the improvisational pizza baker!

I was out walking my buddy Nook in downtown Ithaca Tuesday...Cascadilla Falls is behind him, totally frozen!  A little trickle coming out the bottom.  My southern friends are thinking "a frozen waterfall???? how could it be????" and everybody else is like "there are houses hanging over that gorge?!" and its like YES and also "downtown Ithaca has waterfalls there????" YES, Ithaca has 150 waterfalls I believe and I remember hearing once, 100 years ago, Niagara Falls froze too.  People walked out and under and had a look....anyway, look at the pretty handmade iron gate with oak leaves!

I was walking Penny and wrote this haiku on the spot:

My adorable
Beagle ate pizza off the
Street. Gross.  Could be worse.

So that got me thinking Sunday "I wonder if there is such a thing as a recipe for VEGAN CURRY PIZZA?" and of COURSE there is...

I made it Monday....and again Tuesday, because I a) liked it so much and b) had improvements in mind and wanted to try it out!
(ie, the pizza is very simple, and you make a curry sauce....I wanted to try the second time with MORE curry sauce, which was an awesome idea--the pizza is made on a regular crust and I used my usual, and you make an easy curry sauce, top with onions, chickpeas and sweet potato, OH MY!)

You probably need a pair of sweet tiny dishes (spoon rest, teabag holder, etc!) for sale now at my etsy shoppe!

That's a beautiful gate. What an interesting pizza. Bet it was tasty!

Mmmmm...curry and pizza together. Is it the new chocolate and peanut butter? Looks good!

We had Indian food for dinner last night too. This sounds great. I'll have to try it.
Great Gate!

beautiful gate! pizza sounds delish, I wish Jeff liked curry as much as I do.

I'd happily try that curry pizza, and this northerner is a true believer in frozen waterfalls! I still regret not driving out on a cold, icy day in Northern Virginia to see the Potomac River frozen over near Leesburg/White's Ferry. That would have been a sight to see!
