Stained glass pizza

I’ve made this before, but didn’t get pics last time:

It’s the “Rainbow Beet Pizza” from Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François’s Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day: red and golden beets, sliced paper thin on a mandolin, placed over a layer of shredded cheddar cheese and drizzled with olive oil. The crust is the same spelt flour dough I used to make the Turkish pita boats.

At our house we also refer to this as the Christopher Moore pizza, because the first time I tweeted about it @TheAuthorGuy responded (I’m paraphrasing): “Gosh! That sounds delicious! Wish I had some!”*

*(Actual Chris Moore quote: “AN ABOMINATION!”)

My final verdict: Tasty, but the kind of thing you make more for the visual impact than the flavor.

Today I am off to the International District again to shop for organ meats. Christmas is coming!
