FAKE SWEETS! And we're not talking about jewelry here. Today I am going to share one of those recipes that isn't even really a recipe - Pizza Cones
Like any pizza recipe, you can put whatever you want on it, but it makes me feel special to write this up as a recipe. It is really just a different method of making
I came up with this idea after getting a pizza cone at Taipei Zoo last year. It is a handy way to have pizza you can carry around with you. Using a thinner skin makes an interesting crispy texture and the tomato paste prevents as much sogginess.
Start with a crepe skin or tortilla (I added some onions on it)
Add 3Tbs of tomato paste
Tomato paste work better than tomato sauce because it does not slide around and get as messy. Also the flavor is stronger, so you can use less!
Add toppings (I used enoki mushroom, onion, smoked salmon, and cheese)
The enoki mushroom imitated the cheese texture, so I did not add as much cheese, making this pizza healthier!
You can either cut and eat it like pizza
OR you can roll it up into a cone
Tuck in the bottom a little bit (fold up the end while rolling) like a burrito to prevent fall-out in case you did not manage to make a perfect cone ^^;
This can be made in advance, pulled out of the fridge and toasted prior to eating. You only need a napkin to wrap around the cone and wipe your hands and mouth with. Less mess, less cleaning, more yum!
I have thought of making these and rolling them like crepes to bring to a picnic. Tasty, customizable for different tastes, and minimal mess. It would require a larger oven to make many though!
