Feast Your Eyes: Squash Blossom Pizza

July 26, 2013

Each week, we'll be scanning through recipes for exceptional photos from our community, and sharing our favorites.

Today: It's a fact: squash blossoms can make the most beautiful dish even better. 

This pizza is beautiful in its own right. With a charred crust, vibrant tomato sauce, and flakes of spicy pepper, it looks like it came right out of a hot brick oven. And karen bianchi, the cook and photographer of this pizza masterpiece, clearly knows something we don't about shaping dough. But what really pushes this pizza over the top is the addition of squash blossoms. Because if there's anything better than looking at pretty flowers, it's eating them.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.
