Love pizza but tired of the same ol’, same ol’?!? Here is an Asian twist on pizza and salad. Make the coleslaw a few hours ahead of time and prep the pizza toppings then, so you are ready at meal time!
Asian Slaw: Serves 6 to 8
1 small cabbage (or ½ large cabbage), cut into wedges and sliced thin
2 to 3 carrots, shredded OR 2 or 3 handfuls of pre-shredded carrots
1 head boy choy, washed and sliced into thin, bite-sized pieces
½ cup Asian Dressing *I use Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame – Reduced Fat
2 TBSP Soy Vay Hoisin Garlic Asian Glaze & Marinade
Sesame seeds - optional
Mint - leaves of 3 or 4 fresh sprigs, sliced thin - optional
In a large airtight container, mix cabbage, carrots and bok choy.
In a measuring cup stir together Asian Dressing and Hoisin Garlic Asian Glaze and Marinade. Pour over cabbage mixture; place lid on tightly and SHAKE like crazy until evenly coated!! Place in fridge, taking time to SHAKE again every half hour or so!
Upon serving, sprinkle with sesame seeds and mint, if desired.
Asian Pizzas: Serves 4 to 6
4 Flatout Flatbread *I use Healthy Grain (100% Stone Ground Wheat - Multi-Grain with Flax)**
¼ cup BBQ Sauce *I use Sweet Baby Ray’s
¼ cup Soy Vay Hoisin Garlic Asian Glaze & Marinade
½ rotisserie chicken, meat picked off bone and shredded into small bite-sized pieces
½ to 1 cup cheese, shredded fine *I use Monterey Jack, Mexican Blend or Mozzarella cheese
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 green onions - white and green parts, sliced thin
Mint - leaves of 3 or 4 fresh sprigs, torn or sliced thin – optional
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F – I use the CONVECTION setting.
Place flatbread on a sheet pan.
In a small bowl mix BBQ Sauce and Hoisin Garlic Asian Glaze & Marinade; spread one heaping TBSP evenly on each flatbread with the back of spoon. Evenly disperse chicken, cheese and tomatoes on flatbread. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until edges start to crisp and cheese is melted. (If using a conventional oven, baking time may be 7 to 10 minutes – depending on oven. --TC)
Remove to cutting board and garnish with green onions. Allow pizza to cool slightly then cut with a pizza wheel. Just before serving, garnish with mint.
I like the coleslaw on top of my pizza – mounded in the middle. My children and husband like the slaw on the side… you decide, it is your plate!!
**NOTE: The Flatout Flatbread packaging has the following statement… “WARNING: TO AVOID POSSIBLE FIRE, DO NOT USE IN TOASTER OVEN.” I have to admit, this is the first time in 2 years of using this product that I have seen the warning. That being said, use at your own risk! ? --Courtesy of Sabryna, The Traveling Cook at Home with the Kids – March 2011.
