One of the things that helps keep me sane with my busy schedule is planning our weekly menu. To some people it seems kind of weird but once you get into the groove of it, I find menu planning to be a lifesaver. We know in advance what we’re going to eat each night so we don’t have to spend 30 minutes each night opening and closing the freezer or pantry trying to decide what to eat.

Fridays are made doubly easy because it’s the same every week. Pizza.

Pizza is the one thing I allow us to have all the time. I’m strange in that I don’t want to be eating repeats during a given month. We might have pasta with tomato sauce twice, but only if I can’t come up with something more creative. At the end of the week, though, I love having pizza as our go-to. I make a bowl of dough when I get off work, prep toppings, and by the time 5 rolls around, we just need to have fun assembling.

But since we have pizza a lot (Fig Pizza, Pizza Friday, Sausage and Onion Pizza, Pest-OH! Pizza), it was a bit hard to come up with a plan for Project Food Blog Round 5: Pizza.

At first I was determined to make pizza cones, something I had tried back in March but didn’t have success with.

Pizza Cones - Day 71/365: Experiments

Unfortunately, no success again. I just couldn’t get the dough pre-cooked enough to not be soggy in the final product.

I moved on, and somehow immediately thought of the leftover barbecue beef in the fridge. Because we bought a side of a cow, we always seem to have a lot of beef around, and a roast sure does make a lot of barbecue. And then of course I thought about all the fresh produce right now – oddly enough we’re still getting summer lovin’ from the eggplant and tomato plants.

Garden Pizzas

1 eggplant, sliced into rounds
2 ounces pesto sauce
1 tomato, diced
Shredded mozzarella

Preheat broiler.
In a dry cast-iron pan (preferably grill pan) sear the eggplant for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove to parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Spread a layer of pesto on each round, then top with chopped tomato and shredded mozzarella.
Put under the broiler until heated through and the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.

The tangy goat cheese plays off nicely with the hatch pepper sauce, and I love the meatiness of the eggplant. Plus this pizza combination is perfect to serve to others, because you can please both the carnivores and vegetarians. And no fussy yeast required.

  1. Fabulous little pizza bites Megan. I had too many ideas for this post too hence my little bites. Can you imagine if we got together and had a pizza party? I especially love your beef topping on the corn one!! Good luck – hopefully we care both packing our coolers together!!!!

  2. I’d be all about those garden pizzas. They’d make awesome starters or snacks for guests. I’d probably stack them and eat them as a meal, too.

    Now…let me see if I got this right: you bought a side of beef? Wow.

  3. Menu planning really is helpful isn’t it? I find it especially useful in figuring out hot to use up those items still sitting in the fridge. Nice job with the pizzas and great work with PFB!

  4. beautiful! both of these look just incredible. And I love making them bite sized. The eggplant is a genius base. Nicely done. I voted for you again!

    Best of luck! Hope to see us both in round 6!!! =)
