Lemony Ricotta & Ramp Pizza

IMG_7264When I heard ramps were available at the farmer’s market, I made plans to rush over there, baby and all, and buy some right away! But then I realized that I was going away for Pesach and not cooking for more than a week, so that wouldn’t have been a good idea. Then, I found out Fresh Direct has ramps! So I made sure to place an order to be delivered the second I got home from Florida. I would need to restock my kitchen, anyway, but I did it mostly for the ramps. Continue reading

I knew had to make this amazing and cheeseless lamb pizza the first time I saw this recipe in Food & Wine; the following day I took pizza dough and ground lamb out of the oven and made it for dinner.

A fellow Kosher Connection blogger wrote about potatoes as an “if you could only eat one food…” If I had to choose only one food to eat, three meals a day, for the rest of my life, it would be pizza. There’s nothing like a classic pie with tomatoes, mozzarella and a sprinkling of fresh basil. Continue reading

Pizza with Baby Artichokes and Lemon Ricotta

Springtime means artichokes, a vegetable I’ve gotten familiar with these past few years, but this spring marks the first time I’ve ever made baby artichokes.

Baby artichokes are a smaller, fully mature variety of the globe artichoke. The fun part about them is that there’s no choke to be found in these little guys, so with a little bit of trimming, the whole thing is edible. I guess they should really be called artis?

I love pizza. I love making it at home, I love little mini ones, and I love pizza store pizza. Sometimes, homemade pizza needs a little twist. Tomato sauce and muenster cheese can get boring. When I saw Aida Mollenkamp make pizza with roasted mushrooms and an EGG on top, I knew I had to try it.

I made it once before, on one pizza dough, and with only one egg. That was definitely not enough – of course if two people are eating the pie they’ll fight over that lone egg.

Well, aside from absolute deliciousness, it was a perfect meal for a busy/lazy day. I didn’t even to make a side dish that night. If you’re not lazy like I am, a nice big salad would be delicious with this. Continue reading
