Epazote would work if you make an Al Pastor pizza. It has pineapple.I have an idea. It was possibly a lightbulb moment (why don't we have a 'lightbulb moment' emoticon @SatNavSaysStraightOn?). Anyway, I was thinking of how I could use a herb to bring a new dimension to the pizza. I was watering the plants and there it was - Epazote!
I bought the plant thanks to @CraigC, as we had discussed it as a flavouring in Mexican dishes. Its possibly an acquired taste but I reckon with sweet charred pineapple and some funky Italian charcuterie, it might just hit the spot. Epazote has a pungent flavour and is often described by as “medicinal." My gardener says it smells like tar!
What do you think @CraigC - or anyone else who knows this herb?
