In response to a couple of threads regarding frozen dough and hamburger as an ingredient, I used both to make a pie tonight.
The overall theme is Chili, as in served in a bowl and no beans are involved. I used a 1/2# of 97% fat free hamburger (of which I ended up using about half), various spices, onion and diced green chilies as ingredients and toppings.
Ground beef chili mix:
1/2# ground chuck 3% fat
1 tsp dice dried onions
3/4 tsp cumin
3/4 tsp smoked paprika
3/4 tsp Aleppo pepper flakes
3/4 tsp New Mexico green chili powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
That is pic 1
After mixing, it was not quite right (yes I tasted it raw), so I added:
1 tsp diced green chilis
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
Final mix is pic 2
The frozen doughball, Il Fiorno, was allowed 30 minutes to relax at room temp after thawing, and pressed out easily to 16". I used a cooked down sweet sauce and cheese blend from last weekend, and after adding chunks of the hamburger mix finished with red onion and green chilies, pic 3.
I baked it per instructions, mostly, 10 minutes at 450, then 1 minute under the broil element. I let it cool, then cut it and put it back on the elevated screen, pic 4.
I must say, the dough was not great, but it was pretty good. I think I abused it last time, and this time allowed it to work as designed. Pretty good, and I am not ashamed to say that the pizza was very good.
