Sun-Dried-Tomato, Corn Spinach Brie Pizza
Here’s a pizza that I made this summer and even wrote about, but forgot to post!
Sometimes I go a little overboard with fresh ingredients. This pizza was one of those times. Here are the ingredients and the reasons I chose to use them on this pizza.
First, Andrew asked to have brie as the cheese on a pizza. It was so delicious last time I used it so I was excited to use it again. Second, my mom gave me a stash of sun-dried tomatoes that she made from her garden and I thought they would go nicely with the brie. Third, our neighbors shared some fresh rosemary from their herb garden. Fourth, we had fresh corn on the cob from our CSA and having never used corn as a pizza ingredient I decided to throw that on. And finally, to give the pizza color, I added some fresh baby spinach.
I had a fun time assembling this pizza. First, I spread homemade pizza sauce on my pre-baked dough. Next, I diced the brie as small as I could in hopes that when it melted that it would cover the pizza well. Then I sprinkled it on the sauce and some shredded fresh baby spinach. I rehydrated the dried tomatoes in warm water, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper, finely chopped rosemary, and tossed them on the pizza. Lastly, I cut the corn off the cob and sprinkled that on as well. I baked the pizza in the oven for about 10 minutes.
This pizza had the most fresh ingredients I have ever used on a pizza and it was bursting with fresh flavor! If you make this one for yourself I think you will agree that it tastes like you are taking a bite out of a garden. This was a delicious summer pizza recipe.

Fulmer Pie Pizza
I come from a long line of farmers and do-it-yourselfers, but somehow I have struggled with both skills. I am just learning how to garden and I have been known to purchase a lot of ingredients that my Uncle Al would just as soon make himself. Homemade pizza sauce is an ingredient that I have not yet attempted. While visiting my Uncle Al, he hand had some homemade sauce in the fridge ready to use for one our of three pizza creations.
To go along with the homemade sauce we pan cooked Italian sausage. We also included kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes, sliced jalapenos and yellow peppers. After pre-baking the dough we slathered on the homemade sauce, laid on sharp provolone cheese, added all the veggies and sausage, then sprinkled on grated parmesan cheese. We let the pizza bake and then dug in.
So many flavors jumped off this pizza. I honed in on the homemade pizza sauce. Uncle Al’s sauce recipe is so good that I could eat it like soup! The rest of the pizza was amazing as well, from the sausage to the veggies and the cheeses. It only took one bite to for me to change my ways and commit to making pizza sauce for all my pizzas.

Pesto Prosciutto Pizza
Andrew and I had his parents over for dinner today. I planned on making pizza and I asked for their pizza preferences. Ron told me they like healthy ingredients; he remembered mushrooms were out of the question because Andrew doesn’t like them, and he requested no octopus or bananas. This was disappointing because I was planning on testing out my new banana, octopus concoction that I had just perfected! I was however, excited to try a variation of a healthy pizza recipe from the book my friend, Nicole, got me for Christmas. My pizza included sun-dried tomato pesto, spinach, mozzarella cheese and prosciutto to top it off. The sun-dried tomato pesto was a nice change from my normal marinara, but no worries Prego, I am not abandoning my favorite sauce. This pizza was excellent and was super healthy!
