There are a ton of benefits to my job and it seems like I’ve been enjoying more than usual lately!
First of all I know about all the sales, deals, and promotions coming up. Which meant that on Friday I got two cases of mangoes for about $12. That is INSANE.
Secondly, I was able to achieve my year-long dream of being immortalized in a sandwich:
Anyways, getting back to the mangoes. I literally could not freeze, eat, or cook them fast enough before they started to lose their perfect taste. Even though I was using my new nifty trick: cut the sides of a mango so you have two ‘cheeks’ and then scoop it out with a glass cup. UM WHAT? How did I not know this?
Anyways, I had a lot of mangoes to play with and decided to make one of my favorites: fruity pizza.
I made some dough from scratch and then added:
- A guacamole base
- Fava Bean Tops
- Sliced onion
- Mangoes (perfectly ripe ones)
- Slivered almonds- pizza’s are always better with different textures!
- Dried Oregano
- Fresh Cilantro
Finally I drizzled it with balsamic reduction which I made by boiling:
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 clove garlic
Once it came to a boil I let it cool and drizzled it over the pizza and cooked at 420 for about 15 minutes.
It was…amazing. Definitely top 5 pizzas I’ve ever made. Rich is going back for thirds as I write this.
