Recipe: The dish with no name

Hey everybody!

So here is one of the 2 recipes that I promised you yesterday!
I created this recipe a few years ago after seeing a tv show. It was a recipe that was originally brought over from the Ukraine, but since they never released the recipe I had to make it up from memory!
It is a mix between a pizza and a calzone, but has a ground meat filling with lots of onions, paprika, and garlic!

The dish with no name recipe

Ingredients:

  • Pizza dough (check out this link for the recipe)
  • 1 pound ground beef or sausage
  • 2 large yellow onions, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to: 375 degrees F
  2. In a medium sauce pan, lightly brown the yellow onions and garlic, this should take from 5-7 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cooked onions and garlic with the meat, paprika, chili powder, oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Roll out 2, 12″ pizza crusts. On a large baking tray, place a piece of parchment paper a little larger than the pizza crust. Place one of the pizza crusts on the parchment paper.
  5. Spread the meat mixture on the pizza crust so it forms a layer around 1/2″ thick, make sure you leave a 1″ gap of dough with no meat around the outside.
  6. Place the second crust on top of the meat mixture. Pinch the top crust together with the bottom crust.
  7. Lightly oil the top, and sprinkle some coarse salt on as well.
  8. Place in oven and cook for 25-30 minutes. Check that the meat is cooked through with a thermometer, and remove from the oven.
  9. Let sit for 2-3 minutes, cut into 8 pieces and serve!

Jake’s thin crust pizza with Prosciutto and Cremini mushrooms

Hey everyone!

Here is my absolute favourite thin crust pizza recipe! It is not like any of the pizza that you get from your local pizza place, it is super thin, crispy, and has very little toppings!

I have been making pizza this way for the past 4 years and I have yet to find anyone who doesn’t love this pizza! Make sure you use a pizza stone, this is not optional! It is a requirement!

Pizza dough recipe

Dough Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 – 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Coarse corn meal

Topping Ingredients:

  • 150 grams thin slice Prosciutto
  • 5 Cremini mushrooms, slice thinly
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • Unripened goats cheese
  • Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • Balsamic glaze
  • Small handful fresh basil
  • Olive oil

Preparations/cooking:

  1. Place pizza stone on the lowest rack, preheat the oven to 550 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 1 1/4 cups of the flour, the yeast, and the salt; add the warm water to the flour mixture. Mix with an electric mixer on low for 30 seconds. Once all the ingredients are mixed, turn on high and mix for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Stir as much of the remaining flour in with a wooden spoon.
  3. Lightly flour a clean surface and knead dough until moderately stiff dough, (around 4-5 minutes). Let it sit for 5 minutes before rolling out.
  4. Cut the dough into 4 equal parts. On a clean, lightly floured surface, roll out as thin as possible, this should make at least a 12″ circle.
  5. Turn a baking sheet upside down and spread 1 tbsp course corn meal on it (this helps the dough slide off the baking pan). Place the dough gently on the baking sheet.
  6. Lightly oil the dough and the spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on top. Top with prosciutto, mushrooms, basil, desired amount of goats cheese, and parmesan. Drizzle on a generous amount of balsamic.
  7. Slide off the pan onto the pizza stone with a spatula.
  8. Cook until the top starts to brown and the crust is crisp (approx. 5-7 minutes).
  9. Remove from the oven and cut, serve immediately!
