Lazy Person's Bell Pepper Sauce-Based Flatbread Pizza

Lazy Person's Pesto-Based Flatbread Pizza

If you recall, a little while back I showcased the easy - let's be honest, LAZY - steps involved in making the Lazy Person's Pesto-Based Flatbread Pizza. That simple recipe was designed to serve as the foundation for a host of different flatbread pizzas, but all employing the Pesto sauce as the primary ingredient. If you missed that primer, don't fret, I've got you covered. Just click on the recipe link here LPPBFP.

Lazy Person's Golden Rush Bell Pepper Sauce

Recently, I posted the steps in preparing the Lazy Person's Golden Rush Bell Pepper Sauce. It's perfect over, around and through pasta; as a great topper/dipper for beef fondue along with grilled meats, fish and poultry; and, as the key ingredient for another series of flatbread pizzas. Remember that recipe? No? HOW DARE YOU! Just kidding. Click here, LPGRBPS, to review it.

Now that we've gotten the "paper work" out of the way, what do you say we head back into the galley and whip up a whole new line of flatbread pizzas using the bell pepper sauce, in lieu of Pesto, as our flagship ingredient? This new line is called the Lazy Person's Bell Pepper Sauce-Based Flatbread Pizza. Hit the light switch, grab an apron, and away we go.

Wine Pairing: Rosso Piceno DOCVelenosi Vineyards – Ascoli Piceno, Italy -- A brilliant ruby red with a zesty bouquet hinting of forest fruit, strawberries and vanilla. Rosso Piceno DOC has a tangy taste, fruit-forward character and lean flavor. The tannins are slight lending to a fine, aromatic finish in each sip.

Hi Audrey,

Love your lamb shanks.

--- Paul, Scottsdale AZ

Haven't been called Tad for . . .gee, maybe I've NEVER been called Tad . . . guess I'm the only one with chutzpah enough to mention Bourdain. BRILLIANT?

--- Ken, Shutesbury, MA

I think we must have had an entirely different experience in the UK. (Fresh Food and Real Ale – week 1). We were up in Edinburgh and they served something called ‘Neeps & Tatties.’ The items were boiled so long that I couldn’t even recognize what I was eating. Come to think of it… I couldn’t taste them either. Later I found that Neeps’ are Turnips and ‘Tatties’ are potatoes.

--- Lindy, Phoenix, AZ

My mouth was watering as I read some of your descriptions of the fantastic fare of ... England? I had always felt smug about the lowly reputation of British cuisine as this gave us at least one country with a worse culinary reputation than America's. I guess I'll have to change my views. Your article made me actually want to take a CULINARY tour of Britain. Yummy yummy yummy.

--- Sandy Miner, Portland, OR

Thanks for your note. Thanks to Traveling Boy I get to interview a world famous chef this week who is widely recognized as spearheading the Yummy movement in Ireland. Guess I'll have to take yet another culinary tour a little further north and check it out... (I love my job!) --- Audrey

Very interesting, mouth-watering piece by Audrey! (A McDreamy McMeel). Your web site is fascinating!

--- Susie, Victoria, BC

Combining travel, food, and intelligent advice -- BRILLIANT! Your site fills a long-felt need for hungry roamers. Keep it up! It's Anthony Bourdain with reservations and CLASS.

--- Tad, Boston, MA
