How to Make Pizza Without Dough

How to Make Pizza Without Dough
I was getting kind of sick of ordering delivery pizza (this happens at least 2-3 times a month). It was time to put a spin on gourmet pizza, but I just didn't know what it would be. Without pizza dough or an oven that is capable of creating the perfect pizza crust (I don't have an oven that can go up to a 1000 degrees), I decided I would use potatoes instead. This recipe is elegant enough to serve at a dinner party, but easy enough that you can cook it within 5-15 minutes. For 4 small, personal sized pizzas 4" in diameter, you will need: 2 large potatoes peeled and cleaned4 teaspoons salt (to flavor the potatoes) I'm doing four different flavor combinations here, and the measurements for each combination will top 4 small pizzas or 1 large pizza. Cheese & pepperoni pizza: 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese1/4 cup marinara sauce10 slices of pepperoni (or as much as you like)7-8 leaves of fresh basil Mushroom swiss and ham pizza: Shrimp scampi pizza: Bleu cheese & arugula pizza: Thanks for reading.

Sesame Salmon Burgers with Dill Yogurt Sauce I’m eagerly anticipating the day when I can describe completing my to do list as “getting my affairs in order.” You see, I’m reserving that kind of self-importance for the days when my “affairs” consist of more than binge watching Mad Men , sitting atop my counter while I lick a bowl of brownie batter (before it’s empty, mind you), and changing from one pair of pajamas to the next. It should be noted that the second pair of pajamas were quite the trade up.

Brazilian Lemonade This is my most favorite drink. Ever. Maybe I’d feel differently if I drank (as in alcohol), but there is nothing I love more than a warm, breezy afternoon and a pitcher of Brazilian lemonade. I didn’t try it for a long, long time because I was very put off by putting sweetened condensed milk in with citrus fruit. It seemed very wrong. And then I had some at Tucano’s and my life has not been the same since. The Hazel Bloom: Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Skewers, aka: "Love" I knew I was in deep when my guy was having a really bad day, and I found myself Googling bacon-wrapped meat recipes so I could cook him a yummy dinner to help cheer him up. See, I'm a vegetarian, and while, yes, I'm fine with people eating meat in front of me at restaurants, and yes, I can kiss my guy right after he's noshed a slice of pepperoni pizza, this whole cooking meat thing had been something I avoided. Passionately. But finding Mr. Right changes things, I guess.

Have You Ever Heard of Swirl Pizza? [Photographs: Hawk Krall] Alex's Pizzeria 400 Leverington Avenue Philadelphia, PA 19128-3312 (map); 215-483-6126 Pizza style: Thin-crust SwirlOven type: Gas The skinny: Super sweet sauce swirled on top of the cheese at this tiny neighborhood take-out spotPrice: $8.52 for a small, $9.50 for large. Swirl Pizza is a style found along the Schuylkill river towns just northwest of Philadelphia. This pizza is built upon a crust much thinner than your average Philly slice, and the sauce is applied on top of the cheese in a decorative spiral pattern. I found it at Alex's Pizzeria in Roxborough.

The Baker's Daughter: Polka dot cheesecake I saw someone wearing the greatest polka dot rain coat today and it inspired me to make this cheesecake. It needs to be refrigerated overnight so make sure you make it the day before you want to serve it. I find that popping it into the freezer for about 1/2 hour makes it a lot easier to cut. Using a knife dipped in hot water between cuts also helps to make clean edges. If you want to make this into a traditional cheesecake you will need an 8 inch spring form pan. Crust

Stuffed Eggplant Recipe Over the past weekend, while I was catching up on my feeds, my heart skipped a beat when I saw a beautiful photo of stuffed eggplants on La Tartine Gourmande. The stunning visual was enough to convince me to make them. On my weekend grocery trip, I made sure to buy a firm and plump eggplant to make these stuffed shells of goodness. Grandma’s tip: run your finger over the eggplant and look closely – there shouldn’t be any tiny holes on it or you’ll have company when you cut it open.

Watermelonade Recipe at Epicurious photo by Roland Bello yield Makes 1 gallon (serves 16) active time 30 min total time 30 min Green Goddess Dressing I made you a bowl of greens. Eat this while I eat some french fries and cake balls. A few weeks ago I made a SANDWICH inspired by Green Goddess Dressing. What I didn’t tell you about that sandwich was that it was just an excuse to buy soft, white, sandwich bread so I could make myself late night cinnamon-sugar toast. Uh-huh.

The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY! I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade.
