POM Wonderful Pizza

This is what I came home to on Friday night:

Lindsay from POM Wonderful contacted me about a week ago to see if I was interested in receiving some POM to try and review. Absolutely! I didn’t expect that she would send me 8 great bottles, so I was quite surprised when I saw all of this! They are so cute, like a little row of POM people :) POM recently launched a really cool new POM community website. As you know by now, I love brands that go that extra step to engage customers rather than just pushing the product, and the POM community is an amazing way to find new recipes and to learn about the health benefits of POM products. Challenged to come up with unique and delicious POM recipes, I got thinking and decided that my first POM recipe would be a pizza. My pizza was actually inspired by a trip to Todd English’s Figs where we had a fig and gorgonzola pizza with a balsamic reduction. Only this time, the reduction was POM. Please note that the pizza did not come out very pretty, but it tasted amazing. I started with a ball of whole wheat pizza dough from Trader Joe’s, Salem blue cheese, Trader Joe’s chicken apple sausage, and 1/2 bottle of POM Wonderful.

Added the cheese and sausage

And put the pizza in the oven for about 8 minutes at 425. While it was baking, I was reducing POM in a small pan. Yes, we definitely need new pans.

I took the pizza out and drizzled POM reduction all over it. PA171557
Then put it back in the oven for another 4 minutes. The POM reduction baked into the dough and mixed with the melted blue cheese. This created a sweet and salty combination that was just delicious. I served the pizza with a salad of radicchio, butter lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, and an old throwback, Good Seasons zesty Italian dressing.

And a glass of Trader Joe’s Central Coast Zinfandel, which at $4 a bottle, is an amazing deal, a big, fruit forward wine comparable to $12-15 bottles we have purchased. All in all, a great meal and an excellent way to use POM Wonderful! Reducing it really concentrates the flavor and makes it all yummy and syrupy. I am looking forward to more POM cooking and drinking this week. Thanks, Lindsay!

    That looks amazing! I love sweet/savory combos. Figs is good at that!

    That sounds really delicious. I think it actually even looks good, other than the fact that the POM reduction looks a tiny bit…gory. It might make an excellent Halloween pizza. Either way, I’d try it!

    Looks yummy, but what could a vegetarian sub in for chicken sausage?

    It does look quite Halloween-ish, doesn’t it?! I am afraid I am getting even worse on my photography as I go along. A new camera may be in order!

    I originally planned on just figs and blue cheese with the POM drizzle. Thinking about it more, I would add caramelized onions and arugula to the mix. I think those flavors would work well and would add more heft. Maybe portabella mushrooms as well?

    That’s sounds great! I really wanted pancakes at 10:30 last night and still want them, so they may just be dessert tonight!
