Chag Sameach, Happy Passover, Azeesin Pesach! No matter how you say it this is the Holiday where fellow jews sit around the Sedar table celebrating our exodus from being slaves in Egypt and the asking of the same four questions that explain why this night is different than all other nights!
1. On all nights we need not dip even once, and on this night why do we dip twice? 2. On all other nights we eat leavened bread or matzah, on this night, why only matzah?3. On all other nights we eat various herbs, and on this night, why only bitter herbs? 4. On all other nights we eat sitting in an upright position, Why on this night do we sit in a reclining position?
Or in Hebrew Transliteration:
Ma nishtanah halailah hazeh mikol haleilot?
1. Sheb’khol haleilot anu okhlin hametz umatzah; halailah hazeh, kuloh matzah. 2. Sheb’khol haleilot anu okhlin sh’ar y’rakot; halailah hazeh, maror.
3. Sheb’khol haleilot ein anu matbilin afilu pa’am ehat; halailah hazeh, shtei f’amim.
4. Sheb’khol haleilot anu okhlin bein yoshvin uvein m’subin; halailah hazeh, kulanu m’subin.
But my question is…WHERE’s THE PIZZA??! Most families opt to just not eat bread this entire week, others (like mine) go all out and fully clean and restock their entire home for Passover with Kosher for Pesach products, and new dishes & flat wear!
Here, I have an amazing recipe for pizza that truly doesn’t make you miss your good ‘ol Italian pie – Mazot Pizza!
1. “Yehuda Gluten Free Mazot” (made from potato and tapioca. Is a texturally smoother and moister Mazot that has a slightly sweet and salty flavor)
2. Gefen Tomato Sauce
How To Make the Pizza:
1. Place sheet of Mazot in the toaster oven and toast on high for one round or until golden.
2. Take Mazot out of toaster oven and and add a thin layer of tomato sauce.
3. Add desired amount of the shredded cheese mixture on top. About 1/2 cup or more.
4. Sprinkle a light dusting of oregano on top of cheese. Then add the red pepper flakes to desired taste.
5. Place Mazot back in toaster oven and toast till cheese is melted and golden brown on top!
6. Take out of the oven cut into pieces and ENJOY!!
It’s as simple as that!
You can also add other vegetables to the pizza to give yourself more variety.
