How to plant a Pizza Garden

Next Image Title

Artist Name

I created an illustration of a pizza garden trimming it in bricks and sectioning it so each slice represents a vegetable that would go into a pizza. Great family project. This illustration was part on an article about how to plant a pizza garden.
