For this month's The Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned Eat Laugh Love, a blog written by Denise Evans. She has a great passion for food and a ton of yummy, adventurous recipes. I really wanted to try her recipe for Pumpkin Gingerbread Blueberry Muffins, but I've been trying to get Mr. Meaty more involved with menu planning. So, when I narrowed down the choices to four, he picked Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza. The other delicious options were Baked Shrimp and Veggie Egg Rolls and Fried Chicken. I hope to try converting them all to veggie favorites in the future.
But, on today's plate, is "Chicken" Cordon Bleu Pizza, which I converted to veggie by using chickpea flour for the "chickeny" protein and avocado for the ham.
Chickpea Cordon Bleu Pizza
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 C red bell pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic, smashed and minced
2 T Dijon mustard
2 T Herbs de Provence
1 C grated Swiss cheese
Mix the garlic, sour cream, mustard, and Herbs de Provence in a small bowl. Spread the sauce on the dough, spreading to the edges of the dough.
- Pizza Crust
- 2 T butter
- 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 C red bell pepper, diced
- 1 C button mushrooms, sliced
- 4 cloves garlic, smashed and minced
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 T Dijon mustard
- 2 T Herbs de Provence
- 1 C chickpeas
- 1 C grated Swiss cheese
- Preheat oven and pizza stone at 450 degrees.
- Caramelize the onions in butter for about 20 minutes, until they begin to brown. Add bell pepper and mushrooms and sauté until softened.
- Roll the pizza dough into a round shape on parchment paper that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Trim the paper around the dough so the paper does not burn.
- Mix the garlic, sour cream, mustard, and Herbs de Provence in a small bowl. Spread the sauce on the dough, spreading to the edges of the dough.
- Cover with the cooked vegetables and chickpeas. Evenly sprinkle the cheese over the entire pizza.
