Looks great! I'm a veggie pizza lover.
Only change I would make is to use fresh sliced jalapenos or serranos, as I don't like the pickled ones due to salt content. Have you ever used dried tomatoes, they're delicious on pizzas. When we eat pizza, I always jack my alloted two slices up with lots of Thai ground red pepper. I have found in my older age that eating one sliced serrano per day makes your digestive track regular as train schedule. (They are dirt cheap in grocery store, although Lannie, I'm sure, grows her own!) Lannie,
somehow we all knew you would be a pizza maker!
You probably bake your pizzas in an authentic Sioux clay earthen oven you made on your back lot, hopefully not using dried cow dung as oven fuel? (like in India) How to Make a Clay Earthen Oven & Use in 24 hrs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJKxQ9YC7N4 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dry_dung_fuel Pull quote from article: "Dung cakes", made from the by-products of animal husbandry, are traditionally used as fuel in India for making food in a domestic hearth called a Chulha."
No, no dung fires, but that's not a bad idea! We have PLENTY! And I bake my pizzas in my boring old gas oven in the kitchen. No time to build a clay oven, and besides, the wind/rain/snow would destroy it anyway.
About the only thing that DOES grow reliably well here are hot peppers. Summers here are like Mexico. Winters are like Siberia. This is where Mother Nature has her tantrums.
Of course, your spelling makes it difficult to tell whether your word choice was on purpose or not, but I can't resist this one...yes, certain bodily changes do happen when it is cold outside.
Aw, c'mon, that was from Christmas Vacation, where Chevy Chase is in the department store being flustered by Elle McPherson (I think that's her name). Yes, I have seen too many movies. Don't EVEN get me started on Monty Python, LOL!
OK Chicken friends...
As of tomorrow AM I will be incommunicado
Talk to you in a month.
Wish me well. I hope all goes well with you....
Good luck, John.

I was out in the coop yesterday and Kenny barked. Mister said, "Are they barking"? I said, "No, that's Kenny learning to crow". LOL
Finally! Someone is using the roosting bars!
The funniest thing is a young rooster learning to crow. The first time I heard one, I thought someone was strangling a goose or something! ROFL! Now whenever I hear them I stop what I'm doing and just smile.
I made the BEST (and stupidest) dinner last night. It's been cold, and I was craving starch and carbs, so I sliced up some potatoes and par-boiled them, then made a nice cream sauce with homemade chicken stock as the liquid, added some re-hydrated dried veggies and herbs, chopped up celery and ham, mixed it all together and stuck it in the oven for a while to meld together. It was SOOOOOO good, but we both ate way too much (because it was soooo good!), and ended up having a sugar crash right about the time we had to go out for evening chores. Not to mention, I ate until I was about to bust, instead of stopping when I was no longer hungry. Of course, I had to go fetch the calf last night because he wasn't ready to go to bed yet, so I ended up walking "a bit" and part of the time he had me in a jog, trying to head him off before he made it back to the trees. Luckily, he's still a bit spooky, so I jumped up and down and waved my arms and scared him back toward the barn. The older cows are wise to my ways, and my crazy act doesn't usually work on them, but he's still young and stupid, so I finally got him in.
Anyway, I probably gained five pounds last night, and we do have leftovers, but tonight I will dish up HALF what I did last night and hopefully I'll still be able to walk afterward.
