Now that they have changed the clock, Shabbos starts and ends an hour earlier. Traditionally, we eat a meal called a Melave Malke (literally, Escorting the Queen) to accompany the Shabbos queen from our homes.
Typically, after the meat-based Shabbos meals, the Melave Malke meal is dairy. Aaron, who has been our official Melave Malke cook is in Cleveland, so I am mostly on my own to prepare Motzei Shabbos (Saturday night). Some family favorite Melave Malka delicacies are Baked Spaghetti Squash with Sauce and Cheese and Calzones.
On the first Motzei Shabbos after changing the clock, I decided to change things up. Rather than order or prepare from-scratch pizza, I decided to layer on-hand ingredients to prepare something delicious and different.
I prepared a pizza pretzel pie. It started with frozen pretzels. I spread the pretzels out atop a bed of wraps. I then layered sauce and sprinkled a blend of shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese. I baked it all for 20 minutes and voila! We had simple as pie pretzel pizza.
wheat wraps or flour tortillas
frozen pretzels (like Superpretzel)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a pizza pan with parchment paper. Spread a layer of tortillas or wraps, overlapping slightly, until the entire pizza pan is covered. Place pretzels on top and then brush with sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Optionally, sprinkle with topping such as sesame seeds, fresh garlic or chopped vegetables.
Bake for 15-30 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
Shavuah Tov! (good week)
