What, a #SundaySupper theme centered around fresh foods from the Farmers Market, local sources and/or your garden?! Um, Yay! Could there be a better theme to showcase all the great foods in season around the world? Our friend T.R. from No One Likes Crumbley Cookies is hosting this event. The line up of foods is amazing! I truly can not wait to try all these recipes.
I thought long and hard about what I was going to make. My garden is just now starting to bear fruit, but nothing is ripe or ready for cooking. So, without further adieu, off to the Farmers Market I went. The market that I like to frequent is the Flint Farmers Market. This open air market has been in operation for pretty much a 100 years. I believe during World War I there was a season that was missed. Farmers from all over mid-Michigan come to this market to sell their goods. You can procure such a wide range of goods from meats and cheeses to honey and jams. All of it is good, local foods. My favorite though, are the fruits and veggies. What I can’t grow, they can. I love to spend my morning going up and down aisles, from vendor to vendor.
Loaded up with fresh radishes, zucchini, yellow crooked neck squash, sweet Amish onions, scallions, red bell peppers and a pint of blackberries that I just could not resist. The options of what to make were endless. Well, except my sons and I ate all the blackberries in the car on the way home so that left those out of the equation. Could you blame us?
Pizza is what came to mind. A simple crust made with a bit of local honey, to hold all these veggies. Plus, who doesn’t like pizza? No tomatoes for the sauce, so I went with just extra virgin olive oil and dried oregano.
Garden Fresh Pizza
- 2 & 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
- A pinch Salt
- 1 cup Water (You may need to add more depending on dough texture)
- 1 heaped tablespoon Honey
- 1 packet Dry Active Yeast
- 2 heaped tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (To saute y our veggies in. This also acts as the sauce on your pizza)
- Veggies (to saute for pizza)
- 1 Ball of Mozzarella Cheese
- Dried Oregano (to sprinkle liberally over pizza before baking)
In this Garden Fresh Pizza, I used 2 radishes sliced thin, 1 zucchini, 1 yellow crooked neck squash, 1 red bell pepper, a sweet onion and for the topping green scallions.
This pizza was awesome! This is not a thin crust pizza. The dough raises in the oven and holds up well to the weight of the veggies and cheese. I swear, the veggies were the star of the pizza. The Amish sweet onions were so flavorful! I did not buy enough of them for all the great things I want to add them into. I have to go back for more. Seriously.
From desserts and appetizers to soups, salads and entrees, this #SundaySupper has your covered. I can not deiced what I want to try next. Gazpacho? Maybe a cobbler. Hmmmmm
