John Wozniak's NYC'esque Pie
"Inspired by Kenji's NYC style post, I created something NYC'esque, if not completely NYC style...Totally nom-able it was, and a nice balance between the more desirable (IMO) aspects of both Neapolitan and NYC styles."
Tom Scarborough's Wood-Fired Pizza
Wondering what comes from Tom Scarborough's oven? Here ya go:
"This is from Saturday night's WFO bake, it is fresh shrimp, baby portabello, and roasted red peppers on a thin crust. The dough was fresh with only 1 hour doubling, a punchdown, and a 4 hour cold ferment. The sauce was fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil, oregano, capers and black pepper, cooked down on very low heat and sauced with a stick blender."</p"
Dhorst's Great Northern Beans, Spinach and Tomato Pizza:
"Why are there beans draining in the sink?"
"Because they're going on my pizza."
"You're sleeping in the back yard tonight."
"Homemade sourdough crust with a 36 hour ferment, brushed with garlic infused olive oil, and topped with a little mozzarella, Great Northern beans, thawed and squeezed frozen spinach, grape tomatoes and a bit of shaved parm. Post oven, finished with a drizzle of olive oil, aleppo chile pepper, and some more parm. It was really great; the beans had a creamy richness that played well with the parm and the aleppo pepper. The spinach and tomato cut the richness. And no, I did not sleep in the back yard. I eat beans enough that I do not have the after-effects that my husband sometimes does."
Mike's Grilled Pizza
Mike of Watch Me Eat has this grilled pie to share. Is that a pool in the background? I'm getting jealous...
"I grilled up these two pizzas on the barbecue. I based the dough recipe from a combination of different websites. The sauce is canned chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, and lots of garlic mixed in the blender. The cheese is pre-shredded mozzarella from the supermarket. Although one of the pies got stuck on the grill in a spot, these pizzas came out much better than my first grilled pizza attempt. They were nice and charred on the outer crust, while the interior remained soft and fluffy. Can't wait to give this another try!"
House Standard Pizza from Jon S.
"This is the pizza that I make in my house roughly 75% of the time, as we usually keep plenty of cheese in the refrigerator...This pizza uses three cheeses: Kraft mozzarella as a base cheese, Bel Gioso fresh mozzarella on top of that, then grated Parmesan Reggiano over that. Basil (fresh when I have it) goes to finish the building process off before it hits the oven. Once it comes out of the oven, a light coating of Italian olive oil gets streaked across the top as a finisher."

BoRaynolds's Sausage, Onion, and Garlic Pizza
"Hi! Might be too late to get this in, but I just got back from San Francisco! Una Pizza is doing well over there. My wife and I ate all five of his pies! I don't think we'll eat till Thanksgiving now. Anyway, this is my sausage, onion, garlic pie." —BoRaynolds
Adam Kuban's Faux Rosa
Our own Adam Kuban contributes this one:
"This is my Faux Rosa (Faux-sa?), inspired, of course, by Pizzeria Bianco's Rosa pie. Unfortunately, I forgot to toss on the shaved Parmesan. The dough, again, is per Jeff Varasano's recipe. For cooking, I've moved away from the skillet-broiler method and am cooking my pizzas on my FibraMent stone that sits about 4 inches from the broiler in my gas oven's broiler drawer. The skillet-broiler method is great, but I've found I can get similar results in my broiler drawer. If you don't have a broiler drawer, I'd still recommend the skillet-broiler method. I think I've maybe overcooked the edges a bit here. Still tasty, though."
"As I discussed on my post related to Pizza a Casa, here is a calzone I made with Mark's dough recipe, with a 5-day cold ferment. This calzone is stuffed with some ricotta, fresh mozzarella, hot Italian sausage, and spicy sopressata, with a small spoonful of tomato purée, all purchased from Eataly. This calzone has been brushed with an egg wash so is really nicely browned and glossy. Cooked on my stone in a 500°F oven, it took 15 to 18 minutes."
