Pizza with zucchini, feta, corn, and cilantro – 5 June 2013

Tonight’s pizza is from The Cheese Board’s wonderful cookbook, though I have altered it a bit. I had cilantro left over, and when running down a list of possible pizzas, this one stood out for that reason. Also b/c we’ve liked it in the past.

Roll the lime on a counter first to increase juiceability.

I failed to draft this on the 5th, and so am recovering it from photos on 1 July (!). Oops.

130605-lunchprep2OK, I really documented this with photos 🙂 I remember it had a “red chili jam” or jelly,

130605-lunchprepI served it when R was over for lunch, so had two “audience” members. They both thought it was good,  but the turkey was too mild (use more?) and ham might be more to the point. The brie was Fromager d’Affinois, a delicious cheese but perhaps not opinionated enough for this sandwich. Basically, good lunch, worth tweaking.lunchmain130605
