Welcome to the home of BIZZY people where cooking is fun, quick, easy and delicious. Over the years, my taste in food has changed, as have my recipes. This blog will chronicle the changes I continue to make, as I face challenges in healthier eating and in new methods of cooking.
This week at I Heart Cooking Clubs, it is pot luck week, when we can select from any of the chefs, the club has already cooked. I chose Nigella Lawson who I enjoy very much. Most, I love reading her books. She has a style of her own using descriptive words that are simply endearing. She gives us tips that are practical and workable and of course her recipes are really good.
I was excited when I came across this recipe. When, I read what was in it and how it was made, I had doubts about it coming out, like pizza, and I was correct. It did turn out to be a delicious dish and I would make it again.
Crustless Pizza (adapted from Nigella Kitchen by Nigella Lawson.)
2/3 cup gluten-free brown rice mix 1 cup milk Olive oil cooking spray
1 cup Cheddar 1 tomato, sliced thin 3 scallions, chopped 1/2 green pepper, chopped
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small bowl, beat the egg with the flour, salt, to taste, and milk to make a smooth batter. (Mine was slightly lumpy)
Spray a round ovenproof dish, then stir half the grated cheese into the batter, before pouring it into the dish.
Bake for 30 minutes. Take the dish out of the oven, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and tomatoes, bell pepper and scallions. Return the dish to the oven and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes to make sure it’s heated through.
Once the cheese on top is melted take it out of the oven and serve, cut into slices. A green salad on the side would be a great addition.
Although, it is not like pizza, it makes a nice casserole.
