OFFSTAGE: Pizza, Bread & Ham From Underwood, Lambert & Evans

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Who doesn’t like a huge slice of deep-dish cheesy pizza? Carrie Underwood. Well, she probably does, but instead of that, she makes her own pizza her own way — with a tortilla for a crust, reduced-fat cheese, spinach, olives, onions and bell peppers. Self magazine has the recipe for the no-guilt veggie pizza. And you can also see Miranda Lambert’s raspberry-lemon-yogurt bread. “This bread is perfect for taking on the road. It’s great as a breakfast treat, midday snack or dessert,” Lambert says. But the one I can’t wait to try is Sara Evans’ family ham recipe. All you need is a ham, plus beer, honey, brown sugar and cloves. And Evans promises, “It’s so easy and the most delicious thing you’ll ever taste!” She also told the magazine her go-to after-show food is a banana. It’s no honey-beer ham, but I suppose that would be tough to make on a bus.
