Date Night Recipes – Truffle Pizza and Two-in-One Pie: Two delicious and easy recipes that would make your date night meal planning a breeze. Make them and have more time to spend with each other. Both the recipes are done within 30 minutes. Happy Weekend Everyone and here’s a quick ‘ Date Night Recipes – Truffle Pizza and Homemade Pie ‘ that I wanted to share with you’ll. A few days back I had received this really sweet request from one of our frequent readers and she wanted a quick date night recipe ideas. So, I did forward her couple of our recipes that I felt would make an excellent date night meal options like these:
Spicy Masala Egg Roast with Harissa
Quick Thai String Bean & Chicken Recipe
Easy Shrimp and Sausage Paella Recipe
Passionfruit and Mint Sangria
Zarda – Indian Sweet Rice Pilaf with Saffron and Nuts
Quick Baileys Chocolate Mint Brownies
But then, I also decided to create a meal just for two using my new Chicago Metallic pans.
Hence, I decided to make an easy ‘Pesto Truffle Pizza’ and ‘Homemade Pie’ that would be a perfect combination of deliciousness and comfort-food. It’s a meal, you can prep a night before (if you have time) or even 40 minutes notice. Just use any homemade or store-bought pie crust and both the recipes can be done in 30 minutes as they can be both baked together. The fun part in all this was creating the ‘homemade pie’ using the ‘Split Decision Pie Pan‘ (picture below). It’s a dream come true for pie lovers as you can not only make 1 but 2 pies in one go – how cool is that!! It’s also really convenient if you and your loved ones have completely different pie choices and in our case, it’s perfect as he’s more of a dark chocolate lover and I’m more of a lemon/fruit pie lover. So, I combined both our options and made this ‘Lemon-Chocolate Pie’ 🙂 Once, I finalized the pie recipe, the pizza was a breeze as it’s just pesto, truffle oil, chicken salami and few veggies. For pizza I used a ‘Perforated Jelly Roll Pan’ as it gives an even and crisp base because of the even distribution of heat.
Once, both the ‘ Truffle Pizza and Two-in-One Pie’ recipes were prepped, I baked the pizza and the pie crust together in the oven and after 15 minutes, took out the pie crust while our pizza baked for slightly longer. Once the pie crust was all cool, then I just mixed different pudding flavors (lemon and chocolate) in separate bowls. Then I placed the pie pan separator on the cooked pie crust and layered each side of the pudding. Then finally decorated with some whipped cream and toppings on each side and kept it in the fridge for chilling while the pizza baked. So go ahead and try this recipe and check out more bakeware options from Chicago Metallic as they are all very good quality and dishwasher safe too.
