Valentines Date In

Happy February Friends,

I hope you had wonderful weekend!!  I loved this weekend.  My little sister was home again to rock out at the Soul Cycle Denver/Target pop up (more on that later this week!), there was sunshine, and snow (so typical Colorado) , and some great time with our sweet grandparents!  It was also really nice to be in our home and sit by the fire most of the day Sunday and play cards (I am lame, I know... I love gin rummy if you ever need an opponent).  

Jonny and I get the chance to do some fun things living in this beautiful state, and do our best to take advantage of them, but sometimes it is nice to enjoy being home.  That is why, whenever Jonny and I are celebrating anything extra special my first choice is to have a date night in.

Jonny is not usually much of a cook (although his apron would lead you to believe otherwise).  But pizza making was so interactive, fun, and easy for both of us!  Not to mention, delicious!  We also loved being able to pick our toppings.... Jonny is a big pepperoni guy and I love all the veggies my little pizza could handle.  

I love these pink glittery flutes that I got from Swoozies and I'm sure will use all month long.  I also love our tray from there (we got for our wedding) with all of the areas in Denver!  P.S. I know I am wearing this blouse again, but it just matched my apron so perfectly, I couldn't resist! 

What you need:

  • pizza dough (we used fresh dough from Whole Foods)
  • tomato sauce
  • toppings you love (mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, peppers, onions, pepperoni)

What we did:

  • preheat oven to 500
  • cover area you will be rolling dough with good amount of flour
  • cut dough in half
  • work dough in round(ish) shape
  • add sauce first then toppings
  • slide onto cookie sheet (I read that you shouldn't use one - ours turned out great!)
  • bake for 10 - 13 minutes (until puffy and browned)
  • enjoy!

What fun things do you have planned for Valentines Day?  I'll be sharing our favorite date night spot out soon!
