My mother made us dinner today, that hasn't happened in a long long time. It pretty much was the food I cook for her every week, so it was great! Thanks mom! Now that the talk is over I can get back to the kitchen!
Last night I went to my friends Sarah's new home, she moved back to Utah from San Antonio. She asked everyone to bring something, and I brought Dominoes pizza ( something store bought, a cardinal sin, I know! It was the talk! All the pressure! I am so ashamed). Sarah however impressed me with this.
It was a pita pizza with an artichoke spread, bell peppers, feta cheese and chicken. So this is her recipe, and I hope to post many more of her recipes in the future. I am going to call it Pita Pizza with Peppers and Artichoke Tapenade because I didn't write down what she called it, but I'm sure the name wasn't as fancy, and it needs a fancy name.
1 small red pepper thinly sliced
1 orange pepper thinly sliced
cooked diced chicken
artichoke tapenade (recipe follows)
In a food processor combine, 2 cloves garlic minced, 1/4 c mayonnaise, 1 t olive oil, 3/4 can artichoke hearts, 1/4t crushed red pepper, 1/8 t pepper, ( no salt called in the recipe Sarah? what's the dealio?) Combine till it becomes a paste.
Putting together the pizza's
Spread the pitas with the tapenade (sarah what kind of pita did you use?)
top with the peppers
sprinkle with a tiny bit dried thyme.
Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 7-10 minutes (ok that is a total guess, not so good at writing down recipes, sarah?)
note: so I just did spell check and it claims that tapenade is not a word! I can say it is indeed a word because I watch me some serious food network, I know.
