our first friday pizza night at the farm was a frozen thing that we smothered in mascarpone and topped with salami. we ate it on the floor. it was good, but more of a soft opening pizza night than a big wowee zowee fireworks included grand opening pizza night. so tonight, i'm pulling out all of the stops, including overnight pizza dough, homemade labneh, and a party of spices, and we're gonna eat it on our new couch in front of episode v. i've always dreamt of having the best couch in all the land, and i failed miserably picking out couches for both of my new york apartments, but this hand-me-down from eggboy's granny is top notch. so top notch that i'm going to have to think of another place to put the doghouse for when eggboy is in trouble. (he doesn't actually ever get in that much trouble... knock on wood.)
za'atar pizza with dukkah labneh and purple onions
makes 3 individual pizzas
when your dough has an hour left in its second rising, place your pizza stone or baking steel (my new toy!) in your oven and heat it to 500. slice up the onion and heat it over low heat in a little olive oil so it slowly gets soft and caramelized. place the labneh in a bowl and mix it with the lemon juice.
when your dough is done rising, flatten it on a floured surface and brush it with olive oil. coat the thing in za'atar (like, a ton of za'atar) and stick it in the oven for 6-10 minutes.
immediately spread the thing with labneh and top it with some onions, a giant pinch or three of dukkah, a drizzle of olive oil, some black pepper and radishes, if using.
...speaking of dukkah, i think i'll best be having some with avocado next
i've long had a dream to make piñatas in the shapes of controversial political figures, but i think this taco piñata would be a good first one to try
that pretty blue towel in the above pictures is a naturally dyed beauty from maggie!
eggboy asked me the other day why i never make pancakes and i almost bit his head off because his gluten freeness is the reason but with these i have no excuse.
