Speaking of Mediterranean and carbs, let’s take a look at pizza, another oven deliciousness that comes to mind.
Despite both being dough-based, pizza and bread’s differences lay in how they’re made. But when it comes to food waste and reusing ingredients, making pizza out of leftover bread can be a delicious and inspired foodie challenge.
First, place parchment paper in a baking sheet and line slices of baguette or regular bread (corners cut) on the tray, face down. Repeat the process and place more bread until the sheet is entirely covered.
Next, pour your preferred pizza sauce to cover the bread and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes to create delicious, leftover saving pizza crusts.
After they’re baked, top with other main ingredients or leftovers before baking for a final time.
But what if we wanted to use an entirely different ingredient to make the pizza dough?
Bread is a more traditional alternative to regular pizza dough. Yet taking it further is entirely possible. Vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli are delicious and healthy alternatives for making a pizza crust.
First, clean and separate the cauliflower into florets. Then after a few minutes of microwave cooking, transfer to cheesecloth to cool so you can squeeze the juices out of it. After squeezing out the juice, mix it with spices and cheese to form a pizza dough consistency. You can also try broccoli or zucchinis as an alternative base for pizza doughs.
