Potato Pesto Pizza..with a sucky picture..

My sincere apologies for the level of suck on this picture, but it was literally "take a picture before you inhale this"...and boy oh boy did I go to town on this pie!
If you are a pizza purist (red sauce, meat) you might want to skip on over this, or call your local delivery joint because this is not a traditional pizza...but it was an amazing pizza!


Potato Pesto Pizza

1/2 stick butter-softened
2 T granulated garlic
1/2 cup prepared pesto
1 large potato-baked and sliced into 1/4 inch slices
1 medium onion-thinly sliced
1 bag pizza blend cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 batch of pizza dough

Oven at 450.
Roll out your pizza dough-
combine butter and garlic into a paste and slather it onto the rolled out dough
then top with half of the pesto
add sliced potatoes
add sliced onions
top with cheeses
dot w/remaining pesto

Bake approx 20-25 or until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly.

Bulogi Korean Beef-take out/fake out at home!


Korean Beef (adapted from lizzy writes)

1/2 lb left over rump roast-cooked
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 T sesame oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 cloves garlic-chopped
1 t chopped ginger

Heat oil in large saucepan, add leftover roast and heat through, add brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger and cook approx 5 minutes. It gets gloriously thick and sticky b/c of the brown sugar. Serve over rice!
I sauteed up some mushrooms and onions in a separate pan and we had those with it as well.
I had planned on doing this with ground beef (and I intend on keeping it on our rotating menu)-but since I had the leftover roast, I didn't want to waste it...we were SO pleased with this dish! It was sweet, salty, and delicious!
