Firstly, let’s make the dough. Here is the link to my tried […]

Today we are taking a little break from my ‘potatoes in disguise’ posts. When I wrote about discovering that carrot tops were edible and could be transformed into pesto (recipe found here) my husband and co-captain, François, commented that it would be great used in a pizza, his all time fave food. For a while now he has patiently put up with my food mood […]

Homemade Naan or pita bread is easy to throw together in the morning to have ready for an evening barbecued pizza. (my stove top recipe here ) The plan was to make a […]

Out first of the season onboard meal …and my first try out of the new galley stove. While we are on shore power it functions as a traditional stove with an element. While underway or at anchor, it can be used as a typical alcohol burning stove. I brought all the necessary ingredients onboard for a little pizza feast thinking it would be a real […]

Here I am again with another great vegetarian meal for you. Just make some extra polenta for your dinner, (my recipe for Creamy Sage Polenta) spread the leftovers onto a baking sheet while it is still warm, and tomorrow night you will be able to enjoy this yummy pizza. It’s not the sort of pizza you can just pick up and eat with your hands […]
