This is a creation of mine that was inspired by a chicken crescent square recipe. I took the ingredients from some of my baked spinach casseroles, tweeked them, and came up with this impressive looking vegetable. Great for a fancy dinner party or a romantic dinner.
My good friend Donna brought this to our Thanksgiving feast this year 2006' and it was the hit of the table. Not only is it low calorie but tastefully delicious. Made a great presentation, Thanks for sharing Donna. NOTE: The system would not allow me to put in the exact amount of the pkt of Dressing.... So when making this use only 1/2 pkt
I found this in quick and easy style cookbook a long time ago. It literally takes only 15 minutes from start to finish to make! I made changes that my family likes and this is what I ended up with. My family really likes to make these as well and eat them. The kids have tons of fun making their own.
If you are trying to get more veggies into your diet then try this. It is loaded with broccoli, asparagus, carrots, tomatoes, and mushrooms and loaded with fresh mozzarella cheese. You can use a pre-made pizza shell of make your own. There are many great recipes for pizza crust already posted on Zaar. The cooking time assumes that a pre-made crust is being used.
My family enjoys good take-out pizza but would gladly pass it up in favor of this, their favorite pizza! You may choose to make either an extra-large thick-crust pizza or two 13" thin and crispy pizzas using this recipe - I'm sharing my methods for making both styles of pizza here. Thanks to Chef Letty Flatt, long-time executive pastry chef for Deer Valley Resorts of Park City, Utah, for the pizza crust ingredients list which I've adjusted only minimally. Allow up to one hour extra time for the dough to rise.
Under orders from the teenagers in the house, I created recipes for their favourite take out breadsticks and dipping sauce. The bread sticks are very easy to make and the recipe has been posted separately as Bread Sticks - Pizza Hut Style
This comes from the Time Life series of international cookbooks and has been a family favourite in our house for at least 10 years. It's best to set aside a morning to make these and haul someone in the kitchen to help put them together. Although they are not difficult to make, it does go faster if you set up an "assembly line". The seasoning given here is what I would consider a minimum but you may want to add more to your taste, especially when it comes to the hot pepper. You could also do half potatoes and half carrots for the filling if you like. The amount this recipe makes is also a guess based on our samosas, which are bigger than bite sized but not as big as you get in some Indian shops. If you don't have a deep fryer, you could use a wok instead. If you are really set on doing a healthier version, you could brush these with oil and bake in an oven until browned on both sides, however the texture of the dough is not as good as if you fry them. If you choose the baking option, you may also have to brush them with oil a few times and flip at least once to get them reasonably browned all over. Frying is really the preferred method.
My DH loves those frozen Tony's Pizza Rolls....I'll eat them too, but....what exactly is in them?? We probably don't want to even know! These are MUCH better and at least we know what we're eating!! Buy extra sauce for dipping if you'd like, but they really don't need it. Also, add/omit any ingredients you like or don't like. Make them to your own taste of course. This is what we like in them.
An easy way to prepare pizza crusts and freeze for later. Of course, you could use them immediately! I like this recipe b/c as a "single babe"... I'm mostly cooking for one these days and like being able to pull an individual-size pizza crust out of the freezer for a quick dinner... or when I have unexpected company!
This pizza sauce recipe was given to me as a wedding present, written on the inside cover of a pizza cookbook. It is thick, saucy, spicy and delicious. I'll never use anything else on my homemade pizzas. I like to double or triple it and put it in Ziploc bags in my freezer.
I love the dipping oil served at my two favorite Italian restaurants. Both restaurants vary slightly in ingredients. Here is my version that brings the best of both worlds. Serve with warm bread fresh out of the oven and enjoy!
