My recent adventures in pizza began last week, when I had a few people over for pizza before heading to the Beach House concert. Although I made many delicious pizzas, given that I was hosting people, I didn’t have time to take any pictures for the blog! Fortunately I had a bunch of dough leftover, and some free time, so I went about making some more delicious pizza for the blog.

This pizza has been on my mind for quite some time! After the popularity of my Beet, Arugula, and Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese, I thought that same idea would transfer quite well into pizza format! I was definitely right! Not only does this pizza look beautiful, the flavours were awesome.

Zucchinis…you either love or hate them…or rather, you love them but then hate them because you have so many at the end of the gardening season that you can’t possibly fathom eating another one of those massive green squashes.
Yeah that sounds about right.

The Breakfast Pizza – the end of a trilogy! This also marks the 4th day in a row that I have eaten pizza. I can’t complain though, pizza is a wonderfully balanced meal in my eyes (and stomach)!
I figured it was time to try making a breakfast pizza, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! Not only did it gift my nostrils with the pleasant aroma of my breakfast favourites, the flavour was wonderful! Combining breakfast classics onto thin, airy pizza crust, how could you go wrong? Well you can’t! Unless you burn it of course…

Continuing on with the pizza and pesto of the previous posts, here is a pizza stacked with some awesome flavours! Delicious fresh pesto, juicy mushrooms, savoury red onion, finished off with the smokey flavour of creamy smoked gouda! A pizza that not only looks great, but tastes awesome too!

For whatever reason, this week just felt like a pizza week, but truth-be-told, every week could be pizza week because that stuff is freakin’ amazing! Especially with this ridiculously easy pizza dough recipe. It literally takes about 5 minutes to make (maybe less).
For this pizza I decided to keep it simple and go with a classic margherita style pizza with tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, topped off with a sprinkle of salt! So simple, so good!

This is one of those “non-recipe” recipes, where I just toss a bunch of ingredients on something until i’m satisfied! Those are the best kind of recipes anyways, right?
Now you may have noticed this isn’t actually a pizza, more a faux-pizza, using delicious toppings you might find on a pizza but rather than pizza dough, I use a portobello mushroom! Low-carb and delicious, not that I particularly care about low-carb, but I DO care about delicious!

Tomorrow (or I guess today once this post is published), I will be making my way to New York for the first time, where I will most certainly be enjoying a slice of pizza or two! In the spirit of New York and pizza, I felt this recipe that has been hanging out in my blog archives for quite some time needed to be shared!
This awesome pizza uses Jim Lahey’s amazing “no-knead” pizza dough, making it ridiculously easy to make! You basically just put everything in a bowl the night before, and voila, the next day it has become an amazing pizza dough! Now that’s my kind of recipe! Of course, I had to add a little bit extra to it, because following a recipe to the tee is never as much fun!

I’ve been feeling guilty lately.
Guilty because it has been A LOOONG time since i’ve gone to the gym (which I used to do regularly), and guilty because my blogging output has been pitiful the last couple months.
With big intentions to go to the gym today, I got home from work to find this delicious looking focaccia bread on my counter. This is where my resolutions fail me.
Food blogger guilt takes over.

We were recently contacted by Cookin’ Greens to create a unique and tasty using some of their fresh frozen vegetable mixes. Bob & I decided that creating a veggie packed BBQ pizza would be the best option! Now here is something cool about Cookin’ Greens which I really appreciate: all their frozen veggies (chopped kale, chopped spinach, chopped rapini, Designer Mix and the Athlete’s Mix) are frozen within six hours after being freshly farm picked, then are double washed, double blanched, chopped and flash frozen to seal in the maximum amount of nutrition and flavour. Because of Cookin’ Greens intense process, you can find these frozen veggies in the organic isle. But I’m hungry, so let’s get to the recipe! Continue reading
