Long Read. What went wrong in Texas?  How to help Texans recover from disaster.

This summer, I was introduced to the gloriousness of Detroit-style Pizza.  If you love pan pizza, you will fall hard for this crispy, deliciousness.  This recipe from A Cozy Kitchen is a great option.  We’ve also made this one from King Arthur Baking (though with the sauce under the cheese), and it is delicious.

If you want a fun weekend meal to make on date night, definitely try this salty, crispy, perfect pizza.

    Thanks for highlighting how to help Texas right now. Last week is the worst disaster I’ve ever seen hit the state, and as a TexPat, my money and my heart is going out to those in need both now, and shortly in the future (as costly plumbing and electric bills come due…) Thanks for using your platform to highlight that need!

    Oh my gosh that pizza! I love deep dish pizza but am always overruled, this looks like a great way to make my style at home, and then make a quick thin crust for the NY Style fans.

    Also, that eating disorder article is a great read, and excellent reminder that the unintended consequences of unsolicited comments on ANYones body are real. Doesn’t matter if you think you’re being complimentary.
