Sneaky Chef: Power Pizza
Sneaky Chef Power Pizza
With a ready-made pizza crust on hand, this pizza is quicker to make than calling out for delivery from the local pizza place. You can even prepare this pizza ahead of time without cooking it, and then refrigerate for a day or two. Simply bake when you’re ready to eat. Makes 1 large pizza.
1 store-bought, pre-made pizza crust (BoboliR crust works well)
3/4 cup store-bought tomato or pizza sauce
1/4 cup Orange Puree (see Make-Ahead Recipe #2)
1 ½ to 2 cups part-skim, shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place pizza crust on a baking sheet. In a mixing bowl, combine tomato sauce with Orange Puree. Mix well. Spread about 1 cup of the sauce mixture across the large pizza dough, then top with the mozzarella.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until bubbly and lightly browned. Allow to cool a few minutes, then cut into triangles and serve.
Sneaky Chef Make-Ahead Recipe: Orange Puree
1 medium sweet potato or yam, peeled and coarsely chopped
3 medium to large carrots, peeled and sliced into thick chunks
2 to 3 tablespoons water
Place the carrots and sweet potatoes in a medium-sized pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes, until carrots are very tender. Careful - if the carrots aren’t tender enough, they may leave telltale little nuggets of vegetables in recipes, which will reveal their presence to your kids—a gigantic no-no for The Sneaky Chef.
Drain the carrots and sweet potatoes and put them in the food processor with two tablespoons of water. Puree on high until smooth– the consistency of baby food – no pieces or chunks of vegetables showing.Stop occasionally to push the contents to the bottom. If necessary, use another tablespoon of water to smooth out the puree, but the less water, the better.
This recipe makes about 2 cups of puree; double it if you want to store more. Orange Puree will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or you can freeze 1⁄4-cup portions in sealed plastic bags or small plastic containers.
