Muhammara Pita Flatbread

Muhammara Flatbread Pizza

So I have kind of been holding onto this recipe for a while. Well, “recipe” is maybe a bit of a stretch – this is really just another of my favorite ways to serve that delicious muhammara. But you see, I didn’t want to overwhelm you with muhammara recipes, so I paced myself. Kinda.

In case you missed it a few weeks ago, muhammara is a Syrian red pepper and walnut dip. It’s super flavorful and guaranteed to jazz up anything you use it in. This flatbread is a prime example!

BBQ Cauliflower Pizza

BBQ Cauliflower Pizza

I hope you’re as happy as I am to see yet another cauliflower recipe!

I seriously can’t get enough of this stuff lately. I made Asian Orange Cauliflower for dinner last week, followed by this pizza twice this weekend. I’m officially a huge cauliflower fan.

BBQ Cauliflower Pizza

When I say cauliflower pizza, you may assume that this is one of those gluten-free cauliflower crust deals. Not so. I’ve never tried a cauliflower crust recipe, mostly because I sure do love picking up fresh pizza dough from Whole Foods when I’m too lazy to make it myself. Given the recent cauliflower craze in my life, though, I’m sure a cauliflower crust is in my future.

But for now, it’s any kind of crust you like (feel free to double up on cauliflower!), topped with roasted cauliflower that’s been smothered in barbecue sauce. I’m relatively certain that nothing with barbecue sauce has ever come out of my kitchen before, but blogging is great for expanding the horizons like that. Also, Nate sure didn’t voice any complaints about this pizza appearing twice in one weekend, so I have a feeling the barbecue flavor is here to stay around these parts.

Vegan Thai Pizza

Vegan Thai Pizza from Coffee & Quinoa

Today I come to you with a very important question: How do you eat your leftover pizza?

This is one of those conversations we’ve had about a million times in the lunchroom at work. The reason is that one co-worker, a New Yorker and self-proclaimed pizza snob, refuses to microwave his leftover pizza. He claims it makes the crust soggy and ruins the pizza. Another former co-worker was dead-set against eating cold any food that was supposed to be eaten hot, and found it completely unacceptable not to microwave leftovers. And soooo this same topic was hashed out and re-hashed whenever anyone brought pizza for lunch.

Me, I’m not against microwaving pizza. If I’m at home, I’ll use the toaster oven instead to crisp up the crust, but at work (or at home now that our toaster doesn’t seem to have survived the move) I’ll stick it in the microwave. I’d usually rather do that than eat cold food – eating a cold lunch in our over-air-conditioned office makes me sad. But I discovered that what I really like to do (and this goes for all leftovers, not just pizza) is to take one bite cold and then heat up the rest. I’m not sure why… maybe I’m just impatient? Or I like to take the opportunity to see what the dish tastes like cold, which I obviously didn’t have the night before when it was fresh? It’s a mystery, and it might be quirky, but that’s just what I like to do.

People have strong feelings about their pizza, clearly. I’m not too picky, other than my preferred reheating method – it all sounds good to me, and that’s probably the reason that I love the idea of this vegan Thai pizza. With neither tomatoes nor cheese, this is clearly not your typical New York- or Italian-style pizza. Instead, it’s made with a peanut butter sauce and veggies that roast to a crunchy perfection as it cooks. It’s actually kind of like the pizza version of my favorite noodle dish! I think it’s clear that we can add a peanut sauce to anything and I’m in love.
