Perfect Pizza

The Chef: Colleen

The Menu: A perfect summer pizza with big chunks of diced tomato, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, and caramelized onions. With a handy, ready-made whole-wheat crust, Colleen was able to bust this pizza out in no time flat. For accompaniment, she made a vibrant salad of baby greens, kale, bell pepper, avocado, and homemade croutons.

The Goods: This is the perfect Friday meal: relaxed, delicious, and served in the bright sunshine. Tomorrow some of us are headed to Los Angeles for more vitamin D, and to attend the very glam Animal Acres Gala. It's hard to say which element of the trip excites us most, considering we are getting to hang out with fancy celeb types, we'll be eating a dinner catered by Madeleine Bistro, we get to hobnob with rescued animals, and there just might be a trip to Veggie Grill squeezed in to the weekend too. Be sure to get the full report on Press Pass!

Beware. It's deathly hot here in Southern CA.

Mmm pizza, although I'd love a meal from Madeleine Bistro anytime!
