Zucchini Pizza, Take Two


After I brought out my Lemon Zucchini Chevre Pizza - and after the boys each ate a slice - Riley, very politely, asked if I had any more dough and could I make a version without the chevre. I knew it wasn't a mini-boy favorite when I made it, but went with it anyway.

So, I asked what kind of cheese he would like me to use and he walked over to the fridge: Can you use this shaved parmesan and romano instead? I like everything else.

"Can you skip the black pepper, too?" piped up the littlest Mann.

Fine. More leftover chevre for my lunch and Daddy's lunch tomorrow. Here's take two of the zucchini pizza tonight. It's a good thing this dough is fast.

Quick and Easy Pizza Dough
1 T active dry yeast
1 T organic granulated sugar
1 C warm water
3 C white whole wheat flour
1/2 C ground almonds
2 T olive oil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let bloom until creamy, about 10 minutes. Stir in flour, ground almonds, and oil. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Press dough - with floured fingers - onto baking stone. 

Toppings
1 organic Meyer lemon
4 oz goat cheese, at room temperature
3 handfuls of shaved parmesan and romano cheese
handful of fresh cilantro, thinly sliced
freshly ground sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
drizzle of olive oil
2 yellow zucchini, thinly sliced

Juice and zest lemon. Spread 2 handfuls of the cheese and cilantro over the pizza dough. Layer the zucchini and sprinkle with more cheese and a generous amount of freshly sea salt. Bake in preheated oven for 22 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving. Top with more cheese, if you have any, drizzle with a bit more olive oil, the lemon juice, and the zest.

The boys were thrilled!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
