Let's Take a Trip to Buenos Aires!
The Buenos Aires pizza plays with the classic Argentinean combination of chimichurri and beef. Commonly served grilled or braised in platter or sandwich form, this flavor combination is perfect on a pizza.
Stretch It Out
The dough at Los Angles Pizza Company goes beyond the basic water and flour dough. Tender, with a hint of sweetness, Oscar stretches it thin and wide like a New York style pie.
Thick with parsley, garlic, and oregano, spread the chimichurri sauce as evenly as possible. You can add as little or as much are you want, according to taste.
Sprinkle the Cheese
Cover the face of the dough with a loose scattering of shredded mozzarella. Don’t worry about getting it on the edges; it just makes it taste better!
Next, layer the pizza with sliced cremini and shiitake mushrooms. Dot the top with medallions of sausage.
Into the Oven
Into the 550 degree oven it goes! At Los Angeles Pizza Company, the pie cooks on the stone for 6 minutes and is finished on a screen to get the topping cooked through. When it comes out of the oven, the crust gets a nice brush of extra virgin olive oil.
The Final Touch
The pie is finished with a large pinch of basil chiffonade and a few whole leaves. I know you want to jump in, but let it cool for a few minutes before devouring. You don’t want to burn your mouth…. okay… now you can eat!
