Deep Dish Veggie Pizza

We all have different coping mechanisms.

I typically choose avoidance or delusion to deal with my issues. Today’s issue is almost too huge for one human being to handle alone. Missing Friday pizza & sad movie nights with Cheryl (BFF).

These nights happened so often over the past 5 years that we stopped discussing them at some point down the line. “Ordering pizza at 6. Bring movie & nail polish” is typically how we made plans.

So we have found a way around the 3,000 miles that separate us! We make fake plans throughout the week.

“Let’s go drink margaritas & go to the movies this weekend.”

“K which movie?”

“Idk we’ll let the margaritas decide when we get there”


Avoid & delude, my friends.

But really we’ve eaten so much pizza over the course of our friendship it’s in our top 5 of possible matchingΒ tattoos. (Coming October 2015)


Time: 40 minutes (prep + cooking) | Serves: 2


  • 1 pizza dough
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. of olive oil
  • 1 cup of tomato sauce

How to:

  • Heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat
  • Add onion, cooking for 6-7 minutes or until starting to caramelize
  • Add red pepper + green pepper + S+P, cook another 3 minutes
  • Add jalapeno + garlic, cook one more minute
  • In a cast iron skillet, add last tbsp. of olive oil
  • Roll out dough in skillet + stretch to each end
