Fall is coming– we can all feel it in the occasional slight crispness in the air and the turning of colors on the edges of the leaves. It is, by far, my favorite season. I love pulling out my worn jeans and comfy sweaters and snuggling in with a good book and a mug of hot tea. My family and friends have always chuckled at my bizarre palate of favorite foods. As I think about my favorite fall foods, bitter greens are at the tippy top. (I always say that my two favorites are chocolate and kale!) For many people, these health super boosters are often hard to tolerate. But with the right combinations, the bitterness can definitely be tempered.
Check out this delicious Broccoli Rabe Pesto Pizza. The crust is the perfect blend of crispy edge and soft middle. The broccoli rabe is vibrantly green and when mixed with the basil and a bit of honey, not outrageously bitter!
As often as I create my own recipes, when I find a good one outside of my own kitchen that can’t be improved upon, I feel lucky! The broccoli rabe pesto recipe is my own, but the pizza crust recipe listed below I found in the Paleo Magazine in the August/September 2018 issue. If you haven’t read this magazine yet, I highly recommend it– it’s fantastic!
