Kitchen Memory: Wimpys from Caserta Pizza

In my younger days I used to live on Federal Hill in Providence and often (more than I frankly should have) went to Caserta Pizza for a spinach pie they called a "Wimpy Skippy" for some reason. They are a piece of pizza dough slathered with a helping of very overcooked spinach seasoned with olive oil, garlic and black olives with a liberal amount of pepperoncino (crushed red pepper). I have tried to make them myself and I could never get the technique right. Well, I was just dying for one of those damned things so I thought I'd look on the good old Internet and see if anyone had posted a recipe for them and sure enough I found one. So I whipped up a batch of those tonight and have just wolfed one right down. Delizioso! The method is below as well as the recipe. Make these.. You'll love them!

Mix the filling ingredients and schmear it on 1/2 of the dough

Cover with the other half of the dough, brush with olive oil and bake

After first bake, open the dough and allow to cool completely

Top with mozzarella and pepperoni, leave flat and bake again

After they come out of the oven fold over the dough again, leaving the spinach filling on the bottom

(I baked mine again for 5 minutes to crisp them up)

The finished product and tastes as good as I remembered too!

Born Again Abstinence Spokes-Douche Bristol Palin Has Second Out-Of-Wedlock Child


America’s most prominent unwed and highly-paid abstinence spokesbilly has spawned for the second time. 

Bristol Palin has given birth to a baby daughter, Sailor Grace, seven months after she called off her engagement to marine Dakota Meyer, who took to Twitter to at last confirm that he is in fact the father of Bristol’s second child.

Announcing the happy news on her Instagram account on Christmas Eve, the 25-year-old daughter of former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin revealed that she welcomed the baby on Wednesday December 23, one day before her due date.

‘My sweet Sailor Grace was born yesterday, our family couldn’t be more complete,’ she wrote alongside a picture of herself cradling the newborn in her hospital bed.
