Pizza night is a great opportunity to use up random things around your kitchen. You can put almost anything on a pizza shell, bake it and enjoy. I don’t have to tell you that pizza is a great, quick week night dinner.
Tonight I browned a 1/2 lb +/- of ground beef that was hanging around my fridge and a chopped up half of a small onion. (Save the rest for Western omelets!) I added a hefty dose of cumin and some salt/pepper. After it was all brown and delicious looking – I added in a small can of chopped green chilies and let that saute for a couple of minutes. I spread the whole thing on a thin pre-baked pizza shell. I added plenty of shredded cheese – extra sharp.
I also had the last of the cherry tomato harvest on hand so I sliced up a few of those and dotted them on the top. I finished with an extra sprinkle of salt, pepper and cumin and squirted a bit of fresh lime juice on top for sparkle.
Into a preheated 425 degree oven on the pizza stone and 8-10 mins later a crispy, delicious, cheesy pizza emerged.
