Parmigiano Reggiano

Parmigiano Reggiano has long been a staple in Italian cuisine. Also known in English as parmesan cheese, this delicacy is used in several mouthwatering dishes and entrees. This includes melanzane alla parmigiana, along with lasagne – and as a topping for pizzas, pasta, and other Italian favorites. Like other Italian hard cheeses, parmesan is carefully manufactured to preserve its natural taste and texture. In fact, most parmesan cheese wheels have been aged for minimum 12 months and up to 36 months!

Recipe: Freestyle Broccoli & Tomato pastry Pizza

IMG_5370.PNGIt may not be the quickest pizza recipe, but is quite simple. It didn’t take me more than half an hour, I can tell you.

This is what I do when I’m hungry and, either don’t have too much in my fridge but leftovers or my time is not much. I make a pizza, but not from scratch and not with pizza dough but store-bought puff pastry. This time I blanched some broccoli and smashed them a bit to mix them with the first cheese I found (gouda most of the times), seasoned with salt and pepper and poured on the pastry which I had previously put inside of the oven at 200ºC punching with a fork a frame 1 inch away of the edge. And to finish I added some date tomatoes halved and seasoned with olive oil. And in 20 minutes is ready, puffed and golden. Love it!
