Fennel, Goat Cheese and Pesto Puff Pastry Pizza

I love, love, love my new Merrell Salada boots! These hiking boots are completely comfortable! To be fair, the longest hike I have done in them is a fifteen miler to this point (and in deep snow at that) but they made my feet happy the whole time.
I wore them las029t week hiking up San Gorgonio in the snow and wow, what a difference from my last boots! My last Merrell’s hurt me all the way from Whitney Portal Base camp to Trail Crest and back! That was a nearly twenty mile hike in pain the whole way! This years boot is way better!
Can’t wait to hike Mt Whitney in these babies in July!
After I do a five, ten or fifteen miler hike this puff pastry pizza tastes like an amazing cheesy and fennel covered reward!
It’s super quick to throw together after a long day on the mountain too!
