Happy Monday, everyone! As you may have noticed, the blog got a little unplanned face-lift. I say “unplanned” because well, it was just that.
I woke up Saturday morning, and all my photos and blog header, and sidebar everything were gone. My heart completely sank. Apparently my bandwidth was too much for my image-hosting site. I do all my own blog designing, so I didn’t have anyone to really call and find a fix. Plus, my image header code was completely gone, so I knew right then I’d need to redesign the dang thing again. So my entire Saturday morning and afternoon were spent redesigning everything, learning more HTML coding, trying to keep it together, and seriously contemplating hiring a web designer. However, paying down law-school student loans and new-home-down-payment savings are where any of our extra money is flying in, so hiring anyone was completely out of the question. I was stuck sitting there in front of my computer, trying not to pull all my blondie hairs right out of my head in frustration.
Thankfully, things came together quickly, I found another host for my photos, and I was able to make the page mine again. I like my page even better this way, so in a way, the “blog-apocalypse” worked out for the best. Although, on that Saturday afternoon, the silver lining was nowhere to be found. Now, things are all good. Hooray!
This pizza. GUYS. This pizza!!! I made this as a last-minute kind of thing and it turned out amazing! I knew I didn’t want to slave away all day on some rising pizza dough, and I wanted a thin crust, so this thin-crust pizza dough was perfect. It’s super low-maintenance (especially if you have a mixer with a paddle attachment).
While the dough is coming together, you can grill up the chicken and cook the bacon. Using leftover chicken is perfect for a pizza like this. The sauce is a little on the heavy side, so if you’d like to use skim milk or something a little more mild like that, go for it. The bacon, this time, I used *gasp!* turkey bacon. It was a little more than $2 for the package – much better than almost $5. I mean, I love real bacon, but if I’ve already spent the majority of the meal budget on chicken, a little skimp on the bacon is just fine in my book.
Also, do NOT SKIP THE GREEN PEPPER. Can I stress this enough? It sounds weird, but holy smokes. Green pepper on a pizza with bacon, chicken, and alfredo is an incredible combo. You’ll never go back 🙂
