Birthday beetza

Today just so happens to be my birthday. And the best birthday present came in two forms. First, there was apples! Lots of apples

And second, was Taylor insisting on cooking me anything I wanted. This in of itself is amazing! And guess what tastes extra delicious on your birthday….farm fresh beetza! (beet pizza). It never gets old!

This is the best present a girl could ask for.

Homemade or store bought pizza dough
4 large beets. Boiled
1 small bunch curly kale, torn into bite sized pieces
1/2 cup goat cheese, plus more for crumbling
1 tbs olive oil
1tsp salt
1/4 cup Parmesan
1/4 cup crushed walnuts

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Purée your beets, goat cheese, salt and oil.
Spread beet mixture over pizza dough.

Layer goat cheese crumbles

Layer kale

Shred parmesan on top of pizza

Drizzle with more olive oil and bake for ten minutes

Remove from oven, add walnuts, bake for 2 more
Minutes. Enjoy!

    Happy, happy birthday! Hope you enjoyed your birthday pizza. 🙂

  9. I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed you being away! So happy to have you back and it’s nice to have you and Taylor settled into the farm – and Henry! I’m happy to hear there was not extensive damage to the farm – it certainly took it’s toll on New England farms:(

    Happy Birthday!!! What a great way to celebrate – the pizza is so colorful!

    Hope your birthday was a fabulous day that will continue the rest of the year. Are those the honey crisps (I hope!)?
