Another summer favorite, comin atcha!

If you asked me if I’ve made this 1500 times in the last two weeks, I’d say yes. Yes, emphatically yes.

It’s the kind of recipe where everything stays good for a long time in your fridge or freezer, so I just keep all the ingredients on hand at all times, and this becomes my we-don’t-have-any-groceries-but-I-can-still-make-magic meal. Crust = freezer. Pepperoncini, salami, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sauce = fridge. Chickpeas, olives = pantry. Gang’s all there and ready to party, no matter how many days (fine, weeks) I’ve been neglecting the grocery store.

This chopped salad pizza situation is what summer tastes like to me. We’ve got a crispy, crackery crust baked with just a super thin layer of tomato sauce and mozz, and topped off with a complete bomb-overload of Italian-y chopped salad – the type that is in no way a “salad” but more like heavy with salami, cheese, pepperoncini, olives, tomatoes, and homemade Italian dressing.

Ohmygoodness. I cannot get enough. Take a little look:

I could actually dive into a bowl of this and be happy living there until the end of summer.

It is my warm-weather food bliss.

Once you’ve got the salad chopped (it’s a little bit of a pain so just pour yourself something to drink and put some good music on), the rest is so easy. You just bake a crust with sauce and cheese, and put that salad right on top.

Also notable is that in case you don’t have sauce/cheese or maybe don’t like sauce/cheese (please no, I hope not), it actually does well on top of a naked crust, too, as long as the crust has a good crispy crackle to it. We’re looking for the kind of crust that just sort of crackles into little shattered pieces when you cut into it. Thin crust, flatbread, that sort of thing.

Or you know what? Try it on just crackers. You can be that basic. This is a safe zone for all your crispy chopped salad delivering vehicles.

K, let’s just make sure to be clear about how easy it is to eat.

Which is NOT VERY EASY. It is a big ol’ mess – I mean, it’s a salad on a pizza. Stuff is going to be falling off all over the place, especially if your crust gets a little soft in the middle. It also doesn’t keep well (again, SALAD ON PIZZA) and kind of requires you to eat the whole thing in one sitting, or do some prep work while keeping everything stored separately. So please be advised – chopped salad pizza is ideal for the following situations:

  • Solo hungry moment with a glass of Rose
  • Dinner with friends who love to shove food in their faces equally as much as you do
  • Lunch where you can start with a fork and knife and finish with your hands
  • A time and place where you’ve got one hundred napkins at the ready

Please don’t let that stop you. Pretty please. This could be our summer 2017 food fling.

This is one of those no-recipe recipes where I just tell you what to put in it and you decide on the amounts of everything. You cool wit dat? The only thing I’d recommend measuring out specifically is the Italian dressing, if you want to make your own, and I included the amounts for that in the notes section. ūüėė

Get after it!

Chopped Salad Pizza


  • Author: Lindsay
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes

Description

A tangy Italian chopped salad on a crispy flatbread pizza with tomato and mozzarella, aka Chopped Salad Pizza. My favorite food this summer!


Ingredients

For the Chopped Salad:

  • romaine lettuce
  • cherry tomatoes
  • chickpeas
  • salami
  • cheesefeta, parmesan, or mozzarella are all nice
  • pepperoncini
  • olives
  • parsleyor any other herbs you like
  • Italian dressing see notes¬†

Pizza: 

  • pizza crust, such as Flatout Flatbread Crust
  • tomato sauce
  • mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Salad: Chop all your salad ingredients and toss with some dressing. I like when it has a little time to sit and marinate together in the dressing.
  2. Pizza: Bake your crust for about 5-7 minutes at 375 degrees  to get it crispy. If it needs more time, give it up to 10 minutes. Top with a light layer of sauce and cheese and return to the oven until the cheese is melted.
  3. Assembly: Top the pizza with the salad. Cut and serve. Yummy!

Notes

This recipe makes quite a bit of dressing so you’ll probably have some leftover – which is fine by me because it goes well with just about everything.

For DELICIOUS homemade Italian dressing, blend these ingredients until smooth and creamy:

  • 3/4 cup olive oil,¬†2 tablespoons white vinegar,¬†2 tablespoons water, 1¬†tablespoon coarse salt (less if using table salt),¬†1 teaspoon dried basil, 1¬†teaspoon dried oregano,¬†1 clove garlic

Classic Wedge Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

Classic Wedge Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

For years, iceberg lettuce got a real thrashing from chefs who thought of it as tasteless and nothing but texture. What’s wrong with great texture?

Cut up a head of iceberg for a classic wedge salad, add blue cheese dressing, smoky bacon, and a few cherry tomatoes, and even the worst kitchen snobs will change their minds!

One Thousand Miles of Alaska

http://cdn.pinchofyum.com/wp-content/uploads/Alaska-1.jpg

That’s literal.

It’s actually 1,015 miles, to be exact. That’s how much Alaskan ground we covered in our short 5-day jaunt¬†through the great state of Alaska.

When our friend Frank told us that he would be working in Alaska this summer, texts started flying. Bjork and I, along with our friend Joe, did not waste any time planning a reunion¬†“to visit Frank”¬†in Alaska. You know how that is, right? Your friend goes somewhere awesome and it is almost a requirement that you go visit? That was this. From the start, it was destined¬†to be the ultimate adventure – Rendezvous in the Midnight Sun, we called it.

Bjork and I are high school sweethearts (if that term doesn’t make you gag a little bit, you are rock solid), and Frank and Joe¬†are two of our high school friends, so mostly the high-school level inside jokeage on this trip was out of control. We’re talking sore-abs level laughter. It has been a long time since I laughed that hard.

And that’s really the best part about Alaska, for me – the time spent laughing and adventuring (slash misadventuring) with friends.

But we also did really see a lot of Alaska.

Like, more than a thousand miles’ worth.

I cannot¬†be a minimalist in this moment, so this post is just a blast of pictures from our journey through Alaska. Mostly because I like to document, and because this is a blog, and because sometimes it’s fun to see what other people are doing in the world. Please, all of you, go start blogs and post your vacation pictures. I promise to look at all of them. This is a thing for me.

At the bottom of this post, I will list out a few favorite places that we hit up for those who might be planning their own Alaskan trek.

And for the rest of you, may these pictures prove to you that even short trips are worth the time and energy, that old friends are hilarious, that Alaska is sparkling with magic.

Seward

First stop: Seward!

If I could only go back to one place in Alaska, it would be Seward, hands-down. As much as I love the mountainous wonder that is everywhere in Alaska, it is the mountainous wonder + crystal clear blue ocean that really puts stars in my eyes.

Also, humpback whales and puffins and orcas in the wild … that doesn’t hurt, either.

Kenai Fjords

Number one most amazing experience of my life. Or at least REALLY high up there, along with road-tripping through Big Sur and motorcycling across the island to Moalboal when we lived in the Philippines.

My love for this little 6-hour, 100-mile, glacier-viewing cruise was just unstoppable.

Oh, and by the way, I GOT A TATTOO.

Exit Glacier

Denali National Park

13 hours on a school bus national park tour = 13 grizzly bear sightings, dozens of caribou in a “nursery herd,” one moose mama and baby, mountain-climbing curly-horned dall sheep, and views that I cannot figure out how to make look NOT fake.

This place is on a whole ‘nother level.

The bus situation:

Moose mama:

SO MUCH WILDNERNESS.

It is remote beyond remote.

I have never tasted cheap pizza so good.

What an adventure. It was everything a Rendezvous in the (literal) Midnight Sun should be.

Here’s a list of our stops:

  • Seward, Alaska¬†– HIGHLY recommend. The drive from Anchorage to Seward is totally magical.
  • Kenai Fjords Tours – HIGHLY recommend. The 6-hour tour was perfect for us.
  • Seward Brewing Company – that picture of the halibut curry up there? yeah. good, good food.
  • Smoke Shack – yummy for breakfast.
  • Exit Glacier – a nice lil’ hike.
  • Last Frontier Brewing Company – a good stop on the way from Anchorage to Denali. Surprisingly¬†good pizza and burgers.
  • McKinley Creekside Cabins and Cafe – an easy and comfy place to stay close to the entrance of Denali National Park.
  • Denali National Park – yes, yes, and yes. If I did it again, I think I would go for the medium-long bus ride instead of the long-long one, because my favorite stop was about halfway – Eielson Visitor Center. Please note that if you are nervous about bus rides over steep cliff drop-offs on one way dirt “roads,” you may need to struggle through for a hot minute. (HI.) But you will make it and it will be so worth it.
  • Panorama Pizza Pub – so basic, so good. Especially after 13 hours on a school bus in the wilderness.

Okay, so who’s been to Alaska? Experienced any of the same, or something different? Tell, tell, tell! ‚ô°

If you’d like to see/read more, I have some videos on my personal Instagram account – @lindsaymostrom¬†– including one of the bus tour that might make you sick. Whee! Enjoy!

When it’s blueberry season, all thoughts (at least at my house) turn to pie or cobbler. Except when it’s so hot outside the asphalt is melting and the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven.

Enter the New England classic‚ÄĒBlueberry Slump! (or Blueberry Grunt if you’re from some parts)

A slump is made entirely on the stovetop, no need to heat the kitchen with your oven. Into a pot go blueberries, lemon, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar, which you heat until the berries are bubbling.
