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

  • It's worth the effort it takes to rig supports at planting time for the tall garden plants. Relatively self-reliant standbys such as hollyhocks, cleome, cosmos, and sunflowers are still vulnerable to gusty winds, heavy summer downpours, running kids and dogs or stray flying objects like soccer balls. Tie single-stemmed plants individually. Use green bamboo stakes or equally sturdy sticks long enough to be within six inches of the mature height of the plant after being sunk in the ground 10 or 12 inches. Fasten the stem to the stake with unobtrusive green string or plant ties wrapped first around the stake, then loosely around the stem then back to the stake.
