As I write this, I am freshly back from the Canadian Pizza Show, and I want to say that it was great to meet so many of you! I really enjoyed hosting the Seasonal Pizza Challenge, and I am thrilled that my talk about vegan and vegetarian pizzas became an open discussion with everyone in attendance!

Did you know that women aged 19 to 49 require more than twice as much iron in their daily diet as men? And while you may already be eating foods with iron, depending on what you’re eating with them, your body may not be absorbing much of it. There are two kinds of iron: heme iron and non-heme iron. Heme iron, found in meat, fish, and poultry, is well absorbed by the body. Non-heme iron, found in beans, lentils, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and eggs, is not as well absorbed by the body.

Approximately one in every 133 Canadians has celiac disease or some form of gluten intolerance and less than 10 per cent of these people have been officially diagnosed.

In my last column, I wrote about jazzing up the vegetable toppings on your menu and in this column I want to expand on that idea. Canadians are going through another big food and tastes transformation, and many are no longer satisfied with the usual pepperoni or ham and pineapple pizza offerings.

This month I’m going to talk about something I have a lot of experience with: using beer in a pizza dough recipe. Back in 2005, this magazine held the first competition for Chef of the Year, which was inspired by a Food Network competition show. There were 40 common ingredients and you were allowed to choose five secret ingredients to make three recipes from scratch.
