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 focused on testing variations of my crust recipe, perfecting some of my favorite pizzas, and creating some delicious new ones. I recently had my first child so I don’t expect to make as many pizzas as I have the last few years – maybe I’ll actually cut back to one a week! As always, let me know what you think or if you have any ideas.
