Feed The Resistance: Pizza-Spiced Nuts

This Sunday is the big Sips & Slices pizza party for The River Food Pantry.  Both Dee and I will be there with our pizza creations – and of course you are invited to come try all the pizzas and vote for your favorite.  A big thank you to Ian’s Pizza, who will be cooking up all the pizzas on Sunday, and to Vintage Brewing Company, who has produced a special  beer just for the occasion – “River Red Lager” is on sale now at all Vintage locations, with a buck from every pint going to The River Food Pantry!

With all that in mind, I wanted to do something pizza-related this week.  What I settled on was “Pizza-Spiced Nuts.”  Basically it’s nuts, with a bunch of pizza spices (Oregano, Garlic, Onion, Basil, Fennel, etc.) and some croutons thrown in to mimic the pizza crust.  The nuts really smelled like a fresh pizza coming out of the oven…and the taste was spot-on!

To pair with the nuts, Dee brought in “73 Kolsch” (named for Badger Football great – Joe Thomas) from Great Lakes Brewing Company, which worked perfectly to mellow out some of the spices in the nut mix.
