I have always loved ham and pineapple pizza: sweet salty tropical perfection. I can’t believe it, but this may be the first ham and pineapple whole wheat english muffin pizza that I’ve made for the kids’ lunches. I had no shredded mozzarella, so instead I used sliced provolone, which melts beautifully. I threw in some sliced carrots, roasted pumpkin seeds, sliced persimmons and grapes. The persimmons are from a neighbor’s tree. Our neighborhood is truly rich in fruit trees: orange, lemon, satsuma, plum, fig, persimmon, etc. As a non-native Californian, I never take fruit trees or strawberries in winter for granted. The treat today is a lovely little pile of chocolate rocks.
