Pizza – in a state of emergency

If you ever feel like you have NO idea what to cook for dinner – always remember, if you have a freezer and a couple ingredients, you have a pizza. Last night I had NO idea what to make for dinner. I had rushed home to feed and walk the dogs, was charged by a moose, did my 30 minute HIIT workout just in time for my man to arrive home from a day on the ski hill. I had 20 minutes to get something going and my kitchen was especially empty.

Cue my pizza-itis.

Pizza is, in my humble opinion, one of the easiest, most robust culinary creations out there. You have an entire meal in one spot. How perfect is that? While our ideas of the perfect pizza may be very different, rest assured that a few great ingredients prepared well, can really tie together what would otherwise seem like a hodgepodge mess.

Ingredients: 

Gluten free rice tortillas – keep these frozen for emergency use later

Peanut satay sauce

1 sweet potato shredded

2 carrots shredded

1 bell pepper sliced

1 cup frozen pineapple diced

2 cups torn kale

2 tbsp fresh chopped chive or green onion

1/4 cup nutritional yeast – to add some cheesiness

Garlic salt

Peppercorns – fresh, crushed for taste

 

Method: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place tortillas on a baking sheet, spread peanut satay sauce on as you would with any regular pizza sauce – I suggest more saucy, but that’s my preference.

In a hot skillet lightly oiled, cook up your yam and pineapple fir about 5 minutes on medium heat to remove the starch from the yam.

Top your pizza with all ingredients with the exception of the green onion. Place in oven and cook for at least 20 minutes or until you can see the edges of your tortillas getting browned. At around 20-25 minutes add your green onion & nutritional yeast and allow to cook for a couple more minutes.

Voila! You can use this recipe for appies, or for your main course.

In a perfect world, while that’s in the oven you could splash some water on your face, turn on some sweet tunes and pour a glass of scotch to enjoy!
