Fake pizza with zucchini pad
What we need:
For the pad:
1 medium size zucchini with soft skin and very small seeds ( if it's bigger, then peel the hard skin and remove the seeds, you should get two handfuls of grated zucchinis)
1 tbsp of yogurt
50 ml of milk
1 glass (220ml) of flour
1 teaspoon of granulated garlic
salt and pepper
1 tbsp of olive oil, plus extra for greasing the pan.
For the topping:
3 tbsp of tomato sauce
some leftovers of roasted chicken
a good lump of mozzarela cheese
What we have to do:
1. To prepare the pad, grate the zucchini and mix in all the ingredients. It should turn into a thick pancake batter.
2. Pre-heat the pan and grease it with olive oil. Pour all the batter into the pan, even the top and let it fry for 3-4 minutes until the bottom turns beautifully brown. Then turn it upside down ( as it turns into a big pancake, the easiest way to turn it without breaking is to slid it into a big plate, then put the pan over the plate and using a thick towel turn the plate and the pan, then put the pan on the cooker and continue frying the other side). When it's brown on both sides, then it's time to prepare the topping.
3. You can always put whatever your favourite pizza has to have. As our favourite pizza is with caramelized onions and mushrooms, that's what I put. I sliced the onion, seasoned with salt and pepper, and slowly fried it until caramelized. Then fried the mushrooms. On the pad I spread some tomato sauce, then put the onions, then the mushrooms and some chicken leftovers, tomatoes and cheese. A good sprinkle of oregano and into the oven until the cheese melts. Enjoy!!!
