Simple Food: Arugula Pear Pizza





Fall means change. And fall also means colder temperatures and shorter days. And with anything in dwindling supply, the number of hours we spent outdoors have gone down, in equal relation to the number of hours that nighttime falls upon us earlier.

Similarly, fall also means stuffy noses, chunky sweaters, and boots running through a sea of brown dried leaves in the backyard. The harsh crunching as they break under even the lightest Toddler weight. But my favorite part of fall so far has been the pumpkin, and butternut squash, and sweet potatoes. Here lately my farmer's market visits have me almost always leave with either one of them and I come home baking rich fall dishes.

As a sweeter side of fall is approaching - and we all know it will, as Thanksgiving came and went already - we can embrace the Holidays with its delicious roasted turkey, pumpkin pies, and hot chocolate and save this recipe for a lighter pick-me-up meal in between all the festivities.

Arugula Pear Pizza

Ingredients:

1 recipe pizza crust {or store bought if you prefer}
half of a 3 lb pie pumpkin seeded, peeled, and cut into desired pieces 
1 pear, peeled and cut into slices
Salt and Pepper to taste
Olive Oil

2 c Arugula leaves, loosely packed
1/2 c of crumbled bleu cheese
seeds of half of a fresh pomegranate
1 tsp red wine vinegar


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit
 Roll out the pizza dough on a baking sheet {or Pizza Stone}



2. In a large bowl, toss together the pumpkin pieces, pear pieces, Salt and Pepper with 1 Tbsp olive oil
3. Arrange the mixture on the prepared pizza dough and bake 20 minutes
4. Meanwhile, combine Arugula, bleu cheese and pomegranate seeds with 1 TBSP olive oil and spread over the pizza once it comes out the oven.

Enjoy

Grateful



Giving you a virtual pot of beautiful fall mums today. 

But what is more important than the symbolic bringing of a bouquet of flowers, I want to give a note of thanks. This year, proven to be simultaneously long and short, has helped me grow in ways I couldn't have imagined. Between the mountains and valleys of happiness and sadness that had me tumble off the side of a cliff at times, I am forever grateful for everything I have learned and the people at my side.  

I'm also incredibly thankful to all of you returning week after week to my humble space, reading my posts along with me. Your continued support is extremely uplifting, even in my troublesome moments.

And through it all, to God be the Glory. Always.
