Yeah, a mochi pizza ! La mochizza ! You may wonder if I have turned into a wholesaler of mochi. Not really, but I surely have a big stock to of the white goodies… And well that’s really good.
A pizza whose crust is like that ! Crispy like a cracker and soft like a chewing gum, with a delicate flavor of grilled rice.
And that takes only 10 minutes to be into your mouth…
The recipe is simply to slice some block of mochi, put on some oiled pie tray, garnish like a pizza and bake 10 minutes under the broiler/grill at full heat. Take into account that the mochi doubles of volume when it cooks, so slice it thin.
The small cubes are also mochi, added after 5 minutes so they just become soft like melted cheese, not hardened yet.
This vegan version is made with lots of onions, a little green sweet chili, garlic, tomato paste, black pepper and later flavored with argan oil poured on top after baking.
Here is one with veggies (carrot, red sweet chili, tomato paste, onion, a little garlic) and shrimps. Olive oil, dry hot chili and kezuribushi (fish flakes) as flavoring.
That’s how the bake “dough” is. You have to eat it directly from the tray. And eat quickly because it’s so goood, and it has to be eaten hot. Later it deflates. Oh enough photos, anyway it’s night. Make yours someday.
