One-Pot Wonder: Easy Pizza for Two

by in Books, March 4th, 2016

Easy Pizza for TwoWe’re close to turning the corner from winter to spring, and there’s no better kitchen tool to get you through the last dregs of the cold days and long nights than a Dutch oven. We fell in love with Hillary Davis’ book Le French Oven to keep our kitchens cozy and our winter plates full of stick-to-your-bones dishes.

Davis takes the Dutch oven (or “the French oven,” as she calls it) and helps it reach its full potential as a kitchen workhorse. The book features savory and hearty soup and stew recipes, of course, but also dishes you might not associate with a Dutch oven, including the droolworthy Easy Pizza for Two pictured above. “When we think of Dutch/French ovens, we think of stews or soups. But they are superb at baking. I make bread and pizza in mine on a regular basis,” Davis told us. Read on below to get the recipe for this pizza.

Hear from Davis below as she shares her do’s and don’ts for cooking with a Dutch oven, and find out what she enjoys cooking most in her own Dutch ovens.

Broccoli Pesto Pizza — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, February 22nd, 2016

Broccoli Pesto PizzaHomemade pizza in 30 minutes — yes, it’s possible, and it’s shockingly easy to pull off. The key to any speedy pie is a ready-to-go pizza dough so you’re not waiting on the yeast to rise. After that, it’s all about layering the sauce and toppings and baking it for just a few minutes.

In this go-to recipe for Broccoli Pesto Pizza, a store-bought whole-wheat dough provides the crust for this fuss-free pie, while a blanket of no-cook broccoli-basil pesto serves as the base layer of flavor on top. When it comes to the cheese, opt for a creamy, crumbly goat cheese for a welcome tangy bite in place of the usual mozzarella, and add fresh tomato slices for brightness. After just a quick bake in the oven, finish this top-rated pizza by sprinkling it with nutty Parmesan, fragrant basil and red pepper flakes for subtle heat.

How You Eat a Slice of Pizza Reveals a Lot About Your Personality

How You Eat a Slice of Pizza Reveals a Lot About Your PersonalityBy Lauren Haslett

We all know there’s more than one way to eat a slice of pizza. Some people actually use utensils, some go for the crust first, some of us are advocates for folding, and others just bite in without contemplating the many possibilities of pizza eating.

Patti Wood, a renowned body language and human behavior expert who teaches at Emory University, recently shared her insight with Redbook Magazine and the world at large on just how many ways there are to attack a deliciously cheesy, melty slice (there are exactly four, if you’re wondering). And she explained what those methods reveal about the eaters’ personalities.

Wood is often consulted by media and tabloids to weigh in on celebrity body language, determining from Beyoncé’s or Jay Z’s stance and expressions whether they’re on the brink of divorce, for example. But apparently her same method can just as easily be applied to the average person and his or her favorite way to chow down on a cheap slice of pizza.

Wood’s four approaches to pizza eating correspond to four personality types: drivers, influencers, supporters and careful correctors. Each personality type (and its corresponding pizza-eating tactic) is laid out below. Where do you fall on Wood’s pizza-and-personality scale?
