Pizza is on my mind. Maybe it is because it is on the list of things I can’t have very much of. Maybe that is also why an ad on television for Papa Murphy’s “cowboy pizza” recently got my attention.
Papa Murphy’s makes a good pizza. We celebrated New Year’s with one of their pizzas. If my cardio nutritionist reads this, I didn’t eat it all at once. The pizza we had was great but not the cowboy one.
Cowboys and pizza? Hmmm. Cowboys and Indians maybe but I doubt that the cowboys were cooking up pizza over the open fire out on the range. It seems they did like beans if you remember the scene from Blazing Saddles.
If they did in fact have pizza, they probably didn’t use the same ingredients that Papa Murphy uses. Their version contains “three cheeses topped with pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, black olives and herb & cheese blend.”
What would the cowboys have put on theirs? Maybe some buffalo or some varmint. (What the heck is a varmint? Sounds like a new blog post in the making)
Time for me to go have a salad.
