Welcome to the recipe for open pizza pockets revisited: cabanossi & ham or vegetarian. You might feel like this is a familiar picture; it's almost as if you may even recognise this recipe. If you feel that way, you're right. Indeed, this is a remake of a previous recipe, but with slightly different ingredients. I just had to share it. I realised that it might help to show you that I really do mean it when I say that many of the recipes here are customisable according to your needs.
Although it's nice that many aspects of the recipes here at Help Me Cook are customisable, I'd like for you to know that when I say that - I really mean it. It isn't just fluff; I actually cook these recipes time and time again. I cook them my way, and you can use them to cook your way. This recipe isn't simply a repeat. It attempts to showcase the same principles, but with new flavours.
I've also since made a completely vegetarian version of these, as I had no ham or anything on hand and needed to use up two of my remaining shells. The vegetarian version went down really well too. All you need to do in order to make this dish into its vegetarian brother is not put in any ham and supplement with whatever vegetables you like instead.
- 4 Soft taco shells, stand-up ones or any edible open food basket you have access to; I used these ones again
- 1-2 cabanossi sticks
- 1 small packet of ham (250-400g is just fine, depending on how hammy you would like this)
- one red capsicum
- 1 finely chopped onion, red or brown
- Any fresh mushrooms; this time I used a smaller variety of mixed mushrooms
- pizza base sauce
- light cheese, grated
- Preheat oven to 220 or so degrees Celsius
- Chop all ingredients and mix together, including a small amount of the light cheese
- Add pepper and sauce
- Place into baskets
- Bake for around 15-20 mins, until cheese inside mixture has melted or appears cooked
- Melt some additional cheese on top
- Enjoy while hot 🙂
