My friends and I decided to make a great Memphis Pizza.
We knew we wanted to do it right, and we needed the help.
We had a few ingredients, but we didn’t want to spend a lot of money to get them.
We just wanted to make it fun and simple.
This Memphis Pizza recipe is just the tip of the iceberg.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
You will need: 1 1/2 cups (about 2 cups) water 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling 1/4 cup (1 cup) butter, plus a tablespoon for brushing the crust 2 large eggs 1/3 cup (2 cups) brown sugar, plus 2 teaspoons 1/8 teaspoon salt 3/4 teaspoon pepper 1/16 teaspoon ground cloves 3 tablespoons sour cream 3 tablespoons vinegar 1 tablespoon dried oregano 1/5 teaspoon ground cinnamon 3 tablespoons chopped walnuts Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix together 1 1 (16-ounce) package of salted macaroni and 1 tablespoon of salt.
Beat together the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and the 1/6 cup butter.
Add the eggs, brown sugar and salt, and stir until combined.
Add 3/8 cup of sour cream and vinegar and stir to combine.
Add in the flour and stir.
In the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish, add a slice of the macarono and spread it with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sour Cream.
Spread the remaining macarona crust on top of it and sprinkle with the sour cream.
Repeat with the other 2 slices of macaronoplus.
Top with 1 cup of sliced fresh walnuts, and a little of the crust.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then brush the top with some of the remaining sour cream to crisp up the crust and to help it hold up.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
Recipe Notes *To make the crust, use 1/7 cup (3 cups) butter and 1/9 cup (4 tablespoons) heavy cream.
*You could also use 1 teaspoon salt, or a teaspoon of ground cloves, or any other spice you like.
*If you’re not sure about using your macarones, ask your butcher for instructions.
*Recipe adapted from Five Minute Pizza by FourFourFourTwo.
This recipe is for 1/1 cup (8 ounces) pizza crust.
If you want a thicker crust, like a 3-inch or 4-inch crust, you can use a larger (or smaller) pizza pan.
I used my Kitchenaid 16-ounce 9-inch pizza pan, which had an 8-inch cooking grate and a 1/24-inch wide center opening.
You can make the same crust by making a smaller pizza pan or using a 1-inch square pizza pan (or an 11-inch round pan).
If you’re making the crust in a 9-by-9-inch pie pan, be sure to use the center of the pie pan and bottom.
*This recipe makes enough for 6 people.
