Football = Pizza
The Minnesota Vikings season is in full force and that means pizza on game day. This can mean homemade, delivery, or take & bake. I hadn't made homemade in quite a while and had new recipes I was looking forward to trying.
This pizza has a garlic cream sauce; found by my mother-in-law in

This beautiful blog has been on my reading list ever since.
Garlic Cream Sauce
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 clove of garlic
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/8th teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/8th teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1/4th cup Parmesan Reggiano
In a saucepan melt the butter and olive oil together over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant. Turn the heat to medium low and add the rest of the ingredients, but add the cheese last so it doesn’t hit the hot pan and seize up. Stir constantly until thickened.
The taste was terrific, but I think I probably needed to let the sauce cook a bit longer.
Ton O' cheese on this baby; as you can maybe tell by the photo. Lots of shredded cheese and some fresh mozzarella sliced on top. The dough was thick and soft. Pretty good; I have to say.
Also of note: the Vikings won!
