Pizza Today - December 2017 - 53

West Coast Chopped
Salad

Fried Mozzarella
1 pound mozzarella string cheese or
sticks cut from a block
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
Oil for frying
Marinara sauce for dipping

½ head iceberg lettuce, chopped
into 1/8-inch wide strips
½ head romaine lettuce, chopped
into 1/8-inch wide strips
10 basil leaves, chopped
12 ounces mozzarella, shredded
6 ounces sharp cheddar, cut into
small cubes
2 pounds Roma tomatoes, diced
1 cup honey ham, diced
1 cup turkey breast, diced
¼ cup red onion, chopped
½ cup black olives, chopped
Toss all ingredients together in
large bowl and keep covered in
cooler. To serve, toss salad with
requested dressing and serve on
chilled salad plates.

Use 3 bowls or plates - 1 bowl for the
flour, 1 for the egg and 1 for the breadcrumbs. Toss the cheese in the flour, then
dip it in the egg to coat.
Next, dip the cheese in the breadcrumbs to coat thoroughly.
Arrange the breaded sticks in a single
layer on a baking sheet.
Refrigerate for up to an hour. You can
make a number of trays. Don't crowd the
sticks on the trays, though. Cover with
plastic wrap and refrigerate. The window
here is about 2 hours in the cooler.
Beyond that they pick up too much moisture and the breadcrumb coating tends to
peel off during frying.
To order, fry the breaded mozzarella in
hot oil (350 to 360 F). Fry until golden,
usually less than a minute. Remove from
the oil and let drain.
Serve with warm marinara sauce.

Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms
4 large portobello mushrooms,
cleaned, stems removed. Rinsed
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ pound sweet Italian sausage, cooked
and crumbled, or pre-cooked Italian
sausage crumbles
4-6 thin slices of fresh plum or Roma
tomatoes
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
4-6 ounces shredded mozzarella
cheese
Brush the inside of the mushroom cap
with the olive oil. Divide the sausage
meat among the mushrooms. Divide
tomato slices among the mushrooms.
Sprinkle an equal amount of Parmesan
cheese over the tomato. Sprinkle an
equal amount of mozzarella over each
mushroom. Sprinkle on the oregano.
Set the mushrooms on a pizza pan or
baking sheet. Broil or bake until the
cheese is melted.

Grilled Flat Bread with SunDried Tomato Vinaigrette
and Parmesan Lace
1 pizza dough
½ cup sun-dried tomato vinaigrette
Parmesan cheese wedges
Prepare grill for direct cooking with
moderate heat. While grill is heating,

divide dough in half, press and roll into
two thin circles, 12 to 14 inches each.
Wipe grill grate with oiled paper-towel
or cloth. Grill crusts one at a time,
about 2-3 minutes on first side, then
turn carefully with tongs and brush with
sun-dried tomato vinaigrette. Grill on
second side until done, 1 to 2 minutes.
Cut into 8 wedges, top with Parmesan
wedges and serve.
