This month I wanted to cook something quick and easy that would use up some of the ingredients I already had in my cupboards. Fortunately, I came across this fantastic recipe for Miso Pizza on the Japan Centre website…
*NB. I have doubled the topping ingredients as there didn’t seem to be enough sauce in the original recipe, and I have also replaced chicken with Quorn chicken to make it vegetarian.
- pizza base
- Quorn chicken strips (or alternative vegetarian topping)
- 1 onion
- 400g melty cheese
- 2 tsp red miso paste
- 4 tbsp mayonnaise (classic Japanese pizza topping!)
- 2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
- 2 tsp soy sauce
In a bowl, mix the red miso paste, mayonnaise, sesame seeds and soy sauce.
Spread the miso sauce mixture on the pizza base.
Add the Quorn chicken strips and sliced onion.
Sprinkle with cheese.
Cook in the oven at 230C for 5 – 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and enjoy!
I have to say, this pizza was even more delicious than I hoped it would be! Miso makes an excellent pizza topping. 😀
I’ll be back in February with a new recipe. If you have any suggestions, or perhaps you would like me to try one of your recipes from a book or website, please leave a comment below or get in touch! All the recipes I try on this blog have some connection to Japan and, because I don’t eat meat, they need to be vegetarian or pescetarian. I’m particularly interested in helping to promote Japanese recipe books, so do let me know if you have one I might like!
