After a day of concentrated making, throwing, building and glazing pots, I need something easy for dinner – A quick and easy Pizza! A quick and easy, tasty, cheesey Pizza!!
Quick and easy because I usually have all the ingredients on hand – Including a ready-made crust; including a batch of fresh Basil Pesto from my local CoOp.
The Food – Pesto Pizza
For my Pesto Pizza, I use a prepared crust (I use Boboli brand) and prepared Pesto. For toppings, I sauté small bits of a wonderful smokey bacon (I use Neuske brand), then sliced Mushrooms. I scatter on the Pesto-covered crust – Then top all with a few crumbles of Goat Cheese and, of course, a good, melty Mozzarella Cheese. When it comes out of the oven, my husband slices into wedges (that’s his job) — We dine!
The Pottery — Maasha Platter and Plate
Maasha-Platter; Maasha Pizza Plate — Stoneware, hand built, reduction fired with stoney slips and ash glazes.
The entire Pizza fits beautifully on one of my wavy, hand-built Platters. It doesn’t stay there long — Because we quickly grab our slices, place them on one of my perfectly sized Pizza Plates, and make short work of dinner. We totally devour the entire Pizza (with a bite of Salad).
Note: Actually, these are my stoney Sandwich/Salad plates that go with my stoney Soup Bowls. Together, they make a great ‘set’ — And the plates are perfect for Lunch, Breakfast, or PIZZA anytime!
