Boboli pizza-- buy the Boboli crusts and make pizzas. Don't use their sauce packets though. Bleah. For pizza, a simple uncooked sauce is best.
14 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 clove or two of garlic minced
Fresh basil or dried crumbled oregano to taste
salt and pepper to taste
Mix that up and let it stand for a bit for the flavors to meld.
Heat your oven to 450.
Meanwhile, set up your pizza. Brush the crust with olive oil. Sprinkle with a little dried oregano. Spoon on some sauce and spread it around thinly. It doesn't take a lot of sauce to properly sauce a pizza.
Top with cheese of your choice,, many work well. Again, light with the cheese. Good pizza is more about restraint than gluttony.
Meats go on top of the cheese. Not a lot needed here either. Bake it 10 minutes or so until the cheese is bubbly and browned. Let it rest a few minutes outside of the oven before cutting or the cheese tends to slide off in the cutting.
If you have a food processor, you can make your own pizza dough quite easily and it's much better than pre-fab crusts and such. I give some detailed steps in this thread.
Simple Black Bean Soup
14 oz can of black beans
14 oz can chicken stock, low sodium
1 clove garlic minced
sour cream to garnish
Mix the first three ingredients in a saucepan. Do not rinse the beans, you want their liquid and starchy parts. Heat, taste and correct seasoning with salt and pepper as needed. ladle into bowls, garnish with a little sour cream. Tasty, easy, fast.
Tilt different directions with salsa for example. Or saute a strip of bacon first, remove to cool. Then cook the garlic in the rendered bacon fat for 30-60 seconds, add the rest of the ingredients, and crumble the bacon back on top when you serve. Or add some chopped ham.
