Food Revolution Easy-Peasy Pizza Pie

July 21st, 2010 1 Comment Tags: ,

I’ve got a super easy and fast pizza recipe I use from time to time. My good friend Joan loves it, while hubby boy (who’s a bit spoiled) loves my other pizza posted on May 14. I use a different combo of veggies every time I whip this up using what’s sitting idle in my refrigerator.

Ingredients

Whole grain pizza shell or flat bread (store bought)

3-4 crushed garlic cloves

1 peeled, sliced white onion

1 bunch of green onions with stems, cleaned and chopped

1-2 cleaned and sliced peppers (any combo of red, orange or yellow)

5-8 washed and sliced mushrooms

3-4 chopped sundried tomato pieces

4-5 cherry tomatoes washed and sliced in half

Top with shredded cheeses combination to your liking (asiago, mozzarella, goat’s, parmesan, romano)

Few slices of salami or prosciutto (optional)

Instructions

Preheat the oven according to the package directions for the pizza shell – I’m guessing to 425F degrees. Now, in a sautéing pan add some olive oil at the bottom and heat to medium low. Add the garlic and prepared onions and cook to soften. Then add the peppers and mushrooms and allow them to cook through until soft then add the sundried and plum tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper to your liking and allow to simmer a few more minutes.

Prepare the pizza pan with canola oil on the surface or pan spray to avoid sticking. Put the pizza shell on the pan then pile on the sautéed mixture you just prepared. Top with cheeses and pop in the oven for the time the instructions suggest (my guess is 10-20 minutes). Check on how it’s doing in 10 minutes though. Serve piping hot with a side salad (see post on June 23).

Commentary

Last year when the concept of this blog was taking shape in my mind I was on a vacation in Vermont. We were at a place with a kitchenette where we’d alternate eating in and out from day to day. This is one recipe I choose to prepare while away. The funny thing was our pad wasn’t equipped with a pizza tin/cookie sheet. So, I asked the staff to please bring me one. This lovely student employee showed up with a frying pan!! Now I’ve read a lot about the lost art of cooking, but that was simply ridiculous. This is why I post recipes and simple cooking ideas, because if I can do it, anybody can.

On a different note some of these packaged pizza shells have a package of tomato sauce included. I think they’re made for mangé cakes and quite franky, I’m not one, so I don’t use it!! If you want some meat with your pizza add a few thin slices of salami or prosciutto on top before popping it in the oven. A glass of rich red cabernet goes swimmingly with this as well.

Cheers bella!!
