When I was unable to participate in Rachel’s last Project Tasteless Challenge, I was upset. The thought of tying one (apron) on and cooking up something tasty delighted me. Mostly because I already how many TWSS jokes it would spurn. However, fate did not allow me to bake naked. I knew, though, it would be on for the next challenge. And here you have it:
Rachel issued this challenge: Create pizza inspired by your costume.
For my costume this year, I thought and thought. And thought some more. Jonathan and I were a couple costume last year, and while I didn’t feel like we had to do that again this year, he suggested that it might be fun. I checked online for inspiration, and I finally settled on something that I could really get behind:
In case you didn’t guess, he went as a boy scout 🙂 Technically, he was a Brew Scout: His sash was covered with beer caps instead of badges. (I was his toasted marshmallow. Seriously toasted; we had a keg.)
I didn’t realize until later that I had most definitely chosen the least sexy, least flattering costume possible 😦 Such is life!
There was an assortment of tasty foods, but after a few drinks, I decided it was pizza time! After all, the only thing better than a toasted s’more is a toasted s’more in the kitchen! So I give you…
- refrigerated pizza dough
- milk chocolate chips
- graham crackers
- mini marshmallows
And that’s all! You’ll need to spread out the crust. It’ll look pretty vulgar:
After you and your friends get your giggles out and make one too many penis jokes, pound that flaccid roll of dough into submission, flattening it out on a pan (we laid down parchment paper). Next you’ll want to crumble up some graham crackers for the next few steps.
While I was making the s’more-gasboard sweet pizza, I asked Craig to take some pictures. Little did I know how thorough he would be…I decided to set up a quick “video.”
(FYI: I tried to set this to some music…but my computer was requesting MP3s, and sadly my MP4s are not compliant?? So much to learn.)
You’ll notice that there weren’t a lot of marshmallows on the far right side…I’m not always crazy about them, and I wanted to be able to opt out if I wanted to. It was pretty tasty!
My guests thought so as well. And if you were wondering…my roomie Reagan went as a Roy Lichtenstein painting. I thought it turned out pretty awesome.
I just wish the chocolate chips would have melted more…but it was a nice take on a traditional s’more!
And in case you were wondering…s’mores can totally get down with the get down.
Or……not. (B y the by, I wasn’t doing the Superman or the Soulja Boy or what have you in that last one. I was, in fact, trying to “dougie.” Where’s Caitlin when you need her??)
Even though it won’t make you a better dancer.
Happy Halloween, everybody!
