Purple and Orange Pizza

Mizuna is one of my favorite leafy greens and I doubt I would have ever tried it had it not come into my kitchen via CSA box! The stems are neither tough nor stringy so the long narrow leaves make for great additions to salads and sandwiches. It is more flavorful than lettuce, but doesn’t bite like watercress.

This month the CSA box contained a special surprise: purple mizuna! I decided that this called for an extra measure of creativity.
