Pizza del cavolo – Cabbage Pizza

Today here in Piedmont it hardly rains and it’s quite chilly…. I’d like to eat this pizza.

I found this recipe in an italian food program, years ago. There was a big man, a fantastic baker from Rome, that really loves all kind of bread/focaccia/pizza and similar doughs. He’s so nice and he loves to eat! Next time in Rome, I’ll surely go to his pizzeria.

This is a different pizza. But fantastic. Very tasty and satisfying.You need: flour, brewer’s yeast, extra virgin olive oil, salt. Garlic, hot pepper. And some type of cabbage: cauliflower, broccoli, and other cabbage you choose (in all, 4 type it’s the ideal).

First step, you should have the pizza dough. I suggest different solutions:

a. to make it by hand

b. to let your breadmaker make it for you (if you have one)

c. to buy the dough at the bakery

d. to buy it at the supermarket.

Mine it’s b.

Second step: boil the cabbages in water and cook each variety in different frying pans with extra virgin olive oil, some garlic, a bit of hot pepper and salt. At the end, throw away garlic and hot pepper (if you can find them).

Stretch the dough and spread the different cabbages over it. Then, roll up your creation. Now, you can slice the roll and put the slices over an oven dish covered with baking paper. Cook in the oven at 180° C for 20-25 minutes.

Fabulous! Healthy, balanced, vegetarian, and not at all the usual boiled cabbage!
