Bulgarian Pizza Recipe
750 gr. store-bought pizza dough, or make your own pizza dough;
200 gr. lutenitsa (vegetable spread, often called ajvar in other contries);
250 gr. kashkaval (good melting cheese from sheep's or cow's milk), grated;
100 gr. thinly sliced lukanka (dried Bulgarian soudjouk);
200 gr. fried, deboned chicken wings;
100 home-cooked fries;
100 gr. crumbled feta cheese;
1 tsp. dried and crumbled summer savory;
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil;
2 garlic cloves, crushed;
1 teaspoon salt and black pepper to taste.
This pizza is made almost entirely with traditional Bulgarian products. The food culture of the Bulgarians has changed a lot in the last 10 years, and pizza became popular, but not without some local twist.
1. Mix the lutenitsa, summer savory, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper together and set aside.
2. Stretch the pizza dough and place it in a 15 x 18-inch square baking pan, that has been greased with a little bit of oil.
3. Evenly apply the rest of the ingredients starting with the lutenitsa mix. Bake the pizza in a preheated oven at high temperature for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is nicely melted and bubbly. Let the baked pizza stand for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
