Pi Day

Yesterday, in celebration of Pi Day (3.14...), I made a couple... pies, that is.  With two guests coming over for dinner, I made pizzas inspired by the day as well as by a new Rioja I just picked up.  Pizza is such a simple weeknight choice that can seem more impressive with a few thoughtful ingredients and a well-executed crust. 

I made an arugula salad with strawberry, toasted almonds, and manchego cheese to accompany two pizzas:  one with salami and sevillana olives (a meaty green Spanish choice), the other with roasted red peppers and goat cheese.  I am happy to have leftovers!
