Menu Plan for Fall II: Week 1, Sunday

Salami Pizza
Fresh Fruit

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

      I love making pizza in the fall when I can still get good tomatoes and fresh herbs. 

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.
