Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everybody! While you stuff yourself with green beer, corned beef, and McDonald’s Shamrock Shakes, I’ll be sipping something I’m calling the Blood Leprechaun. It’s a green tomato and tomatillo-based Bloody Mary that cranks up the heat with CaJohn’s Irish Scream hot sauce in it.
Over the last year or so, I’ve delved deeply into the world of pizza. It’s culminating with the Pizza Trivia book I’m writing with Dave and Lois. Maybe that’s why I got the notion in my head yesterday to put together a Saint Patrick’s Day pizza of my own. As much beer as people put away for the holiday, a theme pizza seemed a natural.
