Roasted Tomato, Kale, and Feta Pizza


This year we joined a CSA, and I'm very much looking forward to having fresh veggies all summer long - veggies that are grown less than 3 miles from my house, no less!  Being that our spring and summer got a late start here in Atlanta, right now we're getting a lot of greens, root vegetables, and lettuce.  And while I love all of those things, they aren't Joey's favorites, so I have to get creative when it comes to dinner.

This pizza is a really great use of kale.  I actually ate it for the first time last year when I attended a food photography workshop in Charleston.  I really loved it, and therefore was super excited when Annie recreated it last year.  Roasted tomatoes are one of my favorite things ever, and combined with salty, briny feta and the kale, this pizza is near the top of my 'favorites' list.

With summer tomatoes jusssst barely beginning to come into season, this is a great way to get your fix - if you've been jonesing for them, that is.  They are slow-roasted in the oven, so even less than stellar tomatoes come out tasting pretty fantastic.  Joey and Caroline both loved this pizza as well, and I know that it will be making a repeat appearance soon, what with all the kale we have showing up.

And finally, as an aside, is there any interest in a CSA series?  Maybe a chronicle of what we receive in ours and recipe ideas, suggestions, or links?

First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a
quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself
and clear your head before writing. I have had trouble
clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
recommendations or hints? Thank you!

I'd love to hear what you think of your CSA. We did one for 3 seasons a few years ago and ultimately stopped once we planted our own garden. I did find that I wasn't able to use everything so some weeks it wasn't worth it. Trying to find new ways to use up okra every week for two months was difficult.
