    Boat Food - Lamb Roast and Yellow Tomato Pizza Bianco

    Not such a stunning sunset from Rakino... compared with the previous few nights...but OK.

    While the sun was setting, I cooked a delicious dinner for us.
    I had a little lamb rump in the freezer and still had plenty of vege in the fridge.
    First heat oven to 200C
    Then in an oven proof pan I sauteed
    In 1 tablespoon Olive oil
    1 onion peeled and sliced
    1 kumara peeled and sliced
    1 swede peeled and sliced
    Add one tomato sliced

    Season with S & P

    Cook till al dente
    Meanwhile
    Prepare about 8 brussel sprouts cut in half
    Season lamp rump with salt and freshly ground black pepper
    And in another pan sear the lamb on all sides

    Add Sprouts and Lamb to pan
    Into oven should take about 20 minutes
    Remove let Lamb rest about 5 minutes

    Serve sliced Lamb on bed of roast vege.

    Yum!

    Next day Pizza I thought

    I bought some yellow tomatoes
    Yeeess... OK but lacking in real tomato flavour
    In fact funnily enough when I glance at them I think Pineapple... then get a shock when I eat and then have a savoury taste.
    But enough about me
    A Pizza Bianco base I think
    In fact this is a Yellow Pizza with some browned onion, red bell pepper and a green chili confetti.
    Very nice for a change
    For the extra protein
    One side had some cold chicken pour moi
    And for my loved one smoked salmon

    I have a foolproof pizza dough, Have a look at this post all instructions there

    For the topping
    Sour cream

    The Confetti
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 onion sliced
    1 red pepper sliced1 green chili sliced
    Sea salt and pepper

    2 yellow tomatoes in thick slices
    Extra Virgin Olive oil
    Sea Salt and Freshly ground black pepper
    Mozzarella grated.
    Fresh Basil if you have some

    Caramelize  the sliced onion in olive oil
    Add red pepper and chili to pan
    Season
    Saute about 4 minutes
    Set aside


    Place the prepared dough in your pizza pan or just a baking sheet
    Spread the base with sour cream
    Sprinkle the confetti over the sour cream
    Place tomatoes on top
    Season S & P
    Sprinkle with Extra Virgin Olive oil

    Pop into a hot oven about 10 minutes to get those tomatoes started

    Take out and I placed the chicken on one side and smoked salmon on the other
    Smothered them with Grated cheese
    If you have basil, garnish
    Back into oven about 10- 15 minutes

    Excellent
