I have been really busy the past couple of weeks and haven't been able to post any recipes, though I have some interesting ones to share as soon as I can get them all together and posted. I decided to post an interesting sauce that I came up with for one of these pizzas that I will share shortly. I came up with this as I was trying to figure out an appropriate sauce for the pizza I was making. It wouldn't work with a traditional tomato sauce and my usual go-to special sauce - an herbed oil -- didn't seem to be appropriate. So, I thought I would try something...
...and it turned out great! I decided I would post this as a separate recipe in advance of the coming pizza. (aka, a "teaser"). Enjoy!!
Spicy Mayo Sauce
- Peter's Chili Oil *I make this all the time from Peter's book "American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza," *Link here
- Chopped Mom's Soy Pickled Jalapeños and Garlic
*See our homemade recipe: *Link here
In a bowl, mix mayonnaise and chili oil. I used a good amount of the chili oil so that the mayonnaise mixture won't dry out during the bake.
Add the chopped jalapeños and garlic, and mix everything together.
That's it. It's not complicated, but I think it is iunique and delicious! I will definitely be trying this on a sandwich in the near future (maybe with a little less oil for that).
*Tune in next week for a really fun and interesting pizza that we used this sauce for!
