Homemade Pizza and California Citrus Salad

To make yummy pizza at home, start with a pizza crust from your favorite recipe (or a store bought crust). Our favorite pizzas are BBQ Chicken, Veggie, "Award Winning Pizza", or pepperoni. Tonight, we're having BBQ Chicken and Pepperoni/Cheese. The California Citrus salad recipe comes from a high school friend of mine, who came to dinner with her husband a few week's ago - so yummy!

Baker's BBQ Chicken Pizza
bbq sauce
grilled, diced chicken
cooked, crumbled bacon
chopped greeen onions
shredded cheese (we prefer cheddar on this pizza)

Layer in the order listed above. Bake on a pizza stone at 500 degrees for 8-10 minutes. (If you are using a store-bought crust, obviously, follow their baking instructions.)

California Citrus Salad
1 head of lettuce, torn
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
pecan brittle (or just pecans)
1 apple, diced
1 avocado, pitted and diced
green onions, chopped
blue cheese crumbles

Just toss it all together until the proportions look good to you!

Honey-Citrus Dressing
2 Tbsp orange zest
3/4 C Orange Juice
1/2 C lime juice
3 Tbsp honey
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp red pepper

Shake really well, or whirl it up in your food processor.
