I’m starting to realize putting nuts on pizza is a thing. Who knew? It makes sense — I mean when you order a cheese plate at a restaurant sometimes it comes with nuts or some kind of fig jelly. However, I think the man in my life may be getting a little tired of these girly pizzas. Every time he has been asking, “where’s the sauce? where’s the meat?!”

Nevertheless, I continue to love my little pizza creations. I’d like to come up with my own unique concoction sometime soon but for now, I’ve got a list of awesome combos to try. Today’s was sweet and light — which is generally a perfect pairing for dinner in my opinion. Hope you enjoy!
