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

  • If your corn crop didn’t produce well last season it could be due to several of these common problems:
    * Seeds were planted too close together and became overcrowded.
    * Plants did not receive enough fertilizer. Corn is a heavy feeder and especially needs nitrogen for optimal development.
    * Crop was not adequately weeded or watered when weather was dry.
    * Weather was too cold before corn could mature. Try using a hybrid corn variety bred for shorter growing seasons.
    * Corn was poorly pollinated. To prevent poor pollination, plant corn in blocks instead of long rows.
    * Crop was not rotated or stalks were left in the garden over the winter. Rotate corn to a different place every year and remove old foliage to prevent disease and insect problems. Plant a cover crop to renew soil where corn was growing.
