I've been craving something for forever. FOR.EV.ER. (Sandlot Style). I've been craving some peanut sauce. Any way I can get it. I've had this Jade Peanut Sauce for a long long time and have been dying to use it again. But I didn't want to make a noodle dish... I'm sort of "pasta'd-out" (yes, I know that's not a word). So instead I thought I'd go with a pizza. This pizza is so great because it is so easy to make, super versatile, and quick (and muy delicioso!).
When I was in college, I studied abroad in Rome for a semester (Fall, 2006). I lived with a family--a woman named Elvira and my Italian sister, 11 year old Silvia. Now, I think when most people think of "Italian" food, they think pasta and pizza, and while we did eat those things, my experience of Italian food was much different. Most nights at home, Elvira would make simple things like lentil stew (my first experience with lentils), sauteed spinach, and carrot salad. In fact, just about every night we had carrot salad.
