It’s Friday night pizza time again.
This week the Chef whipped up a surprising treat! Pizza with a corn bread crust!
I was delighted and what a wonderful surprise this was. Very flavourful and a great texture and no waiting for the dough to rise!
So you can use your favorite corn bread recipe or try this:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup of corn meal
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup of milk ( what ever kind)
- 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion ( green onions would work too)
- 1/2 of a finely chopped jalapeno pepper ( or one tsp crushed chili flakes)
- 1 cup fresh or canned corn nibblits
- 1/2 cup grated smoked cheddar cheese
Mix these all up thoroughly until you get a nice thick goopy batter. Then on a baking sheet lined with parchment ( to make things easy) turn out the batter. Spread it evenly to the corners and then bake at 350 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes till it starts looking a little done.
Let cool till it is nice and firmed up and then top with your favorite toppings. On this evening we had:
- Roasted veg
- green olives
- pine nuts
- Boursin cheese
But you can top with whatever you have around. I wish we had have had the corn bread crust when we had the pulled pork pizza! Note to self!
Eat as is or add some little sides to round it off. The Chef always likes a little meat with HIS vegetarian meals!
