Excuses, excuses, excuses

I know we’ve all heard it from everyone we know and we’ve said it ourselves. “I’m too busy to get everything done.” Well, I’m saying it now. “I’m busy, stressed and panicked.” In the spirit of having more to do than you can possibly ever accomplish, I bring you frozen pizza.

Easy Pizza

1 frozen cheese pizza*
1/2 C-1 C mozzarella cheese
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup olives, sliced
1 can (8 oz.) artichoke hearts, quartered
1/4 C fresh grated parmesan cheese

*You can also start with a frozen pepperoni pizza. Also, don’t be afraid to experiment using your favorite pizza toppings to make a great pie.

Preheat you oven to 425 degrees Farenheit*. Remove the pizza from its packaging. Place the pizza on an ungreased cookie sheet or pizza pan. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top. Add the mushrooms, olives and artichoke hearts. Drizzle the olive oil over the top of the pie.

Place the pizza in the oven and let cook for about 10 minutes. Add the parmesan to the pizza. Let the pie finish cooking for about 5 more minutes. Remove from the oven, slice and enjoy!

**Times and temperatures are based on Tombstone brand frozen pizza. Please follow the cooking directions on the pizza you buy. Remembering to add the parmesan just before the pizza is done.
