Straight From the Garden

Thanks to an overabundance of herbs in the garden (hopefully the green-thumb gods won't take that as a sign of over-confidence, I've just gotten lucky so far this year!), my brother's ingenuity (at the beach, I watched and learned as he put together his infamous pizzas for dinner one night) teaching me to pre-heat my pizza stone, and a great deal on shredded cheese at Safeway, dinner last night... was served.

Fresh oregano on my version of a traditional Italian pizza... whole wheat crust covered with tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella, and pepperoni... all sprinkled with Parmesan.

And, fresh cilantro on yummy BBQ chicken pizza, which no surprise turned out to be our favorite. Honey barbeque sauce layered on whole wheat crust followed by shredded braised chicken, mozarella cheese, and topped with rough-chopped cilantro.

*Next time for the BBQ chicken pizza, I've vowed to try the real CPK recipe which includes smoked Gouda!


  1. I LOVE bbq chix pizza. I've never, however, made pizza from scratch at home. I might have to soon, however!

  2. Your pizzas look awesome! I have one heck of a time getting the pizza on the stone before the dough is cooked without ending up with a completely mangled mess. You've inspired me to try again!

  3. Hi Kara, this pizza looks awesome...nice thin crust and the toppings are right up my alley.


Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you!

I do my best to post responses back on your own blog but if your question is applicable to everyone, I'll leave you a response here.
