Speck and Salad Pizza

Makes 2 large or 4 small pizzas
by Tenina Holder

You’re never going to believe that mustard could taste so good and on a pizza as well?? Trust me...(she says) you will find yourself using mustard as a pizza spread often. SO delicious. I got this idea when working in Switzerland for the parent company of Thermomix, Vorwerk International. I kind of miss those good ole days.

Well who wouldn’t right? Visiting Europe twice a year was tough, but someone had to go! And of course when there we managed to eat out A LOT. And this was one of the great ideas I brought home with me...until next time! Salute to Switzerland!!
