I’m warning you now – it’ impossible to eat just one slice. this pizza was so good. I got the recipe + all of the ingredients delivered to me from a service that I am newly obsessed with called plated. all I have to do is choose the meals I’d like off the weekly menu – they pack up everything I need (with some exceptions like salt + pepper) and on the day I choose delicious ingredients + recipes show up on my door step! I joined up with plated to help get re-motivated and inspired in the kitchen and so far it has exceeded my expectations.
this pizza looked so delish that I immediately got to work making it for the lunch as I was unpacking the box. the kids weren’t too excited about it - just too many veggies for them - which is fine because that just means more for me. now I’ve got today's lunch, tonight’s dinner + tomorrow’s lunch ready to go. it does take a bit of effort to make this pizza but I’m telling you it’s totally worth it. not only could it be lunch or dinner – since it’s delicious and gorgeous you could absolutely serve this while entertaining guests!
