Our farmhouse has a strict August rule: no oven between the hours of 2pm-sundown. No fresh baked cookies for after-school snacks. No lasagna for dinner. We are in the process of inventing dinner for breakfast, more details to come.

But for now, I think we most lament pizza for dinner. We love pizza. Thankfully, we found a weekend loop hole. On the occasions where you have a late lunch, which leads to a late dinner, sundown comes before dinner. And the oven embargo can be lifted for a quick minute to make a simple pizza.

This pizza is the laziest. We find the pre-made french bread in the bakery section. The kind already buttered and everything. Then we add some mushrooms, cheese, and some arugula. Quick and delicious, and worth the couple extra degrees.

I understand if you use your sundown oven time for dessert, but this is a worthy contender.


Heat oven to 425.

Slice a handful or so of mushrooms. Place mushrooms on top of pre-made french bread from bakery section.

Top mushrooms with handful of grated mozzarella.

Bake for 8-12 minutes, until cheese is melted and bread is warm.

While pizza is baking, dress 2 handfuls of arugula with a little bit of olive oil and salt.

Remove pizza from oven, slice if necessary, and top with mountain of arugula.
