Spudguns!, it's that time again, when we watch a movie and make something to eat inspired by it. I hosted Foodn'Flix
again this month, and my selection was the 2000 film Coyote Ugly
: Violet wants to be a songwriter like her mother had been, and moves to the city in order to do so. Only thing is, she's got stage fright. The first few nights she's in town, she is robbed. This forces her to look for a job, and ends up working at a popular bar in her neighbourhood. Along the way, she meets Kevin, who works at a diner. They quickly start dating, and he helps her attempt to get over her stage fright.

So I went with the obvious on this one and made a pizza. I started with a basic dough, which can be found in the Joy of Cooking
on page 607.
1/2 c warm water
1 package yeast
3 and a half cups flour
2 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon salt
now, I didn't have any yeast on hand, so I substituted that for a Tablespoon of Baking Powder.
Mix, then let dough rise for about a half hour. Then roll out, or stretch to desired size/shape.
Bake dough on a floured tray for 30 minutes on 375 degrees depending on your oven.
While that was pre-cooking, I made my sauce. I used one can of tomato paste, half a cup of grated parmesan cheese, 2 teaspoons of garlic salt, 1 teaspoon of fresh ground black pepper, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, and water.
I then topped the pizza with black olives, chopped onions, spinach, and cheese. I used both shredded mozzarella, and a nacho cheese blend. I then added another 3 Tablespoons of grated parmesan.
I then baked it at 375dgrees for another half hour.
That's about all I have for you guys, don't forget to come back at the end of the month to see what else this movie inspired people to make. And don't forget, you can join in every month with each Foodn'Flix
host. Next month we've got Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
(Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
if you live outside the states) hosted by Squirrel Head Manor.
Till next time.
