I come from a culinary family, so obviously, I'm not the only one who cooks in my kitchen (okay, so I tend to hog it a lot, but my sister loves me for that...I hope). She's wonderful though and will sometimes act as my sous chef and prepare the ingredients for my recipes while I'm at night class or working late on my thesis, which is due quite soon (hence the delay in posts--often, I'm too exhausted to blog after coming home at night lately). So I decided to thank her by posting some of her recipes (plus one I made for her to break the fast of Passover last weekend)! Please enjoy reading:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2) For the crust, mix dry ingredients including the spices and Parmesan cheese in a large mixing bowl.
3) Add vegetable broth and mix in with a large wooden spoon (can be done in a food processor as well).
4) Whisk eggs in a small bowl before pouring them into the dough and stir thoroughly, until dough reaches a liquidity state.
5) Generously grease a large baking pan with Pam olive oil and pour dough, spreading with a rubber spatula to fill the pan.
6) Bake crust in the oven for about 20-30 minutes or until it looks golden and bounces back to the touch.
7) Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by combining all the ingredients into a food processor. **Make sure you chop the mushrooms so they don't clog up the processor.
8) Take out the crust momentarily from the oven once it's done and spread the mushroom-tomato sauce over the pizza dough, topping it with the additional toppings or any toppings of your choice really!
9) Place pizza back into the oven and bake for about another 20-25 minutes, sprinkling the cheese on top about halfway through.
10) Remove from oven and let it cool down--I actually found that the dough became more chewy and less soft once eaten the next day and for the first time, I actually almost got a real pizza dough chewy consistency! Three times is the charm I suppose! I think it was the eggs, which acted as a binder, and which also made this pizza vegetarian and not vegan, but oh well. I'm not a vegan anyway--I just like eating vegan food from time to time.
11) Reheat a pizza slice and serve! **Note: to clean the pan, because I had a hard time removing the pizza due to not greasing the pan well enough, you should leave it to soak in the sink overnight to get the remnants of the dough off the pan for a less messy and frustrating clean-up situation!
Enjoy and Bon Appetit!
