Personal four-cheese pizza; kale from the garden – 5 August 2017

Ungreat personal asparagus pizza – 19 May 2017

Darn. I was really looking forward to this pizza, but it wasn’t really much good. Not sure why. Too much asparagus and/or cheese shrouding the scallion taste, perhaps? Asparagus not tasty enough? Really don’t know, since my previous renditions of … Continue reading

Personal Four Cheese pizza; kale – 1 March (ack!) 2017

Broccoli calzoni – 2 February 2017

Pizza with eggplant, red pepper, and feta – 9 December 2016
