Ratatouille Pizza

It is warm again today! The high is 68F (20C)! I hope this weather lasts...

Have you seen “Ratatouille"? It is a movie released in June, 2007. Last summer, there was a contest related to this movie and my "Ratatouille Pizza" won the Second Prize! I will translate the recipe since it is fun for your party ;)

Ratatouille Pizza

25cm (10inch) pizza dough
sliced cheese
red bell pepper rings

thin strips of green bell pepper

1. Dice eggplant, zucchini, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and onion. Soak the diced eggplant in water to remove the oxalic acid and drain.

2. In a pan, heat 1 tbsp. olive oil, add the diced onion and dried bay leaf, stir until onion softens. Add diced eggplant, zucchini, green bell pepper, and red bell pepper, cook over medium heat.

3. Add another tbsp. olive oil, stir well. Add diced tomato can, crushed garlic, and salt, stir to combine. Then cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4. Uncover and cook until the liquid evaporates, season with salt if needed.

5. Spread 4. on the pizza dough.

6. Cover 5. with sliced cheese. Place in the oven at 400F (200C) and cook until cheese softens and crust is golden on bottom.

7. Draw Remy's face with black olive slices, red bell pepper rings, and thin strips of green bell pepper.
