I love pizza! I have for as long as I can remember. My first job in high school was in a pizza restaurant and in college I started baking my own. Coming from a long line of amazing cooks, my mother is my greatest influence. She is the one that taught me to make my own dough and it didn’t take long before I was started making pizza, calzones or stromboli every weekend.
While my husband and I were on our honeymoon I decided I would make 52 different pizzas in 2010. This blog has an entry about each one and as you’ll see, the plan was to create one a week, but I finished in September! The process of creating so many new recipes was tons of fun, but most of all I enjoyed sharing my recipes with my readers and guests to our home.
In 2011 I took on an even bigger challenge. I picked a city, learned what food that city is famous for, and turned that food into a pizza. I created over 20 unique pizzas during this project. For example, Rochester, NY is known for Garbage Plates and Zweigle’s White Hots. Read more about how I turned these Rochester favorites into their own pizza.
In 2012 I plan to focus on testing variations of my crust recipe, perfecting some of my favorite pizzas, and creating some delicious new ones. As always, let me know what you think or if you have any ideas!
