Pizza with Parsnips and Blue Cheese

Well, dear readers, with all my travels it has been a thin month so far for recipes. But now I am home again and hopefully not going anywhere again for while. With that, here's a tasty new pizza.

1 14-inch pizza crust
olive oil
1-2 tsp butter
3-4 medium parsnips, peeled and sliced in thin rounds (woody cores removed if needed)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1-2 oz. crumbled local blue cheese of your choice
2-3 oz. shredded mozzarella

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lightly paint the pizza crust with olive oil.

Melt the butter in a medium skillet, then add the parsnips. Saute over medium heat, stirring frequently, until tender (7-10 minutes). Add salt and pepper to taste.

Spread the tomato sauce over the pizza crust, then top with parsnips. Sprinkle with blue cheese, then top with mozzarella. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until crust is done and cheese begins to brown.

Serves 3-4.
