GAAHHHH I KNOW!
Who in their right mind wants to give up pulled pork, pork chops, country ham, BACON??!! BACON of all things?!
He told me he watched something on tv that made him think he should give it up.
Now, I'm all for personal choice, as long as it doesnt interfer with my meal plans. Nobody likes a quitter.
We already don't eat a lot of red meat so now taking out the "other white meat" perplexes me slightly.
When its pizza night we have pepperoni, bacon, sometimes ham, what the heck?! I can't use any of those anymore.
Mr. BM, I love you, really I do, but your whimsical ideas of just "stopping pork" really bugs me! Just sayin.
Last night was pizza night. My usual ingredients cast aside like an old toy a child no longer cares about. I have to come up with a new toy.
Now I like chicken on my pizza but the boys usually turn their noses up at it because theirs has BACON on it and mine has spinach. Not this time, or any other time from now on, you'll have no more pork.
Thank your father kid.
I didnt miss it, I love chicken. And what I love more than that is pesto and chicken.
Its going on the pizza, yes indeed it is.
So goodbye porkalicious pies, the other white mean now invades your territory, drops its flag and owns it.
PETA better not infect his head or else we are all in trouble!

Pesto Chicken Pizza
8-9 chicken fillets, cubed
1 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
1/4 Spanish (red) onion, thinly sliced
fresh basil leaves
Cut up your chicken into pieces (cubes or strips) and toss with the granulated garlic.
In a pan with a touch of oil (I used bacon fat - he didnt say I couldnt use that part of the pig!) cook the chicken until the pink is gone. Set aside while you stretch out your dough (roll it) to fit your pan.
We don;t have a pizza stone so I use the back of a cookie sheet with a little cornmeal.
Spread on your pesto, add onions, chicken, mozzerella and torn basil leaves.
Toss in a preheated 425 F oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the crust is to your liking.
We are a thin crispy crust fam
