Kimchi and Bulgogi Pizza

Standard

I know what you’re thinking…. GROSS. ¬†It’s actually a very good pizza! I promise…

Since we’ve moved into the new house we haven’t made as as many pies as we used to. I guess we are still getting used to the space ūüôā This one was AWESOME!

Kimchi Pie

Prep: 1 hr

Cook Time: 20-25 min

Serves: 2-3

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Kimchi (drained of liquid, pres with paper towel).
  • 1/3 lb Sirloin sliced thinly (helps to freeze slightly before slicing).
  • 1 Cup ¬†Rough cilantro
  • 1/2 Cup Green onion
  • 10 oz Mozzarella cheese, (I use slices of fresh mozz).
  • 1/2 Cup Cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 Cup Ponzu sauce
  • 1 TBS Fish sauce
  • 1/4 C. Sirracha

Crust/Dough

  • 1 (1/4 ounce) Package active dry yeast
  • 1 C. Warm water (may need more)
  • 1 TBS. Sea salt
  • 2 tsp Sesame oil
  • 2 1/2-3 1/2 cups Bread flour

Instructions For Dough:

  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed bowl.
  2. Add sea salt, olive oil, and 2 1/2 cup flour.
  3. Attach bowl and dough hook, turn to speed 2 and mix 1 minute.
  4. Continuing on speed 2, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until dough clings to dough hook and cleans sides of bowl. Knead on speed 2 for 5 minutes. If making 2 pies split dough into 2 balls. Knead until the edges of bowl are clean, this may take more flour or more water.
  5. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top.
  6. Cover, let rise in warmest place in house away from draft until doubled in bulk (about 1 hour).
  7. Punch dough down each ball.
  8. Roll out dough as you like and place on your cooking surface. (stone, tin, pan, etc.)
  9. Par Bake for 5 min if crispy crust is desired…

Pizza Instructions:

  1. Marinate sirloin in fish sauce and ponzu for 1 hr. Then cook in skillet until browned and done.
  2. Once dough is ready. (Par baking is optimal), spread a very thin layer of Sirracha on pie, then add mozzarella, cooked sirloin, then cheddar cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 10-15 min.
  3. Add drained kimchi, cilantro, and green onion to top of pie.
  4. Enjoy!

Pizzettes with Fried Brussel Sprout Leaves Tossed with Crispy Bacon and Golden Raisins

Standard

Mini pizzettes for everyone! These are cute and delicious little pizzas that are sure to please any party guests. I have been on a pizza kick for my just about my whole life… I LOVE pizza! Ever since I learned to make my own dough- we no longer eat “delivery” pizza because it’s ALWAYS a disappointment for many reasons, it’s $$ for what it is, it makes you feel like crap, and it’s just simply not. that. good. We still enjoy going to local pizza places like Salvations and Rounders but that requires driving all the way into town which is not close.

Next time you need an appetizer plan for guest, try these babies out! You will not regret it!

Sausage and Porcini Pizza with a Homemade Pesto

Standard

Here’s the pizza I promised and let me tell ya… it was an amazing pizza! Everything was made from scratch (minus the cheese, but I’m working on changing that). I can’t tell you how much better homemade crust, sausage, and pesto is!!! If you haven’t made any of these by hand it’s time to start and here’s why:

Store bought pizza crust: Like Boboli for example are about $3-5 and contains all of these ingredients some of which are GMO:¬†Unbleached enriched wheat flour [flour, malted barley flour, reduced iron, niacin, thiamin mononitrate (vitamin b1), riboflavin (vitamin b2), folic acid], water, palm oil, yeast, salt, milk casein, sugar, mozzarella cheese (milk, cheese cultures, salt and enzymes), preservatives (calcium propionate, sorbic acid ), fumaric acid, modified food starch, sodium phosphate, whey, monoglycerides, lactic acid, natural flavor, garlic, artificial color. ¬†Making your own consists of much less: Flour, yeast, water, oil, and salt… all for approximately 60 cents!

Store Bought Pesto 4oz: For about $4-7 Contains: Basil, Soybean Oil, Garlic, Romano Cheese (Milk, Cheese Cultures, Salt, Enzymes), Olive Oil, Spice, Salt, Lactic Acid, Torula Yeast, Citric Acid, Natural Flavors (Soy). Contains Soybeans, Milk. Making 8oz of your own: Basil, Olive Oil (good stuff), Pine nuts, Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese, Garlic, Salt and Pepper for about $5-6

Store Bought Sausage 1lb:¬†For about $4-6 Contains:¬†Pork (high fat content), Water, Salt, Corn Syrup, Monosodium Glutamate (AKA MSG), Dextrose, Spices, Natural Flavors, BHT, BHA, Citric Acid. Making your own: Pork, Turkey, Identifiable spices that I’m proud to disclose, Shallots, Garlic, Green Onion for about $ 2.50

Yes it’s work, it is much harder than picking up the phone and calling Domino’s! In the end- not only is better for your wallet and your body but it’s also fun to create meals you can feel good about eating that won’t come back to haunt you the next day… or even next couple of days for that matter, you know what I’m talking about…

Prep: 1 hr

Cook Time: 20-25 min

Makes: 8 Slices or serves 2-3

Ingredients:

Toppings

  • Sausage balls

  • 1 tsp. Salt
Mix well and roll into marble sized balls. Cook in large skillet until cook through. Reserve for pizza

  • 2/3 C. Olive oil
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • 1/4 C. Pine Nuts
  • 1/2 C.- 3/4 C. Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese
  • Salt and pepper
Mix all ingredient in processor, season with salt and pepper to taste.

Crust/Dough

  • 1 (1/4 ounce) Package active dry yeast
  • 1 C. Warm water
  • 1 TBS. Sea salt
  • 2 tsp Olive oil
  • 2 1/2-3 1/2 cups Bread flour

Instructions:

  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed bowl.
  2. Add sea salt, olive oil, and 2 1/2 cup flour.
  3. Attach bowl and dough hook, turn to speed 2 and mix 1 minute.
  4. Continuing on speed 2, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until dough clings to dough hook and cleans sides of bowl. Knead on speed 2 for 5 minutes. If making 2 pies split dough into 2 balls.
  5. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top.

  7. Punch dough down each ball.
  8. Roll out dough as you like and place on your cooking surface. (stone, tin, pan, etc.)
    I pre bake my crust for about 5 min on the stone to firm it up… this ensures that the meatballs don’t roll off when you slide it in the oven.
    To Top: Spread pesto evenly, then place mozzarella on top, then porcini’s and meat balls, Finally sprinkle with Parmigiano reggiano.
    Bake for 20-25 min until bubbly and golden  :)
    Enjoy and Cheers!
