pizza in your beard

The weekend was cold and snowy. We got buried under another solid 8 inches of snow on Saturday. I'm itching to run, but a good morning hike and a day spent driving around West Virginia yesterday is almost as good.

The best way to end that kind of day? Homemade gluten free pizza with lots of veggies and non-off-brand cheese.
Made with Bob's Red Mill GF pizza crust mix. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but Bob's website claims the mix makes "light, crispy, delicious crust." Delicious, yes. But my crust turned out kind of heavy and hearty. In retrospect, I probably should've formed a ridge around the edge for the sauce and toppings to sit in. Montana called it (affectionately, I hope) "solid Rocky Mountain crust."
 Questionable crust thickness aside, it was some fabulous pizza.

While we were eating, we heard the fire station next door clank and whistle awake. Sirens bleated and the trucks coughed to life to trundle off somewhere. I just shrugged and kept shoving pizza into my face.

A couple hours later, a text and a picture of a building with flames spitting out the windows.

Apparently a freak fire destroyed the entire ski lodge at the only 5-star resort in town. Nobody was hurt, but the building's just a pile of rubble.

Bummer. There's finally enough snow to ski, and now there's no ski lodge to speak of.

At least we've got pizza.


  1. Next year, let's make more house pizzas together. nom nom nom. I miss you and can't wait to hear about New Zealand (today I ate a raspberry licorice that was made in New Zealand and it was delicious). Cheers!

    1. Yesssss we should.

      I hope you're enjoying all your scones over there. I think it's a healthy addiciton, so I'm not planning an intervention for your scone love.
