Iron Chef Pizza Challenge with special guest judge Danny W.!

Two puppies, two kids and Nina (let's be honest, she's a bit of a loose cannon). It's no wonder that we don't normally get guests to Sunday dinner. Sadly, we have to resort to cheap tricks like having Iron Chef challenges to get people to visit. The good news is it totally works!


The entries...




Nina's Tuscan Zucchini and Proscuitto Pizza












Mom went all rebel and did a Chicago Deep Dish Sausage Pizza.















Bill (bill? I know! I was so proud) did a Pepperoni-Surprise Thin Crust. It is way less naughty than it sounds.












Me. plain. (I prefer to call it classic) Someone always has to make something non-controversial at these challenges so that the kids have something to eat.


But what's this?? a dark horse...a COOKIE Pizza from team Danstin (or Judan?)
It looks like it has enough red dye #5 to send a small child into a seizure, but it is impossible to be immune to warm-chocolate chip cookie dough with frosting. Totally not fair. That's like putting crack in your pizza.


Gia makes the ballots--she does a great job. But, judging is hard work. Wine is necessary.

Of course the cookie won (actually they tied with Nina with 10 points).
Good job guys! (though I should warn you Bill is demanding a recount).





Mario says the next challege should be Purina-related.

Actually, believe it or not, there was crack in the cookie pizza. Next week, crack-laden appetizers!

Yeah! Pizza Challenge was great! Any dinner is always more fun when it is a challenge. I really think these challenges are just an attempt to make mom make new, exciting dinners for us....

I'm not sure why the Chicago pizza didn't win. I think the voting was fixed. I'm with Bill. I demand a recount too.
