Cooking Class Recipes

This post is a little delayed, but essential non-the-less. I would thank all of those that came to our cooking class in July. It was my first time doing it and I am so appreciative to all of those that came, but the purpose of this post is to share with those who could not make it to class as well. Here are the dishes that I prepared and their corresponding recipes. Also a big thank-you to Missy Fagg for coming to class and for taking these wonderful pictures (she did a beautiful job like always).

Hot and Spicy Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb chicken, shredded
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 cup Onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheeseCrust
    • 1 cup cauliflower rice
    • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
    • 3 egg whites

How to make it: Preheat oven to 425. Heat cauliflower in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. Combine with the other ingredients. Pour onto a greased pizza sheet. Use hands to spread out evenly. Bake for 15 minutes or until slightly browned. Meanwhile shred chicken and toss with the mixture of hot sauce and butter. Once crust is done, layer this onto the crust, sprinkle onions over the top and layer with cheese. Place back in the oven and cook until the cheese is melted. Slice and serve.

*Note: for fun I’ve been making a blend of cauliflower rice with orange and white heads, then using a multi-blend cheese so that it is a ‘cheesy’ crust.
