Pepperoni Substitute For Pizza

Mary also sent this recipe. She says "We use a tangy fresh mozzarella (one with vinegar in the ingredients, but no salt), Boar's Head Parmesan (55mg sodium per Tablespoon), homemade no-salt sauce and dough, fresh mushrooms, and chopped red onions. If you haven't had "real" pizza for a while, it's pretty good." I tried these and they are very good, although my wife would prefer a little less cayenne. I'd like to try drying them in the dehydrator or oven, but haven't yet.

1 t cayenne pepper
4 1/2 t paprika
1/2 t Fennel Seed,Crushed
1/2 t Aniseed,Crushed
1 1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t sugar
1 t Dry Mustard
ds Allspice
1 t citric acid powder
liquid smoke

Mix the dry ingredients well. Store in an airtight container. To use, slice small red tomatoes like Romas very thin (1/8"). If the tomatoes are very juicy, you might need to blot them between paper towels to remove excess moisture. Lay the slices on wax paper in a single layer. Brush with liquid smoke and sprinkle evenly and fairly generously with spices. (If you don't have a good sprinkling jar, spoon a little of the spice mix into a small strainer and use that to get an even coating.) Turn the slices over. Brush with liquid smoke again and sprinkle with spices. These can be used immediately or refrigerated for a day or two.
