Kick off your week right with some glorious My Pie Monday inspiration. We've got quite the hunger-inducing line-up today, with a whopping 18 pizzas fresh from the oven.
'Burger365' on Serious Eats
Happy very eclectic My Pie Monday! No two pizzas are alike in this 15 pie roundup. From newcomer AMLewis' Dutch oven cooked pie to the Daily Slice-inspired "Mootzaleppo" by Imwalkin, you Slice'rs are demonstrating some serious diversity and creativity—but no surprise there. Norma and Ev spent some time firing pizzas in Ev's wood fired oven and were met with what looks like great success. Atmast has been saving up some sous vide Corned Beef that she used on her Irish pie, whereas Bierebeer opted to go the barbecue brisket route. There's a Rosa a la Chris Bianco from Burger365, and a hazelnut and date pizza from Redwgn67. Tupper Cooks! finally got to try out cheese curd as a topping, and Tscarborough submits his all-time favorite jalapeño and pepperoni topped pie. There's some mushroom pie advice from TXCraig1 and amusebouche1 revisited the southern inspired tomato pie. There's also a tomato and garlic pie from BHkitchen, a smoky mozzarella and broccoli rabbi by maxcriden, and a whole slew of pizzas from forzapizza.
While there weren't any Peepzas this My Pie Monday, we did get some Pizza Bunnies, thanks to Norma. Overall, this seemed to be a good week for playing around with new dough formulas. Andrew Janjigian, Imwalkin, ccd2012, and livefreeorpie all worked on variations of the Lahey No Knead method, and Norma and Atmast revisited their new formulas from last week. Dmcavanagh made a change to his dough as well, but in terms of size rather than formula. While there were a lot of Lahey-like pies, other big name doughs got some representation too. Hogletboglet worked with a Reinhart dough, and Burger365 built a pizza on a Nancy Silverton base. A pair of pies from the most recent Tupper Lake Pizza Night were sent in by Tupper Cooks! and Dhorst. (By the way, the aleppo "crack" epidemic spreads beyond the Dhorst territories, into Imwalkin's neck of the woods.) Embracing baseball season, billgraney made a B.A.T pie with bacon, arugula, and Tomato. And amusebouche1 did some spring cleaning and created a cheese drawer salvation pie. In the vein of 'toppings you didn't know you needed to try' we have the ever excellent brussels sprouts and pancetta pie from TXCraig1 and a Tuna and Onion pie (referenced by Bitchin Fixins in the comments of that post) from newcomer onepercent99. Keep up the awesome work everyone!
Summer is coming on in a big way and it shows on My Pie Monday. Garden grown basil makes an appearance on Burger365's pie, and cherry tomatoes appear on pizzas by dhorst and Norma427. Jamesws gets the grill going for pizza and I take a pizza for the grill indoors. The flavors of summer arrive in the form of barbecue chicken from Kitchennoob, and a chili cheese dog topped pie from Amusebouche1! The ladies at Passion4pizza "keep it simple" with a white pie and Chef Snausy makes cast-iron skillet pizza.
Wow. This week's batch of My Pie Monday entries is full of traditionally awesome and awesomely nontraditional pizzas. Arugula seems to be on the brain — maybe it's a way to wish spring into being — and we see it on Alberto's, Scott D.'s, and BillCBP's pies. Some great mushroom pizzas in the bunch too, which brings to mind foraging in the woods, which is what I think Jamesws did for the fungi on his pie. And then there's Norma with deep-fried pizza and Girl Loves Pizza with a chimichanga pie. Other great-looking entries from Tupper Cooks, Burger365, joeindc44, Norma, Robert in Dallas, Ev, thearrogantchef, tom100, and Tscarborough.
This week's pies are glorious-looking as usual—I'm especially drawn to the toppings: Bill SFNM has a beautiful pizza loaded with vanilla-sauced shrimp, Bartonkt is rocking the Frankie's meatballs, James S went with mac and cheese, and Amusebouche1 has a whole Creole thing going on. Plus, we've got awesome pies from Frizzaldo, Tupper Cooks!, Burger 365, Olsonmatt, Phidauex, Norma427, and Jean B.
This week, Slice'rs cooked some awesome-looking pizza...on some crazy-looking ovens. First up: Crayfish experiments with cooking pizza in a pottery kiln. Then we've got BiereBeer with a bacon-and-Brussels-sprouts pie cooked in an old wood-fired oven. (Bonus oven shot included.) And Ronzo is using a homemade Little Black Egg pizza oven.
This week, we've got a luscious-looking artichoke-topped pizza from Heidirobb, a mascarpone-filled delight from Norma427, Chicago-style stuffed pizza from Gregg, and a banh mi pizza from Amusebouche1. Plus, awesome pies from Emilydev, Burger365, BiereBeer, Joe H., Olsonmatt, Troutdogz, and Tupper Cooks!
If you're thinking of making pizza for your sweetheart on this Valentine's Day, you've come to right place. Here's a great gallery of inspiration from your fellow Slice'rs, complete with a spicy taco salad pizza from Tscarborough, a gorgeous breakfast pie from Amusebouche1, and a pizza topped with homemade bratwurst from BiereBeer. (We better see some heart-shaped pepperoni next week.)
I'm kind of surprised there aren't any pizzas topped with towers of buffalo wings this week! Still, we have some fun pizzas for this week's My Pie Monday, including a crazy yellow Margherita from Scott D, a Japanese pizza from hmw0029, and a crust that's made with pecan flour from Norma427. Plus, great contributions from Burger365, Cookhacker, Amusebouche1, Rick C., James S., Dhorst, Adam Kuban, and Gregmcg.
