A Taste of Yellow

Barbara at Winos and Foodies is sponsoring her annual Taste of Yellow blogging event in honor of Livestrong Day on Tuesday, May 13th. On that day, she will be posting a wrap-up of all of her Taste of Yellow entries from blogs all over the world. Livestrong Day is a wonderful series of events sponsored by the Lance Armstrong Foundation to bring awareness to cancer research and to show support for all those affected by cancer.

Here is my entry:

A Taste Of Yellow Chicken Curry Pizza (serves 3)

1 recipe pizza dough
1 tbl. olive oil
1 large yellow onion, sliced thinly
½ tsp. kosher salt
4 large white mushrooms, sliced
1 yellow squash, cut into thin spears
1 yellow pepper, cut into thin strips
2 boneless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. curry powder
½ tsp. turmeric
4 tbls. stock
2 tbls. golden raisins
1 tsp. apricot jam

Preheat oven to 475 deg F.

Heat olive oil in large heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onions and salt. When you hear a sizzle, stir one more time and cover the pot. Turn heat to low. Leave for at least 10 minutes to sweat (15 is better) or until onions are completely soft.

Raise heat to medium high. Add mushrooms, stir well and let brown for 2 minutes. Stir in yellow squash and cook for another 2 minutes. Add yellow peppers. Stir well. Stir in chicken and cook for 2 minutes.

Stir in cumin, curry powder and turmeric. Stir over lowest heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat for another 4 minutes or until chicken is done. The mixture should be moist. If necessary, raise heat to get rid of excess liquid.

Line baking sheet with foil or use pizza screen. Spray with Pam. Roll out pizza dough to fit pan. Spoon chicken curry mixture over, leaving an inch border of plain dough all around.

Cook for 15 to 18 minutes until crust is crispy.

Mmm...that sounds good. I love curry. I've never used it on pizza before. Did you put raisins in it? I can't remember.
Yep, you did.
You're so clever!

That looks and sounds so good- and I'm not a fan of curry!! What a great event to participate in! :)

I have just stumbled upon your blog. I love the clean design and fantastic photos. I am a blogger myself and always thought that design was key and you have certainly captured that! There are so many food blogs out there these days and being different to all the others is key. I have just started which is a website for chefs, foodies and food bloggers to hand out, share recipes, photos and videos. When i was blogging I always thought i should be getting more traffic as my blog was getting lost in the masses of stuff out there so my new site is aimed at giving food bloggers and chefs a bigger platform! Hope you enjoy it and keep up the good writing and design here! I have now bookmarked you so will be regular reader, Cheers!

You need to open up your own pizza shop. You always make some good looking pizzas.

I saw George Carlin Saturday night and he began his routine with a rather - um - off color Lance Armstrong tirade. This brings a very nice balance to my weekend!

I never used curry on pizza before, either. Sounds interesting, thanks! Never know until you try, right?

Sue said...

I'm waiting for you to make a chicken curry muffin.

Thanks, Jenn.

Hi Barbara,
I'm looking forward to your roundup.

Hey Private Chef,
Welcome! Thanks for the nice comments.

You can thank Blogger for my blog design. I just like to add lots of stuff, especially in the sidebar, to engage my readers.

Thanks for the pizza remarks.

I have to say I have never heard a Lance Armstrong joke. I lead such a sheltered life.

Hi jj,
Welcome! You have to try it.
