The Last Days of Summer

Arlington County schools open right after Labor Day, so this is it for summer 2018!  But, don't worry.  Our bountiful Farmers Market will be with us into November!  Come by to hang out with neighbors, listen to some live music, grab some breakfast (and coffee!), taste some ethnic treats, and get all your fruits, vegetables, and baked goods for the week.  Visit Barrett Elementary School in Arlington on Saturday, August 25, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.  We'll see you at the Market!

Preheat oven to 425°. Position an oven rack in the next to lowest setting. Place a 16-inch pizza pan on the rack.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan, and swirl to coat. Add 2 cups onion and thyme to pan; cook for 3 minutes or until the onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Add bell pepper and garlic to pan; cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add corn, salt, and black pepper to pan; cook for 1 minute or until thoroughly heated.

Roll dough into a 16-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Remove pan from oven. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Place dough on pan. Arrange mozzarella slices evenly over dough.
