Moonstruck


Chef Lisa’s Kitchen


“When the moon hits the sky like a big pizza pie…” I love, love, LOVE the movie “Moonstruck” and pizza. Any variety - thin, thick, meat, vegetarian and a delicious combination of both…I basically love pizza. My new favorite way to make a pizza is in a skillet. How easy it is to whip up a combination of seasonal ingredients to create a pizza pie however your heart desires. The best part is having your local SHOP ‘n SAVE available with hundreds of delicious, tasty choices that are affordable and good for you too! Now that’s Just Right!

With the fall season in full swing and so many delicious selections to choose from, I’m excited to share my latest creation…One-Pan Pizza (harvest edition) Caramelized Brussels Sprouts & Bacon. Utilizing SHOP ‘n SAVE Wild Harvest organic and free from products along with Essential Everyday ingredients is a win-win for creating this tasty pizza that is a scrumptious combination of sweet and savory. Who says pizza has to be boring?, not me, I enjoy experimenting with flavors and I am happy to spread the recipes with you all my friends.

When you see that Fall Harvest Moon, just think about rushing to your local SHOP ‘n SAVE and take my One-Pan Pizza recipe with you and enjoy a great autumn favorite dish.

Till next time,
Chef Lisa
