Super Thin Crust Pizza (Quesa-Pizza)

First, I want to say I can’t take credit for this idea. Recently I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube chef videos and I came across the funny/ talented You Suck At Cooking. When I want something ridiculous that also seconds as a tutorial for good food his channel is where I go. Exactly a week ago he posted a video called Tortilla Pizza, which I instantly wanted to try. I love tortillas and I love pizza, so combining the two was too incredible to pass up. This is my favourite food at the moment. Although it isn’t healthy, the idea of it makes my mouth water.

Below you’ll find my written instructions and at the bottom you’ll find his video tutorial. I suggest watching the video for the humour and visual instructions. All right, let’s get cooking!

Prep: 5 mins                Cook time: 10 mins               Total time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

Tortillas

Pizza Sauce (I used RAGÚ Original)

Mozzarella Cheese

Toppings of your Choice

**I did a plain cheese and a ground beef, sour cream, sweet corn, black bean pizza. Closest I could get to a quesadilla on a pizza. 🙂

Items you’ll need:

Oven

Knife

Cheese grater

Tinfoil

Baking Sheet

Instructions:

Turn oven to 350 F (176 C). Lay tinfoil on baking sheet. Put tortilla on tinfoil and spread sauce evenly on top. Shred and sprinkle cheese on top of sauce, add toppings, and then add another thin layer of cheese. Put in oven for 10 mins.

When done transfer to plate, cut into desired pieces and serve.

 

I Want Seconds – Shepard’s Pie Recipe

 

One of the popular dishes in my house is Shepard’s Pie. This dish is not only easy to make but leaves you wanting seconds (sometimes thirds) because it just is the perfect comfort food. Combining mashed potatoes, meats, and veggies – this meal has all that you need for a growing family or even a group get-together.

Prep: 1 hr                Cook time: 15-20 mins               Total time: 1 hr 15-20 mins

Ingredients:

6 Potatoes

1 lb ground beef (chicken or pork can be a substitute)

1 small white onion

1 can of peas

1 can of creamed corn

1 1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tbsp butter

1/2 cup milk

 

Items you’ll need:

Cooking pot

Frying pan

Peeler

Potato masher

Knife

Chopping board

Baking Dish

Measuring spoons/cups

Can opener

Oven

Instructions:

Mashed Potato Topping

Peel 6 potatoes, dice them into equal sized cubes, put them into a pot and fill until covered with water. Bring water to a boil and let simmer until tender enough to break apart with a fork with little pressure. Drain water, add 1 tbsp of butter and 1/2 milk to potatoes. Mash potatoes until smooth.

Meaty Middle

Chop small white onion and add to frying pan. Add oil or water to help onions cook. When onions are translucent (see-through) add 1 lb of ground beef (or meat of choice) and 1 1/2 tsp black pepper to frying pan. Cook until browned. Drain liquid from the meat and set aside.

Put it all together now

Set oven to 350 F (176 C). While oven is heating up take your baking dish and line the bottom with your cooked meat/onion mixture. When bottom is evened out add half a can of creamed corn making sure to spread it evenly. Drain and add the can of peas before adding the rest of the cream corn on top. The cream corn acts like glue keeping the layers together. Finally add the mashed potato layer to the top, smoothing it out for a nice smooth finish.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins or until all layers are heated. Serve and enjoy.

Optional: Spread butter on the top of the pie and broil until top is golden brown.

 

 

 

Sweet Potato Soup

When winter creeps in I can’t help but feel like I have to make soup. Already I shared with you my Mother Knows Best Chicken Soup last year, so this year I will share with you another popular soup I make, which is my Sweet Potato Soup. I like making this soup with sweet potatoes because I find it sweeter but you can also replace the sweet potatoes with 2 small baking pumpkins if you aren’t a person who likes sweet potatoes.

Anyways, I hope this recipe helps to keep you warm this winter and if you have any questions just ask in the comment section down below.
