New York, NY
Finding out what food cities are famous for and turning those foods into pizza has been a fun adventure so far this year. When I think of New York City I think of pizza. So for this week I decided to make my own New York style pizza. I have the same memory from each of my visits to the Big Apple: walking down the street while eating a thin crust traditional New York style slice. I can still feel the grease trickle from a folded slice down my wrist and to my elbow.
To begin, I rolled my dough thinner than usual, then pre-baked it. Next, I spread on a layer of sauce and fresh mozzarella cheese. Last I covered the pizza with the toppings. This week I used capicola, baby bella mushrooms, spinach and roasted red peppers because they taste great together and offer a healthy alternative to some of my most recent pizza creations. After the pizza was done baking I sliced it and we dug in. The veggies were fresh and tasted great with the capicola and mozzarella cheese. My New York style pizza recipe didn’t include the grease, but it was a delicious alternative to the Big Apple’s famous food.

Mushroom and Zuke Pizza
Spring break, woo hoo!!! I’m spending it by taking care of appointments, visiting with friends and making pizza. Tonight my friend Amber came over to catch up and be my guinea pig for a pizza Andrew wouldn’t touch. Andrew hates mushrooms so I haven’t had the chance to use them as a topping, and having never cooked mushrooms I was really looking forward to trying it. Luckily, Amber said she loves them so they are a key ingredient of tonight’s pizza recipe. I sliced the shrooms and two small zucchinis, then sautéed them with oil and garlic. The topping combo was placed on top of marinara sauce and the fresh mozzarella cheese I used over the weekend. My first attempt to cook mushrooms was a success, this pizza tasted great! Amber seemed to enjoy the pizza as well. I offered to send her home with leftovers but was not offended when she declined because that means I will get to enjoy this pizza again tomorrow!
