Cabbage Pizza

Sounds disgusting, right?

NO! Make it, now! It has to be the cheapest, quickest, most delicious thing I have stumbled upon in a long time. Danny and Isaac loved it. I think Chris would have liked it, were he home to try it. Unfortunately, I'll probably eat it all tonight.

This recipe is found at 101 Cookbooks, one of my most favorite food blogs. She actually calls the recipe Japanese Pizza, but the kids were calling it cabbage pizza. It's nothing like pizza, really a sort of cabbage fritatta. Apparently it's big in Japan.

I re-found this recipe about a week ago, and have been obsessed with it since (this happens to me a lot--I can't decide if it's totally unhealthy that I get obsessed by food, or a good sign that I just love to cook...). I can't believe it took me this long to make it, but I've been lazy about cooking and tired at night, so it's gone by the wayside.

I didn't have a leek to use in the cabbage mix, so I chopped up half of a small onion and tossed it in. I also cooked it in mostly bacon grease, with a little olive oil thrown in. I was kind of freaked out about flipping it, but Heidi's directions are ingenious; mine looked just as pretty as hers. Gah, if only I wouldn't have been so starving and would have stopped for two seconds to take a picture :(

I also didn't have a green onion or slivered almonds, her suggestions for a garnish. I used toasted pine nuts and goat cheese on my first slice, which was delish. On my second slice, I slathered it in Mae Ploy sweet chili sauce; also yummy (though not as healthy). And now, every time I go back in to the kitchen, I just keep eating slivers of it plain. So, so good.


  1. Michelle, My computer is too slow to click on the link, but could this be similar okonomiyaki (sp?)? I had this in Japan and LOVED it. I've even made it at home, but forgot all about it. Loved it - but "cabbage pizza" does sound gross to me. LOL!

  2. Christa, that's exactly what it is! But yeah, I was lazy and didn't feel like opening the link back up to look at the Japanese word. I almost posted something in the blog about you probably knowing what it was!
