Low Carb Pizza

It’s true. Since the “Repeat Offender” post I reduced the weight of the base to 400g.
For this diameter and style of pizza ( Deep Pan Pesda) this seems to be the optimum weight.

Fried a small onion, added the sauce + a bit of Tabasco + a bit of of tomato puree. Fried a more substantial bit of onion, added chunky mushrooms then then chicken. When everything was hot and browned added a little cream and parmesan. Layered the sauce, the chicken, slices of red pepper, mozzarella.

We are always being told that the essence of good pizza is restraint – a smear of tomato sauce, a scattering of basil leaves, a few pieces of mozzarella. That’s one way of doing it. But with a different approach you can turn out a fabulous deeper concoction.

I shall probably be visited by Sicilians tonight.
