RePa* Recipe-Pizza(ish)


Late spring brings spring cleaning. My spring cleaning includes cleaning out the pantry and refrigerator. A full day of yard work led to putting together a meal from the latter two areas.

The pantry held a package of two whole grain pizza crusts from Whole Foods. I brushed one crust with olive oil. There was just enough hummus in the refrigerator to spread over the crust before topping with a sprinkling of marinated artichoke hearts, sliced cherry tomatoes and chopped fresh basil from the garden. I found a small piece of piave cheese to shave over the top. Piave is similar to a young parmigiano reggiano. I dusted freshly grated parmesan over all and baked in a 400 degree over until the cheeses had melted, about ten minutes.

The crisper yielded a small amount of frisee and one nice Belgian endive. I dressed the salad with a little olive oil and fresh lemon juice and added grated parmesan.

It was actually quite tasty.

Enjoy! Have a good weekend.
