Celebrating Katy

In the past 2 years, most of my husbands close friends from high school have gotten married (including him, of course). With all of these weddings comes a great blessing for me- their wives. I find it to be luck that all of the wives of that group are wonderful and we all just click. This group of friends has been close for many years, and throughout college people have been added to the group and we have all just developed really close relationships.

In May, we are all excited because we get to celebrate another marriage! Casey, one of the boys of the group, is marrying Katy, who is such a blessing to everyone. All of the men are groomsmen in the upcoming wedding, and so the wives of the groomsmen decided to throw Katy a bridal shower.

We chose the theme “Around the Clock.” This theme allows people to buy many different varieties of gifts, because each person is assigned a time of day, and they buy a gift based on that time of day. At the party tonight Katy received gifts like a waffle maker for 9:00 am and margarita¬†glasses for 7 pm. You could also take the midnight route and buy a gift that is for later at night ūüėČ

 

This was such a fun night! It was wonderful to celebrate Katy. Our menu had breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a midnight snack. I was in charge of “lunch” and so I made mini pizzas. These were frustrating for OCD people, but they ended up being delicious and very easy to eat.

I didn’t really follow a recipe- more like, I saw pictures and just went with it.

Mini “deep dish pizzas”

Whole wheat tortillas/wraps- I made 36 pizzas, which ended up being 9 tortillas

Pizza sauce

Mozzarella cheese

parmesan cheese

mini pepperonis

*optional- crushed red pepper flakes

This recipe really does depend on how much you like of each component. I am not a huge pizza sauce person, so I used less than say- my dad would. I would estimate for the 36 pizzas, I used about a 1 1/4 cup pizza sauce. I used half a big bag of mozzarella cheese, and 4 mini pepperonis per pizza.

Pre-heat oven to 400 and spray a 12 muffin- muffin tin with cooking spray.

Using a biscuit cutter, cookie cutter, can- cut circles out of each tortilla- trying to get 4 circles per tortilla.

Mix the pizza sauce, parmesan cheese, and red pepper flakes.

Place each tortilla on top of a muffin cup. Spread the sauce mixture on top of each “crust.”

Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top of sauce, and place pepperonis, or your choice of topping, over the cheese.

Cook for 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is melty and bubbling.

I know there are few instructions and measurements, but really, it is about what you prefer. These were really easy and simple- if you can get passed the frustration of the tortillas falling into the muffin tins.

But really, happy bridal shower, Katy. We love you! You are a blessing to us all. I am so thrilled for you and Casey!
