About this BlogI love to make pizza. The Wife and I joined a CSA for the first time this year and began to wonder what we would do with all of the vegetables that we get each week. I mean, what do you do with 12 different kinds of lettuce??? I began to think, why not try to find a way to use some of the vegetables on a different pizza each week. So began the idea for this blog. Each week I'll try to use some of the CSA vegetables that we get as pizza toppings and post the results. I'm sure I'll get some topping combos that are keepers and others that are questionable at best. Either way, it should be a good time.

Most people don’t have a wood-burning pizza oven in their backyard. Unfortunately, I’m no different from most people here. The best that I can do in my 12 foot wide Baltimore row house is a standard gas-fired GE oven. One … Continue reading
My basic red sauce is a sauce of crushed up San Marzano* variety tomatoes with just a little bit of kosher salt mixed in. (NOTE – you don’t need San Marzano variety tomatoes to make a great sauce, but I … Continue reading
When, in the description of this blog, I joked about having to figure out how to use 12 lettuces in one week I thought, at most, we’d get two, maybe three lettuces or greens in one week. The first week … Continue reading
The first week of our CSA included garlic scapes (along with the multitude of greens and lettuces). I’d heard of this vegetable but had never actually seen it or tasted it. They look like some kind of odd twisty green … Continue reading
