I try to have one day a week when I do not eat meat. Usually that day is Monday. Often I struggle to come up with a pleasing menu for my meals that day. I’ve done grilled cheese sandwiches, scrambled eggs, a couple of kinds of quiche which use just vegetables and no meat in them, pasta with just tomato sauce, etc. But one of my favorite choices would be pizza — if I could find an appropriate one to buy.
At the supermarket where I normally shop they have what seems to me to be a gazillion brands of pizza … pepperoni, sausage, four meats … with the lowly cheese pizza being the only meatless choice. I even commented to the checker the last time I shopped for pizza there (buying the cheese one) that it would be nice if the makers were more imaginative when it came to toppings. Let’s face it, a pizza is basically an open face sandwich and at least in theory, you could put any number of things on there.
Well, Wal-Mart and Freschetta to the rescue. I don’t often grocery shop at Wal-Mart but yesterday I needed to pick up several items in the store so wandered into the grocery section. Freschetta had a roasted portabello mushroom/spinach/garlic pizza. May I just say it was YUMMY! No more plain boring cheese pizza for me.
