Menu Plan for Fall I: Week 6, Sunday

Salami Pizza
Fresh Fruit

Cooking time:  35 - 60 minutes for menu       Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

            One last pizza, while we can still get some decent tomatoes.  This is closer to an American-style pizza.  Substitute pizza sauce for the fresh tomatoes, if you prefer.... And a purchased crust for the homemade.  This will be our last pizza for awhile.  Depending on appetite, have some fresh, seasonal fruit on hand for dessert.  Some sliced figs or apples, with a bit of cinnamon and ricotta?

Pizza with Salami

Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes, if you make the crust from scratch
                               35 minutes if you buy the crust

    I prefer to use paper-thin sliced tomatoes rather than traditional pizza sauce.  If you'd prefer sauce, 8oz (250gr) should cover nicely.  We get wonderful salami, but pepperoni, chorizo, or other sliced, spicy sausage would be equally delicious.
