Wood-Roasted Caramelized Brussels’ Sprouts

Nov 04, 2016

Crisp-golden, salt-flecked, and toothsome, these alluring little green gems are the perfect accompaniment to a Thanksgiving or Christmas menu, and they’re user-friendly, too: You can cover and refrigerate the blanched sprouts on a paper towel-lined platter for several hours before finishing them in the hot oven. The halved sprouts must be cooked in one layer, so choose your largest, heaviest skillet. Wood-Roasted Caramelized Brussels’ Sprouts 12345 Votes: 0 Rating: 0... Read More

The Pig & The Fig – Makes one 13-inch pizza; may be doubled or tripled

Oct 04, 2016

It’s been my recurring dream and ambition to pair pork with fresh figs, and this colorful, seasonal pizza is one of my favorite ways to do so. Figs are in fact one of our most seasonal fruits or vegetables, and in many parts of the country, September is the best time to find them. So grab your figs quickly and get to work making my awesome 48-Hour dough for this... Read More

Brigit Binns Ricotta Flat Bread

Ricotta and White Anchovy Flatbread with Preserved Meyer Lemon and Fresh Rosemary

Sep 09, 2016

In my one-woman campaign to pull red-sauce-aficionadoes kicking and screaming outside the pizza-box, here I offer a mostly-white “take” on flatbread (using my amazing 72-hour dough, of course) with a decided kick of salty, sour, and herbal notes. White anchovies bear as little resemblance to standard anchovies as burrata cheese to aged Parmiggiano: They’re both good, in their place, but sooo not interchangeable. Make the effort to get some of... Read More

A Girl and Her Dragon – Beyond Pizza

Sep 07, 2016

You can cook more than just pizza in that oven of yours. I know, I know, sacrilege! It’s a pizza oven for a reason! Hear me out though. I’ve catered close to a dozen events this summer, from massive corporate parties to private birthday bashes, and a couple of times clients have asked us for something beyond the basic insert-your-toppings-here package. In response to their requests, I did a bit... Read More

Leek and Meyer Lemon Pizza

Leek Jam, Meyer Lemon, Anchovy, Black Olive and Dill Flatbread

Jul 14, 2016

In keeping with my desire to cook outside of the box when it comes to flatbreads, here is a real flavor-palooza of a pie, that is (yes, Virginia) actually cheese-free! The leek jam does take a little time, but the result is worth it, and I encourage you to make double or triple the recipe, then freeze it in smaller containers so that when the urge strikes, you’ll be ready...

Crab and Artichoke Savory Bread Pudding

Jun 20, 2016

Isn’t it frustrating to let the oven’s residual heat go to waste? Here’s a recipe that gives you the opportunity to make a delicious brunch dish for the next day, after you’ve cooked up a feast the night before. I had a pizza festa on a recent Saturday night for some friends who were staying with us for the weekend. I made a dozen assorted pies, but a few of... Read More

Potato and Radicchio Wood Fired Pizza

Jun 17, 2016

Potatoes are not a typical pizza topping in the USA but the cutting-edge pizzerias of Rome and Naples love to add the starchy root to a crisp and golden pie. Here, the blissful flavor of charred radicchio and the salty tang of prosciutto provide an earthy balance, while cool fresh mozzarella and a whisper of fresh oregano ties it all together into happy harmony. Makes one @13-inch pizza; may be... Read More

Wood Fired Global Baked Beans

Be honest. Are you still opening cans of Heinz 57 when it comes to culinary pals for your hot dogs?
