Good Morning Everyone! Happy Tuesday! See how I did that? I just skipped right on by Monday. Actually I was just totally swamped yesterday and didn’t get around to doing a post.
What did everyone get up to this weekend?
On Friday when we got home our TV and Internet was down, so I called the cable company assuming that they just needed to reset something. Turns out they needed to send someone out and they couldn’t send someone until Saturday morning, that was frightening. A Friday night with no cable and internet? What were we going to do with ourselves?
We ended up making our pizza and then I remembered that I had some Son’s of Anarchy on my computer, so we hooked up the computer to the TV the old fashioned way since we couldn’t stream.
Then Saturday my Mom and I made a big feast of halibut and chips for the whole family.
Instagramming while frying is dangerous, don’t attempt it.
Then on I told you guys on Thursday that the Eat Vancouver show was on over the weekend. I mentioned last week that I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go since I have been the past few years and it tends to be a lot of the same vendors as previous years, but I decided to go in the end. I went with my parents, Mr. Delish and my buddy -purses by tascha. We all went for brunch in the morning on Sunday and I had my typical Eggs Benny, I can’t resist, if it’s on the menu I have to get it. Then we wandered over to the show.
I was happy that I ended up going because there were lots of new vendors and it ended up being a great time. It was also Tascha’s first time going so that made it more fun too.
Now back to food! It’s always about the food.
I asked you on Facebook if you had ever tried butter chicken pizza, because I am obsessed with it. We have a Pizza place right near our house that makes a mean butter chicken pizza. I think the place hates me because when I order it, I end up modifying the heck out of it. Normally it comes with butter chicken and sauce, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, tomatoes, cheese and cilantro. I always order it without the mushrooms, onions or peppers. I just think it tastes so much better that way, and that is why I made mine this way.
Of course, if you want to add vegetables you can definitely do that.
Basically, you start off with some pizza dough, chicken, store bought butter chicken sauce, tomatoes, mozza and cilantro. Easy Peasy.
What I did was diced up some chicken breasts and sauteed them until cooked through, then I added the butter chicken sauce and got it nice and heated through, I also added some sriracha to mine because I needed more spice!
Then I layered the butter chicken and sauce right onto the pizza dough.
Deal with it.
Now you bake it off!
Now add some cilantro for some greenery
I’ll see you all at dinner.
Butter Chicken Pizza:
1 prepared pizza crust on a non stick cookie sheet (not cooked) my recipe is below
1 tbsp olive oil
2 small chicken breasts diced
1 jar (14 oz/400ml) butter chicken sauce ( I used Patak’s Brand)
2 tbsp sriracha chile sauce
1 cup diced tomatoes
2 cups grated mozzarella
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a medium saute pan, heat oil over medium high heat, add chicken breasts and saute until browned and cooked through, add the jarred butter chicken sauce and the sriracha. Bring to a simmer and turn off the heat. Set aside.
Top the prepared pizza dough with the butter chicken, you may not need all the chicken and sauce. Then add the tomatoes, followed by the mozzarella.
Bake for 15 minutes and then lower heat to 375 and bake for another 5-7 minutes until the cheese is browned and the crust is golden. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the cilantro. Allow the pizza to cool in the pan for 5-6 minutes. Move to a cutting board and slice into squares.
Enjoy! Pizza Crust recipe below!
Thin and Crispy Pizza Dough:
makes one large pizza dough (size of a regular cookie sheet)
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp Yeast
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cup flour
In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in water and then sprinkle the yeast over the water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
After the 10 minutes is up, add the salt, oil and 1/2 cup of flour, stir until smooth. Add another 1/2 cup of flour and stir again, if the mixture is still very sticky add in a little more flour and begin to kneed. Kneed for about 5 minutes, adding more flour if needed, until the dough becomes soft and elastic. Best thing about this recipe? It doesn’t need to rise! Throw it in a pan, add toppings, bake and enjoy.
