 Choose your favorite seasonable vegetables (photo courtesy The Homegrown Collective).
A meal kit from Good Eggs inspired this tip:
If you make a veggie pizza, make a matching salad.
The veggies on the pizza get softened in the oven. The veggies that comprise the salad are raw, tossed in a vinaigrette* that complements the cheesiness of the pizza.
When a vinaigrette isn’t enough:
Marinate the vegetables (e.g., mushrooms) for a longer time.
For an onion pizza, marinate the salad onions and include other vegetables: cucumbers and bell pepper, for example.
PICK YOUR VEGGIES
Pick your favorite pizza vegetables that also work in a salad:
Eggplant (for salad, try this Greek melitzanosalata recipe, accompanied by olives and romaine)
Sweet onions/red onions/caramelized onions
Of course, you can have just one topping on the pizza, and still have multiple ingredients in the salad.
You’re the chef!
