We have made it to Kansas.  My initial thoughts are that Kansas is a beautiful place, and that we are going to be very happy here.  We are staying at a hotel in Kansas City until our household goods arrive next week.  We went to the base today and picked out our house.  I picked the one with the best light in the kitchen.  Are you surprised?  We have never really lived on base before, we lived on base in Canada, but never on a base of this size and on the actual base.  I was really surprised at how nice the base housing is.  The kid’s have a playground in the backyard and right beyond that is where they are going to go to school.  There are a ton of things for the kids to do and a million kids running around.  I look forward to get back into my kitchen and cook again.  I miss real food.

Speaking of food, I made this Corn and Tomato Pizza before we left and it was summer on a piece of pizza.  Corn, fresh pesto, tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella.  This pizza proves that going beyond sauce and cheese is worth the effort.

Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven (the longer that it preheats the better, I try for at least one hour) for about 15 minutes.  The cheese will be melted and the crust golden brown.  Sprinkle with torn basil leaves.

    welcome to KC! i know a few families who have lived on that base and they enjoyed it a lot, the area has a “small town” feel.

    i’m in overland park if you ever want some ideas of what to do in the city (or meet up). the KC area is a really lovely place to be!

    Bree,
    KC recommendations: City Market in KC (Sat and Sun farmers market). It was huge back in April:
    http://www.thecitymarket.org/
    Nelson-Atkins museum: Free art museum, they’ve got mummies and suits of armor and an really cool sculpture garden.
    Arthur Bryant’s BBQ. One of the KC originals. In a bit of a dodgy neighborhood but I went by myself during the day. Kid friendly and quite an experience. I am in love with the original sauce.
    I’d recommend Bluestem as a restaurant, but I want to take you there myself. Welcome!

    • bakedbree says:

      Thanks Kati! We went to Arthur Bryant’s last night and it was so good. We are headed to the farmer’s market this morning after Mass. I can’t wait to get together and see you.

    greetings from a fellow Kansan. Oklahoma Joes is a great place for BBQ. I don’t have many recommendations, I’m kind of a recluse. haha. Deanna Rose is a little farmstead that I believe is free on weekdays, $2 on weekends, with pony rides, a petting zoo, and lots of other stuff that is great for kids.

    Welcome to your new home! I’m glad that you arrived safely! That pizza looks awesome! I might have to try that this weekend. Did you use a special effect on the Welcome to Kansas pic? It has this wonderful look of an old pic….

  6. Kerry says:

    Best of Luck in your new state. Glad you found good kitchen light, your photos are always the best. And I am making my grocery list right now and making this pizza. YUM. Also making those strawberry popsicles. I hope you get to break in your new kitchen real soon!

    • bakedbree says:

      Thank you Kerry! I am missing cooking. I cannot wait to get back into the kitchen. Sounds like a great dinner, corn and tomato pizza and strawberry popsicles.

  7. I would have never in a million years ever thought about putting corn on a pizza, but it looks so light and delicious! Best of luck to you in your new home – good choice on the kitchen : )

    Is that an electric stove I see? Tell me what you think, I have electric now and I HATE it. I have such trouble cooking on it and am dreaming of days with gas cooking again! Hope you manage but I am pretty certain it won’t phase you a bit!

  10. We made grilled pizza last night and I decided that when I make it again (wednesday!!!) we’re going to use pesto as our base along with the tomatoes and basil that the recipe calls for. But corn! I had not thought of corn. Oh, the places this can go! :)

    I really enjoy your blog, although I don’t think I have ever commented before. I am also in KC, but on the Missouri side. I’ve lived here for about ten years and I really love it. There are so many great things to do with kids, good restaurants, awesome farmer’s markets…I could go on and on. I’m sure your family will love it here!

    • bakedbree says:

      I love KC and the whole area. We are pleasantly surprised. We envisioned something entirely different. Love it here.

  13. Jade says:

    Welcome to Kansas! Love your blog, got hooked after I made your Buffalo Chicken Sliders for a work pot luck (went over very, very well). Good luck on unpacking and making the transition to Midwestern living!

  14. Mara says:

    I made this pizza last night and it was so yummy! I used pre-made wheat dough from a local grocery store, but I made the pesto from your other recipe. Thanks for the recipe goodness!! And good luck getting settled in your new home :)

    I have heard some good things about Ft Leavenworth. I thought that would be a great ideal place for us to get stationed someday, but at the moment we are enjoying our tour in Germany! If you ever get a chance, it is a great place to be stationed at too.

    • bakedbree says:

      We are Coast Guard, so the chances of us going to Germany are nil. I have friends that were posted there and loved it. I am jealous!

  16. Aggie says:

    Good luck in KC!

    I want this pizza so bad! The corn is so sweet right now I can just taste it by looking at your pictures!

    I made this pizza last night using a “winter pesto” recipe I have: it uses spinach as the main ingredient with basil added. Anyways, it was SO delicious! Thank you for the great recipe!

  18. Brooke says:

    Hi there! I’ve been reading your blog for a while now n I love it! Your recipes are wonderfully delicious and your pictures are amazing! I hope you get settled into your ‘new life’ soon n I wish u n your family all the best!

  19. I can’t wait to make this pizza…it looks so delicious!

  20. Jackie says:

    I tried this recipe tonight and it turned out great! One trick my mom showed me for cutting basil… place the leaves one on top of the other and slice like that, all together. They will come out in really pretty thin strips instead of tearing it. Thanks again for the recipe!
