What's for supper?

Yes, we call that meal supper! Growing up a farm girl, in the Midwest, dinner was always called supper. The meal at noon time was called dinner....not lunch. Lunch was the mid afternoon meal of Mom's home made caramel rolls or fresh baked cookies and coffee or milk....geez, I miss those caramel rolls! It was also common for Dad to take a quick nap at this time of day before returning out to the fields or barns. Jeepers almost forgot about breakfast! Yes, breakfast on the farm was a meal of eggs, bacon or sausage, toast and orange juice. Yeppers, we pretty much ate around the clock on the farm. No wonder mom was always in the kitchen doing dishes.
About 3 o clock each work day I ask Bev (the lady who carefully packs all of your orders), "What's for supper?" It is at this time of day I start to think about supper...
After the days mail is dropped off at the post office, it is pretty common practice to go home and surround myself with cook books...looking for something quick & easy. Today's chosen recipe for supper (aka dinner) was
Garlic Chicken Pizza....yummy! Definitely gets a smiley face.
Give it a try...bet you can't eat just one piece!
Garlic Chicken Pizza
1 box of Pillsbury Hot Roll Mix
2 Tablespoons cornmeal
1 small jar Alfredo Sauce
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
10 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 grilled skinless, boneless chicken breast diced (I used chicken fajita meat from our cold meat deli to speed things up)
1/4 red onion, sliced
1 tomato, cut into small wedges
1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
1. Prepare Hot Roll Mix using the Pizza Crust recipe on the side of the box. You will have 1 extra crust, or you can double the topping if you choose to make 2 pizzas.
2. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Sprinkle a large pizza pan with cornmeal. Roll or pat dough out on a lightly floured surface until it is the diameter of the pizza pan; place on pan.
3. Spread dough with sauce (you won't use the whole jar), then sprinkle with garlic. Cover with cheese. On top of the pizza, arrange cooked chicken, green pepper, onion and tomato.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until dough is baked, cheese is melted and toppings are slightly browned.
Now isn't that a pretty pizza?

That is one yummy looking pizza for sure! It's supper or dinner at our house, but usually supper. I think that's the English/Scottish heritage coming through. I'm glad you did that post on copyrights - it's something we all need to be reminded of now and again. I think if everyone had to design and produce a prototype and pattern just once, that would be the end of the infringements that happen; pattern-making is one heck of a lot of work!
