Well hello! Fancy meeting you here. Come on in...I have something I think you might like. It's pizza topped with pheasant tomato sauce, bufala and fresh basil. Oh...and sliced, tender pheasant. Here's a little briefing on what the hell I did to get here. The hardest part was the hunting for pheasant. It took a trip on my bicycle, unarmed to enter the supermarket and find a package of pheasant breasts. No I didn't literally hunt for it. You're not gonna get me to shoot one of those things. I'd rather pay for someone to do the little fucker in. Anyway, here goes...
I started by marinading these little fellas in balsamic vinegar, salt, lemon, water and basil earlier in the day. Then I browned these supple breasts on both sides for a couple of minutes with some salt and pepper. I removed the browned breasts and threw some garlic, onions and tomatoes into the fatty juices and sautéed them.
I then threw the breasts back in to simmer for a while in the marinade with the juices and the root veggies/tomatoes. I removed the pheasant and let the broth reduce for a while with the marinade and the fatty pheasant juices.
I sliced up the pheasant and let the pieces soak in some olive oil and balsamic.
I added tomato paste to the reduced pheasant broth and let the moisture cook out a little leaving a fuckin' kick ass sauce flavored with the gamy pheasant juices, a hint of balsamic, and textured with fresh root vegetables, fresh tomatoes and basil!
Took a simple pizza dough that I prepared in advance...
Let it start in the over on high heat...
Spread that sauce atop with some bufala mozzarella and distributed the sliced pheasant on top of the cheese. I the oven until cheese is melted...
Then out! I placed some fresh basil on top...
Sliced it up and served! Enjoy!
