Pizza Is The Savoir Of All Inter-dietary Relationships

 

While some people are waiting for it to rain men, I’m over here praying for pizza to fall from the sky and land in my mouth. Why? Because pizza is the savior of all inter-dietary relationships and the best solution for avoiding catastrophic arguments over dinner time.

It’s is like that friend that you can just vibe with, the one that doesn’t make you put on real pants or wash your hair, but still makes you feel loved and classy. Aside from tacos (remember my last post about “Choosing Your Own Adventure”?) pizza is one of the most versatile dinner options around, especially for two people with opposing viewpoints on food.

Tip #3:  Choose meals that have a lot of shared ingredients, this not only cuts down on your grocery spend but also cuts down on prep time and clean up.

Tina calls it flatbread, you call it pizza and I call it my best friend... but In all seriousness, pizza has become a staple in our dinner rotation, and I’m not even mad about it.

Voeden has an awesome spelt flour crust recipe that you can access when you log-in. As always, we encourage you to double-up the recipe every time you make a batch so that you can freeze a disc and store it for later. Spelt tastes a little different than your favorite butter soaked Jet’s pizza but it's still really enjoyable when you dress it up. 

Make pizza night an interactive event. Create a pizza bar, full of your favorite toppings so that you and your significant other can pick and choose your favorites. This week I’m sharing our new winter recipe for a Caramelized Onion & Sweet Potato Flatbread. Simply add a little bit of fresh prosciutto to the top of this pie for the meat lover in your life (trust me it’ll blow their mind).

 

Sweet Potato & Caramelized Onion Flatbread

  • 1 batch - spelt flour dough OR
  • 4 - garbanzo bean flatbreads OR
  • 4-6 - tortillas of choice
  • 1 T. - grassfed butter
  • 4 T. - olive oil
  • 2 - large white onions, 1/8" thick slices
  • 2 c. - kale, chopped
  • 1/2 t. - sea salt
  • 1/4 t. - black pepper
  • 1/2 c. - goat cheese (optional)
  • 1 - large sweet potato, sliced 1/8" thick

Method

  1. If making whole grain or spelt pizza dough, prepare the dough 1-2 hours ahead of time.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a medium pan, heat 4 T. olive oil over medium-low heat. Sauté onion for 20 minutes. Keep the onions on medium-low heat so that they do not burn.
  3. Finely chop kale, and add to the pan with the onion. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
  4. Slice sweet potato into 1/8" thick slices. Top the flat bread with sweet potatoes, caramelized onions, kale, and goat cheese, if using. Bake for 15-20 min. at 300 degrees.
