeria Libretto in Toronto, they make a lot less mess for a Thursday night.
With the pitas as a crust, tomato sauce (any kind you have available), mozzarella, diced tomatoes, shredded prosciutto, mushrooms and arugula, came a flavourful and healthy dinner. After drizzling a small amount of extra virgin olive oil on top, the pizzas were baked in the oven at 350 degrees F until the cheese was melted and the crust was a beautiful golden brown.
I would love to have gourmet pizza at my wedding, but perhaps it’s not classy enough; then again, maybe the wine would make up for it? Also, I’m not sure Martha Stewart – or our Moms! – would approve of the idea. What we will probably eat at our wedding is whatever the wonderful chefs at Splendido dream up, using the best of fresh, seasonal Ontario ingredients.
Regardless, we have over a year to dream up possible menus.
