Squash Blossom Pizza

Show Off Your Gorgeous Squash Blossoms!

Pizza Night! Squash Blossom Pizza!  The Pampered Chef pizza crust is the perfect palette for them! Found an amazing “new to me” farm stand in Minooka- Creekside Natural Farm, and they had the most fabulous, gorgeous farm stand. Plan a culinary adventure at least once a month! What a very special place- with tons of stunning freshly picked garlic, herbs, peppers and more! They have farm-fresh eggs! What a find!

Squash blossoms aren’t just bursting with stunning color, they are also nutritious. Squash Blossoms are loaded with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, calcium and more.

Thank you so much to Marion and Karen for hosting your Pampered Chef party the other night and inspiring this splendid meal!
