I don’t think I’ve met a jarred pizza sauce I don’t like, but my favorite is Simply Balanced Organic Pizza Sauce found at Target, followed by Mid’s Pizza Sauce. The key to a yummy flatbread is not going overboard on the sauce. Keep it thin so it doesn’t ooze out everywhere with each bite. 😋Quick & Easy Three Cheese Flatbread Pizza | Culinary Craftiness

Whenever I’m frying bacon (a job I royally despise), I try to make plenty of extra to have on hand. Store it in the fridge in a baggy for up to a week. This pile was from Sunday breakfast – a meal I rarely ever prepare. Since the people in my house are usually working or off on adventures on weekend mornings, I do up delicious breakfast dishes for supper on a regular basis. Last Sunday was a rare event and called for bacon and Jimmie’s scrumptious scrambled eggs. Deeelish!

Back to the pizza… Do you remember the Priazzo pizza Pizza Hut had on their menu Quick & Easy Three Cheese Flatbread Pizza | Culinary Craftinessback in the 1980s? It only lasted 4 years because customers didn’t like how long it took to make. But Jimmie and I loved that pizza! It had 3 layers of crust separated by meat and lots of cheese. It was the first time I’d ever had cheddar cheese on a pizza and it gave the Priazzo a deeper, richer taste.

I don’t always use cheddar on my pizzas. It all depends on which flavor profile is calling out to me. If you’ve not tried cheddar, give it a go with a nice sharp mixed with a really good whole milk mozzarella. Add parmesan for a truly spectacular mouthful of yum!
