My Pie Monday: Bird's Nest Pizza, Pulled Pork, RAMPS(!) and Much More!

It's My Pie Monday time, Slicer's! There's a great variety of pies in this week's line-up. Toppings are definitely a MPM stronghold, and this week is no exception. Bierebeer represents with a lobster, garlic, and scallion combo, Jamesws combines baby kale and grapes, onepercent99 uses some aware-winning pulled pork, and Hogletboglet finds a new favorite in the Asian-Moroccan flatbread. Of the season, there's an asparagus and prosciutto pie from jimmyg, TXCraig1's asparagus "Bird's Nest" a la Jim Lahey, an earthy leek and mushroom pizza from redwgn67, and, of course, RAMPS! from dhorst. There's an Adam Kuban related shout out in there, but that's not the only one. In response to last week's Home Slice, Imwalkin sent in a Memorial Meatball Pizza. Ev has the ol wood-fired oven turning out good old fashioned NY-style pepperoni pies, Norma is still tweaking her Sicilian pizza for the market, and Npinto has been busy baking focaccia and pizza. Amusebouche1's been working on Tomato Pie, but not the kind you'd find in Jersey. And last but not least, a big My Pie Monday welcome to SaucedTO, who used a combo BBQ/broiler method. More

It's another gorgeous My Pie Monday here at Slice! Seriously. Every one of these pies looks freakin' awesome.

Codfish30 and Forzapizza each created exemplars of the classic Margherita. Jamesws had a rendezvous with his in-laws pizza oven and has a killer arugula topped pie to show for it. Continuing her exploration in Greek territory, Norma427 experimented with low hydration pies and gives a glimpse here. And jimmyg and TXCraig1 have two extraordinary looking mushroom topped pies.

My Pie Monday: Arugula, Mushrooms, a Deep-Fried Pie, Chimichanga Pizza(?!?), and More

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. More
