"Kleftiko is a typical dish for every single celebration. It is a piece of lamb or goat wrapped in foil and baked in special ovens, that in any case must be closed airtight, until the Kleftiko will be baked. The origin of this dish, as history tells us, goes back to the Cypriot freedom fighters of the 19th.Century that lived in the mountain. They had to prepare their stolen meat, the Kleftiko, neither that some could smell it, nor that it could be seen. Though they baked it closed in special earthenware pottery, that they had buried under the ground.
Klephts "After the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and then Mistra in the Despotate of the Morea, the majority of the plains of Greece fell entirely into the hands of the Ottoman Empire. The only territories that did not fall under Ottoman rule were the mountain ranges (populated by Greeks and inaccessible to the Ottoman Turks), as well as a handful of islands and coastal possessions under the control of Venice. This situation lasted until at least 1821 (although there were some parts of Greece, such as Macedonia and Epirus, that still remained in Turkish hands until the 20th century) and this period of time in Greece is known as the Τουρκοκρατία or "Turkocracy." Klephts under Ottoman rule were generally men who were fleeing vendettas or taxes, debts and reprisals from Ottoman officials. They raided travelers and isolated settlements and lived in the rugged mountains and back country. Most klephtic bands participated in some form in the Greek War of Independence. During the Greek War of Independence, the klephts, along with the armatoloi, formed the nucleus of the Greek fighting forces, and played a prominent part throughout its duration. Yannis Makriyannis referred to the "klephtes and armatoloi" as the "yeast of liberty"."
I'd feel like shit from all that cream and butter.
Every time I go to Gran Canaria our family friend's mother makes this: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Shes been making it for 60 years, all the main ingredients are locally produced, some of them by her self. It tastes unbelievable, but also really, really energizing. The oranges from her garden are literally the best I've ever had.
Olive oiled crust. Tomato paste and a three cheese moont-zareLLA!, medium and sharp cheddar combination.
black Olives. bacon bits. REAL bacon..not the little bacon flavored shits. jalapenos shredded deli ham fresh tomatoes mushrooms fresh spinach garlic salt and two layers of pepperoni. One directly after the cheese, and another on top of all the added toppings.
I'm forgetting something.
it's called a proletarian three cheese, three meat reinforced pepperoni and vegetable thin crust pizza pie-ya.
Preheat an over to 425 and bake on middle rack for about nine minutes..longer for burnt crust. I like mine just a little more crispy..not burnt, but almost, no what I mean?
