radicchio pizza with truffle oil

I first learned how to make this pizza from my friend Liz. She used a super groovy organic, sourdough spelt crust from Berkshire Mountain Bakery in Woodstock, NY. Really, any whole grain crust will do. Christopher and I went to visit her at her amazing home in Woodstock. She picked us up from the train station with treats that she made for us; nori rolls with endive and walnuts (recipe to come!). She took us on a hike… then we all drove to the Woodstock Animal Sanctuary. It was a great day and night.This pizza is perfect for dinner parties, or just a cozy night at home. If you haven’t made this yet, I highly recommend it for flirts and vegans. It is so good! I haven’t had it in a little while, and would love some right about now! Hope you like it!!

    I made this the other day and it was fantastic! Although I could not find Radicchio available in my local supermarkets, I used Cabbage instead and it turned out amazing! Everyone who came over enjoyed it and one guest dipped it in Hummus and said it went with it perfectly!
