Monsieur Tofu felt that his first battle with Mr. Bacon was unfair. “How could ze contest be fair? Ze restaurant served ze bacon dipped in ze batter and zen fried! I cannot compete under zese conditions!”
So last night, I fired up the XL Big Green Egg and got it going to about 600 degrees, and sliced up some fresh mozzarella, on-the-vine tomatoes and Vidalia onion. The dough wasn’t my own, since I thought it was going to be raining all weekend, but we used Trader Joe’s ($1.19 for 2-3 pizzas). It’s a decent alternative when in a pinch. After baking, some basil was added for a finishing touch.
The pizza got baked in about 7 minutes, and the results were quite tasty!
How did Monsieur Tofu fare?
For their second battle, Mr. Bacon grabbed his chest and fell over, in a reverse heart attack, from having nothing even remotely bacony near the pizza!
M. Tofu takes the win, bringing the battle total to 1-1. However, I think it’s bad form to gloat, considering that this is a barbecue household. Will Mr. Bacon bounce back? Most likely, but stay tuned to find out!
