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

 

Radishes and Roses

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

    Jenna, You’re as fearless in the kitchen when it comes to combining flavors as you are with your paintbrush! I’ll have to look for Castello Burger Blue cheese for my next blue cheese purchase 🙂

    Hi Jenna,
    There are so many things on this post that I just love! Starting with the pig plate, that is the cutest little pig ever! What a great idea to pair the roses with the radishes made a lovely centerpiece. I would just love a slice of the pizza and just sit and enjoy the beauty that you create! Hope you have a fantastic weekend and thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
