White Pizza with Garlic Arugula Sage & Red Onion

This recipe is vegetarian & GF…and absolutely delicious!

What you will need:

2 Undi’s frozen pizza crusts

White Sharp Cheddar Sauce

    2 tbsp. GF Flour

    2 tbsp. Unsalted Butter

    1 c. Whole Milk

    1 c. Grated Sharp White Cheddar Cheese

    1 tsp. Fresh Ground Black Pepper

    1 tsp. Salt

1c. Grated White Cheddar Cheese

1/2 Red Onion, thinly sliced

2 Cloves Garlic, peeled & thinly sliced

2 handfuls of Fresh Arugula

1 tbsp. Fresh Chopped Sage

For the Sauce:

Heat the 2 tbsp. flour & 2 tbsp. butter on medium heat, in a medium sized saucepan.

If you haven’t made a rue before, this can be intimidating, but it is actually very easy. Just don’t leave the stove, and continue stirring the mixture intermittently with a wooden spoon.

As the rue continues to cook, it will become very liquid and bubble and it will get more brown in color. As soon as this rue begins to turn light brown, you can add the milk. Keep cooking the mixture until it begins to bubble again. Allow it to bubble for three minutes, stirring occasionally, and then add the cheese, pepper, and salt.

Once the cheese is melted and the mixture is smooth, your sauce is done. Just set it aside to cool for a bit while you prepare your toppings. 

To Assemble Your Pizza:

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Spread a thin layer of the sauce over both frozen crusts, making sure to get the sauce out to the very edge of each crust. Cover the sauce with the cup of shredded cheddar, divided between both pizzas. Add the garlic, red onion, arugula, and sprinkle the chopped sage over the top of your pizzas. Place the pre-heated pizzas in your oven and bake for 30 min. When the pizzas are done, allow them to cool for 10min, then slice and Enjoy!

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.
1.There is a big difference between a roach and a palmetto bug. Real roaches are the guys from New York. They infest, they are spooky smart, they are dirty and nasty, and you have to work really hard to get rid of them. Palmetto bugs however, are big and creepy and dumb. You usually see them outside at night and they will fly right at your face. They don’t infest because they are native and they can’t survive in our AC temps. 2.Every public indoor place will always be frigid. Most of your friend’s houses will be as well. I take a sweater with me almost everywhere that I go, and if I forget to I regret it. 3.Outside of weather emergencies, weathermen are superfluous. In the rainy season, which is most of the time, there is an eighty percent chance of rain, every single day. The weather man has no idea what time it will rain, how hard, or for how long, and there is no way for him to predict it. You just have to go out there with your fingers cr…

The Power Of Willful Ignorance

I watched a woman say these words in a speech a few moments ago and nothing could be more true...willful ignorance is insanely powerful. Willful ignorance is the reason that good German people allowed their neighbors to be dragged off by the Nazis in the middle of the night. It is the reason that American people choose to believe our homeless are lazy and irresponsible instead of facing the reality that their situations have arisen because of widespread mental illness and cooperate greed. It is the reason that you will pick up a steak on your way home from work tonight, not bothering to find out where it came from, because you just don’t want to know. The truth is too disgusting.
I have gone on about the meat industry quite a bit and my goal here is not to do that. I love to eat meat, I will state that again, but the example that comes from our consumption of factory meat is so powerful when it comes to explaining willful ignorance that I want to use it. Out of ALL of the many, many,…
