Take-out Tuesday, Crazy Spring Radish Pizza

This pizza is a wonderful way to celebrate Spring

with the unexpected and delicious topping of radishes

Paired with asparagus,

and combined with a few tasty Italian meats and cheeses,

you will have a winner

of a Spring time appetizer, brunch, lunch or dinner!

Remove the stems, wash and 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

Place the slices on a parchment lined pan

and roast 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

This spread is available at many stores,

Piggly Wiggly, Whole Foods, Fresh Market, Sur la Table,


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 {optional}, parmesan cheese, Italian meats

and the roasted radishes

You can assemble this pizza early in the day

and refrigerate it for baking later

It only takes 12-14 minutes in the oven for a delicious flavor filled pizza!

Create your radish pizza any way you want,

substitute ricotta or goat cheese,

make it all veggie, just radish,

or opt for chicken or bacon instead of the Italian meats

    I’m adding radishes to my shopping list now! I’ve never roasted radishes before so I can’t wait to try this on my next pizza. Looks delicious and the vegetables are perfect for spring……..

  7. You had me at pizza! This looks so yummy and your painting is beautiful! This would be so cute to have as a dish or even an appetizer for Easter! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    You know the question “which came first the chicken or the egg?” I have to ask “which was created first–the painting or the recipe?” Also, another question came to my inquisitive, but non-artist, mind: is it acceptable to call a watercolor a painting?

    • That’s a really good question, I don’t know which came first but either way asparagus and radishes are a wonderful combo for spring! Yes, watercolors are definitely paintings!

  9. Sounds good and it’s pretty! I still haven’t tried warm radishes, all ways cold, but never cooked-gotta get on that:@)

  10. Velva says:

    Fantastic pizza! I don’t think a lot of people realize how roasted radishes mellow in flavor. It’s a beautiful addition to a Spring pizza.

  11. I’m not sure how I would like radishes on pizza but it does look pretty and it is healthy with the radishes and asparagus.

  12. I would never think of radishes on pizza but I love them and it might be a fun thing to try. Do love the asparagus! Gotta try roasting!

  13. A lovely snack that is so healthy. I am not a huge fan of radishes, however I think being roasted would entice the flavors. P.S. I did receive your pretty birthday card Jenna. Thanks so much.

  14. Jill Kuhn says:

    hi Jenna, I have never thought about roasting radishes! What does it do to their flavor? Your pizza looks yummy as always! ❤️

  15. lulu says:

    No question the hubby would like this as he is crazy for radishes.
