Pizza night is something of a religious ritual in our house. It happens about once a fortnight on a Saturday or Sunday evening. We almost always make 4 pizzas, since whatever isn’t eaten on the night gets eaten after the next day or two. I can happily spend the better part of a day preparing the toppings.
Last night I made up a couple of new concoctions which went down pretty well.
The pizza based was brushed with garlic oil, then grated gruyere and grana padano cheese were added. Fresh sardine fillets placed skin-side up around the pizza. I then added semi-dried cherry tomatoes -these area great alternative to using a tomato paste. After the pizza came ouyt of the oven I added capers, slices of radicchio, parsley and slices of lemon. Just excellent!
Moroccan Chicken Pizza
This was a bit of a twist on one that I’ve made a few times. Mozzarella, garlic confit, roast chicken, roast sweet potato, roast beetroot, rosemary. Ricotta, toasted pine nuts and pomegranate syrup were added after it was cooked. Very nice. Goats cheese would have worked fine, and perhaps a bit of diced chilli.
I have a number of pizza recipes and ideas here.
