Zucchini galette with pepperoni on

Did you see that fantastic blueberry galette that I made the other day? Well, as I mentioned, I used store-bought crust. This will probably cause my mother to have a fit. It definitely meas that I had another crust left, though, since they come in packs of two.

What does one do with another pie crust? Make another galette! Alex doesn’t like blueberries, so it made no sense to make another sweet one. This one’s savory but just as easy. It’s a quick main dish and easily paired with a salad for an easy dinner!

    You’re right. I’m having a fit. We’ll make pie crust the next time I visit and then you can put homemade pie crust in the freezer for your next galette. It looks delish and I’ll be trying it myself with my own crust, thank you very much. 🙂

    That sounds wonderful. I will definitely try it! I made the blueberry galette twice last week since I have 20 lbs of blueberries in my frig. Delicious!
