Brussels Sprouts & Bacon Pizza

Brussels Sprouts & Bacon Pizza

Sometimes when I’m leaving town on a trip, I scatter little post-its around the house for Casey to find while I’m gone. I might also make something special as a little send off, so he can eat something and think of me while I’m away..

Last week I flew up to Seattle to join Joy on her Book Tour and an hour before I left for the airport, I pulled this Brussels Sprouts & Bacon pizza out of the oven. This is one of those special somethings.

I figured I’d give him something delicious & hearty to eat while he was busy missing me. I think it worked.
