This recipe is my personal triumph from the past two weeks. Not only was it super delicious and an easy way to make both my brother and my husband happy, but I managed to use not one, not two, but three separate CSA vegetables on one pizza!
Make this pizza for a tasty game night snack (we played Monopoly!), and as a fabulous use of extra CSA veggie leftovers to prep for your next share pick-up!
Spinach, Feta & Caramelized Onion Pizza with Arugula Pesto
2 large handfuls baby spinach or regular spinach with stems removed and ripped into smaller pieces
1/4 diced green onions
Roll out the Pizza dough to the size and thickness of your preference. Spread arugula pesto in a thick coat. Layer spinach, caramelized onions, green onions, and cheese. Bake on a pizza stone or cookie sheet covered in tin foil at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes, or until your crust is golden brown.
What’s your favorite way to combine multiple CSA vegetables into one recipe?
The fancy recipes I’ve been sharing on this blog are great, but sometimes all you have the time or energy for is throwing something quick together. One of my favorite (and unexpected!) benefits of being in the PLG CSA is that I have so many greens to get through every week that it’s forcing me to incorporate more produce into just about every meal. So good for me!
So here’s a round-up of what I’ve been doing with my CSA vegetables when I only have the inclination to throw something quick together, but still want to eat some delicious veggies.
Our first week’s CSA basket featured a beautiful Mesclun mix and delicate Arugula that was deserving of more than some bottled grocery store dressing. This week’s basket, which I just picked up (!!), features some tasty-looking head lettuce, as well. So it was time to start testing out some homemade dressings!
First up is a delicious Peanut-Lime Dressing, with all of my favorite Asian flavors. I added an extra tablespoon of water to the recipe because I liked that consistency better, plus I threw in some salt because I like my food with a hefty salt quotient. Feel free to leave it out in yours 😉
