Gourmet Tailgate Recipe, Anyone? Try Burpee’s Playoff Pizza

According to USA Today, tailgaters are getting creative with gourmet food on game day.  And fresh, locally sourced foods are at the heart of these recipes—especially vegetables.

 

Thinking about what to serve at your pre-game party this weekend?  For a no-hassle, gourmet crowd-pleaser, Burpee recommends its Playoff Pizza recipe. 

 

The artisan-style Playoff Pizza features fresh, good-for-you ingredients such as cherry tomatoes, garden-grown leeks, garlic and fresh herbs like basil and thyme.  Best of all, the recipe is simple to make, calling for ready-made pizza crust and requiring less than a half hour of your time to prepare and bake.  For the full recipe, click here.

 

Burpee’s Playoff Pizza is just one of six garden-fresh recipes in Burpee’s Garden-Gating collection, which also includes healthier, gourmet versions of tailgate staples like hot dogs, hamburgers and hoagies.  To see Burpee’s entire Garden-Gating recipe collection, please click here.

Gardening Tip of the Day

  • New gardeners can’t go wrong with annual flowers. Planted in average soil and deeply watered once a week, annuals will provide a summer’s worth of wonderful blooms. Started from seed or set out as transplants, these winners will really perform if a few inches of compost are worked into the soil before planting.

    Try wax-leaf begonia in partial shade. Cleome is perfect for the background where it gets full sun. Impatiens is wonderful in the shade. Lantana loves hot weather with flowers from yellow to orange to lavender. Torenia, or wishbone flower, is a relatively new ""toughie."" It grows best in partial shade loves heat. Zinnias are tough sun lovers that really put on a show in a variety of colors.
