can (11 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated thin pizza crust
clove garlic, finely chopped
teaspoon red pepper flakes
tablespoons very finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
tablespoon very finely chopped jalapeño chile
teaspoon fresh lime juice
cup thinly sliced English (hot house) cucumber
(1/2-oz each) frozen cooked meatballs without sauce (from 22-oz bag), thawed, halved
green onions, thinly sliced on the bias
tablespoon cilantro leaves
Heat oven to 400°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough on cookie sheet; press into 15x10-inch rectangle. In small bowl, mix olive oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Brush olive oil mixture evenly over crust. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix mayonnaise, cilantro, jalapeño chile and lime juice. Spoon into quart-size resealable food-store plastic bag. Set aside.
Top partially baked crust with cucumber, followed by carrots, then meatballs. Bake 7 to 11 minutes or until crust is golden brown and toppings are heated through.
Cut corner of bag, and squeeze mayonnaise mixture over pizza. Top with green onions and cilantro leaves. Add additional red pepper flakes, if desired.
- Find it difficult to evenly cut thin slices of cucumber? Invest in a mandolin slicer. This simple device cuts vegetables into perfectly thin slices every time. Besides cucumbers, a mandolin makes quick work of zucchini and summer squash, as well as potatoes for gratins and homemade French fries.
- Plain cooked meatballs are available in the freezer section of the grocery store. If you have trouble finding meatballs without sauce, simply rinse off sauce and pat dry before cutting in half.
