  1. Oh my goodness that looks amazing and is going on my to do list - up high on the list! I am posting a recipe with purple cabbage today but it is not at all impressive whereas that pizza made my jaw drop in amazement and excitement. Absolutely gorgeous!

    1. Thank you so so much Johanna.
      I made another dish with the other half of the red cabbage but it never got photographed. I may have to make it again as it was really tasty and just as colourful as this pizza.
      I will come on over to GGG in a little while.

    2. my cabbage dish is nowhere near as impressive looking as yours (it lost its colour after I left it a while) but I think you will be interested to see how I used the rest of the laverbread!

    3. I am coming on over now.

  2. Wow - your purple posts / recipes are so vibrant! This looks especially colourful.

    1. Thanks Kari. If I had taken a photograph of it after, i def. would have lost that vibrancy.

  3. I really love the look of this pizza. I'm getting so hungry now looking at your posts.

  4. That looks fantastic, a real feast for the eyes as well as the tummy :-)

    1. Thank you so much Sue, it made for an interesting change.
