My Week in Over-Processed Photos

Happy weekend, everyone! I’ve gotten quite a few new followers this week, so if you’re one of them, welcome. Today’s post is a feature I started a couple weeks ago. It’s where I take a few photos from my real life over the past week, and then I add cool effects so that my life seems more interesting. It’s quite the ego boost; I recommend it.

For anyone who wants the pizza recipe, read on…

First of all, don’t expect recipes to be a regular thing. I am pretty much the opposite of a house wife and cooking is not at all my specialty. But when I do discover that I’m pretty good at making something (and it’s easy), then I get pretty excited and want to share.

I’m especially proud of this pizza because I started with a recipe from a cookbook and then added additional ingredients on my own, which I’m pretty sure makes me a culinary genius. So here’s what you need:

  • Pre-made pizza crust (I’ve tried several brands and they all worked fine)
  • Pizza or pasta sauce
  • Small can of crushed pineapple (drain out the juice as best you can)
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh green pepper, sliced whatever size you like
  • Olive oil
  • Oregano
  • Parmesan cheese (like the kind in the green shaker)

I listed the ingredients in the order that you use them. Take your crust, spread the sauce, layer bits of pineapple, then mozzarella, then green pepper. Drizzle a couple spoonfuls of olive oil, then shake  on the oregano.

Just follow the directions on the pizza crust package for the temperature and time, although mine usually takes longer than they say. I set a timer for 10 minutes and then keep checking until the cheese starts to get slightly browned.

After it’s cooled a little, sprinkle parmesan on top. Delicious! The leftovers aren’t bad either.
