Pizza Today - December 2019 - 33

* MOZZARELLA. Think mozz bar.

Showcase your fresh mozzarella and
burrata, accompanied by roasted cherry
tomatoes and prosciutto.
If you have a killer craft beer menu,
why not work with your restaurant beer
guru to create a one-of-a-kind beer
cheese featuring a local or specialty craft
beer on draft? Serve it with a warm,
house-made pretzel.
NICE TO MEAT YOU

Take traditional Italian appetizers and
apply new spins on them. Mix up the
following Italian favorites:
* MEATBALLS. Change the look of
everyone's favorite meatballs by going
with pork or chicken and a Parmesan
cream sauce.
* FRIED CALAMARI. The classic can
become Tempura fried calamari by
changing the breading. See the recipe
below.

Avocado Fries
5 medium-sized ripe avocados
¼ cup flour
2 eggs
1 cup Panko-style breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup milk
½ cup Parmesan
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Slice avocados in half lengthwise
and remove pits. Then cut into wedges
and remove peels. Note: You may use
slightly under ripe avocados.
Pour flour into one medium bowl and
two eggs (beaten) into another bowl.
Combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan, salt
and pepper into third bowl.
Toss avocado wedge in the flour,
then dip it in the egg to coat.
Next, dip the wedge in the breadcrumbs to coat thoroughly.
Arrange the breaded sticks in a
single layer on a baking sheet.
Fry the breaded avocado in hot oil
(350-360 F).
Fry until golden, usually just over a
minute.
Remove from the oil and let drain.
Serve with spicy ranch.

Tempura Fried Calamari
2 pounds squid rings,
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1 egg
3/4 cup ice-cold water
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Heat the oil in the deep fryer to 375
F. In a large bowl, combine egg (beaten)
and water (without the ice). Add flour
and loosely mix. Note: Batter will be

lumpy.
Emerge the squid rings in the batter to
coat. Shake to remove excess batter (putting the squid rings in a sieve or strainer
makes this go easier).
Drop the squid rings in the hot oil and
fry for no longer than 2 minutes (overcooking turns delicate rings into chewy
rubber). Remove from the fryer and
drain. Serve with a chili sauce. n
DENISE GREER is
