A taste and a pizza that was always home to me

A taste and a pizza that was always home to me

I lived in the DC area for 5 years.  During that time, I could never a favorite of mine,  linguica and chourico.  Naturally when I returned for visits, I would stock up.  I also love making homemade pizza, and linguica is a great topping.  Here is another great idea for when you pick up some Gaspar’s linguica or chourico:

The Great Gaspar

Pan sear 1 pound of chourico cubed

2 green peppers sliced 1/4 inch thick and halved

1 white onion

12oz of pizza sauce

1 large portabello mushroom

1 cup of your favorite cheese shredded

2 medium or 1 large pizza shell

Slow cook the meat, peppers, and onions to your favorite texture.   Bake pizza shell for 10 minutes.  Cover shell with mixture.  Slice the mushroom into 1/4 inch pieces to over the pizza.  Cover it with cheese.  If you like a little spice, dash some dried habanero pepper. Bake it at 375 until the cheese is melted and pizza crust is golden and crispy.

Enjoy

In the mood for some Linguica

In the mood for some Linguica

One of the many things I missed when I was living in the DC area was Linguica.  Living here in southeastern Massachusetts, you know how easy it is to find, but down there not so much.  I love it grilled, on a pizza, with onions and peppers, or just plain.  Gaspar’s linguica is a great…Continue Reading

Beach or Pool?

Beach or Pool?

So, I’ve found that in the summertime, there are either beach people, or pool people.  I have to say, I’ve always picked the beach. Now, I’ve never had a pool, so maybe I would change my mind if I did.  To me, there really is nothing like setting up a chair, putting my toes in…Continue Reading
