MY INSPIRATION FOR SALAMI PIZZA
A couple of years ago I went to New York City with my aunt to visit my cousin and to go to a Broadway show. After the show, he took us to this restaurant that had pizza on the menu. All of the selections sounded delicious. But, the one that really caught my eye was a pizza topped with smoked sausage, chili oil, and honey drizzle.
The salami pizza I ate that evening had a nice mix of smoky meat and garlic flavors. The drizzle of honey and chili oil was absolutely delicious. I have thought about that pizza many times and always knew I would one day recreate it at home.
THE BEST QUALITY INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
We are huge fans of salami and pepperoni. As a matter of fact, I have to hide my purchases from Grumpy whenever I buy something I intend to use in a recipe. If I don’t, I may go to the fridge only to find out I don’t have enough!
I made a trip to Price Chopper to buy some high-quality dry sausage for my recipe. I wanted to recreate the salami pizza recipe. The difference was, I would make a keto pizza instead. I come home with a few packages of Margherita Hard Salami as well as their pepperoni slices. The Salami Pizza was going to include a side cheese and pepperoni spread!
I brought home extras of the Margherita Hard Salami and Pepperoni because it is perfect for snacking and entertaining, as well as incorporating into my everyday recipes. There are many nights when our evening meal is just a snack with meat and cheese!
HOW I MADE A PIZZA CRUST WITH JUST EGG AND CHEESE!
If you’re following a low carb diet, then I’m pretty sure you have seen the new chaffle sensation. What’s a chaffle? It’s just egg and shredded cheese combined and then cooked in a mini waffle iron. There is no almond flour or coconut flour in the recipe. People are making everything from chaffle sandwiches to keto pizza chaffle recipes.
I started thinking if people are making a chaffle pizza in a waffle maker to cook, I wonder how it would work to just bake it in the oven? So, I gave it a try, and instead of making a chaffle, I spread the entire crust layer onto parchment paper and baked it!
MAKE THIS SALAMI PIZZA YOUR WAY!
- If your not keto, make a pizza dough recipe and top it with the same toppings! Feel free to use regular honey or syrup for the drizzle and add a little pineapple for another sweet contrast.
- Remove the Italian Seasoning in the cheese and egg dough and give it a different flavor. Try cajun or garlic and onion powder to change it up a little.
- Top it with both Margherita Hard Salami and Pepperoni!
- Leave off the pizza sauce and instead, use a homemade salsa (low carb).
- Go ahead and make cheese waffles instead of a full-sized pizza crust and set up a chaffle bar where your family can make their own mini salami pizzas!
- Leave out the spicy flavors by omitting the chili oil and jalapeno and top it with Margherita Hard Salami, mushrooms, and olives.
- Or, top it with both hard salami and pepperoni for an extra meaty pizza recipe!
