Recipe of the Week – Pizza with Beet Greens & Basil

Today was maintenance day in my vegetable garden, and as I was thinning out the beets, I was thinking of all of the different ways that beet greens can be used.  Their delicious flavour is a perfect way to switch up any other green – they are so versatile!  I picked some fresh basil, and thought these two combined would be the perfect topping for pizza.  I can’t wait to make this again in a few weeks once more of my garden produce is ready.  I love to make garden pizzas in the summer – so much variety with toppings!  For now, hope you enjoy this recipe!

Ingredients

Pita bread (or you could use any pizza crust base)
Pizza sauce
Mozzarella cheese
Your favourite pizza toppings – I used sliced zucchini and tomato
One small handful of beet greens
One small bunch of fresh basil

Directions

Preheat your oven on broil.  Prepare the pizza.  I like to use pita bread as it is a thin crust and doesn’t take long to cook!  Spread your pizza sauce over the pita bread and top with your favourite toppings.  Finish off with the mozzarella cheese.  Put the pizza on a baking sheet and into the oven for 3-4 minutes – watching that it doesn’t burn.  You’ll know it’s done when the cheese is melted and slightly browned.  Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the beet greens and basil.  Enjoy!
