Following a recipe to a “t” isn’t something I normally do, I’m kinda a rebel like that. Usually I just throw stuff in the mix and taste. Until now. Well actually it was when I decided to start this blog. If I want y’all (hey I lived in TX for a few years), to make my stuff, then I gotta give measurements. Hardly can I tell you to “wing it”. However, today I am going to eat my words, as this is a recipe where you CAN just wing it!
Release your inner pizza imagination……go ahead and let it run wild. Stuff these boats with whatever you want! My imagination was limited to the ingredients I had on hand, sausage, black olives and sun-dried tomatoes!
