Watercress Pesto Pizza with Blue Cheese and Balsamic Glaze | Umami GirlIt’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.

Wait, what?

Never mind.
