December 11, 2013

 

 

Lemon kale hummus, shaved parmesan cheese, Thai eggplant stir fry (with cherry tomatoes, onion, basil, garlic, crushed red pepper, soy sauce, brown sugar), lemon juice

Recipe

 

Ingredients:
1 ball of dough
flour for dusting

semolina flour for pizza stone
olive oil
salt & pepper
lemon kale hummus (ours is from Lancaster Hummus)
5-6 Thai eggplants, cut into bite size cubes (you can find these at most Asian grocery stores)
a handful of colorful cherry tomatoes (about 15 or so)
2 tablespoons canola oil
pinch of crushed red pepper
1 white onion, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons white vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
a handful of fresh basil (about 20 leaves), shredded
lemon juice
shaved parmesan cheese

 

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 550° F. Heat the canola oil in a wok or a deep skillet over high heat. Add the crushed red pepper and let sizzle for about 10-15 seconds. Add the eggplant and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes.

 

Next, add the onion, cherry tomatoes and garlic and cook for another 3 minutes. Add the vinegar, soy sauce and brown sugar and toss for another minute or two. Remove the pan from the heat. When you’re about ready to put the pizza in the oven, stir in the basil.

 

Meanwhile, you can begin to prepare your dough, using the instructions on the right. When it has pre-baked for a minute, take it out and brush it lightly with olive oil. Follow with a light coating of the hummus, and about half of the shaved parmesan.

 

Spoon out a layer of the stir fry next, making sure to place the tomatoes evenly (and, if you’re worried about aesthetics like I am, make sure the colors are evenly distributed, too). Then add the rest of the parmesan around the tomatoes, and throw it back in the oven.

 

Bake until the cheese has melted over the stir fry and the crust is golden brown. Then take it out and serve!

HOW TO PREPARE DOUGH

#1 

Start stretching it from the center, then move it around in a circle so that gravity stretches it and creates a natural crust. It helps to put some olive oil on your hands first.

 

#2

Place the dough on your floured surface & push it out with your fingertips until it's the size of your pizza stone. You can fold over the edges to create an extra fluffy crust.

 

#3

When the oven is hot (preheat it with the stone inside), sprinkle some semolina flour on the pizza stone and place your dough on it.

#4

Bake it for about a minute, or until it starts to bubble, then take it out. This last step isn't 100% necessary, but I feel like it adds a little extra crispiness to the crust.
