4th Of July Dinner

After all the cooking I did for the shelter yesterday, I had nothing for us to eat.  So, though it wasn't typical 4th of July food, I made a couple of pizzas.
This was a white pizza with mushrooms. We drizzled it with truffle oil before we ate it.

 And I just made a plain cheese pizza too.  You can find the dough recipe here:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2013/03/pizza-dough-recipe.html

As a special treat for The Blog Tech and his father, I made them banana splits.  They are a perfect 4th of July treat!

I made strawberry and pineapple topping from fresh fruits.  They got a scoop of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla ice cream, chocolate and butterscotch sauces, whipped cream and a cherry on top.  And sprinkles, you have to have sprinkles.  The room fell silent and all I could hear was the scraping of spoons on the bowls.

That's so funny we almost had pizza yesterday too. But at the last minute went with chicken instead. YOUR pizza looks yummy. Especially the mushroom with truffle oil. And the banana splits must have disappeared in 5 seconds flat.

Banana split must be the most known dessert in the world and it's much the same ingredients where ever one is in the world :-) I love it :-)

I eat one or two pizzas every year and I felt that it's time for one now when I saw Yours :-)

I think I'll have one next time I go to town :-)

Have a great day!

Pizza looks so yummy! We just found some no nitrate pepperoni I need to try, Kevin cannot have nitrates so we haven't had pepperoni in a decade or more. Those banana splits look amazing! Was my moms all time favorite dessert :)
