roasted eggplant and za'atar pizza
Most weekends I make pizza for my Saturday night dinner. I love pizza but make it at home as I can't tolerate the quantity of mozzarella cheese used in restaurants. At home I use buffalo mozzarella instead or look for recipes which use another kind of cheese.
As you know I'm travelling soon which means I have a fridge filled with food that needs to be used before I go. I had half a block of haloumi cheeese leftover from these pumpkin and haloumi burgers and was looking for a way to use it. I decided to adapt Sara's recipe using haloumi cheese instead of feta and as always, I made another change or two along the way. I'm not a huge fan of tahini so instead of the tahini, I used 3 tablespoons of baba ganoush. I didn't have any wholemeal plain flour in my cupboards, so I used white flour but added some quinoa flour in the pizza dough. Oh and of course I cut back on the mozzarella cheese.
It's a really tasty pizza and with half a block of feta cheese in the fridge, some leftover pizza dough and an eggplant in the fruit bowl I can see I'll be making another version of this pizza before I go away. This time I'm wondering how the addition of a few olives on top would taste?
Only 7 more sleeps now until I fly to Montreal. Very excited! I'll post on Monday and then I'll blog when I can, time and internet connections willing.
See you all soon,
