    Love your last reason “because I told you so!”…I will definitely seek out bitter greens soon and everything you put on that pizza sounds like a lovely balance!

    I’ve had dandelion greens in my CSA box before. I added them to a salad, and made a warm dressing with caramelized onions and balsamic vinegar. It worked very well (I guess very similar to your pizza!). I like dark leafy greens, and luckily they show up quite frequently in my CSA box. Massaged kale and kale chips are some of my favorites.

    dandelion greens are suppose to be really good for digestion i hear :D. u could try making dandelion chips! lol. i’m a huge green leafy eater, esp. for my veggie juices or massage salad bowls or steamed salads! i prolly would steam dandelions b/c its so strong and bitter. perhaps dandelion wraps could work?

    This sounds so good!! Doesn’t anything taste great on pizza?! I love greens on pizza, especially spinach. I like the idea of pinenuts on the pizza to, I have never tried that before.
    So, I posted this on StumbleUpon (I’m new to the site) and wanted the pizza picture to show up, but it didn’t. Any ideas on how to get pictures to show up on that site?

    I grew up in the Midwest (USA) and we ate dandelion greens often. My mother prepared them like fresh spinach. They’re delicious with malt vinegar over the top. I do recall picking what seemed like bushels all for one meal. They do shrink, don’t they :)
    This pizza looks amazing! Must give it a try!

    Caroline, Nelly, Valerie, Regan-Thanks so much for the comment love!

    Andrea, Junia and Patti-love your ideas for dandelion greens and kale. Thx for sharing! And, yes, dandelion greens are supposed to help with digestion, and they can also act as a diuretic!

    Lisa-I <3 arugala too!

    Marisa-Thx for the bitter greens inspiration!!!

    Amy, Alison, and Kristen-Glad you like the pizza, and hope you give it a try!

    Laura-Thanks for the “bitter greens” suggestion! I still need to visit an Asian market so I can give your stir-fry Gain Lan a try :-)

    ooh a green on a gluten free pizza this is awesome. I like dandelions in salads but Carolyn in my office is scared of them. I am going to tweet her this.

    I have a taste for and fondness for all bitter greens, luckily, cosidering how beneficial they are. I am so glad it’s summer- I buy them at my local organic farm. I like collard greens, swiss chard, mustard greens, arugula, turnip greens, chicory, escarole… I put them in my vitamix with a little fruit and make a very large green smoothie each day (Monday through Friday) for ease of assimilation. I am a cancer patient and survivor and food is my medicine. Organic, mostly raw, produce has kept me healthy and alive for twenty years. I eat them raw, as is, for a quick snack. Collard greens with raw hemp butter and a little miso paste spread on them is tasty. Turnip greens with raw almond butter and a sprinkle of himalayan sea salt is excellent. I add them to salads, vegan soups and bean and vegetable recipes I concoct each night for dinner. Saturday night is the only time my husband and I share a meal, sort of. He orders a regular plain cheese pizza, well done and I have one with vegan marinara sauce and fresh veggies. Tonight’s was half grated carrots and yellow pepper and half raw dandelion greens. I am very strict, 90% percent of the time, with my health regimen and go off a little, 10% of the time to please my husband. My body seems to able to tolerate it and it makes Jeff happy. I just wish he would incorporate some of my healthy and natural foods into his diet more often.
