Or: Clean-Out-The-Fridge Supreme
Some may object to the use of the word “Supreme” in reference to a pizza completely lacking in meat, though. No matter — it was delicious!! We’ve been getting A LOT of zucchini and summer squash in our CSA box over the last month, and we had some potatoes for the past couple of weeks, too, so I thinly sliced one of each for this experiment. I’d read somewhere [no idea] that the trick to getting those kind of veggies to crisp up a little on the pizza is to put them on the crust and bake it for a few minutes before adding the other toppings. Worked like a charm. On top of that, there’s a little bit of shredded mozzarella, a hearty sprinkling of crumbled feta, some diced grape tomatoes, olive oil, and Herbes de Provence. That last one sounds pretty fancy, right? Yet it’s been languishing amongst the spices, largely unused. It sounded like the right blend of flavors for this pizza, though, and it turned out to be just that. You’ve found another purpose, my fragrant friend.
The rating: enthusiastic thumbs up from the grown folk, complete disregard by the young ‘uns. They wouldn’t even try it, but who cares? More for us!
