Laptop Lunches #169
The pizza was idea I found on the web somewhere, and it didn't quite work. It was edible, but it needed lots of red pepper flakes to be appetizing, and the leftovers left so much to be desired that I doubt I can face it again. But the basic premise is still good, I think--butternut squash soup as the sauce, topped with caramelized leeks and a strong cheese. Just use better soup. Or an even stronger cheese. I do not know.
However, making rectangular pizzas does make a lot more sense than round ones for lunch packing. That, at least, was a victory.
The other lesson I learned (which really I already knew) is that trimming your own leeks is just not worth the trouble, and I should buy the pre-trimmed version available at one store around here, rather than the huge, un-trimmed ones that take up half my fridge. But I will not rule out leeks. Leeks are worth eating, for sure!
