Even those of us with the best of intentions ("From now on, I will eat nothing but nutritious meals that I make myself with local, organic ingredients!") sometimes find ourselves in the position where a husband invites a buddy over to help him replace the radiator, and take-out pizza with beer seems the only acceptable compensation. More than a couple toppings can be expensive, though, so as you can see I jazzed my slice up with some arugula from my own fridge. Greens don't keep well for more than a week, so may as well use them while the using is good.
Do you ever put your own toppings on take-out pizza? Is this a sensible way to pinch pennies, or would you bother? And if you do it for culinary rather than monetary reasons, what is your favorite topping that run-of-the-mill pizza joints never seem to have?
Beat the eggs. Whip the cream. Show no mercy.
