Need Side Dish ideas for homemade pizza
Making Pizza for a batch of friends tonight, and I need some ideas on what to serve on the side. Someone is already bringing a fresh green salad, so I'd like another side to serve as well.
Preferably, something I can prep earlier in the day, so I can spend more time on the pizzas.....
White bean salad? (Rosemary, white beans, little bit of white or red wine vinegar, salt, and rosemary and maybe red pepper flakes?) I tihnk some protein would be nice.
If you put the right things on top you won't need anything extra on the side. Well, maybe a glass of wine or two...
Not knowing what toppings you're gonna put on the pizza makes this tricky. How 'bout a serving dish containing marinated artichoke hearts, several kinds of olives, marinated mushrooms, and pickled peperoncini for people who can tolerate a little heat.
You may need to go out or send someone out to buy these comestibles. If you decide on this idea, you won't have to make anything from scratch.
because of the tomato sauce, i've never been a fan of salads or marinated foods with pizza. broccoli rabe with garlic and red pepper flakes, or garlicky spinach would be my call. roasted cauliflower with pine nuts and golden raisins would be good to. these veg dishes also work room temp, so you could make them ahead.
