This pizza makes tasty use of spring vegetables. Top your pizza with fiddleheads and asparagus for a delicious fresh pizza. Make the most of this year’s fiddlehead season!
I was absolutely thrilled when Loblaws Companies Inc. reached out to me to work with them on a new project. The focus of this campaign is fiddlehead recipes. They are absolutely delicious and available for only a short time.
My recommendation is to run right out to the store this very minute to grab some fiddleheads while you can. You’re going to want to whip up this pizza while you have the chance. It’s perfection.
The key to seasonal cooking is cooking at the height of freshness. It’s really important to use fresh ingredients immediately. If you are looking for fiddleheads check out Loblaws so you know where to buy in-season foods.
If you’re unfamiliar with cooking fiddleheads please know you MUST cook them before using them. For real, people. Do not skip this step. For food safety reasons make sure you boil, or steam, your fiddleheads prior to use.
Okay, now that we have that out of the way, let’s move on.
Growing up in Canada comes with some perks. One perk is Loblaws stores. The other perk is great food memories and history. My Dad loved fiddleheads. I’m not exaggerating. He was over the moon for them.
We all grew up eating them as kids. My Dad was the kind of man was old school. You ate what was on the table. No exceptions. At the time we hated the rule. Now as an adult, I appreciate that my Dad did it.
I think it taught us to appreciate lots of different kinds of food. We ate so much variety. I was usually the one who fought all of my Dad’s rules and choices. Now I’m grateful he opened us up to different foods.
One of those foods is fiddleheads. I had no idea they were so yummy when I was a kid. I just thought they looked funny. Let’s be honest, they do look funny. That’s okay though, most delicious food does….
