The average American consumer 23 pounds of pizza per year. You know why– because it is beer’s best friend. Obviously that means it is the perfect St. Patty’s Day dinner. If you’re not drinking beer (cough Guinness) today there are only a handful of acceptable excuses: you’re pregnant,
you’re under 21, or you’re drinking Irish whiskey instead.
Women are twice as likely to choose vegetables for their pizza’s toppings, so it should come as no surprise that my St. Patty’s Day pie was 100 percent vegetarian. Crispy thin pizza crust topped with yellow tomatoes, French green beans, mushrooms, caramelized balsamic red onions, fresh mozzarella cheese and freshly shaved Parmesano Reggiano right as it came out of the oven. Who wouldn’t want this with a celebratory green beer?
Irish you a Happy St. Patty’s Day!
