This punchy, crowd-pleasing pizza is a great choice for spring and summer.
Big thanks to B&W Growers for sponsoring this post.
It’s no secret that we Copes love pizza. And leafy greens. And pizzas topped with leafy greens. So when the lovely folks who grow watercress were looking for interesting spring recipes, a really flavorful, well-rounded pizza came to mind immediately. Shocker.
This pizza is full of bold flavors — peppery watercress, sweet concentrated balsamic, earthy walnuts, pungent blue cheese. It sports watercress in two tangentially related forms, which is a very good thing, I promise. (Psst…it’s watercress pesto underneath and wispy fresh watercress leaves on top. I didn’t mean to bury the lede there, but even on Umami Girl a sentence can only be so long.)
Watercress is a nutritional powerhouse and one of the most nutrient-dense foods on earth. I wish I were that nutrient-dense, to be honest.
Just gonna walk away from that one and act like it’s fine. In the meantime, pop down to the links below to grab the pizza recipe and enter to win a $50 VISA gift card from B&W Growers, just for being the cool customer that you are. (But no purchase necessary, har har.)
