…another yummy topic this week – pizza is one of my favorite foods. mostly because of the toppings. I took a look through my flickr feed (chock full of pizza as you’d probably imagine) and started making a list of my favorites. sounds harder than it really was. most of my favorites are topped with a combination of these ten ingredients. mix and match. one or two or five or seven. it’s all good.
2. fresh greens (spinach, arugula, radicchio all work well)
3. fresh mozzarella
4. goat cheese
5. blue cheese (I love melted blue cheese!)
6. mushrooms (lately I’ve sauteed them first. less water = crisper crust = better pizza)
7. fresh basil
9. melted onions (even better if you add a fennel bulb, thinly sliced)
no, I didn’t include prosciutto or fontina (both of which feature prominently in my favorite bistro vg pizza); I’m cutting back on pork and I’m pretty sure the spinach and melted onions would be delicious with any (or all) of the other three cheeses I’ve listed.
can’t wait to see what everyone else shared – wonder if I’ll find a new top-10?!
