An Edible Memory

This week's theme from Carmi at Written, Inc is "edible."

This is a homemade pizza coming out of our oven on New Year's Eve. We have homemade pizza other times of the year, but we don't have New Year's Eve without homemade pizza.

I don't remember how it started, but we've done this for many, many years now. My wife makes the dough, and one or both of us prep the toppings. She shapes the dough and puts it on the peel (previously dusted with something to keep it from sticking - usually matzo meal 'cause we always have that on hand), and she slips it onto the hot, hot, hot stone in the oven.

We like different toppings so we make one pizza each, and then we have plenty of leftovers for the next day or two. We munch pizza while watching the ball drop in Times Square on the TV.

Looks delicious! That is a deep dish crust you can actually feel good about eating.

I can practically feel the warmth radiating not only out of the picture, but also out of your exquisite description of how it all comes together.

Homemade pizza is a staple in our've just inspired me to add it to the week's menu!

Thanks for this delightful TP contribution!
