White Pizza and Marky's Mark

As if we didn't have enough projects going on in our house, which is not unusual at any given day, my husband has decided to build us a custom island / eating bar for our BBQ.  This means two things:  my patio is very messy and will look like a construction zone for a few weeks and in those few weeks that also means no grilling from my husband....very unfortunate on both of those points.

Really missing our BBQ right now.
I have made it a lifelong goal to never learn how to grill, because if I learn how to grill then I too will be grilling.  I have enough going on typically inside the kitchen, let alone trying to deal with watching what's going on outside.  Besides, if I learn how to grill, then I would probably start showing up my husbands grill'n skills (we tend to get a little competitive around here).  As we know, he can get a little distracted, especially while with his brother..

His only saving grace is he invented a new summer drink for us.  We were both too tired to venture out to the store for beverages, so we did a pantry/refrigerator purge and came up with a really great new cocktail.

a splash of Cranberry Juice
Since the BBQ is on hiatus, we fired up our pizza stone and recreated one of our favorite pizzas from back in the day when we first met.  On special occasions we would frequent a restaurant called Paoli's.  The most unbelievable White (Alfredo Sauce) Pizza you could possibly imagine.  Trust me, once you have had alfredo pizza you will never want red sauce again.....

1 stick butter
1 cup heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups freshly grated Parmesan

In a saucepan or skillet over low heat, warm the butter and cream. Season with salt and pepper.
Place half of the Parmesan into a large serving bowl. Pour the warm butter/cream mixture over the top.
Add the other half of Parmesan cheese as desired to taste.
