Pizza Bites on the menu? Try pairing with Sparkling rosé and Sparkling Wine. If you're serving a selection of appetizers, you can't go wrong with these. Both are very food friendly and complement a variety of flavors. The Zonin Sparkling rosé with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 18 dollars per bottle.

Zonin Sparkling Rose

Luminous, blushcolor with a seductively delicate perlage Pleasant, intense, and fruity on the nose; evokes memories of wisteria flowers and Renetta apples Well blended and delightfully pleasing; soft and smooth on the palate with floral notes and a hint of almond Excellent as an aperitif and an ideal accompaniment to hors d'oeuvres, risotto, fried zucchini flowers, and grilled fish

Instructions

Chop pumpkin using a food processor until rice-like. Saut pumpkin in hot olive oil for 3 minutes. Set aside and let cool. Mix feta and mozzarella; add, one at a time, eggs. Mix and combine. Add pumpkin and spices, mix well until well blended. Evenly spoon the mixture into the greased muffin tin molds. Press pizza dough down evenly and firmly (the pressing down firmly is very important to make sure they stick together). Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes at 200C. Remove the pizza bites from the oven and let set until cool (this is also very important let the pizza bites set in their pan for 5 10 minutes before removing if you take them out while they are too hot they will break).

Tips

Health Tips

  • With feta cheese, a little goes a long way, so you probably don't need to worry about using low fat varieties (plus, research suggests people who eat full fat dairy are thinner than those who eat reduced fat products!)

  • Unfortunately feta cheese is high in sodium, so if you're watching your sodium intake you might need to substitute another cheese. Some say rinsing the cheese also reduces its sodium content.

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Traditionally, feta cheese is made from sheep's or goat's milk (or a combination of the two). Now some supermarkets sell "feta-style" cheeses made from cow's milk. If you want the authentic feta experience, be sure to read the label carefully.

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.
