Tis BLT Pizza recipe is so easy and quick, you’ll forget all about your favorite take out! www.lemonsforlulu.com

I announced to my family that I was NOT going to cook on vacation.  By definition, vacation means to take a break.  If cooking and cleaning are my job, I should NOT be doing them on vacation right?  Right.  No cooking, zilch, zip, nada.

Yes, I poured milk for cereal and made sandwiches, but not once did I turn on the stove or the oven.  No mixing, no stirring, no serving.  It was bliss.  We dined out each night.  I was waited on and served and did not have to scour or scrub one single dish.  I was living the dream; I was having myself a real vacation.

The problem with this routine was that by day four I was completely tired of restaurant food.  I was craving pasta dishes, sauces and meals prepared with my own two hands!  The thing is, I really like my cooking!  I stuck with my guns however, I continued with my no-cook policy.  I was going to relax and enjoy this time off even if it killed me!

The easiest blt pizza recipe ever! I promise this will make you forget all about take out! www.lemonsforlulu.com Ultimately it wasn’t the craving for homemade food that did me in.  It was the guilt.  It was the massive amount of guilt I was carrying around because of all the money we were spending on restaurant food!  It was a small fortune.  One that would have been avoided if I had just sucked it up and cooked all week!

To compensate July has been declared a no take out month.  No gourmet burgers, no richly sauced pasta, no street food and no upscale pizza, just lots and lots of dishes.  That’s ok.  I’ll take one for the team.  Especially since I have this easy BLT pizza recipe in my arsenal!  Whoa boy this is some good pizza!  It’s better than any take out our family has tasted.  It does take a bit of extra time to roast the tomatoes, but I saved time with the store-bought crust! It’s really a simple recipe that is worth every step!

July has become priceless; it’s become BLT pizza month!
