This is a St. Patty’s day tradition in our house, I make it almost every year and we always say “we should make this more often”! It’s a fun twist on a traditional Irish classic! Making the dish in “pizza” form is fun and interactive, you could even do mini pizzas for a party too!
- 3 carrots, peeled and sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
- 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
1 (about 3 lbs) corned beef brisket already brined.
- 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
- 2 cauliflower pizza crusts (you can use regular too!)
- 2 Tablespoons truffle oil.
- 6 cups water
- 1 lb bag shredded cabbage
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
In a slow cooker, place carrots and sweet potatoes. Remove corned beef from package, and rinse (I like to rinse it to remove some of the saltiness). Place corned beef, fat side up, on top of vegetables add enough water to almost cover meat (about 6 cups). Cover and cook on high until corned beef is tender, about 6 hours on low.
Melt butter in a saucepan, once it’s heated add cabbage, salt, Pepper and broth, sauté until cabbage is translucent and completely cooked (about 5-10 minutes). Let cool.
Once meat is cooked, prepare pizza crust as directed on package. I opted for cauliflower pizza crust but you can use regular pizza crust too, Once crust is baked sprinkle generously with truffle oil and a light sprinkle of mozzarella cheese, now build your pizza! Start with veggies, shred beef and add that, then top completely with cabbage and the reminder of the mozzarella cheese.
Turn oven to broil and broil pizza on high, just until cheese is melted and browned.
Now let cool for 5 minutes, serve and enjoy with a cold Guinness.
Happy St. Patricks day!
