pizza: Green Peace
"This pizza just makes me want to go lie down in a field of tall grass." - Everyone who's ever had a slice
Note: 1 pizza is enough for 1 person
- a few tbsp of canned crushed tomatoes
- some basil pesto
- some crushed garlic
- baby spinach
- grated pecorino cheese
- green bell pepper (thinly sliced)
- yellow onion (thinly sliced)
- kalamata olives (halved)
- zucchini (thinly sliced)
- broad beans (pre-cooked)
- crushed red pepper
Pre-heat oven to 400 F/200 C.
While oven is heating, chop all veggies.
Pre-toast tortilla in the oven so it's crispayy. You basically want to brown it like one big, giant tortilla chip.
Add a couple dollops of tomato sauce, a dollop of pesto and a dollop of crushed garlic to the tortilla. Mix and spread around so it gets all the way to the edges.
Tip: You want to cover the full tortilla, but don't pile on too much sauce or it'll be soggy - yuck!
Add a bed of spinach.
Add the cheese. (We all love cheese, but again, not too much.)
Scatter the rest of the toppings.
Tip: Since there are so many toppings, you don't need too much of each one. For example, I would only put 3 kalamata olives on (making for 6 olive halves). Too many toppings and you risk a heavy, soggy pizza - yuck!
Finish off with crushed red pepper (black pepper too if you like).
Tip: I wouldn't add salt as the pecorino cheese is already salty.
Bake at 400 F/200 C for 8-10 min.
Cut into 6 pieces (or 8 if you're really hungry).
Grab a slice, high five the person next to you, and enjoy that shit. 😋
pecorino cheese > parmesan cheese
green bell pepper > any other kind of bell pepper
zucchini > any other kind of squash
broad beans > edamame

Don't make that mistake. You'll just end up blaming the poor tortilla.
