Although the famous sitcom ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S’ ended years ago, it still reigns in our hearts as if we saw the first episode just yesterday! In fact, even after all these years, the cast members are celebrated for their iconic roles in the show. Each character has its own quirks and nuances; we are still smitten by Rachel’s beauty, laugh at Chandler’s jokes, and can wholeheartedly relate to Joey when he says, ‘Joey doesn’t share food’! Another one of the most loved characters from the show was Monica Gellar played by Courtney Cox, the perfectionist chef who had made our taste buds tingle many a time with the delicacies she prepared on the show; remember all those Thanksgiving feasts?
Although, Courtney has played numerous roles in different movies and shows after ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S’, we just can’t help but see her as ‘Chef Monica Geller’ whenever she appears on our screens. The excitement is tenfold when we see her in the kitchen in real life. Courtney, who enjoys over 12 million followers on Instagram, is often seen trying new delicacies in her kitchen. However, contrary to the food wizardry that she was known for in the show, Courtney isn’t the best performer in the kitchen in real life. In fact, her cooking sessions are as messy and funny as any of us beginner home chefs. Recently, the actor put up a similar video of trying to make pizza for the first time and it is making us laugh and relate at the same time.
In the video, we can see Courtney trying her hands on making pizza. From making silly mistakes to not rolling a perfectly round base, the pizza video is too relatable! Here is Courtney’s pizza recipe: Courtney starts off by rolling the dough into a thin base, she then pinches the sides to create a barrier on the edges. She plops a good amount of marinara/pizza sauce and tops that with loads of grated cheese. She tops the cheese with caramelised onions, mushrooms, and pepperoni. She then leaves it in a fire oven for 2-3 mins, but you can easily make the same in a tawa by cooking it for 15 minutes. Courtney slices the steaming cheesy pizza and offers it to her crew, which sadly has no takers.
No matter how it looked, we would have definitely tried it. Who can say no to ‘chef’ Monica Geller’s pizza, right? If Courtney has awakened the inner chef in you too, here is a list of easy homemade pizzas that you can try on any given day.
