Edamame Pizza? We know what you’re thinking, has Papa Za lost his mind, or has he just ran out of pizza ideas?… Far from it my friends. This Edamame pizza recipe recipe may be pretty far out there, but it can get right in our belly any day of the week. Make sure you don’t eat those shells though, some say they’re poisonous and some say they’re just too darn tough to eat, either way, we say good-day to you Edamame shells!
Something special happens when you aggressively season these delightful little pods. And things really kick up the jams when you make our edamame sauce. Garlic, sesame oil, red crushed pepper and of course our good pal soy sauce. Weird pizza this may be but it still reigns supreme soybean!
