pizzas and wings

What goes hand in hand with Pizza is ofcourse Pasta. Now the thing is eventually one always gets tired of meat filled pizza and meat filled pasta. We are Indians afterall. So over the weekend, my husband decides Saturday afternoon he wants to play golf, clearly Saturdays aren't days for slogging in the kitchen neither do eat a whole hearty meal. But I got tired of the whole weeks meat-steak-chicken-fish-prawns menus. A hajj friend of mine bought a wood fire pizza oven for her patio (jealous much, yes even me), ofcourse it makes the most delish pizzas, but her ideas are endless with any gadget. Thanks for the inspiration!
Instead of Pasta I went Debonairs route and made wings from all my collected cut up chicken. Sometimes I find the wings of chicken is such a waste when making curries or kalyo as no one eats them. So nowadays I collect the wings and use it a one go for Spicy Sticky Wings

Carmelised Onion Sundried Tomato Pizza
1 pizza base (readymade or make your own - I bought mine)
1 red onion sliced finely lengthwise
few sundried tomoates chopped
few button mushrooms, sliced
green pepper, chopped
2 tbsp sweetcorn kernel
fresh basil leaves
fresh mozzarella cheese
pinch of salt
1 tbsp of red wine vinegar
pinch of sugar
olive oil and butter

saute onions in olive oil and butter combo, add the salt, sugar and vinegar, on LOW heat.
once done, it will nice and soft, spread out on the pizza base (I used a little tomato sauce first, baked a little and then topped with onions).
in the same pan, saute mushrooms and corn, cook water out till dry add the green pepper.
top the mushroom pepper and corn over the onions, and then evenly place over chopped sundried tomato.
finish off with fresh basil leaves and fresh mozzarella cheese, the ones that comes in the tub of water and you pull off pieces. if you cant find that, grated mozzarella is also fine. bake in oven of 180 degrees till cheese is melted and heated through.

Spicy Sticky Wings

about 6 chicken wings
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Portuguese Peri Peri sauce
Crushed Pepper
Robertson's Spicy Portuguese Seasoning
Chicken Spice
Salt to taste
Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Tomato Sauce
1 tbsp Mustard Sauce

Marinate chicken wings in the above for a few hours. Melt butter, cook the wings only, in some water. Then once water is dry out, place in a sheet pan and pour over the left over sauce and finish cooking in the oven of 180 degrees for about 20 mins.
