Cob Oven Pizzas from GROWop: Corn Not Included
This Third Friday, the GROWop will be making pizzas topped with veggies straight from their garden for art-goers and boutique shoppers alike. No set price on the mini-garden gluten bites -- but we hear a kind donation will be warmly accepted.
What is a cob oven exactly? Find out after the JUMP.
In this case, the word "cob" has nothing to do with the delectable corn on the cob (just around the corner from being in season) we love to slather with butter and salt. The word "cob," it turns out, has multiple meanings. One of which is a rounded mass, lump or heap. Another of which is a mixture of unburnt clay and straw. Both of which currently describe the GROWop cob oven, until they fire it up for pizzas, that is.
If you won't be downtown this Third Friday, no big deal. They'll be firing up the oven for special events from here on out. Or if you're inspired to DIY it, click here to find out how.
