Confused by the title? Please see: Cheeses Christ, this is good pizza.
So, Pita Jungle has this legendary Chipotle Chicken Lavosh pizza. It’s incredible. I have around 10 pictures of it on my phone…and I’ve never ordered it myself. Common theme: I don’t order all of these incredible dishes, I just drool at them, take their picture and then ask for a bite from the owner.
A couple of days ago, my little sister had a moment of brilliance. Homegirl decided on a whim that we should buy some lavosh flatbreads at Trader Joe’s and bring it home–literally and figuratively to make magic happen.
We spent a solid 30 minutes preparing homemade pesto, chopped chicken breast, fresh tomato chunks, red onions, honey goat cheese, fresh mozzarella and garlic olive oil for our lavosh pizza dinner. Our mom escaped the kitchen to clean our toilets, like any good mom does, and returned when the oven beeped ready.
Truthfully, our Chicken Pesto Lavosh pizzas TRUMPED Pita Jungle’s Chipotle Chicken version. Nothing beats homemade pesto. NOTHING. I just use basil, spinach, garlic and olive oil in mine. If I were rich, I’d probably add parmesan and pine nuts.
I’m also getting pretty fantastic at designing a homemade pizza, starting with raw dough from Sprouts or Trader Joe’s…
Last weekend, me and my girl Alejandra decided to spontaneously venture down south to Tucson, the land of my conception, and visit my best friend Dylan Moran. I asked Dylan before we even arrived if we could cook dinner–and had pizza on my mind all day.
We whipped up a fantabulous dinner with fresh dough, honey goat cheese, tomato sauce, hot sausage, bell peppers, onions and mozarella. I also did work on my favorite type of salad–greek, with feta (mostly for Alejandra’s mouth pleasure).
We split the grocery bill and it was only $7 a piece–for a full pizza and salad meal. God bless Sprouts.
Additionally, I am under the understanding that cooking is sexy. If this is the case, I am wondering why I am still single…?
P.S.–Honorable pizza mention goes out to the recent re-discovery I made. Florencia’s Pizza Bistro does the most with this incredible “Raspolte” pizza that I crave nearly daily. Goat cheese and tangy, spicy raspberry sauce–just shut up.
