One of the cheapest dinner hacks you can make yourself has got to be pizza. Sure, plain old mozzarella and sauce would make a great pizza feast, but if you've got some bits and bobs of cheese laying around, an onion and a beet or two, be prepared for a round of applause from your dinner guests.
I’m the only one in the house who likes beets, so I don’t make them all that much. If I hit upon a beautiful bunch of beets at the farmers market, with the greens still intact, I find myself wrought with a little excitement. This beet pizza turned out really delicious, with a crisp crust, lots of different flavors and textures – salty, sweet, crunchy, soft, and chewy. I kept about 2" of the tops on my beets when roasting, and included some of these tender pieces on the pizza.
The pizza dough recipe is adapted from The Silver Spoon, one of my favorite cookbooks.
The topping quantities listed are for one pie only. Double the topping ingredients if you decide to make two Beet Pizzas. —mrslarkin
