Flag Pizza

Flag Pizza

What’s better than pizza? A patriotic flag pizza, of course! Baked in the shape of a flag with pepperoni slices for stripes and purple potatoes for the sky, you’ll find yourself saluting with every slice.

Ingredients

 

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place potatoes into a pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and slice potatoes into 1/4-inch rounds.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Unroll the refrigerated pizza crust and spread it out in the baking sheet to fit to the edges. Brush the crust with about 1 tablespoon olive oil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden and slightly set, about 7 minutes.

  • Arrange pepperoni slices on a paper towel-lined, microwave-safe plate. Microwave pepperoni on high until heated through, about 30 seconds.

  • Spread Alfredo sauce over the baked crust; top with Italian cheese blend. Arrange potato rounds in the top left corner of the pizza, forming the blue portion of the flag. Brush potatoes with remaining olive oil. Place mozzarella ball halves on top of the potatoes to resemble the stars of the flag. Arrange pepperoni slices, slightly overlapping, in rows across the pizza to resemble the stripes on the flag.

  • Bake pizza in the oven until the crust is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

Cedar Planked Salmon

Cedar Planked Salmon

This is a dish my brother prepared for me in Seattle. It is by far the best salmon I’ve ever eaten. I like to serve it with an Asian-inspired rice and roasted asparagus.

 

Ingredients

 

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Soak the cedar planks for at least 1 hour in warm water. Soak longer if you have time.

  • In a shallow dish, stir together the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, green onions, ginger, and garlic. Place the salmon fillets in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to one hour.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Place the planks on the grate. The boards are ready when they start to smoke and crackle just a little.

  • Place the salmon fillets onto the planks and discard the marinade. Cover, and grill for about 20 minutes. Fish is done when you can flake it with a fork. It will continue to cook after you remove it from the grill.
