We’ve been wanting to show you this video for quite a while. It was filmed in Boulder at the end of The Fire Within Conference, with mobile oven owner Joe D’Astice. Joe is the founder of Wood Fire Brick Oven Pizza, in Rockford, Illinois, where he makes seriously great pizza in his mobile oven.
At his catering events, one of the most popular items is this S’Mores Pizza, replete with melted chocolate, marshmallows, and graham cracker crumbs. Yes, it’s a total sensual indulgence, tasty to the max, but more importantly, it expands our thinking about what a pizza can be–limited only by our imagination. You don’t need a wood-fired oven to make these–they’d be great for dessert any night, straight out of your home oven, and especially fun to make with your whole family.
For those of you in the Rockford area, check out Joe at the local farmers market and also at his website: www.woodfirebrickovenpizza.com.
