To see images of my past posts & get links to the recipes – look on my Pinterest board – HERE.


I LOVE CELERY ROOT.  It has a creamy, delicate but fresh flavor I cannot get enough of.  I am not such a huge fan of fennel but, when used correctly, it, too, has a refreshing quality.  I combined the two here on a pizza so thin that it doesn’t really qualify as a pizza – but rather – a flat bread.  It is light & has a nuanced flavor that makes it a perfect little appetizer.



There is no real recipe for this concoction of mine beyond:

Pizza dough

celery root


olive oil

Parmesan cheese

celery root & fennel tops – chopped for garnish

You simply roll your dough out very thin, top it with a little Parmesan, very thinly shaved celery root & fennel & a tiny bit more Parmesan.  Drizzle with olive oil and S&P to taste & bake at 450 degrees until your crust is browned & the cheese is turning golden.  Garnish with chopped celery leaves & the dilly little sprigs from the fennel.
