Two True Spring Pizzas

This got a bit experimental, which is how I like my pizza.  Although to be honest, with the internet these days nothing is really that experimental.  I shared the recipe for Shaved Asparagus Pizza with Rhubarb Vinegar and Rhubarb Cranberry Goat Cheese Pizza at Foodlink, which is a non-profit organization working to promote local food.  Here are some extra pictures:

And finally, my assistant, hard at work grating cheese (and yes, that’s pepperoni on the cutting board for the “kid” pizza, what can I say, kids just love their pepperoni, but at least it’s from a local company):

  1. Just wanted you to know that you inspired me to go to the Dunwoody Green Market yesterday. Honestly I only purchased a peach pastry, some cookies for Salus, and a few bags of organic , vegan energy bites. But I did marvel at the produce and meat. Maybe next time I will branch out into oils and vinegars or yogurt?

  2. Thanks for the blog share. And love the idea of rhubarb on a pizza! So glad I could provide inspiration. I made a warm spring salad the other day with a bit of chopped rhubarb (no honey). The salad was great, except for the rhubarb. Way too tart–definitely needs that honey glaze!

    • Hey, good to know! I’d love it if rhubarb could be used “as is” but it seems that a light sweetness is necessary. Still, I’m happy to be finding more uses of it besides just cobblers, crumbles, and jams!

      • Same here. I think you’ll need to experiment a lot. When I was originally searching for non dessert rhubarb recipes there was very little, but I know it can be done and well!
