A Pizza Tradition

17 Feb

My boyfriend and I celebrated Valentine’s Day the day after as on Thursday our Team was performing at the Toronto Bachata Festival pre-party.

This is the third year I’m lucky enough to spend Valentines Day with the same guy, and we’ve got a tradition now: we make His and Hers pizza.  I cook, he cleans 🙂

To drink?  How about a bottle local Sparkling White Wine. It’s bubbly so it feels celebratory, and goes well with a light meal.

We went the easy route and made pizza with store-bought dough (whole wheat, of course).  We selected our own toppings:

His: mozzarella, arugula, prosciutto, salami, tomatoes, peppers, pesto,  Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Hers: arugula, minced garlic, tomatoes, prosciutto, Parmigiano-Reggiano.

And we both had chocolate cupcakes for dessert too!

    Both pizzas sound might fine! I smiled at your “I cook, he cleans :-)” I always tell people…”He cooks, I clean BUT also I cook, I clean!” Um-m-m? Seems like something is missing from this picture! 😆

      “I cook, he cleans” is a fair trade-off; “I cook, I clean” – not so much 🙂

        Not so bad…he always ends up getting wet when he cooks, I clean! 😆
