If you’re like us and live in the South, then there probably won’t be too much grilling out for you on this Labor Day thanks to Tropical Storm Lee.
We haven’t gotten too much rain here in Atlanta, just a light sprinkle outside right now as I type away at my computer. I think we’re supposed to get more rain tomorrow, and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for it because gosh… this is the first rain we’ve gotten in about a month! We need it.
Since grilling in the rain usually isn’t too much fun, how about a homemade gourmet pizza?
I love cooking with fingerling potatoes. I just love the different colors and tastes of each color of potato. It makes the whole cooking (and eating) process that much more fun.
This pizza is especially colorful, with the rich fall inspired colors.
And if you’re like me and just don’t have the talent for making great, good or even just decent pizza dough… pick some premade dough from the store. Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have some great pizza dough selections.
Once all of the ingredients are layered on, it’s a quick bake in the oven and we’re ready to eat!
Happy Labor day everyone! I hope you’re doing something fun on this lazy Monday.
