For an unconventional take on breakfast, try this peach pizza, which also features dried cranberries, goat cheese and cinnamon.

Ingredients

6 tbsp. unsalted butter
1⁄4 cup brown sugar    
5 fresh peaches, peeled, sliced
1⁄2 cup dried cranberries
1 oz. goat cheese
1 16-oz. ball pizza dough
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. sugar
2 cups vanilla pastry cream
11⁄2 cups premade streusel crumb topping

Steps

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Melt butter and mix half of butter with brown sugar in large pan. Reserve remaining butter. Bring butter and sugar to boil and add fresh peach slices.

3. Slightly cook peaches in sugar for about 5 minutes. Just before end of cooking, add dried cranberries. Remove from heat and cool.

4. Work pizza dough into 12-in. round. If baking in pizza oven, place round directly onto wooden pizza peel. For standard oven baking, wire screen is suggested.

5. Mix cinnamon and sugar. Brush dough with remaining melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture.

6. Spread pastry cream on top of dough, then shingle peach slices in circular pattern on top.

7. Using slotted spoon, sprinkle cranberries over top of peaches without adding extra caramel. Finish by topping with even distribution of streusel crumb topping.

8. Bake at 400°F in preheated oven until crust is golden brown and crumb topping is toasted, about 18 minutes. Slice and serve warm.

vote buttons pins

On every other Thursday of our four-week cycle menu, we allow K-8 students to pick the entree choices. The media center specialist for each of the participating schools sets up the list of entree items on a computer for voting, and the winning entrees are given to cafeteria managers two weeks before the upcoming month to put into production. Students really like this, as it promotes ownership of the menu.

raised garden beds

We have raised garden beds that residents can reserve and use to grow their own plants. Whenever a resident brings me fresh produce from their own garden, I try and incorporate it into a dish. If I do end up using it, I will display the resident’s name and what the produce was next to the dish on the menu.

Curriculum for the mobile teaching kitchen centers around a single kid-friendly recipe, using ingredients that can provide talking points for nutrition, sustainability and food origins. “The recipe is the lesson,” Saidel says. “Every ingredient is an opportunity to talk.”

Earlier this year, Saidel, Perkins and Harvey did a student demo featuring roasted chicken and white bean tacos with greens and citrus salsa. “We can say, ‘Why are we using chicken instead of beef? Why are there some beans in here?’ You can talk about plant proteins and the sustainability and health message around...
