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

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
