Valentines day. I myself believe that Valentines day is a day of consumeristic rubbish, dreamt up by the big corporations to make us spend more/be guilted into spending more. This may be because I have never truly had a valentine (does getting drunk with my best friend count?) but I imagine for those in relationships, particularly fresh ones, it is a day preceded by angst, spending, guilt, and a bit more spending. That doesn't scream 'love' to me.
What does scream love, however, is Mexican pizza. When I finally trick someone into being my Valentine, Mexican pizza and a night on the couch watching Disney pixar films is all I want. Because srsly, if 'Valentines day' doesn't entail Mexican food and Disney movies, then I'm not interested. Also, insert miscellaneous comment about how love should be celebrated on every day of the year, etc etc.
2 1/2 cups millet flour
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup potato flour
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 sachet yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon psyllium husk
1 can of black beans
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 teaspoons Mexican spice mix (My recipe is in a previous post)
Plentiful grated cheese
Plentiful sour cream
Coriander and lime juice
1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, psyllium husk, and salt in a bowl. Preheat da oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
2. In another bowl, add the yeast, warm water, and sugar, and pop the bowl in a warm spot. The yeast should start to foam. After about 5-10 minutes it should be raring to go.
3. Pour the olive oil and yeast mixture into the flours, and mix thoroughly. Your dough should be sticky but generally able to be man handled. If not, add a bit more potato flour. Pop the bowl in a warm place for a minimum of 45 minutes, hopefully longer if you have it.
4. After the dough has had its time in the sun (hehe) divide it into four equal pieces. On a baking tray covered in baking paper, knead each piece into a reasonably thin pizza base size.
5. Pop the pizza bases in the oven for ten minutes to prove.
6. Topping time! Mix your tomato paste with your Mexican spices, and paint the town (or pizza) red. Next up is your black beans. Tomatoes; you can choose whether you would like them cooked or fresh. I lean towards fresh (ie add them to the pizza at the end) as I have had too many burnt lips at the hands of a cooked tomato. And I ain't waiting for a tomato to cool before I eat pizza.
7. Top with lots of cheese and return to the oven for at least ten minutes. You can flip it to grill if you like your cheese nice and browned. Top with tomato, avocado, and sour cream, and go to TOWN.
