Pizza Hut Paper Thin Crust Pizza

Post  justmecookin on Mon Oct 20, 2008 1:25 pm

Pizza Hut Paper Thin Crust Pizza

2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon yeast (proofed in water)
4 cups flour
3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil, plus oil for pans
1 1/2 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons salt

Combine all ingredients in a mixer and knead for 10 minutes. Place in large bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to ferment as long as possible (12-24 hours). Punch down dough now and then when you get the chance.

Preheat oven to 550 degrees. Roll the dough as thin as desired. (roll, flour and flip, until you end up with a shape equal to 90% the size of your pan, as it will stretch when you transfer the dough. (make sure you oil your pan)

For regular pizza, add your toppings and bake for 10 minutes.

However, since this particular recipe was meant for light toppings, you'll need to oil the crust, then prick it with a fork and pre-bake for 3 minutes.

Now remove from oven, add your favorite toppings and return to oven for 10-15 minutes or till cheese is bubbly and outer edge of crust is a light golden brown. Makes 2 pizzas

2 to 3 green onions, chopped

In a small bowl or cup, blend mustard, ginger, garlic and molasses. Stir in soy sauce and set aside. Heat a large, nonstick frying pan or skillet over medium heat. Spray center generously with canola cooking spray. Pour egg substitute in the middle of pan and tilt to spread egg out.

Sprinkle salt and pepper over the top if desired. Once the underside is lightly browned, flip egg over and cook about a minute longer or until bottom is lightly browned. Cut into small pieces with knife and set aside.

Spray more canola oil into pan and heat over medium heat. Add shrimp and let sizzle for about a minute. Add peas and carrots and stir-fry, tossing occasionally, for about 2 minutes or until shrimp is warmed throughout. Add steamed rice, stir and let cook about a minute.

Drizzle the soy-sauce mixture over the top of rice mixture, stir, and let cook another minute or two. Turn off heat and stir in green onion and pieces of egg. Serve, offering additional soy sauce at the table, if desired. Makes 2 servings

P.F. Chang's China Bistro Coconut-Curry Vegetables

Post  justmecookin on Mon Oct 20, 2008 1:51 pm

P.F. Chang's China Bistro Coconut-Curry Vegetables

1 small onion, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
1 small red bell pepper, cubed
1 cup halved mushrooms
4 ounces (3 cups) broccoli
1 cup thinly sliced carrots or whole sugar snap peas

Coconut-Curry Sauce
1/2 cup canned coconut milk
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons unseasoned rice vinegar or cider vinegar
2 teaspoons canola oil
2 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 1 1/2 tablespoons cold water

Separately blanch the broccoli and carrots (or sugar snap peas) until tender-crisp in plain boiling water. Drain and rush under cold water to stop the cooking. Drain again. Combine the Coconut-Curry Sauce ingredients. Taste and adjust the sugar to your liking.

Heat a wok or wide skillet over high heat until hot. Add the canola oil, swirl to glaze the pan. Then add the onions and bell pepper. Stir-fry until tender-crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and stir until hot, a few minutes more. Add the blanched vegetables and toss to mix.

Stir the sauce and add it to the pan. Bring it to a simmer, tossing to combine. Stir the cornstarch mixture to recombine and add it to the pan. Stir until the sauce turns glossy, about 10 seconds (a bit longer if you are doubling the sauce).

Add the sesame oil and toss to mix. Serve with rice, noodles or a warm loaf of bread. Serves 2 to 4 people. Look for Chaokah brand, sold in Asian groceries. Be sure to stir well to incorporate the solids before using.
