A Few of My Pizza Oven Favorites

Oct 26, 2015

A little more than a year has taught me a few things about pizza out of a Forno Bravo pizza oven.  To name just a few: the woods and the flavor of smoke, the fire and how to trust in the dome-licking flames, the illusion of controlling the dough, yeast, humidity and time, and of course the toppings–spicy, sweet, tart, bold, creamy, sharp and all delicious.  The most important lesson...

Taleggio Chanterelle Pizza

Taleggio And Golden Chanterelle Pizza

Feb 21, 2015

Taleggio is one of my favorite cheeses. Hailing from the Lombardy region of Italy, it is rich, buttery and balanced with tart fruity and nutty flavors. It is sublime on any cheese plate but it quickly becomes ridiculously delicious when melted on pizza. Taleggio has a soft reddish-yellow washed rind that gives it a subtle salty finish and a wonderful off-white pale colored paste. If you have yet to dabble... Read More

Caesar Salad Pizza

Caesar Salad Pizza

Feb 06, 2015

Gotta give credit to my daughter and her affinity for Caesar salad for this recipe. Credit also goes to my son for grabbing the camera and documenting it for all to see. I would never claim credit for inviting such a combination but it certainly was a great reminder of a quick down and easy topping for a flavorful family favorite. Until next week, feast well. – Chef Bart Caesar... Read More

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

Wood-Fired Croatia (or more accurately, Istria)

Aug 29, 2013

We just returned from a very nice trip to Croatia. I have wanted to explore the Dalmatian coast for years, and the timing was right this summer. Our older daughter spent the summer working on campus in Boston (a very cool research project on pre-fab building using 3D modeling software and CNC laser equipment) and she had two weeks off before the start of school. And we put it to... Read More
