DIY EATS | Tri-Pepper Triangle Pizza
A month ago my little sister, Sarah, moved home after living abroad for two years, and I could not be more excited to have her back! It’s funny how well we get along, considering we are opposite in pretty much every way, ha! For example, I use the oven to store miscellaneous items (like shoes), and she loves coming up with new recipes in the kitchen. She is always telling me how she can teach me a few easy things to make.
So when Coca-Cola asked me to share a #ThatsGold moment I decided to take my little sister up on an afternoon of cooking, because even if my meal did not win any gold stars, hanging out with my sister is a win in my book.
One thing my sister and I can always agree on is our common love for pizza. So I asked her to come over to teach me how to make a homemade slice so I can prep for our annual Olympic Games home viewing party (and by party, I just mean us pretending to stick the vault landing in my living room). Coca-Cola has been a worldwide sponsor of the Olympic Movement for more than 80 years, and for the Rio 2016 Olympics, Coca-Cola is shining a light on these very moments that are happy, humorous and positive – those times you feel like you’ve won a gold medal!
Whether it’s something small like cooking with a family member, or splashy and exciting! When you do something positive, #ThatsGold.
After a trip to the farmer’s market, we came home with a ridiculous amount of beautiful peppers, which yielded the Tri-Pepper Triangle Pizza. Did we think we were brilliant, yes. Did we use four pepper instead of three, yes…but it’s important not to get caught up on the details. The important thing is that I had such a fun time spending the afternoon with Sarah and now I have all the spices I could ever need, #ThatsGold. AND, my little sister learned how to dice peppers while smiling and to pose while eating pizza, I think she has a new found respect for blogging!
I would love to hear about any #ThatsGold moments you’ve had recently, no matter how big or small. To celebrate your #ThatsGold moment, and to inspire more everyday moments made gold during the Olympics, I’ll be giving away one ultra-special, gold crystal Coca-Cola bottle. To enter, snap a picture of your #ThatsGold moment and share with me and @CocaCola on Twitter and Instagram with the tag #ThatsGold and leave a comment below.
Now check out the recipe after the break!
