We have a regular pizza night in our house and there is always a bit of competition on how to change it up. Has anyone watched the Chef's Table pizza series on Netflix? It is inspiring. So what's a girl to do? So many ideas, so hard to fit them all into one little website!
I love, (I mean LOVE) brown butter, and I love pumpkin, (butternut squash to all my Americans) and together with some crispy sage they are a match made in heaven. You will see that flavour combo appear quite regularly on here. Try it out, you will be hooked. Add the hot base of a puffy pizza dough, well. What more can I add? Pizza night anyone?
Here are a few of my other brown butter recipes for you to get into:
There are many many more...many more...are you catching my drift? I love brown butter.
