Quick appetizer plus craft beer, now! I need it. Do you find yourself in this situation now and then? Most of us live in a world where we are very busy. We rush to and from work and struggle to squeeze in errands then chores. Then if we have little ones that we are transporting to and fro, it becomes harder still. And all that is before we have time for play? There are days when a quick appetizer plus a craft beer can save the day.
My need for a quick appetizer plus craft beer runs the gambit and includes having a loved one that may experience a bad case of “h-angry”? H-angry is a special kind of “I am so hungry that I am angry”. H-angry is something that I try to avoid at all costs. Grill-Man’s hypoglycemia kicks h-angry into overdrive. Let’s just say that it is not a pretty thing to watch.
First Quick Appetizer plus craft beer now and later?
No matter the reason, it is good to have a meal trick up your sleeve. Pesto, Sausage, Zucchini, Cheese and Green Onion Pizza will do nicely. Because variations on this recipe are endless, it is easy to select your toppings that you may want.
Most of these ingredients, I always have on hand and could be changed based on pantry inventory. In this recipe I have chosen to use store-bought pie shell in lieu of pizza crust. Before you get your panties in an uproar, here’s why:
- pie crust is always on hand
- easy to use pie crust unrolls easily and allows for time savings
- it allows for a thinner crust which I prefer
- fewer calories per slice
If you’re a traditionalist and want to replace with pizza dough, please do so. The internet will yield lots of homemade crusts. This option will not be as quick unless you opt for the store-bought crust which requires a grocery store trip. Or plan in advance and have dough on hand or in the freezer which requires time to thaw.
Since, Pizza is food that most anyone will eat. This recipe will allow you to hide the zucchini. A sneaky way to introduce a veggie is to place the zucchini on first, then add cheese and other items on top. Mom may have to get creative when introducing veggies to any meal. The earlier you work in the vegetables the better. This does not work for everyone. I am aware that some people just “do not like vegetables”. If that is the case, leave them off or replace with another item.
