Yaki-Mandu Pizza

After having tons of leftover yakimandu from last nights dinner, Jeremy suggested a yakimandu pizza. I didnt try it but he said it was very good. For the sauce I just made a simple bechamel sauce. I used a premade personal pizza crust so it was really quick to make.  When this was done, Jeremy drizzled a little soy sauce over the top of the pizza.

Bechamel sauce

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp flour

1 cup milk

1 cup parmigiano reggiano

Melt butter in saucepan over med heat. Whisk in flour and let it cook out 1 min. Whisk in milk until slightly thick. Stir in parmigiano reggiano.

To assemble the pizza:

Drizzle about a tbsp of evoo on premade personal pizza crust.  Spoon on some bechamel sauce. Top with about 1 1/2 cups leftover yakimandu. Top with mozzarella. Bake 10 mins at 425.

Margherita Pizza

I made my first true homemade pizza and it was awesome!! Homemade crust and homemade sauce!!!  Ill seriously never buy storebought again plus I just really like knowing exactly what is in my food! The toppings are simply sliced tomatoes, torn fresh basil, and shredded mozzarella !

This is the crust recipe I used but I added in a Tbsp of honey…Not sure why it has salt listed two times…Im guessing they meant sugar for one but whatever.

For the sauce I just used 1 can of tomato paste, a can of water (tomato paste can), 1 tbsp basil, 1 tbsp oregano, salt and peper, 1 tbsp honey, and 1 tbsp Evoo..Whish everything together until combined . Im not sure where I saw this recipe but if its you, let me know and Ill credit you!
