Coconut Coleslaw

Coconut Coleslaw

I made this recipe to go alongside my meat feast pizza. It is a little bit different than your typical coleslaw. I created when having leftover Tzatziki but have changed it a little to make it better. I took out the lemon juice and the cucumber and hey presto – what I think is this perfect coleslaw. I love the minty, garlicky, coconutty yoghurt with the raw onion, cabbage and carrot. They just sit together perfectly.

Ingredients

Half red cabbage

Half Onion

1 Whole carrot

1 tub of natural yoghurt

1 packet of desiccated coconut ( You can buy yoghurt with the coconut already incorporated)

1 tsp dried mint

1 tsp dried dill

1 tsp dried parsley

1 tsp dried oregano

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp honey

1 tsp garlic granules

Method

  1. It’s really simple – put the yoghurt, honey, herbs and coconut in a bowl and mix until fully incorporated. Slice and grate the carrot, onion and cabbage. Combine them all together and you have the perfect accompaniment to pizza, salad or sandwich.

Homemade Meat feast Pizza

Meat Feast Pizza Recipe

This is my go to recipe for pizza dough. It is tried and tested, and it’s superb. My kids favourite pizza is a meat feast from dominoes. This is far cheaper and much more fun, I let the kids help out and we have it on a saturday night watching Strictly Come Dancing. For this occasion I made some coconut coleslaw which helps cut through all the meat and cheese. It’s the perfect pairing in my opinion.

Ingredients (Makes 2 x 12 inch pizzas)

300g Strong White Bread Flour (You can get 1.5kg for less than a £1)

200ml of warm water (I just combine half boiling and half cold water)

2 Tbsp Rapeseed Oil (You can use olive oil if you prefer)

10g Sea Salt

1 Tbsp of Sugar

1 Sachet of Fast Acting Yeast

Toppings

2 pork sausages (empty the meat from the sausage, season with oregano or spices and roll into small balls)

Serrano Ham

1 cooked chicken breast

16 slices pepperoni

150g grated mozzarella

Extras – Coconut Coleslaw See full recipe and method here

Half red cabbage

Half Onion

1 Whole carrot

1 tub of natural yoghurt

1 packet of desiccated coconut ( You can buy yoghurt with the coconut already incorporated)

1 tsp dried mint

1 tsp dried dill

1 tsp dried parsley

1 tsp dried oregano

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp honey

1 tsp garlic granules

Method

  1. Combine flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Mix well, but be careful not to put the salt directly onto the yeast. I put the yeast in first, mix and then add the salt.
  2. Add the liquids and mix and knead until they combine to form a smooth, elastic dough.
  3. Rest in the mixing bowl for 30 mins. Make sure it is covered with food wrap or a tea towel.
  4. Use some flour to dust a clean work surface. Scrape out the dough with a plastic spatula. You can use your hands if you want. You now need to knead your dough for about 15-20mins.
  5. Place back into the mixing bowl to rest for 1 hour. Preheat your oven to 220C (200 for fan assisted), Gas mark 7 or 425 F.
  6. Knock out the dough by flattening hit out with your palms and then use your fingers to poke dimples in the dough.
  7. Dust a clean work top with flour. Cut dough into two halves and use a rolling pin to stretch out the dough.
  8. Dust a round pizza tray with flour and place your dough on tray and fold the edges to make your crust. Use a fork and poke the pizza before adding the tomato base and cheese. 
  9. Add the pizza toppings. Cook for 15-20mins, Hey presto, you have a pizza that’s far better than a shop bought pizza. I would say it rivals any takeout or restaurant pizza
