After a day spent working our farm’s market garden, we love to crank up the oven and have an impromptu pizza night. Turnips grow in abundance at Tumbleweed Farm, and not only are the roots delicious, but their greens are equally as tasty. Turnip greens have a lovely bite to them and are absolutely wonderful whipped into a tasty pesto. This pizza is a great way to incorporate the whole plant — roots and greens! You can also mix in arugula or substitute it completely if you want to bulk up the turnip greens. Simple, delicious, and farm-fresh, this pie pairs great with a few cold beers after a long day of work, and we hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.
