TODAY'S GOURMET RECIPE: DRUNK DAGO PIZZA!
This is a personal favorite of mine and I'd like to share it with you. It really brings together a very common mixture of experiences: a night on the town, dissolute spending, being broke and hungry. It's a natural for us Italians and I'm sure for many of you out there too. I mean, how often can you remember meeting some high maintenance floozy, blowing your entire wad on her and winding up at home with all your credit cards maxed out? Drunk and not a dime in your pocket. Well, you gotta have nutrition and I'll give it to you with this interesting take on an old Mediterranean recipe - Drunk Dago Pizza.
1 bottle of Catsup
2 Slices of Kraft Processed Swiss Cheese
1 slice of Syrian bread (Pita)
Lots of salami or any processed meat fit for eating
Italian Herbs mix
A toaster-oven (not recommended)
Put the pita slice on a paper plate
Slather catsup liberally on your pita
Spread catsup with your index finger on pita
Sprinkle Italian herbs mixture on catsup (optional)
Lay slices of cheese over catsup
Spread slices of processed meat over cheese
Spread some edible vegetables over cheese
Fold and eat voraciously over kitchen sink.
Carefully place completed "pizza" in toaster oven. Warning: You must take into consideration your condition if you are going to use an electrical appliance. Stand there and watch the scrumptious pizza cook under the "Broil" setting. You should make sure your homeowners' insurance premium is paid before trying this dish.
Remove carefully and enjoy over kitchen sink.
Many of my fans have gone home and found no salami or processed meat. You can always substitute tuna fish or creamed herring if you have any. You can also substitute Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Cheeze Whiz for Swiss if you have the physical dexterity to spread it evenly over the catsup. This is a dish for creative people. The only vegetable I don't recommend you use is raw artichoke.
See you next time. Barrio
