Dr. Tae Yun Kim not only emphasizes healthy foods, but also the importance of being creative when we cook.
Can you imagine eating the same food every day? Sure, when you don’t have options and are starving, we’ll do anything for a crust of bread. But in today’s world, creativity helps to encourage making the right food choices.
After enjoying many versions of hot soup lately, it was time for some “sink in your teeth” food, and pizza is an almost universally liked food for all ages.
Here is the secret: you don’t really need a recipe, just some ideas.
Dr. Tae Yun Kim has made some astonishing creations, and here is a picture of my try to re-create – it was very good, but not anywhere near what Dr. Kim did!
Tip # 1: you can take pretty much any yeast dough as pizza dough. This goes for gluten-free as well as gluten full. If it’s too sticky and wet, just use a little flour on your hands and pat directly onto a well-greased pizza pan or baking sheet. Pre-baking also helps when the dough is sticky.
Tip # 2: use either any tomato sauce you have on hand, or any pesto, as a layer between dough and toppings.
Tip # 3: anything goes as topping! I mean, you know you shouldn’t pour soup on it, but seriously, any meat, any veggies, in any combination will work well, depending on your taste buds.
Tip #4: if you are adding cheese, bake without the cheese first and add it only about 5 minutes before it’s done, so you won’t scorch the cheese.
Tip #5: I bake pizza around 400 degrees and not at the higher ones you might find in recipes – basically, know your oven and bake at higher heat than you would bread, but not so hot it burns before it’s done. In my oven, that’s about 400 degrees.
Most important tip: Dig in and enjoy! 🙂
