Lemongrass-Chicken Pizza with Sweet Potatoes & Onion Marmalade

Branden HATED this.  I kind of set him up though with this pizza.  I thought maybe if I re-purposed this dip that he didn’t exactly love (although I really did) that maybe he wouldn’t notice and I wouldn’t be wasting food.  Ha.  At this point in our marriage, I should know better.  With the first bite…he noticed.

Oh well, he went out of town the next day and I continued to eat the leftovers over the next two days…and I enjoyed it.  Well, I enjoyed it for the most part and here’s why.  The one crappy part about this pizza is the fact that I made homemade crust because I like homemade crust.  FAIL.  It was too cold and the slow rise in the fridge overnight was a complete joke.  I mean, I should’ve just left the yeast out because it would’ve turned out the exact same.  Naaaaaasty.

Other than the crust fiasco and a fail in the “trick-the-husband” department, this pizza had great fresh flavors (and used up a bunch of stuff I had lft in the fridge!).

Enjoy!

  • 1 fresh pizza crust
  • 1 c. lemongrass creme fraiche
  • Red onion jam (recipe follows)
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken, grilled and chopped
  • 2 c. sweet potato, diced and roasted
  • 1/2 c. finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 c. fresh cilantro, chopped

Preheat oven to 375º.  Prebake crust for 10 minutes on pizza stone.

Top crust with remaining ingredients in that order through the cheese.  Bake for additional 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted and toppings are hot.  Remove from oven and top with fresh cilantro.

Red Onion Jam

Recipe from Brian Boitano

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons water

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook until soft and translucent about 10 to 15 minutes. Add the sugar, red wine vinegar and 3 tablespoons water and cook until the liquid is reduced completely and the onions are caramelized, about 10 minutes.

  1. That’s so pretty. Lemongrass is one of my favourite ingredients, so the more you cook with it the happier I’ll be! Bare that in mind :D

  2. Oh no, I hate when Katherine hates something. It looks really good though.
