Well when I *USED* to cook…back in the day… Sundays became Pizza Day, which is a bit weird I know. But my husband really doesn’t like the “classic” Sunday dinners. I love making pizza for dinner guests too. Before I got sick I tried three new recipes and TWO of them turned out. The one that didn’t turn out was one with a smashed bean base for the sauce. It didn’t work. But these two were delish. I definitely will make them again.
Onion Marmalade, Grilled Pineapple & Pancetta Pizza
1 ball of dough (still haven’t perfected the dough, so I buy it)
6 oz of pancetta, diced and crisped up from cooking in a pan with a bit of oil (have the deli cut it thick like…2 slices of bologna thick)
1 ripe yummy pineapple, cut into rings
3 T. of sugar
8 oz of Camembert cheese, sliced
3/4 cup of Mozzarella
Onion Marmalade: 2 T Olive Oil, 2 T. Butter, 3 large yellow onions (sliced into thin rings), 1 TEASPOON (I put a Tablespoon and it was so salty) of Kosher Salt. Heat the oil and butter and then add onions and salt. Cover the pot and let it cook for 20 minutes. Stir once in a while. Then remove the cover and cook for 20 more minutes until they are a deep golden color and YUMMY!
1. Brush your pineapple with a bit of oil, sprinkle with sugar and either grill it or broil it in the oven until done. Then cut into chunks and set aside.
2. Brush your scallions with oil and either grill or broil until soft and cut with scissors into strips. Set aside.
3. Roll out your dough. On the tray that you will be cooking your pizza dough, spread around some cornmeal and place the dough on top.
4. Spread the “sauce” (the onion marmalade) on the top of the pizza and top with the two cheeses. Then put on the pineapple, pancetta and scallions.
5. Cook for 9-12 minutes at 400 degrees.
Holy Moly, you guys, this one is SO good. It’s one of the best pizzas I have had.
Sweet & Hot Pepper & Sausage Pizza
1/2 lb of Italian SWEET Sausage, cooked
1/2 lb of Italian HOT Sausage, cooked
1 ball of pizza dough
1 cup of your favorite red sauce, make it GARLICKY though!
1/3 cup of Sweet Peppers (find them in the condiments aisle in oil)
1/3 cup of Hot Peppers (find them in the same place. You’ll have leftover and you can make sure yummy steak bombs)
1 cup of Monteray Jack
1 cup of Mozzarella
Salt & Pepper
1. Roll out the dough. On the pan you will be using, spread around some cornmeal and put the dough on top.
2. Spread out your favorite sauce. I like to put some cheese on top of that, then the toppings (peppers sliced, sausage) then some more cheese, then a bit of the toppings again.
3. Top with some olive oil, salt and pepper.
4. Cook at 400 for 9-12 minutes.
