My Pie Monday (Tuesday Edition): UnaVia Tries to Perfect the Unperfectable

We're going to play a game called "See If You Can Follow Along with This Post." Here goes: Pizzablogger, in the comments on Slice, asked UnaVia to send these pictures to him for post-processing, and then Pizzablogger passed them along to me. Says Pizzablogger: Adam, Please find attached two pictures for MPM taken by Slice'r UnaVia. These are a couple of pictures from the pizzas mentioned in the Olio e Piu comments thread.These snaps were taken with Unavia's iPhone and I color-corrected and cleaned them up.Unavia had the following to say about the pizzas...

I Am Picturing Pizzablogger's Workplace, and It Looks Like This

I just read this in the comments, and it makes even me scratch my head and then visualize a scene similar to what I just Photoshopped above: ... Lemons and blood oranges are in season. Think I'll try the lemon pizza and also a blood orange pizza tonight. The dough sitting next to me at work says it'll look flashy wearing bright citrus colors, so who am I to argue? Pizzablogger, why do you have dough AT WORK? You have truly taken pizza madness to the next level. (And do your coworkers know what you've got hiding under your... More

From the Mid-Atlantic with Love

But hey, (insert Stephen's voice from Braveheart here) "just answer the effing question already"....if pizza in Maryland is generally not that good, then what does some dude from Maryland know about pizza? A little bit is the correct answer. Sorry, but if you're looking for a pizza expert, you won't find one here. What you can be sure of is that I'll be happy to pass on whatever I learn as the mile markers on the pizza highway go passing by. And I have a voracious appetite for learning. More

I WANT This Pizza for Dinner

pizzablogger.org Pizzablogger says this version of his Sicilian pizza is "not quite where I want it just yet." Whatevs. If that's truly the case, I'll take a couple slices (one corner and one side-center) of imperfection. Look at the hole structure of that thing! And I second HollandJim's comment, "Ooooooooooh. Giiiiiiimmegimmegimme [that recipe]!"... More

'Pizza Blogger' Interview with Joe Edwardsen of Baltimore's Joe Squared

Speaking of pizza blogs, one that I've been enjoying immensely as of late is Baltimore-based Pizza Blogger. And this interview with Joe Squared's Joe Edwardsen (above) illustrates what I like about the site. "Pizza Blogger," as the anonymous author prefers to be known, asks Edwardsen a series of knowledgeable questions about Joe Squared's coal oven and the dough-making process. The questions are obviously informed by PB's experience working at D.C.-area bakery Uptown Bakers. PB's knowledge and passion shines through in all his posts. I come away from the site with the feeling that the entries are well-researched and trustworthy.... More
