Want a fun Vegetarian Meal for kids? This healthy Red Cabbage Pizza recipe will please picky eaters. This can be made on a thin crust pizza or deep-dish
I have been having a hankering for pizza for weeks now. Specifically, I am having daily dreams of NY style pizza.
Unfortunately, I live in Florida and even the best “NY Style Pizza” eateries can’t replicate the NY slice.
It is not their fault. The secret to a great NYC pizza is in its water and the tomatoes.
NY/NJ tomatoes have a very specific sweetness that cannot be duplicated anywhere. Their cherry tomatoes are sweet and very tiny.
My theory is that I can never duplicate my favorite slice of NYC pizza, so, why bother trying? Instead, I went with a completely different style of pizza.
I feel like cabbage has been pigeon-holed for far too long! It seems that cabbage can only be “Team Coleslaw” or “Team Kimchi”.
It would be nice to see red cabbage in a variety of recipes. For starters, I think it would make a great falafal topping.
The main thing about this recipe is that the pizza should be baked in 2 rounds, since the red cabbage takes a while to cook. If you put all the red cabbage at once, the bottom layer remains uncooked.
I split the toppings into 2 equal portions. The first batch took about 20 minutes to complete and the second batch completed in 15 minutes.
I really wanted to go nuts with different kings of toppings. Here are some toppings that I really should have added to this recipe:
– Sun dried tomatoes
– Any Olive variety
Also, the real star of this pizza has to be my homemade pizza sauce recipe. It is loaded with garlic and has all fresh vegetables that were roasted into it.
Do you agree that NY style pizza cannot be duplicated anywhere in the world?
