After a busy cooking weekend between the incredible `aha`aina, the Royal Foody Joustand this week's upcoming Barefoot Bloggers post, I am just a little "reciped out" so I thought I would post about some quick and easy pizza I made last week. Using leftover Chipatis and Dukka from Blog Party #38 Stephanie's Birthday Bash (you can find the recipes and info on them here) and a few ingredients from my fridge, I made exotic and yummy pizzas with a Middle Eastern Flavor.
Middle Eastern Pizzas
Chipatis (or any type of flatbread--you can find some exampleshere) good olive oil seasoned ground meat (I used ground lamb with cumin & curry) roasted garlic sauteed mushrooms (I used the oyster mushrooms from my CSA box) feta cheese dukka (optional) fresh mint leaves, chopped (for garnish) -----
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spread a thin layer of olive oil on Chipati and top with meat, garlic, feta and dukka (if using). Bake in oven about 8-10 minutes until heated through and cheese is soft. Garnish with chopped fresh mint and enjoy.
Results: I really loved the combo of flavors on the crisp chipatis and the dukka, with its combination of toasted nuts and spices, added a nice crunch. A simple weeknight dinner served with a salad and it definitely inspired me to try some different flatbread & topping combinations.
