Pizza Stones, Home Made Sauce, And Pork Pot Roast
Yesterday, I made up a batch of pizza sauce...I like to make my own, as no commercial sauce has the flavor I enjoy! I use tomato sauce, dried oregano, dried basil, garlic and onion powder, dried fennel seeds, red pepper flakes, a bit of sea salt, and a little brown sugar. Simmered for about 1-1/2 hrs., it thickens nicely and melds the flavors to a tasty mix... I won't lie- I didn't make the crust for a change! Because of this, I felt compelled to get out my pizza stone... Mine is well seasoned, and no youngster! I was using up cheeses(Swiss, Havarti, Parmesan, and Cheddar!)chopped onion, ham, along with some pepperoni..I won a pizza class once, and was taught more stuff on the pizza didn't make it better, just harder to get done right! We enjoyed this easy to make pie, and the cheeses were a refreshing change from Mozzarella!
Tonight it's a pork butt pot roast..3lbs. of Boston butt, wrapped in aluminum foil, with cream of mushroom soup, dry brown gravy mix, and spices- all sealed in tightly. 3-1/2hrs. at 315F, will make it tender, and in it's own gravy! Probably a side of white rice, to utilize some of that gravy!
