What it is about pizza?!? Frozen, gourmet, fast food, homemade; you name it we love it. Maybe not so much the fast food version, but there was a point in my life when yes even I the poster child of health, use to eat pizza on a daily basis.
Pizza buns & frozen pizza were my two FAVE food groups.
But the one pizza that comes to mind that left a lasting impression is, the individual deep dish frozen cheese pizza. Only this thing was like a booby trap.
I remember as a kid getting all excited, taking the individual disk out of its cellophane wrapper and placing it into the toaster oven, then it would just be 45 minutes until it was done, the sweet sound of the “DING” I knew that it was pizza party time.
But let’s all take a step back and think about this logically for a second… We have a deep-dish pizza, and if I’m being completely honest, this pizza was pretty much JUST crust. So we have a shell that contains tomato sauce with a thin layer of cheese on top, but what happens to tomato sauce when you cook it for 45 minutes??? I’ll tell you what, it turns into flippin’ lava, and the words just let it cool for a minute when it comes to pizza and a child… in one ear and out the other.
My first bite and that tomato sauce was hotter than magma and it would come exploding out from under the cheese, but rather then spitting it out to save yourself you do that thing where you get really breathy trying to cool down, super attractive, I like to do that move on first dates…
Thankfully my pallet has matured and the freezer section of the grocery store has become a thing of the past.
Roasted Vegetable Pizza with Hummus
I love this recipe because it’s a spin on a previous post of mine…
I think the only thing I added to the veggie mix was some eggplant
So once you have all your veg and kofta ready to go, throw some GF brown rice wraps into the oven (I toss them in frozen) and they don’t take long to brown up, about 2-3 minutes, but watch them carefully as they can go from a pizza shell to burnt ass very quickly.
Then spread a thick layer of hummus, top with kofta, some veg, salt and pepper to taste, and dinner is served.
A non traditional pizza fit for a kofta queen.
