I’m not sure where I got the idea, but I did, and had to try it. I know it came from my own brain, but not sure what inspired it…I think it was the radishes. Did you know that if you cook radishes they loose their bite and sweeten?
First I made some sourdough pizza crust. Then I sliced carrots, radishes, and leeks thinly. I diced some rabbit tenderloin that I saved out from our Rabbit feast of the other night. A bit of butter, in the pan, add the rabbit. Once it was browned on the outside, I tossed in the carrots and radishes, followed shortly later by the leeks. Once the rabbit was about done, and the veggies tender, I threw in a full head of garlic, minced. I thought that might be overkill, but I was so wrong. It was perfect. After the garlic was soft, everything in the pan was placed on the precooked pizza dough. I topped it all with shredded Monteray Jack cheese, and then sprinkled with dried thyme.
The pizza was place into the 450 degree oven, for about 15 minutes. The crust and cheese were nicely browned. Once removed I topped with micro greens, and served with a generous garnish of more micro greens. We can’t get enough of the greens around here this year.
This pizza was amazing. I’m not just tooting my own horn. I was in awe of how good this was. The carrots and radishes were so sweet, the garlic has just enough zing left in it, the rabbit was perfectly cooked and tender, the garlic, butter and leeks combined to add just enough moisture to not need a “sauce”.
I am not sure whether to call this Peter Rabbit Pizza or Farmer McGregor Pizza…but the idea of the rabbits paired with carrots, radishes and leeks appeals to my sense of irony.
Average Large Chicken Egg on Right, Average Duck Egg, and the monster duck egg… I can’t imagine what she thought when she laid that. My husband said it made him wonder for a moment if a much larger bird just stopped by for a visit, and he was a little disappointed not to have seen the ostrich on it’s way through.
