If I see one more watermelon I think I might lose it.
I know I know, they really are delicious. But come on, this guy weighed in at 27 pounds:
I think I need an emergency trip to the chiropractor. Followed by a trip to the spa. Followed by an afternoon drinking champagne and eating cupcakes on a picnic blanket.
I guess I could settle for an evening drinking a beer and eating pizza. It really is the next best thing.
Taylor and I have been on a pesto kick recently since our basil at the farm has downy mildew and is on its way out. I have been insisting we eat basil at least once a day. It’s only a matter of time before it’s gone for good.
We enjoyed a heirloom tomato and pesto pizza for dinner last night. It only took one bite of this delicious pizza for me to totally forget about melons. All is well again.
For the pizza:
A variety of heirloom tomatoes sliced into thin rounds. We used Goldie, Aunt Ruby’s, and Brandywine.
about 1/3 cup of homemade pesto
1/4 cup of shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese.
Salt and pepper to taste.
1 ball of homemade or store bought pizza dough.
Preheat oven to 400.
Roll out dough. Spread pesto evenly. Top with sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle cheese, salt and pepper. Bake for 12-15 minutes or just until cheese is bubbling and dough is slightly browned. Enjoy!
