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 Lobster Pizza

May 24, 2016

It was beautiful out. I was going to make some lobster and put it on a pizza, but what’s different about that and putting other seafood on a pizza like shrimp, mussels, clams, salmon etc? I decided to keep it simple for this one and make a lightly dressed salad to lay on the pizza dough after it was cooked – making sure it was nice and cool – kept... Read More

A Girl and Her Dragon – Quest Night #2: The Re-Cheesening

May 19, 2016

Yes, I have gone to the dark side of cheesy (haha) blog titles. Last time it was an incomprehensible pun, this time it’s some sort of movie rip-off. The Re-Cheesening sounds like last year’s failed horror reboot, but hey, I like it. Humor aside, this was my second Quest night with the pizza oven, and it went amazingly! I learned from my mistakes last year, and got the fire up... Read More

Rapini, Salami, Meyer Lemon and Robiola Pizza

May 16, 2016

It’s not that I dislike putting tomato sauce on pizza—and even if I did, I wouldn’t admit to it here!—but I like to let the dough shine through in all its glory, with a light topping of rustic greenery and salumery. Here’s an excellent example of my California Wine-Country style with pizza: we use admirable restraint with the amount of toppings, but all the flavors are big and powerful. My... Read More

Spinach Mushroom & Egg Pie

Mar 14, 2016

  Who said eggs were just for breakfast? Miraculous, sunny orbs of rich goodness, eggs constantly amaze me. In fact, you can put an egg or two onto almost any pizza, as long as you build up a low “wall” from the other toppings, so the egg will be contained in place until it’s (just slightly) cooked. When you cut the pie, the runny yolk will mix together with the... Read More

Bad Weather and Pizza Ovens

Feb 04, 2016

As a resident of California for the past 17 years, I believe that I can officially claim the title of spoiled summer child. As much as I would like to deny it, I simply can’t take the cold. A brisk breeze sends me running in search of a coat (much to my Virginian father’s amusement), and I adamantly believe that the best way to experience a snowstorm is inside one’s... Read More
