Favorite Pizza Toppings

Summer is a time to celebrate! We did so at the Village Gathering yesterday. Despite the rain, everyone enjoyed their time together sharing perma-culture skills at Twin Pond Retreat in Brookfield, Vermont (www.twinpondretreat.com). This seminal event kicks off the third annual Village Building Convergence in Central Vermont. For details visit www.vbc-vt.org

Saturday's workshops culminated in a feast featuring pizzas cooked on WoodBelly Pizza's mobile wood-fired oven. We made some amazing creations. Thanks for your team work.

Here are some pizza concoctions that everyone loved:
Black Locust Flowers (Robinia Pseudoacacia)
  • Buckwheat Rice Crust with Cheddar Cheese, Morel Mushrooms and Walnuts
  • Wheat Crust with Black Locust Flowers, Dandelion Greens, Spinach and Pesto
  • Corn Crust with Olives, Tomatoes, Zucchini and Sausage
It's true! You can eat Black Locust Flowers. They smell like jasmine, taste like vanilla, and they are blooming in gragrant glory right now. Enjoy!

Pizza Bianca (no tomatoes) with rucola (arugula)

I grew up swimming in the Adriatic Sea and buying Pizza Bianca with garlic, ricotta and arugula from beach vendors.

Use your imagination. What is your favorite pizza combination?
