Slideshow: My Pie Monday: Asparagus, Scalloped Potatoes, and an Easter Special

Asparagus Pizza from Completelypizza
Asparagus Pizza from Completelypizza
"It’s great as an appetizer at a cocktail or dinner party or as a main dinner dish. Start with an easy pizza dough recipe (or you can use premade)…thin crust works best. Drizzle olive oil on dough, then add slices of Mozzarella cheese and thin slices of asparagus. Dot on some spreadable garlic and herb cheese like Alouette, sprinkle ground black pepper and you have a great dish. You can visit my blog to see the full recipe and step by step pictures."Completelypizza

Forzapizza's Prucola Pizza
"I swear I don't put arugula on all my pizzas...but here's another one. Made with 100% Caputo flour, the classic combo of mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, prosciutto, arugula, and grana padano. Here's a video of the making of this pizza."Forzapizza

Mmmph's Portuguese Chouriço Pizza
"My Fly Spanish Pie….Actually more Galician, than Spanish. Portuguese chouriço, Iberico cheese, Piquillo peppers, tomatoes, and red onion. All finished with grated Manchego cheese. Made from a blend of 00 and bread flour with a 48 hour room temp and refrigerated fermentation, this one went fast and I had to make another just like it. More pies from this bake can be seen here on pizzamaking.com."Mmmph
James S's Balsamic Onion Pizza
James S's Balsamic Onion Pizza
"I have been making a lot of bread at home and experimenting with high hydration whole wheat recipes. I figured I could put some of that to use in making pies. This is a 75% hydration dough with about 15% whole wheat. Once again I used my culture plus a touch a yeast, and cold fermented 2 days, bulk prodded about 3 hours, shaped and let rise again another 2 hours. I baked in 550 oven for about 9 minutes. It's topped with Reinhart's Balsamic Onion Marmalade and oven roasted tomatoes, with fresh mozzarella."James S.

Norma's NJ Boardwalk Pizza
Norma's NJ Boardwalk Pizza
"I made another attempt for a Mack's NJ Boardwalk pizza this week. The pie almost tasted like Mack's pizza. Mack's pizza has been my favorite pizza since I was young. I used another formula for this pizza and it tasted like the crust of a Mack's pizza. I used a five cheese blend for the cheese on this pizza."Norma427

Phillyjazzdoc's Fig and Pecan Pizza
"Fig, smoked cheddar, fresh mozzarella, gorgonzola dolce, pecans. Caputo 00 75%hydration, dry yeast, 550 degrees on stone, about 8 minutes. This was my first experience with the 00 flour, and I like it. Supple and silky. I'll try a bit less hydration next time."—Phillyjazzdoc
NoMemBrn's Gas grill/Pizza stone Combo
NoMemBrn's Gas grill/Pizza stone Combo
"Dough was based on Peter Reinhart's pizza napoletana recipe 70% hydration, 75% KA bread flour, 25%KA wholewheat flour.All hand mixed! 24 hour cold ferment. I used a 9 ounce dough ball stretched out to 13 inches. Pizza was cooked on a Weber natural gas grill with a pizza stone on top of the grates. Stone was heated for 60 minutes and stone temperature was 580 degrees. Topping was low moisture WM mozzarella, sauce was a quick cooked tomato sauce. Pizza was dusted with Parmesian and fresh basil after coming off the grill. I find the gas grill/pizza stone combo works much better than oven cooking because there is no cycling on and off like there is with an oven. BTW outside temperature was 54 degrees and grill still held. It's even better in the summer with temps in the 90's."NoMemBrn
