Roasted Eggplant Dip-blue bowl-pita bread

Fire Roasted Eggplant Dip

Oct 30, 2019

Autumn is my favorite season—cooler temperatures, longer nights and best of all: harvest! Eggplant is among the best of the bounty. Delicious dips such as baba ghanouj (also called baba ghanoush) and muttabal are mainly roasted eggplant, with most recipes placing the fruit directly on a gas burner and roasting until the skin cracks. What better candidate for the wood fired oven? I picked up four eggplants to roast in... Read More

  Smooth, salty, and snappy, this Prosciutto and Arugula Pizza from Chef Vito Romani is a delight. Prosciutto is a thinly-sliced Italian dry-cured ham.

If making your own sausage sounds like too much, one of my favorite versions that is readily available is D’Artagnan’s Andouille-Cajun style sausage. The sausage adds an intense kick of smoke and spicy paprika that... Read More

Caramelized Apple Pizza

Oct 16, 2014

Just when I had wrapped up a wonderful evening of fresh pizza making, my family turned to me and with lost looks on their faces collectively said, “what no dessert?” Fortunately I had a couple apples handy and gelato in the freezer. I went to work on a quick dessert pizza. The family was thrilled and spared me to cook for them yet another day. Hope you enjoy. Chef Bart... Read More
