My Pie Monday: Pizze Polacco, Country Ham, Rosas and More!
Happy first My Pie Monday of 2013! And it looks like we're off to a great start with lots of fresh new pizza makers in the mix, including derricktung (who promises this will be the first of many—we hope so), lux_lisbon, Brian Erst, MightyPizzaOven and jimmyg's bro Schroeder93! From the looks of it, pizza-making runs in the "g" family. Welcome aboard to the new contributors. In this edition, we also have Amusebouche1's electricity-less solution to making pies post Sandy, and kenposurf tackles veggie toppings with a little pre-bake saute. Jimmyg stands tall with his brother and shows off an asparagus topped pie, a topping that is echoed and applauded by mattivore on his Gioia-inspired asparagus and ricotta pie. Country ham and soy marinated shiitakes make crayfish2's pie sing and get his vote for "favorite topping ever!" Going outside the box as well, Imwalkin gives the Polish Pizza from L'asso a shot, but finds it a little out there. Another restaurant pie that continues to inspire is Bianco's Rosa, which gets double exposure by both JEL and newcomer lux_lisbon. SHole finishes off the last pizza of 2012 right with Aleppo, SDS, meatballs, pepperoni, and banana peppers and ACBova proves to be breaking in a new mobile WFO nicely with a homemade sausage pie.
If you're making pizza this week, send us a shot for next week's My Pie Monday!
Just take one snapshot of your homemade pizza, describe your cooking method (briefly!), and follow these instructions to get it to Slice HQ by 8pm EST on Thursday night. Be sure to let us know your Slice/Serious Eats screen name!
