My Pie Monday: Rum-Soaked Cherries and Lemon Zest, Foolproof Pan Pizza Extravaganza, and More!
And a hearty My Pie Monday to you, too! This week's 13 submissions have my stomach positively howling. Now you lucky bastards get to have a go.
Kenji's Foolproof Pan Pizza inspired some gorgeous pies from the likes of Kenposurf, Jamesws, GretchinF, and newcomer Alannaface. KevinMcG also joins team MPM, unveiling a vibrant Tikka Masala Pizza topped with mozzarella, chicken, and cilantro. Tscarborough goes all out with four different pies, including one featuring rum-soaked cherries and lemon zest over fresh mozzarella, finished with truffle oil. Woah. Garlic-marinated fresh mozzarella makes an appearance on a stunning pizza by way of jimmyg. Meanwhile, Norma experiments with three different types of pepperoni and Derricktung throws a pizza party, complete with a restaurant-worthy blackboard menu. bartonkt showcases a no-knead plain pie and Bloo works hard at perfecting pan pizza. Rounding out the group is BGEPizza, who takes a weather-induced hiatus from the egg with a kitchen oven Neapolitan-style pepperoni pie, and a Mellow Mushroom-inspired Portobello and Feta pizza from Florida9.
