Vegetarian Calzone Recipe (Pizza Pocket) Recipe

My husband Lulu worked from home today, so I improvised a little lunch for him. I made little pizza pockets filled with béchamel-coated vegetarian beef strips.  I used store-bought whole wheat pizza dough, I already had béchamel sauce made and I added leeks and onions to the filling.

I paired the calzone with tomato soup. Lulu was on a phone call when I brought him lunch but he gave me two thumbs up after finishing his tray of food!

Southwest BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe Recipe

Two weeks ago, I helped the California Lavash team shoot photos of their new line of products. We spent two days cooking, chatting, foodstyling, taking photos and of course, eating. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun as well.

Here's one of my favorite dishes from the shoot: Southwestern chicken pizza. It takes no more than 15 minutes to prepare and it is oh, so good. All you need is delicious California Lavash naan, BBQ sauce, roasted chicken, corn salad, onions and a blend of Monterey Jack cheese and cheddar cheese. I replicated the same pizza for the vegetarians in my family by substituting black beans for the chicken. It's that easy!

Light Pizza Recipe

Here's a pizza that's not only delicious, but will take you no more than 10 minutes tops to prepare. I used  California Pizza Lavash bread and topped it with colorful elements: turkey bacon and a bit of feta cheese for the base, covered with yellow bell pepper, freshly cut juicy tomatoes, arugula and a drizzle of balsamic syrup.

You can't beat that. Moreover, it's quite healthy (just make sure to control the portions of bacon and cheese).

Indian Pizza Recipe: Tomato Chutney Pizza Recipe

Since I had my daughter, I haven't had a lot of time to cook so I got some ready-made pizza dough from Trader Joe's. instead of using regular tomato sauce I used indian tomato chutney to make the dish more flavorful. I topped it with fried paneer, smoked goat cheddar cheese, mozzarella and parmesan. This is not your average four-cheese pizza!

Paneer Masala Pizza (Indian Style Pizza Recipe) Recipe

I ventured into the world of fusion and decided to break the rules by making pizza with Indian toppings. I prepared a traditional paneer butter masala with a mixture of flavorful, bold spices. I used the spicy sauce as the primary flavor for the pizza. In addition, I sprinkled a little Parmesan cheese to hold everything together and finished it with fresh cilantro.

The trick to coming up with your own fusion dishes is to use one recipe as the “base” and then replace a key ingredient with something from another culture. The sauce and cheese used on pizza are perfect targets and paneer butter masala takes care of both. If you wanted to make it even more Indian, you could replace the pizza crust with a naan. It’s a great way to introduce new foods to kids in a way that’s familiar but fresh.
