Polenta
is a traditional Italian porridge made from maize meal, often with cheese added. Sometimes it may be further cooked by implementing a baking or frying process.

Polenta is mostly made from ground cornmeal. Sometimes it is prepared as a porridge, or a shaped pudding or as baked slices. In many cases this depends upon the texture of the cornmeal, its ingredients, the amount of water used in cooking and the preparation of the particular dish.

Polenta made of cornmeal ground the Italian way is quite inviting. Today, we’ll try our hand at using polenta as a base for a delicious pizza.

I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one.

 

Ingredients:

* 2 quarts water
* 2 cups polenta *
* 16 ounces soy mozzarella cheese *
* 1/2 teaspoon dried chili pepper flakes
* 1/2 cup vegetarian pizza sauce
* 2 large, not-quite-ripe tomatoes, rinsed
* 1 large green pepper, rinsed and de-seeded
* 12 ounces box mushrooms, wiped clean
* 1 tablespoon Italian or pizza seasoning
* non-fat cooking spray

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Put water in a large pot or Dutch oven and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile grate the soy cheese and set aside. When water is boiling, slowly pour in the polenta while stirring at the same time. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue stirring the polenta every few minutes to avoid lumps and prevent scorching. You may want to partially cover the pot with a lid as the polenta tends to start spitting as it thickens.
