This is how my morning went today. Last night, I stayed up late making a big batch of homemade pizza dough so we can have pizza anytime we want to. I freeze some of the dough and left one in the refrigerator for my son's lunch. I got up early this morning so I could bake the homemade personal pizza for my little man's lunch today. I prepared the toppings with some sauce mixed in with pureed sweet potato, chicken, lots of Mozzarella cheese, S&P, and then I baked it. After baking, the pizza wasn't brown enough and not all the cheeses have melted so I decided to turn the Broiler on high and I went on and helped my son get ready for school (big mistake). All of a sudden I smelled something burning and I remembered my pizza is BURNING!!!! UGH!!!! I was so mad and so upset, I couldn't get over it right away. I was really mad at myself for doing that. You would think I would be smart enough because I have been making homemade pizza a lot of times now, but still I make mistake.
I apologized to my son that he won't have pizza for lunch today because his mom burnt the pizza. Yeah! ME. I burnt the pizza. Now, I was in a hurry to fix something before they head to school and I only had a few minutes left or else he'll be late. I cut out some heart-shaped whole wheat bread with some honey, grabbed some of the Sweet Potato Scones that I made last night, a banana and stuffed it in his lunch bag. Then I told my son that is what's for lunch, and he looked at me with that sad face. So they head out the door on their way to school in a hurry, only to find out there's no class today. After learning that there is no school today, I thought to myself, "Well, I guess it was okay the pizza was burnt". And that's how I got over this issue. (LOL) My lesson learned is to make it ahead and reheat the day I need it. Or make a back up. I didn't get to make meals ahead this week, so that's why. But I really like making the pizza dough ahead and bake it with the toppings fresh. Oh well! And that's the story of the burnt pizza. May you have a great day!
It looked like this! Sadness! Oh well, I will make another one again and this time, I will be more careful.
