This is what we like to do with stuff that’s growing in the garden: put it on top of pizza. Every Friday night we make pizza; this is my night off from cooking, so to speak. If my husband and son are motivated, they make dough on Thursday night. If not, I buy a couple of packages of whole wheat pizza dough at Trader Joe’s. I just love a pizza loaded with veggies. Last Friday I picked four big artichokes and boiled them up. I sliced the hearts for the best pizza topping ever. I also threw on some kale, because kale is awesome on pizza. Toss it with a little olive oil first, so it doesn’t get too charred. Then consume pizza with an enormous glass of red wine, because it’s the right thing to do. I highly recommend Cocobon if you are looking for a good, cheap wine that tastes much more expensive than it is.
