6.2.16


Hey, hey, hola! How’s February so far?! To be honest, I still in January mood… don’t you, too?! But it’s time to shake it off and start embracing this new month! And so in the spirit of happiness, I want to share with you this super awesome (+ budget friendly) recipe/idea!  Some of you have asked for easier vegetarian meals in the short survey that I’ve recently sent you, and so here it is one favorite of ours! 

So, these Pizzetas, as we call them in Argentina are (as you can see) Baguette Bread Pizzas. But as simple as they look, they are seriously delicious in flavor. Let me tell you that these can be easily made ‘literally’ in no time. And ‘for all of us crazy over wholesome food I think this recipe/idea is a pretty nice way to eat well, healthy enjoyable vegetarian food on the budget!  

They can be load with many different vegetables, you can make them with or without cheese, plus you can also use any bread of your choice, from a french baguette, sourdough baguette or seed bread to add even more nutrition to your pizzetas. 

We love having these on the weekends, they’re just perfect for those days when you just want to relax and watch a movie at home or simply are not in the mood for spending tons of time in the kitchen. Artichoke, black olives, tomatoes, feta cheese and basil is the one flavor we enjoy the most in our Pizzetas, but Lia likes mozzarella and tomatoes! (Kids just love these).


Happy Weekend!!!

I hope you'll have some fun preparing and creating your favorite vegetarian pizzeta topping at home. As always I’d love connecting with you,  share with me in the comments below or via Twitter!
