Aw, here, put some My Pie Monday on that Tuesday! We're back from President's Day with an array of 18 scrumptious pies to trigger your inner pizzaolo.***
First off, a warm welcome to a slew of new contributors! Suziey and Eric K. both join MPM with some classic Margheritas, and Moo102 comes to us with a first time EVER pizza! Kenji's Foolproof Pan Pizza continues to yield stunning results from the likes of harrycaul, Kenneth K, and Bloo. On steel, we have a cheddar pie from Florida9, a Quadruple Chili Threat-inspired pizza from imwalkin, and a jalapeño popper pie by way of Okaru.
Meanwhile, some intriguing combos emerge on the toppings front. Charliel7 brings us caramelized onions, sausage, and "yabbies" (it's an Australian thing!). Amusebouche1 gives roasted grapes, maple walnut, and goat cheese a shot, and goes from skeptic to believer. Oh, and pizza gets a sweet new 'do from Jamesws, who assembles some golden, buttery looking triangles.
Norma wows us yet again with a Detroit-style pie, this time graced with a 3 meat combo. On the other end of the spectrum, surcredibility shares a delicate pizza bianca with olive oil, fennel seeds, grated garlic, and sprinkle of pecorino. Jimmyg's recipe for success taps Sicilian sausage, Brussels Sprouts, and chili flakes, while Kenposurf whips out a rustic wholewheat pie. Last, but far from least, Millions whisks us off our feet with a perfect heart-shaped Valentine's Day pie. Shame on all the rest of you lackluster romantics! Good thing you make some damn fine pizza, or we'd have a real problem.

***A formal apology is owed to TXCraig1, as somebody left his pie out of this week's original post. His Detroit-style pie with jalapeños and bacon can now be found in the slideshow. Sorry, Craig!***
