Bisou is always a sweetheart but this past week she’s been extra attentive, staying by my side around the clock while I’ve been laid up with a sprained back. I’ve gotten behind on work and chores but it’s hard to feel bad about my lack of productivity when all that time’s been spent bonding with my girl! Food is Bisou’s love language, so I made her an extra special treat to show her how much she means to me: a cat pizza!!!
The crust is borrowed from my cat cookie recipe, but instead of topping the potato starch and canned food base with cookie chips, I added a bunch of savory cat bites. Catnip takes the place of the spinach I’d throw on a human pizza, kibbles look like tiny pieces of sausage and the bonito flakes are like crispy strips of bacon! Since the pizza was made exclusively of things Bisou loves, I knew I wouldn’t have any trouble getting her to eat a slice. I did not, however, predict just how much she’d love it! She probably would have eaten the whole pie, crust and all, if I’d let her. Read on if you want to see Bisou nibbling on a pizza slice – cutest thing ever!
Our big move to our first house is coming up next month, which means a bit of a chaotic and confusing time for Bisou. I think I’ll bake her another pizza then to make all the changes easier to handle and, if it’s warm enough, maybe even some cat popsicles to keep her hydrated for all the stair sprints she’s going to do! It’s been a couple years since we’ve lived in a place with stairs and I know she misses them. Seriously, this cat loves stairs!
I’m excited, too, for all our upcoming house adventures and will be sharing progress on our fixer upper here and on Instagram. I’m betting I won’t have much time or energy on my hands for cooking once we move, so there are a lot of pizzas in store for P and me too! And if you have any DIY home wisdom to share, I’m all ears.
Homemade Cat Pizza
- 1/2 cup wet food
- 2/3 - 1 cup potato or corn starch
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup bonito flakes
- 1 Tbsp kibble
- 2 tsp catnip
Preheat oven to 300º F.
Process the wet food, starch and eggs in a blender until smooth. The mixture should have the consistency of thick pancake batter; add more starch a spoonful at a time if it's too thin.
Grease a 6-inch skillet with the olive oil, pour the batter in and smooth with a spoon.
Bake 5 minutes until the batter is just set. Add toppings and continue baking 10-12 minutes until the batter is cooked through.
Cool, slice and serve. Refrigerate leftovers up to a week.
