pizza no. 7 : sun dried tomato pesto.
occasion : it's Saturday!
crust : our whole wheat usual + a bit extra yeast!
sauce : we adapted a recipe from Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. It's below :
- 1/2 C sun dried tomatoes packed in olive oil
- glove of fresh garlic
- handful of fresh basil (about 12 leaves)
- 1/4 C Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 C almonds
- salt & pepper to taste
- grind all that up in your food processor. It will not be liquid-y but it will be spreadable. Taste it! Does it need more salt? Do you want to just eat it right now? Excellent! It's ready.
cheese : fresh mozzarella.
toppings : grilled chicken, sliced onion & kalamata olives.
thoughts : this pizza was awesome. We're obsessed with that sauce recipe. I told Paul you could just set out a bowl of it with crackers at a party. Paul said, "like bruschetta?" and I said, "no, like a dip." It's fantastic! Just keep an eye on your oven... ours overcooked and burned a bit, but was still amazing.
