I may have invented a new pizza classic last night.
I think we're all familiar with the classic "Canadian" pizza (pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms, mozza and sometimes sausage). Well, last night I invented the "Truly Canadian" pizza. It was topped with mozzarella AND white cheddar, pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms AND sliced garlic on a thick layer of tomato sauce and a fluffy crust. It was delicious, although quite filling.
It got me thinking though, about how much I'm looking forward to the fresh tasting pizzas of summer. I have to admit, I've been in a bit of a pizza slump the last few weeks. In the summers I like to pull some of my pizza ingredients directly from the garden (basil, rosemary, tomatoes, onion....) and I look for other ingredients to complement what I have (asparagus, peppers, bocconcini mozzarella, goat cheese, etc.). And sometimes we make it on the barbecue... Mmmm.
I can't wait for spring!
