It’s pizza, as a burrito. Nothing bad about that.
This dish of my own design sounds strange – so much so that Albert wasn’t sold on it and chose to eat the previous night’s leftovers instead – but it tastes so good. Once Albert smelled it and saw me eating it, he regretted his decision to pass.
I went with one of my favorite pizza combos: sausage and mushroom. First sauté crumbled Italian sausage and sliced button mushrooms in a pan. When they are about browned and done, add some marinara – just enough to coat the meat and mushrooms. It’s not making a sauce for pasta so you don’t want to much of it in there. While it’s cooking I made some brown rice, because it’s not a burrito without rice. I used the Birds Eye Steamfresh so it was ready to go in four minutes. Oh, the miracle of the microwave.
Then assemble: put some rice in a tortilla, top with the sausage/mushroom/marinara mixture, and then sprinkle shredded mozzarella over that. Roll it all up and voila: you’ve got yourself a pizzarito. I’m not even kidding when I say I think this is a craze that could sweep the nation.
