Pizza R-o-P

I hope you had a chance to look at my Rack o’ Pork recipe.  If not, I’ll wait a second to continue here. Go on, go back and read it.  I won’t wait for you to make it, but I hope after reading that recipe and this pizza recipe that you’ll be making plans to pick up a rack this weekend. It isn’t easy coming up with pizza recipes to…Read More…

Crab Stuffed Mushroom Pizza

Written By Brad English
Sunday, 17 November 2013 Written Recipes

I’ve made a number of pizzas over the years with seafood.  I like the uniqueness of how seafood blends and stands out as a topping on a pizza. When you do it right, shrimps on a pizza literally snap when you bite them, and that’s a good thing!  Clams are right at home on a pizza.  After all, what do you do when eating steamers?  You sop up the sauce…Read More…

Fire Roasted Brussels

Wednesday, 30 October 2013 Written Recipes

Oh my god!  I found the most amazing vegetable!  I don’t think anyone knows about it.  They are these little bulbs called Brussels Sprouts and I’m the first one to ever think of cooking them and eating them. Ok, maybe not the first. Boy are these things the hot item these days.  I bet they run out of favor soon because they seem to have exploded so big as THE…Read More…

Drunken Mesquite Dough

What do you do with some Firestone Double Barrel Ale, Fire Roasted Western Honey-Mesquite Flour and a need for pizza? Well the answer is simple: you make some of my desert-inspired Mesquite Dough.  However, you not only sip on your beer while making it, but you make the dough with some of your beer! I set out to just make the dough, and took some pictures of the set-up because…Read More…

Brussels-eroni Pizza

Saturday, 27 April 2013 Written Recipes

You may think I’ve gone off the rails here with my pepperoni-ing of everything, but realize this isn’t all I eat!  I sit around and come up with an idea and make a bunch of pizzas to try something out.  As you can see from the last few weeks, it takes some time to get these postings together.  It doesn’t take nearly the time to make and devour the actual…Read More…

Wednesday, 09 January 2013 Written Recipes

The hardest part of making a great pizza at home is making and baking a great pizza dough.  I found Peter Reinhart because this otherwise simple task eluded me in my home pizza making endeavors for so long.  I now make what I consider to be a decent dough, or doughs as I keep trying to chase that perfect pizza experience here at home with my family. The next thing…Read More…

Garden Cherry Tomato Pizza

Written By Brad English
Wednesday, 28 November 2012 Written Recipes

I was working in New York City this summer and went on some great little pizza quests.  When I got home, I found that a group of volunteer cherry tomato plants were about ready to burst in my back yard. I decided that things had gotten out of control, as the plants were crawling across my patio and it was time to clean things up. First, I had to pluck…Read More…

The Hwy 15 Pizza

Thursday, 20 September 2012 Written Recipes

A few months ago I went to Las Vegas for the Pizza Expo.  I wrote about visiting with John Arena of Metro Pizza.  While driving to Vegas I had been a little lost in thought.  No, I wasn’t on my phone, but I was drifting along somewhere out in there in the desert.  I was thinking about the email exchange I had with John and the fact that he mentioned…Read More…

Pesto Seafood Pizza

Tuesday, 11 September 2012 Written Recipes

When you do a pizza night, half the fun is coming up with the menu.  With the prep work that goes into making pizza, it just doesn’t make sense making one type of pizza for the night.  You usually have the idea pizza for the night and then you borrow ingredients, add others and come up with supporting pizzas for that particular event. Our friends had us over and as…Read More…

Sriracha Dough

Thursday, 30 August 2012 Written Recipes

I have only experimented with this dough one time.  It’s nothing earth shattering, though it sounds like it should be, but it’s certainly interesting, so I think it’s worthy of a post. I was making up some pizzas recently and we were doing a Vietnamese inspired pizza. Since I make the doughs the day before, I noticed my Sriracha Salt just sitting there staring at me on the counter.  As…Read More…
