Holy jumpin jones … do I have a pizza recipe that’s about to blow your mind!!
But first, a little story …
A couple of weeks ago Food Bloggers of Canada advertised for their members an opportunity to participate in The Little Potato Company event – each lucky blogger would recipe a couple bags of spuds – make something jazzy – blog about it – and we’ll all live happily ever after.
So I entered. I did so without even thinking much about it … seriously, this little blog wasn’t going to get the chance – there are so many stinking out of this world bloggers that are members of Food Bloggers of Canada , why would I get the chance of spud serendipity?
Fast forward 2 weeks … and this shows up!! 2 Bags of Something Blue Potatoes & 2 Bags of Fingerlings
Of course, the first thing I do is call my mom. And this is how the conversation went ;
“Ma, you need to come to my hose to eat potatoes … I just scored 4 wicked cool bags”
“ yes mother, for free …please come over”
“Dear child, no one in their right mind gets as excited as you do over potatoes … but I’ll be over as soon as possible”
I wish I made that up. I WAS PUMPED!! The Little Potato company chose me … and I hope I did them proud with my
Honey Drizzled Turkey, Cranberry, Sweet Chili Walnut Blue potato pizza with crispy sage.
While I was compensated with these potatoes, all opinions are my very own … and now, the good – bad – and beautiful about these little taters.
– They are little, cute and perfect for roasting alongside your holiday meal
– LOVE the packaging and how compact they fit in my tiny refrigerator
– LOVE the burst of blue
– LOVE the thin skin
– LOVE that this is a Canadian company
– I wish the purple run throughout the potatoes ( this may be me, just being picky)
The Beautiful :
And now, let’s talk pizza.
Seriously when it comes to pizza – quality matters to me, especially when I’m making it at home. I want fresh – I want exotic – I was sweet- spicy – tangy – rich – a crunchy crust, and chewy dough… and I want it to all work together … read : Pizza Snob. And this one … BLEW MY MIND. It’s not too spicy, but there’s a kick and the honey … oooohhh the honey … and the sage … and the walnuts.
