Eat, Drink, Bachelor: Week 4 – Boston Cheese Party Pizza Recipe

cheese pizza

I’ve been on a huge cheese kick for the last six months or so, picking up a new one to try every time I went to the grocery store. As it turns out, I went kind of overboard and some of the cheese was starting to go back before I could finish it. (RIP truffle cheddar from Seattle, Great Hill Blue, and 3 year Grafton.)  Like any good girl boss though, when faced with this problem, I came up with a solution: throw it all on a pizza together. Boom. Boston Cheese Party.

Eat, Drink, Bachelor: Week 3 – Hot Italian Sausage & Ricotta Pizza


After cooking a few different things for weeks 1 & 2 of The Bachelor, I decided to get back to my pizza roots. Based on the assortment of food in my fridge, hot italian sausage and ricotta pizza was the winning recipe. All I needed to grab was the dough and ricotta, so this was both delicious AND kind of frugal. (I’m guilty of spending $40 in the name of cooking one meal because I needed to buy ALL of the ingredients.) Buckle up, grab a glass of Merlot, and keep reading for the recipe and Bachelor recap!

Eat, Drink, Bachelor – Week 1 Recap: Buffalo Chicken Dip Mini Calzones

Welcome to a new Pizza Blonde series – Eat, Drink, Bachelor! I’ve been doing this for a few seasons, but now it’s time to make a blog out of it. Every Monday night I will drink wine, cook up a new recipe, watch The Bachelor, and recap the show and food for you. Why not, right? It’s my blog and I’ll do what I want.

To kick off Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor, I got cozy with some red wine and decided to wing it (pun not intended) making buffalo chicken dip mini calzones. They were supposed to be more like the little “bomb” food items you see in Tasty videos, but like I said, I was winging it and they ended up a little bit bigger. Ultimately it doesn’t matter because my mini buffalo chicken dip calzones were DELICIOUS.

Just in time for me to get the buffalo chicken dip mini calzones in the oven baking, the show started. First off – I hate how much time we spend on these little Bachelor alumni pow wows before every new season starts. I know all of the advice they want to give. I know Nick’s backstory. And Sean, don’t you have something better to do by now? Anyway, FOURTH TIME’S THE CHARM!

Spoilers ahead, duh.

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

On football Sundays, when we spend 10 hours rooting for our fantasy players, there is nothing I love eating more than buffalo chicken dip. Yes, even more than pizza. Obviously I love pizza as a football food too, but buffalo chicken dip is a special treat that I can’t justify eating any other time because it is so unhealthy. Of course, that’s also what makes it so delicious. My homemade buffalo chicken dip is pretty damn good, so I thought I’d share the recipe!  Continue reading
