I came up with yet another unique way to use the Gaia Goodness Banana Mango Ketchup. I know I know, you’re asking “When and where can I get some of this stuff already?” Well you can be an integral part in making that happen by participating in The Gaia Goodness Company fundraiser.
I’m raising $7,000 to pay for three months worth commercial kitchen rental and all the materials and ingredients needed to produce 600 jars of Banana Mango Ketchup in 2oz, 5oz, and 12oz sizes. This money will also cover insurance and a health department permit that will allow me sell to the public via an online store and at local Farmers Markets in Los Angeles.
You can make a donation right now by clicking on the “Donations” button in the sidebar. Donors who contribute $50 or more will receive a 5oz jar of Banana Mango Ketchup, a recipe e-card, your name posted on The Gaia Goodness ‘Wall of Donors’, and 10% off your first Gaia Goodness purchase both online and where ever Gaia Goodness products are sold. You can also support my upcoming IndieGoGo crowd funding campaign that will be launched in a few weeks. I will be offering some VERY exciting and exclusive perks to donors who contribute to the IndieGoGo campaign so you definitely want to stay updated on the launch.
In the mean time, I continue to experiment with the different ways you can use Banana Mango Ketchup. With that being said, Sweet Potato and Sage pizza is on the menu today and it tastes absolutely out of this world! I used Gaia Goodness Banana Mango Ketchup as the pizza sauce which paired perfectly with the sweet potato, sage, and pineapple. If you haven’t made your donation yet and don’t have Banana Mango ketchup on hand, you can mash up some of the roasted sweet potato and blend it with balsamic reduction (included in this recipe) in a blender or food processor to make a delicious tangy pizza sauce.
For this recipe you will need either raw or pre-baked pizza dough. Obviously pre-baked dough is easier to handle, but I find that the raw dough creates a crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside crust. Be sure to follow the instructions listed on the pizza dough package.
You’ll also need some roasted sweet potatoes, grated Gruyere cheese, Ricotta cheese, fried Sage leaves, grilled pineapple slices (I bought mine pre-sliced), red onions, chopped Jalapeno peppers, fresh minced garlic, sea salt, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and molasses. We will also be using a balsamic reduction to drizzle over the pizza. For the complete ingredients list and cooking instructions, click here.
