Homemade Pizza

Chicken and Kimchi Pizza

Chicken and Kimchi Pizza

Chicken and Kimchi Pizza

Simple, delicious, flavorful… Oh, so orgasmic pizza! Can you really ask for more? Let us call this Korean Fusion Pizza… Ye! Does everyone agree?

It takes you less than 30 minutes to do this, no dough necessary. Although you can make your dough or use store-bought. I used tortillas. Yup! It is that simple.

All I did is pan-fried chicken strips and that was really the hardest part. Everything else is like adding, preheating and baking until nicely golden and mouthwatering.

Chicken and Kimchi Pizza

Cheese, kimchi, and chicken go so well together and I know you will not be disappointed by the taste or the flavor of this dish.

Now, ingredients… I am aware that not all of you can get hold of gochujang, in translation, Korean red chili paste.

I assume that most of you do have international or Asian markets, where Korean condiments or products are sold. As for kimchi, yes, you can use store-bought or homemade.

Chicken and Kimchi Pizza

I always have an extra jar or container in the fridge for a quick stew or to make delicious Korean dishes with it… I mean, I LOVE kimchi so very much!

As for toppings, well, I love mushrooms, and sweet peppers in a combination of chicken, kimchi, and cheese, as well as slightly spicy gochujang and pizza sauce.

With that being said, you can really use whatever you prefer, like or have around The egg is optional, of course, but it is so delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of chicken strips seasoned/cooked
  • 2 to rtillas medium size
  • 1 1/2 cup of cheese I used a mix of shredded mozzarella and sharp cheddar
  • 1 tbsp. Gochujang Korean red chili paste
  • 2 tbsp. Pizza sauce
  • 2-3 Sweet Peppers small, sliced
  • 2 mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 cup Kimchi chopped
  • 2 Scallions chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Red Hot chili flakes

Optional:

  • Egg/s with a pinch of salt
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds

Instructions

  1. Cut chicken breast into thinner chicken strips, season with a bit of salt and peppers (a few pinches) OR Chicken Seasoning, and cook over lightly greased pan for 5-7 minutes, or until done. You can use store-bought cooked grilled chicken.
  2. Preheat oven to 375F.
  3. Take one tortilla and place on a Pizza baking dish, sprinkle with a hand full of cheese, evenly from one end to the other. Place another tortilla on top of that, making cheese in the middle.
  4. Spoon or Squeeze Korean red chili paste on top of the tortilla (look at the instruction pictures), spread it evenly, then add pizza sauce and spread that as well. Add the cheese, leaving just a few sprinkles for the end.
  5. Add mushrooms, and peppers, following chopped kimchi, and chicken strips. (ADD egg if you wish/season with a bit of salt) and sprinkle with chopped scallions.
  6. Lastly, add red hot chili flakes and sprinkle with the rest of the remaining cheese.
  7. Bake until the cheese is completely melted and edges of the tortillas start turning into a golden color, about 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven. Toss a few toasted sesame seeds on top and serve with mayo, ranch dressing or salad.

Recipe Notes

You can add fried egg later on top of the pizza. When you add the uncooked egg before baking, baking time will increase because the egg will not be done completely, especially if you like your egg well DONE.

I like my egg soft, but if you add fried egg later it is equally delicious and less time to cook pizza in the oven. Also, I tried this in the microwave… It was not the same, however, it was softer and still delicious. I made it like a quesadilla. You can add canned TUNA fish, or sauteed seasoned ground beef/or Italian sausages.

Basil Pesto and Cheese Rolls

Basil Pesto and Cheese Rolls

Just like any baked goods, these Basil Pesto and Cheese Rolls are pillowy and comforting at every bite. These are soft, tasty and super easy to make.

Basil Pesto and Cheese Rolls

I do not bake as often as before. Perhaps because I cannot stop eating.

Well, to be honest, any type of bread or rolls is just a pure temptation to me. I would take it over any type of cake.

I still do it for other people and for my family too, but like I said just not as often.

These rolls are so delicious. They literally melt in your mouth but my trick is to let them do their thing; rise dough overnight in the fridge and allow them to double in size when before baking.

I mean, yes, you can make them as soon as dough doubles in size, sure. However, that fermentation process is just so neccecery when it comes to having successful rolls.

That has been my personal experience for the last 20 years, so I just want you guys to just experiment and come to your own conclusion.

Basil Pesto and Cheese Rolls

In order to learn you definitely need to fail at least once, and I failed so many times until my bread, rolls, pizza dough, etc. came out great.

Anyhow, these rolls never last too long in my house especially when all of them are at home during breaks or over the weekend.

I hope your family likes them as much as we do. They are really simple as you can see.

You do not need much to make them, and even if you do not have a stand-up mixer you can knead the dough with your hands. I have made everything using my hands for 19 years.

This is the first year that I am using a stand-up mixer, but that is only because my husband decided to surprise me, otherwise, I would still use my hands. Trust me on that one!

An easy and tasty recipe for Basil Pesto and Cheese Rolls

Ingredients

DOUGH

  • 1 cup of warm water (240ml), a splash more if needed
  • 1 envelope active dry yeast (1/4 oz/21g)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar (8g)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (13.3g)+ for greasing bowl
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour (480g)
  • 3 teaspoons salt (17g)
  • 6 oz Basil Pesto
  • 2-3 oz Cheese, (I used swiss cheese)
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Measure water then adds to dry yeast and sugar. Mix it. When you are using active dry yeast or yeast for pizza you do not have to activate it, but I like to dissolve it in the cup of water anyway.
  2. Measure the flour and add salt then mix it together. Place all the dry ingredients in the work bowl of your stand mixer.
  3. Pour water with yeast and sugar in the flour.
  4. Add the bowl on the mixer and attach the dough hook and turn the mixer to do the job of kneading.
  5. Mix until the dough just comes together, forming a ball and pulling away from the sides of the bowl. Increase the mixer speed to medium and knead for about 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer dough to well oiled larger bowl and cover. Place dough either in the oven or microwave so it could rise. If your oven has a proof setting this is a perfect time to use it, if not just keep it in the turned-off oven. Allow it to rise for the first time for about 45 to 60 minutes. You can make rolls after this point, but I do step 7. and 8. most of the time.
  7. It will double in size. Knead, cover and place in the fridge for about 6-8 hrs/overnight before making rolls.
  8. You do not have to chill the dough, however, they do come out so much better, plus it is easier to roll out. After chilling let it sit at the room temperature for about 15 minutes before rolling out.

FILLING

  1. Dust your working surface with a bit of flour. Roll out dough to (0.635cm) 1/4 inch thick. The size is approximately (38cm) 15 inches wide and (53cm) 21 inches long.
  2. Spread basil pesto from one end to the other, but leave maybe 1/2 inch from the edge so it is easier to roll. Then shred some swiss cheese all over the pesto. You can add more or less and any cheese that you prefer. I will leave this to you.
  3. Slowly roll the dough until you reach the end. Pull ends to have an even end. Slice it in half, then cut the cylinder into 12 to 14 equal slices.
  4. Place cut side up and evenly spaced 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
  5. Cover pan with plastic wrap or a large cotton kitchen towel and set aside in a warm place to let rise for at least 30 minutes to one hour. They need to double in size.

BAKING

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and bake them for 30 to 35 minutes. This also depends on your oven, and baking dish.
  2. If you are baking in the ceramic dish like I did, then bake at a lower temperature, I would do the same if you choose to bake it in cast iron, however, for a regular metal baking dish I would go to 375F and bake for about 25 minutes or until they are nicely golden brown.
  3. As soon as you pull these rolls out brush them with some butter. I used unsalted butter.

Notes

You may use sun-dried tomato pesto or any other filling with this dough.

Cacio e Pepe Butternut Squash

Cacio e Pepe Butternut Squash

Cacio e Pepe Butternut Squash is one delicious, healthy and flavorful recipe. A perfect dish for your meatless Mondays or a quick weeknight dish if you wish to replace carblicious pasta.

Cacio e Pepe Butternut Squash

Well, we all know that Cacio e Pepe, or in translation cheese and pepper, is a simple and delicious way to prepare a pasta dish. It is a pasta dish from modern Roman cuisine.

However, I say move over zoodles because there is a new sheriff in town.

I predict that this year we going to see more and more of butternut squash noodles.

Don’t get me wrong I love zoodles, but you could mix and match and add zoodles to butternut squash for extra nutrition and flavour.

That being said its perfect just the way it is especially if you love butternut squash.

Cacio e Pepe Butternut Squash

You can serve it with any protein such as fish, poultry or meat, or tofu if you want a true meatless meal.

Anyhow, one fine afternoon I had this bowl of raw butternut squash noodles in my fridge. My husband picked up from the store just a few days before.

I would usually spiralize veggies myself, but I guess it was on sale and he got it for me.

He knows how much I love butternut squash. The only butternut squash dish that I never cared for is creamy butternut squash soup.

I do have a fantastic recipe for that soup, but I am just not a fan. Personally to me, it tastes like baby food.

Cacio e Pepe Butternut Squash

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Cacio e Pepe Butternut Squash is one delicious, healthy and flavorful recipe. A perfect dish for your meatless Mondays or a quick weeknight dish if you wish to replace carblicious pasta.

Ingredients

  • 5-6 cups butternut squash noodles (about 2 medium-size butternut squash)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup Pecorino Romano
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, the best if you grind it yourself on the coarsest setting, plus more for serving
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese for serving, if desired

Instructions

  1. Spiralize squashes: Cut necks off squashes and cut each in half crosswise. Using a thin spaghetti blade in a spiral maker, spiralize squash chunks. If noodles are very long, trim with kitchen shears to the desired length. You may use store-bought butternut squash noodles if you wish.
  2. In a large skillet on medium, melt butter and add olive oil. We are using butter even though it is not traditionally used because the butternut squash noodles are not pasta noodles so we need that extra creaminess that butter produces.
  3. Add noodles and salt and cook, tossing occasionally, until tender, about 10 to 12 minutes at medium-high. Add water a bit at the time every few minutes. Note* For regular Cacio e Pepe you would use pasta water, so we are adding splashes of water to help with tenderizing or cooking these veggie noodles faster as well as for making cheese sauce taste better.
  4. Remove skillet from heat and add Pecorino-Romano. as well as ground black pepper. Stir and toss vigorously until both ingredients are well incorporated into the butternut squash noodles. Toss in a drizzle of the olive oil and season with salt if needed.
  5. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese when you serve it if you desire.

Notes

You may add zucchini noodles and mix with butternut squash noodles.

Prep time 10 minutes only if you going to spiralize butternut squash yourself. Cook time depends on the pan and the temperature you are cooking at. I like my skillet wide, and I cook at medium-high heat.
