Week 48: Leftovers – Pizza Bread Pudding

Having to work every Thanksgiving evening and rarely getting a chance to indulge in a hot turkey meal, let alone leftovers, I’ve opted to take this challenge in a different direction and offered leftover pizza a chance at metamorphosis.

First it begins with a pizza.

And a metric fuck-ton of willpower.

After some lonely time cooling down, that tasty-looking pizza got packed away to become way less sexy leftovers.

Even without that fresh oven glow, this pizza still looked so tasty. Working quickly to fight off taking even a nibble, I cut each piece into small pieces.

I whipped together a big bowl of eggs, cream and parmesan.

After stuffing muffin tins with pizza cubes, I poured the cream over until each was just full and applied a quick hit of parmesan over top before placing these confused beauties in the oven.

So foreign and alluring at the same time.

A bottle of Taurasi made for a killer pairing with all the leathery, meaty, dark fruit characteristic of Aglianico complementing the heartiness of each marinara-coated morsel. The wine is rich and structured but really comes alive in front of flavors that can match its intensity.

Judge me if you must but I found much joy in these little pizza desecrations. They’re definitely worth a revisit.
