My Pie Monday: Pizzasnob's Clam & Olive Pizza
Pizzasnob here. Here's my submission: Clam & Olive Pizza. I've included the main picture resized to your spec, but for the upskirt and cornicione shot, go to this page: http://www.timkang.com/2010/02/clam-olive-pizza/
I used Lahey's no-knead pizza dough recipe for the crust and baked the pizza on top of an inverted cast iron grill under my gas-oven broiler. I used my own recipe for the sauce:
- 3 cloves of sliced garlic slowly softened in olive oil
- Shucked/roughly chopped 6 clams and poured the clam juice into the garlic/olive oil mix until it reduced down
- Tossed in 2 puréed fresh Roma tomatoes and cooked on high until it resembled hot cereal in consistency
- Topped the stretched dough with the sauce, some chopped kalamata olives, the chopped clams, bufala mozzarella, and shaved pecorino romano
- Baked it under the broiler for 2 minutes, turned it, and let it toast another 2 minutes
- Topped with some basil leaves from my windowsill basil plant
Hope I "topped that" in a Slice-worthy manner!
[Yes. I believe you did, Pizzasnob. —The Mgmt.]
