Ten on Tuesday

Ten on Tuesday: Let them eat… pizza!

Nothing like a ToT to get back in the blogging swing after vacation… it's more difficult than I anticipated.

Ten on Tuesday: 10 Favorite Pizza Toppings

Not that I'm eating much pizza these days. It's never been the staple at our house that I know it must be at others'. We've eaten most of our pizzas watching football games at my mother's house over the past few years. There have been entire off-seasons without, and that first bite in fall is as good as anything!

So, with that, let me first say that it all begins at the bottom… and I'll have mine on thin crust, crispy on the edges, maybe even with some burned-y parts!

1. Sauce — just a bit of good tomato sauce or even alfredo.

2. Cheese — not too much.

3. Mushrooms.

4. Sausage.

5. Olives — ripe and/or green.

6. Spinach.

7. Artichoke hearts.

8. Chicken.

9. Potatoes.

10. Wild rice.

There was a time when sausage and mushroom was the ONLY pizza for me!

I had potatoes on a gluten-free pizza with Margene in Salt Lake City about a year ago… and, well, you know I've never met a potato that I didn't like.

We went to Sven & Ole's on our last night in Grand Marais (this is skipping way ahead on the vacation travelogue) as per the recommendation of just about anyone who's ever been! We had the Shicken & Vild Rice Zah because I just had to see what having wild rice on a pizza was all about! And it was good.

So, here we are at the coffee shop on Sunday morning as we headed out. Rusty's got our coffee for the week, I have some tea for the road, and Ali snapped the photo. We didn't realize how well our outfits matched until then, and it made us laugh.

Our destination was the north shore of Lake Superior (which would be the south shore of the northeast part of Minnesota) – specifically, Grand Marais, MN — with stops planned (and unplanned) on the way there and back.

If you'd like to know more about our (pretty laid-back) adventures, or see a few of the 100+ photos (just on my phone) I took mostly of the water and sky, stay tuned!

  1. You keep your pizza simple and that works for me. I’m jealous about Seven and Ole’s, I think I’d feel right at home there. Can’t wait to hear more about your vacation.

  2. I’m a NY pizza lover- thin, soft, flavorful crust, sauce, lots of cheese, maybe some meatball or mushrooms but plain is just fine. Anywhere else the pizza needs toppings because otherwise it has no flavor.

  3. looking forward to the travel recap – especially if there are more matching outfits 🙂
    on the pizza front, I love the idea of potato as a topping. and wild rice? I just might need to bump off one of my top 10 to make room.
    (welcome back!)
