You know what I appreciate the very most as a food writer/ recipe developer?

When other people cook for me. Oh yes indeed, I do. That might be the reason we eat out a lot for dinner, after spending hours in my kitchen baking for my new cookbook that is on the way, I am ready for someone else to do the work. I LOVE when other people make dinner, whether it’s friends, family or a restaurant.It is such a treat for me.

The family and I went over to Nicole’s (the mind behind VV Boutique Style) for dinner and a visit a while back and we were treated to a feast fit for royalty. meaning that it was far too good for the likes of us.

We also went to see their new puppy and yes, River is a puppy. She’s a Burmese Mountain Dog and was already larger than Root Beer will ever be when we saw her at a mere couple of months old.

I want one. Look at those eyes and that face! Ack!!

Ok, back to the food. Nicole made a seriously amazing phyllo pizza for us to eat and while it makes a great appetizer for large groups I daresay that it would be great as a main meal for a family of four.

Phyllo sheets are pulled apart, have butter brushed in-between them and pressed together to make an amazing crust. Tomatoes, onions and basil are the main flavors of this pizza making it a great vegetarian appetizer as well.

This recipe is straight from the Best of Bridge cookbooks which are some of the best cookbooks out there.

Did I mention the cheese?

Parmesan is sandwiched between the phyllo.

Mozzarella tops it.

Oh yes, there is cheese my friends.

I absolutely fell in love with this. The light phyllo pastry is so much better than a traditional pizza crust in so many ways, especially for an appetizer. While it’s slightly finicky to work with, once you get a rhythm going it’s easy. Especially if you were the one watching Nicole do all the work while enjoying a gin basil smash.

Ohh. Those Gin Basil Smashes. You know what, that’s another story. Come back in a day or two for that one!

As for this, make it for your holiday parties, make it for your dinner, I don’t care if you eat it in a shoe with a goat on a hill (you’re welcome for completely wrecking Dr Seuss there) you need to eat this, and soon!

    Can you make ahead of time, and bake just before.

  2. Kathy says

    Best of Bridge has a superb dinner recipe. If you haven’t tried it yet, don’t miss out. It’s “Classy Chicken.” The first time I made it for my son (43) he loved it and always wants me to make it more often. Like “once a week.” He even makes it himself for others to try.

    We had pizza? No recollection. 😉
