Spinach, Feta and Marjoram Pizza

Hi all, I am back! At least for one post… I have been working hard as a cook and I don’t have much time to spare. However, because I am addicted to cooking, I can’t not cook on my days off!

I’d like to take a moment to talk about Door to Door Organics. They offer local products whenever possible and their produce are always very fresh.  They send you a periodical email with your produce list where you can swap a number of items, and you end up with a nice custom basket. You can also cancel the service anytime or put it on hold anytime, which is very handy if you are going on vacation or you have too much from the last delivery. This week we’ve got purple potatoes, baby carrots (the ones with the leaves, so pretty), white mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, yams, onions, pea sprouts, watercress, limes, baby bok choy. Check their web site here. The fun part is to plan a menu with these items.
Today I decided to make some pizza dough and have it topped with spinach from Door to Door Organics. I blanched the spinach so it keeps the bright green color. I also added tomatoes, crumbled feta and marjoram. Drizzle the pizza with some quality olive oil right after baking and presto! We also had some watercress, pea sprouts and celery salad.
