When I was asked to participate in "JSL Foods' Super Bowl Finger Food Recipe Challenge" I was thrilled. I've been having so much fun creating recipes for their "JSL Foods Fortune Noodle Blogger Recipe Challenge" that I knew almost instantly what I would do for this theme.
If I'm being totally honest, I'm more excited about the food than the game when it comes to football parties and I don't think I've ever been to a Super Bowl party that didn't have pizza. Did you know that 12.5 million pizzas are bought on Super Bowl Sunday each year?! Isn't that insane?
Give your delivery guy a break and whip these up instead. Your guests will be thrilled you did.
Just look at those crispy bottoms! So yummy!
Super Bowl worthy Supreme Pizza Gyoza
¼ cup roughly chopped fresh mushrooms
2 Tablespoons finely chopped green bell pepper
2 Tablespoons finely chopped red onion
4 ounces room temperature cream cheese
¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
¼ cup diced pepperoni
2 Tablespoons finely chopped black olives
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
Place the mushrooms in a large non-stick skillet and cook over medium high heat for 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper and onion to the pan, and continue to cook for about 3 minutes, or until the vegetables have just wilted but aren’t browned. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Once the veggies have cooled, add them to a medium mixing bowl along with the cream cheese, mozzarella, basil, oregano, garlic salt, pepper, pepperoni and olives. Stir to combine.
Holding a wrapper in your palm, place about 2 teaspoons of the filling in the center of the dough. Using your finger, moisten the rim with water and fold the edges to create 6 pleats. Press to seal and place on a large cookie sheet, covered with a clean kitchen towel. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
Once all gyoza are ready, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium high heat. Place the gyoza in the pan and cook just until the bottoms are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Pour 1/3 cup water on the side of the pan and place a lid on the top. Allow the gyoza to steam, about 5 minutes. Remove the lid and cook just until the water has evaporated. Serve immediately.
Makes 19 gyoza
