crock-pot pizza

Serves 2-4

what you need

  • Foil
  • Olive oil
  • 1 packet of pizza base mix (150g)
  • 100ml passata
  • 100-200g grated Mozzarella
  • 2-3 tbsp grated Parmesan
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Toppings of your choice

method

  1.   Make foil handles to easily remove the cooked pizza: Tear off 2 x 20 x 3-inch strips of heavy foil or use regular foil folded to double thickness. Place inside the removable Crock-Pot bowl crossing over in the centre and grease with a little oil.
  2.   Make up the dough according to packet instructions. Flatten and stretch slightly to cover the base of the removable bowl and place inside.
  3.   Cover and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, from 10-30 minutes.
  4.   Remove air by pressing the dough down and about 2-3cm up the sides to form a crust.
  5.   Spread the passata evenly over the base and cover with your choice of toppings and grated cheese.
  6.   Repeat with more toppings and cheeses, and sprinkle over the oregano.
  7.   Place a tea towel over the top of the Crock-Pot, this will help keep the condensation from dripping onto the pizza whilst cooking, and cover with the lid.
  8.   Cook on High for 3 hours until the base is golden brown.

what you need

  • 1.5kg - 2kg pork shoulder
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chipotle paste
  • Zest and juice of 2 limes
  • Zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • Corn taco shells
  • Small soft tortilla wraps
  • Coriander rice
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream
  • Chopped coriander
  • Jalapenos

method

  1.   Remove the skin from the pork and slash the meat on both sides.
  2.   Prepare the marinade by mixing the garlic, cumin, chipotle paste, lime zest and juice, orange zest and juice, olive oil and seasoning. Rub into the meat and cover, refrigerate overnight before cooking.
  3.   Place the meat and the marinade into your removable Crock-Pot bowl. Cover with the lid and cook on Low for 6-7 hours or High for 5-6 hours.
  4.   Remove the meat from the Crock-Pot bowl using a slotted spoon.
  5.  Allow to cool slightly before shredding with 2 forks. Place the pork onto a baking sheet and crisp in the oven for approximately 10 minutes.
  6. To assemble the Tacos

  7.   Place a spoonful of the sour cream onto a soft tortilla and add a corn taco shell onto the centre of the wrap, this makes them easier to eat.
  8.   Add the crispy pork, a spoonful of coriander rice, salsa, sour cream and a sprinkle of fresh coriander leaves and jalapenos.
  9.   Fold round the ingredients and enjoy.
