Tomato Fest + Five Points Pizza {East Nashville}

If you live in Nashville, and ESPECIALLY if you live in East Nashville, I really hope you've been to Five Points Pizza. If you haven't, you must. As soon as possible.

Personal Pizzas {Girls’ Night}

So, this isn't rocket science. And really, it's not even a recipe. But I just have to suggest that if you need an easy, inexpensive meal for 2-10 people, you should go with personal pizzas.

This is definitely on it's way to goal #54, create my own signature pizza. First, the dough recipe I found. I cut it… Continue reading Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Pizza (second attempt)
