Mock Pizza with Spring Onions and Eggs

Mock Pizza with Spring Onions and Eggs (8437)

I don’t know whether I’m going to give Mr. Daniel Young a fit if/when he reads this! Let me start by apologizing profusely if I did, but this mock of a pizza is something I quickly whip up when I’m either in a hurry or when I have run errands all morning and just want to chill out when I return home. Better than grabbing some greasy concoction from anywhere I say. These days I admit I would make soup or the traditional Maltese minestra (a richer version of the Italian minestrone) which fills me up until dinner time, as long as I have made it beforehand. When I slack on the prep, or when only pizza will do – without the time it takes to make a decent dough, I make this or anything similar. Before I go on, as I very often do I have recently posted an updated version of my proper pizza recipe here, so give it a go if you have some time to spare today.

Today I just wanted to share with you some photos I took over these last few weeks. At the start of the summer I bought a couple of Basil plants. At first I wanted to try growing some herbs from seeds but these two beauties were too lovely for me to give them a miss. So I got them and they have been sitting on my windowsill ever since. I have repotted them and they now live in colourful terracotta pots; the first two photos were taken on the day they came home with me. You see, I didn’t want them to die on me before I took some sort of a record. I don’t have green fingers.

Greek Basil (7789)Around three weeks ago J noticed a teeny white flower growing on the Greek Basil plant. I read that these should be disposed of (or pinched off!) but again, looking so pretty they almost asked to be in a picture. So before I chopped its head off, I took a snap. And here it is.

Then I did a kinda *off with their heads* thing. Finally I give you one of my favourite suppers of all, courtesy of these two lovelies which have brightened up this house, until we take good care of them that is…Pizza with Mozzarella and Basil (7874)
