Classic Margherita by Jenskanis

"A classic margherita from my regular oven. A classic Neopolitan dough, tipi 00 flour with a 2 day cold ferment, topped with buffalo mozzarella and fresh tomato sauce and a sprinkle of pecorino – the only thing missing are a couple leaves of basil. Baked at 575 degrees Fahrenheit. Jenskanis

OHenn's Polly-O Pizza

"Kenji's standard NY Dough and Sauce, Polly-O whole milk mozzarella, Boars Head natural casing pepperoni and some fresh basil. 3 day cold ferment followed by a 3 hour bench rise. Cooked at 550 in my oven on my new Baking Steel (courtesy of Serious Eats & Stoughton Steel giveaway!). The switch from my bargain stone to the Baking Steel has consistently yielded some of the best pies I've ever made." OHenn

"Rheinhart Napoletana dough (100% Caputo "00" Flour, 70% hydration), marinara sauce, dry mozz, spinach, mushrooms, local tomatoes, Romano, and a drizzle of truffle oil.  Cooked on a Kenji-style modified KettlePizza. This was the last pizza of the night, so the temp had dropped to around 700 degrees. Took just around 4 minutes." Florida9

BostonAdam's Spicy Bacon-Onion Pie
BostonAdam's Spicy Bacon-Onion Pie

"This pie is one of the most delicious I've ever made, and the first that I think looks good enough for a My Pie Monday. Topped with caramelized onion, bacon, low-moisture mozzarella, and a spicier version of Kenji's NY-style pizza sauce. Crust was a 75% hydration no-knead sourdough made with King Arthur AP flour. Two hour autolyze, then mixed and held in the refrigerator for four days (portioned and balled after 48 hours). Four minute bake on a piece of 3/4" aluminum plate at 550F, middle rack, using my oven's convection roast mode." BostonAdam

Dan's Skillet Pies
Dan's Skillet Pies

"I made eight pizzas using the "overnight straight dough" recipe from Ken Forkish's Flour, Water, Salt, Yeast and Kenji's skillet broiler method. Ken's recipe calls for five doughballs of 340 or so grams each, plus a pizza stone bake; instead, I made eight balls in between 200 and 250 grams, which fit perfectly in my 12" skillet. The pizzas came out great, and the dough has made me a believer in this phenomenal book. (It was my first attempt.) My favorite is on the right; homemade pickled peppers, anchovies, and a tiny bit of honey with mozzarella, crushed San Marzano, and olive oil." —Dan

PrimalPinoy's Inaugural Pie
PrimalPinoy's Inaugural Pie

"I grew up in the kitchen sautéeing, broiling, boiling, searing, frying, and steaming. It took 28 and a half years for me to do this. Today marks my first time:
1. Buying yeast
2. Making dough of any kind
3. Baking anything other than a whole bird
4. Making a pizza

Shiitake mushrooms, broccoli, red onion, chicken, bacon, mozzarella, asiago, and Parmesan. So good. THIS IS ALL KENJI'S FAULT." PrimalPinoy

Lux_Lisbon's Sweet Potato Tribute
Lux_Lisbon's Sweet Potato Tribute

"Here's my version of the Sweet Potato pizza from Federal Pizza in Phoenix. It's Kenji's NY dough rolled flat and cooked on the charcoal grill, spread with an oil/garlic/herb mixture and topped with parboiled sliced sweet potatoes, ricotta, fresh sage and mozz. Super good, but not as good as Federal's!" lux_lisbon
