I have had the idea of pizza sammies in my mind for quite some time. And today, despite not being hungry at.all (I dined at PF Changs for lunch and completely stuffed myself) I made one.
And it fulfilled my dreams.
I ate every bite, and I wasn’t hungry after the first few.
First, I pulled apart some sweet Italian sausage, and cooked it in a saucepan with a little bit of olive oil.
Then, I took two slices of the Asiago bread (bought for this specific endeavor), buttered the outside, and layered Paul Newman’s Tomato & Basil pasta sauce and nuggets of fresh mozzarella on the inside. Once the sausage was popping and hissing, I added it to the mozz and sauce, closed the sandwich, and smooshed it between the press.
Then, as an experiment, I left Lucy for a few minutes to catch up with my neighbor. She re-paid me by peeing on the floor (about 15 minutes after she peed outside, which was disheartening, to say the least).
But the bottom line is, I made that Pizza Sammie. It’s been a little bug of an idea buzzing around my brain for a few months, and it may sound small, but to me, I wanted to see if it was still pizza-y while maintaining it’s identity as a sammie.
It did. 🙂 Mission Accomplished.
