During the pandemic, I am taking taste-bud journeys as I self-isolate rather than physical journeys. Here is my adapted recipe for my second round of making a Pourable Pizza. I used half the recipe for one 7" pepperoni pizza. I used the other half of the recipe to make a bell pepper and cheese pizze. It was inspired by watching several of the Pourable Pizza videos on YouTube. I will include the link to the first one that I watched near the end of this blog.
Conclusion: This is definitely super easy to make. The only difference between my recipe and the recipe used in most of those YouTube tutorials is that I added 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder to each batch of pizza. I think it made it even better than the first time I attempted this recipe. The only other change I made is that I accidentally used a bit more than 1 egg (Egg Beaters) in each pizza instead of what was called for and then added a bit more flour. I think it made the results even tastier and more pizza-like.I may do this on purpose the next time I make these as I found the texture and taste quite improved.
Recipe - This is half of the recipe to make a smaller, 7 inch pizza. I doubled it and made two 7" pizzas instead.
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp Italian seasonings
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 egg (or 1/4 to 1/3 cup Egg Beaters)
- As much meat toppings as you desire
- As much pizza sauce as you desire
- As much veggie toppings as you desire
- As much mozzarella cheese as you desire
- Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, mix together dry ingredients for the pourable pizza dough.
- Step 2: Add the wet ingredients. Stir. This will be the consistency of a pancake batter.
- Step 3: Either use a cast iron pan or silicone molds, as I did. Butter the total inside surface of the pan you intend to use.
- Step 4: Pour the batter into the pan. Make certain that it has spread out to cover all the bottom surface of the pan. It will be between 1/8 inch and 1/4 inch thick.
- Step 5: Add the meat distributed around the pizza dough.
- Step 6: Place this pan into the oven on the bottom rack. Bake for 20 minutes until the edges are golden brown and crispy-looking.
- Step 7: Leave the oven on. Remove the pan from the oven. Add as much pizza sauce as you desire.
- Step 8: Add any veggies you desire. Then, cover the pizza with as much mozzarella cheese as you desire.
- Step 9: Return the pan to the oven and bake for 10 more minutes or until the cheese has melted and browned a bit.
- Step 10: Turn off the oven. Remove the pan from the oven. Place the pizzas on a cooling rack.
- Step 11: Then, plate, slice, and serve. These microwave nicely as leftovers.
