Turkey Pizza With all the Trimmings

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Not looking forward to slaving over a hot stove all day to provide your friends and family a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings? Try my turkey pizza instead!

For the Dough
3/4 cup lukewarm water
1 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

For the Sauce
250ml whipping cream
4 tbsp. butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
5 strips crispy bacon, chopped 

For the Toppings
1 lb. roast turkey or chicken
3-4 golden fingerling potatoes
1 small red onion
4 tbsp. whole cranberry sauce
1 sprig fresh rosemary 

1. Prepare dough – Mix all ingredients and let it rise until dough doubled in size, about 1 hour. Dust a pizza stone with flour. Roll out the dough to fit stone. Let rise for 20 minutes. 

2. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

3. Prepare sauce – melt butter over medium low heat. Add garlic and saute lightly – don’t burn the garlic! Stir in the cream and bring to a simmer and reduce heat. Add bacon and simmer until desired consistency is reached.

4. Spread sauce thinly on dough then arrange the remaining toppings as desired.

5. Bake in the center of the oven until the dough is golden at the edges, about 35 minutes. Remove, let sit for 5 minutes, then cut and serve.

Feel free to send me any tips or revisions to help make this the best Christmas pizza ever!

The Sugar Plum Experiment

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

The way I figure it, there are two kinds of sugar plums – the chopped dried fruit-and-nut-ball bullshit kind and the sixteenth century method of preserving the fruit in pure sugar syrup. 

I chose to make the latter.

The Historic Cookery Page has a recipe adapted from Sir Hugh Plat’s Delights for Ladies (published 1609). The process is long and complicated, and the result tastes like a toothache, but you’ll feel like a better person for having made them.

There’s a faster recipe here that I might try out as well….
