Take-out Tuesday, Crazy Spring Radish Pizza
I had some big fat rosy red radishes in an edible centerpiece
Radishes are one of my favorite things to paint and “play” with
And guess what?
They are crazy good on a pizza!
Cut them into slices
Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt
They really don’t need pepper because they are peppery on their own
Roast the slices at 400 for about 15 minutes
I used my favorite ready crust, Pillsbury thin crust dough in a can
Place crust on baking sheet, prick all over with a fork and bake at 400 for about 8 minutes until crust begins to brown
I first spread the baked crust with Stonewall Kitchen Roasted Garlic Bread Spread
It is available at many stores, Piggly Wiggly, Whole Foods, Fresh Market, Sur la Table, or
You can find a store here
This stuff is crazy good, but you can also use Alfredo sauce, pesto, olive oil or rub your crust with roasted garlic, anything that suits your fancy
I topped my pizza with crisp tender asparagus spears, blue cheese, parmesan cheese, Italian meats and the roasted radishes
Psst…look for this Castello Burger Blue in the deli cheese section of your grocery store. It is my new favorite, it’s cut into handy slices perfect for topping sandwiches, burgers, pizza…and it has a wonderful balanced flavor
Create your radish pizza any way you want, substitute ricotta or goat cheese, make it all veggie, just radish, or maybe add chicken or bacon
