St Patrick's Day Pizza
Whoa! I've really neglected the blog recently... sorry about that! Racing to get the main areas of the house organized and cleaned up. No small task, considering that the dining room was still being used as temporary storage for everything that belonged in the kitchen. As we have enough of the shelves done to move forward, I'm re-populating them with everything that's been in the dining room. It may not sound like much, but it's a lot of fussy decision making, as much as anything. The new cabinetry layout is completely different from the old one, so I need to figure out where I want everything to be.
Anyway, the big cleaning rush is on account of our "St Pi-trick's Day" party this weekend. Just finished the menu up last night - it's going to be GOOD! For the uninitiated: My husband's favorite "holiday" is Pi Day (He's a major math nerd), while my favorite is St Patrick's Day (Irish Canadian, here!). Usually, we celebrate the two together, ON Pi day. Loads of pi trivia, round foods, etc... with a heavy Irish theme running on top of it. Just finished our menu last night - it'll be awesome!
If you're looking for something unique to serve for your own celebrations this time of year - I've got the recipe for you! Behold: St Patrick's Day Pizza!
I created this St Patrick's Day Pizza recipe for our pi day celebrations a few years ago, and it's been a March staple for us ever since. It's basically the result of wondering "What's the best way to combine the two themes, in one epic main dish?". Well... now you know!
This recipe starts with a flavorful, tender beer based rye crust, and continues with (Canadian style) colcannon, one of our favorite things ever. Top with some corned beef, cabbage, and Irish cheddar... there you have it. St Pi-trick's Day perfection!
