A Veggie Pizza for Every Season

Lauren Jones, Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet | 02/22/2013 | Food and Drink

There’s nothing quite like a perfectly cooked, thin crust pizza topped with fresh, seasonal produce. It makes for a simple, light and unquestionably delicious combination. We’ve put together some of our favorite recipes so you have a pizza for every season.

Winter: Purple Cauliflower Pizza

Cooking is as much about visual appeal as it is about taste. Grillmaster Russ created this pizza which is a delight for the eyes and the taste buds, with its bright, contrasting colors and fire roasted flavors. Purple cauliflower, Brussels sprouts leaves and sweet peppers are cooked over an open flame until they are caramelized to perfection.

Spring: Shaved Asparagus Pizza

This pizza from Smitten Kitchen is fresh and light, but still manages to taste comforting and indulgent. The combination of crunchy shaved asparagus, freshly chopped scallions, sharp, nutty parmesan and creamy mozzarella is heavenly. Throw some good quality olive oil and freshly ground pepper into the mix you’ve got yourself an amazing spring pizza.

Summer: Fig and Brie Cheese Pizza

Gooey, melted brie with freshly picked figs – need we say more? This pizza from whiteonricecouple.com is simple and delicious. The sugar in the figs caramelizes when roasted, pairing perfectly with the rich cheese and crispy, handmade pizza crust.

Fall: Roasted Butternut Squash and Hazelnut Pizza

This pizza is one of our tastiest creations. The crispy, fire cooked crust provides an unbeatable base for the earthy, fall ingredients. The sauce is made from a mixture of creamy ricotta cheese, fresh rosemary, olive oil and lemon zest. The pizza is then topped with red onion and butternut squash that has been caramelized with balsamic vinegar. Roasted hazelnuts are sprinkled over the top to finish.
