WEEK 15: Corned Beef and Cabbage Pizza

One of my favorite treats around St. Patrick's Day is a gorgeous corned beef.   Corned beef may not be consumed in Ireland but the Irish Americans sure love it and me of course (I'm only Irish one day of the year).

The easiest St. Patrick's Day feast includes corned beef, cabbage, carrots, and potatoes, all layered and cooked in the crock-pot for about 6 hours.  That's what was served last night and below is what we have done with some of the leftovers.  If you do crock-pot your cabbage put it in about 2 hours until the end time, otherwise you will end up with a soggy mess.

Please pair this pizza with an icy Guinness, or two, or three.

Cabbage and Corned Beef Pizza 

CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE PIZZA (SERVES 2)

CRUST

Use one third of pizza dough (enough for one medium pizza) + a pinch of caraway seeds, and sub 1-½ cups whole-wheat flour for the bread flour

TOPPINGS

  • cabbage - sautéed and finely chopped
  • corned beef - cooked, shredded
  • gouda cheese - gruyere, or swiss, or any glorious combination 

RUSSIAN DRESSING (MAKES ¾ CUPS)

  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon ketchup
  • 2 sweet pickles - finely chopped
  • 1 green onion - sliced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Preheat oven to 500°.  While the oven is heating shape your dough into the desired shape, adding as little flour as possible.  Poke several small holes in the crust with a fork to prevent bubbling.  Transfer pizza dough to whatever, pan, stone, etc you will be using for cooking.  Brush crust with a bit of extra-virgin olive oil, and cook without toppings for about 5 minutes.  Layer cabbage, corned beef, and top with cheese.  Cook for 7-9 minutes more.  While cooking mix all ingredients for Russian dressing together in a small dish.  Garnish pizza with Russian dressing and enjoy every bite.
