My plate, a simple series where I show you what was on my plate, or maybe in the pan right before it goes on my plate.
Earlier this week, Mr Chiots had to travel, so I needed a quick meal to whip up the night before that would be good for him to eat cold the next day. What’s better cold than pizza? I didn’t have time to make dough for the crust, so I used a sourdough caibatta that I had in the freezer. I cut the bread in half, smeared the cut sides with roasted tomato passata and loaded it up with vegetables: homemade olives, caramelized homegrown onions, sun dried homegrown tomatoes and completed it with a good measure of local raw milk cheese.
Into the oven it went for a few minutes to melt the cheese to hold everything together. I sent half of it with him and kept the other half for my own dinner. He enjoyed his cold while on the road, while I warmed mine in the oven for a few minutes. Pizza can be a healthy meal if you use sourdough crust and load it up with lots of healthy toppings. It’s also a great traveling food because it’s almost just as good cold as it is warmed up.
What’s your favorite pizza topping?
