Did you know that gorgonzola is a type of blue cheese, so… All gorgonzola’s are blues but not all blues are gorgonzola! And… If you think that’s clever… Did you know that fennel is actually part of the carrot family and not the onion family? Lots of learning for me with this week’s recipe of the week – Express Caramelized Fennel, Onion & Gorgonzola Pizza! We have added the word “express” because we wanted something tasty and quick this week, so… You can use a good tomato passata (like Salsa De Nona) and good quality store bought pizza bases (like Smokehouse). Of course, you could also do it all on your own and for those that are keen, we have included a recipe for DIY Italian style pizza sauce! Now, we weren’t 100% sure with the choice of cheese, but we figured given that the caramelized fennel & onion were sweet, something salty to balance would work. The salty creaminess of the gorgonzola worked perfectly to balance the sweetness, and… I’m sure you could just as easily go for a Persian feta or some other type of creamy feta if you’re not a blue cheese fan. And if you weren’t so keen on a salty cheese, a buffalo mozzarella would be fine too! Confession time. One thing that could have improved this pizza was some freshness. Some rocket on top would have been a very appropriate choice or even a rocket salad served on the side. The green would have made this a complete meal. And if you like wine, a glass of Sangiovese or Nebbiolo and Roberto’s your uncle! For the full recipe visit our website & if you'd like our recipes emailed to you every week, sign up to our list.

Let's have a whole, plain baked cauliflower with no sauce or spice for lunch @emmjaneg said. Intrigued, and a little scared, I agreed. 😜 Very nice, especially with the smashed potato with herbs and sourcream and chickpea salad. #israelifood #vegetarian #lunch #foodie #melbmoment #melb_insta #melbourneiloveyou #cauliflower #eatingout #foodiemelbourne #melbonpix #foodadventure #potato #healthyeating #healthyfood
