Popcorn, Pizza, & Football

I have been (trying) watching College football games for past couple weeks and its starting to grow on me slowly but I can’t decide if I am more excited about the games or the food.
We will talk about that later. 
Now, lets just focus on these air-popped popcorn prepared with salt & pepper. 
If done right aka not smothered in butter/oil, popcorn can be a very healthy snack option providing only about 30 calories per cup. But common who eats only a cup? On a bright side, its 100% whole grain, packed with antioxidants & fiber. 


and next I will tell you the best part about watching football- Dough Master’s amazing homemade pizza, also by far the best pizza crust I have ever had. Seriously.

Its crunchy on the outside and very soft, chewy on the inside, everything I want in a crust. 


The crust uses same recipe as these spicy chicken buns.

..Dough Master did an amazing job at rolling & flattening the crust

good pizza calls for delicious sauce..

you can use home-made sauce of your choice but in case if you are little short on time: use Pregos Roasted Garlic & Herb as the starter for the base. Then, sauteed some chopped red onions & tomatoes in a sauce pan and added the Pregos Sauce, letting it simmer in medium heat for 8-10 minutes until it thickened a little bit. This makes a great-chunky pizza base. Adjust salt & pepper as necessary. 


now comes the main part- toppings. serious decision time. 

I like minimalist pizza. Too many toppings can complicate things for me.  I like to keep it as simple as possible- just some onions, tomatoes, olives and lots of part-skim mozzarella cheese!

But its totally up to you to keep it simple or complicated..

once the toppings are done, bake @ 475F for 15-18 minutes or until cheese melts completely

Are you more interested in football or food?

    Haha I am definitely more into food than football! I don’t really understand the rules of American Football! After living in London, football to me means “soccer!” I used to be all about the the toppings but I have started to appreciate more simple pizzas lately- less is more :)!

      I dont understand American football either that much but I do enjoy the whole game day spirit because of food i guess :) I agree with the simple better- less is always better in this case
