How to make a 5 minute pizza.

eDSC_1234.jpg

So you’ve just hauled your sorry behind home after a late night of partying and you’re STARVING! One of my brothers’ favorite after-kegger snacks was a piece of white bread with Lawry’s Seasoned Salt sprinkled over it. You could try that, but I wouldn’t advise it. Weissensteinburg’s 5 minute pita pizza on the other hand…. well, you don’t have to be lit up like a Christmas tree to find it tasty. To throw one together you’ll need the following:

  • 1 pita bread
  • a jar of pizza sauce
  • mozzarella cheese
  • other toppings you might have on hand, if desired
  • a toaster oven, or regular oven
  • a small cutting board
  • a spoon
  • a pizza cutter

How To: Turn a Pringles Can into a Macro Photography Tube.

Not a focusing tube, not a light restricting snoot, but an actual lens for brilliant close-up photography. I guess the lack of lens makes the depth of field a sweet-spot/luck of the draw deal. Get it where it’s best, and it’s amazing. Via.

Ingredients:
A brown paper lunch bag
1/4 cup popcorn
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Microwave
Serving bowl
