Atlantic Crossing Day 10 - Pizza Day!

Today was the first day since California that we turned on the oven. All through the tropics we marveled at people who baked cookies, breads, and all manner of baked goods and meats. In the tropics we avoided using the stove top, let alone turn on the central furnace that our oven can be. Mostly we grilled and ate cold dishes. Today, however, the oven went on and we had pizza. It was a white pizza with a Boboli crust. Boboli crusts are great for cruising. Vacuum-sealed, pre-baked pizza crust that lasts for ever.

White Pizza a la Solstice:
1 - Boboli Crust
1/4 cup - Olive Oil
3 cloves - Garlic crushed
1/4 cup - white onion diced
2 cups - Mozzarella grated
1/4 cup - Feta cheese crumbled
1/8 cup - Kalamata Olives sliced lengthwise in half
2 links - Hot Italian Sausage casing removed diced and sautéed

Assemble pie and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until cheese bubbles and browns slightly. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh sliced plum tomatoes.

Today and last night have been slow going. We've been making our way through a ridge of high pressure with very light winds. We ran the engine for 10 hours to the NE to find some wind. Currently we have 9 knots from the NW. The forecast is for increasing winds and we'll be heading east staying south of 36 degrees 30 minutes.

All is well aboard Solstice.
