Lunch Box Chronicles: Day Twenty-One (Basil, Tomato and Mozzarella Triangles)

I was supposed to have a quiet day, sending out samples, gearing up for the week, but no...it just can't be that way. Still battling bureaucracy and not happy about it. Had to put my lawyer hat on today to argue about the interpretation of maps and contracts and such. I'd rather have the baker's cap on, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

After putting together my airtight argument (so I think), I decided to leave the computer behind and hang out with Spencer for a bit today. What a nice kid! We went to Yosaku, one of our favorite Japanese restaurants and headed off to Whole Foods to shop. He was thrilled to see that our pizza doughs had sold out in the freezer and were almost gone in the fresh shelf. I told him I needed some ideas for a fitaya, so we went foraging.

He had a hankering for fresh basil (we used Olivia's Garden's from New Gloucester), fresh mozzarella (we went for the Whole Foods brand, though he was really pushing for the brand from Bennington, Vermont - next time), and Backyard Beauty Tomatoes.

Good thing we had Spelt Right pizza dough at home because by the time we left Whole Foods, they were cleared out....

Ingredients: One bag of Spelt Right pizza dough, fully thawed, 1 ripe tomato, a few leaves of Olivia's Garden Fresh Basil, Mini Mozzarella balls. Make 12 small rounds and roll or stretch until thin, but not too thin. Place on lightly oiled baking pan. Place one small mozzarella ball in center add finely chopped basil and tomatoes if desired. Make triangles. Bake at 400-450 for 8-12 minutes until done. These were delicious, but I was too stuffed from dinner out to take more than a bite. Perfect for breakfast tomorrow.
