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…

Coos Bay Clam Pizza

Kim’s sister Loan (pronounced Lahn) came down from Coos Bay, Oregon where she lives, with a mission to get us together and make pizzas, cook some good food, and hang out with friends.  Knowing we all love seafood, she and Randy did a little digging (maybe a lot of digging) and personally dug up what seemed like a ton of Coos Bay Empire Clams!  I knew what we were going…Read More…

Sriracha Seasoned Salt

I met Randy Clemens at a baking class Peter was teaching at a Sir La Table here in Los Angeles. We were just getting Pizza Quest going and Peter was out on a teaching tour.  Peter introduced me to Randy, who had come to visit with him, after the class.  Peter had connected Randy with his publisher and Randy told us that he was close to finishing his first book…Read More…

LKB Banh Mi Pizza

For some time, I have suggested that when our friend Kim Wildermuth’s sister, Loan (pronounced Lahn),  who’s mother is responsible for our favorite “Mom’s Soy Pickled Jalapeños” comes to visit, that we get together and make a Vietnemese inspired pizza.  I have been a lucky guest on many of her visits from Oregon, when she and her husband Randy make the trip down to cook for me.  (Well, maybe they’re…Read More…

Spicy Oil

  As promised, here’ the spicy oil recipe. This is a staple ingredient n our house; one that I can use for many things.  When I don’t have any, I just sprinkle some chili flakes on my pizza, but the little extra time this takes to put together makes for such a better overall flavor.  The oil is spicy and flavorful without being too hot.  Instead of drizzling a little…Read More…

I have been really busy the past couple of weeks and haven’t been able to post any recipes, though I have some interesting ones to share as soon as I can get them all together and posted.  I decided to post an interesting sauce that I came up with for one of these pizzas that I will share shortly.  I came up with this as I was trying to figure…Read More…

I got an email from a Pizza Quest member recently asking about pizza stones and “00” flours.  We chatted back and forth and he has enthusiastically shared one of his family’s favorite pizza recipes.  It’s the pizza he starts every pizza making session with.  From what he says, if he doesn’t get it right “The Family” let’s him know. I’m really excited to try this pizza.  When Andy described his…Read More…

Here we are at the end of my “in depth” study of eggs and pizza — a 3 pizza egg-sperimentation.  This will surely not be the last pizza I make with eggs as there are an infinite number of possibilities to explore using this ingredient on pizza.  The immediate connection is breakfast, which pizza fits right into, performing as the toast that accompanies any good breakfast — helping to serve…Read More…

Jalapeño & Sunny Eggs Pizza

Eggs-perimentation – Numero Dos: I love Eggs on a pizza.  They are a perfect topping being both a topping and possibly becoming part of the sauce of the pizza.  If you time it right, you can get the egg to cook to that perfect Sunny Side Up – runny deliciousness.  After the pizza comes out, you simply take a fork and knife, or a spoon and break the yolk and…Read More…
