Welcome back to My Pie Monday! There's a great group of pies here, folks! Norma and Jimmyg continue to explore the "epoxy method", Dmcavanagh gives the broiler a shot, and Thezaman makes some pizza bones that any dog (or master) would love.

At last, My Pie Monday! There are some freakin' incredible looking pies this week. There's lots of evidence of Slice'rs helping Slice'rs via past inspiration, advice, and collaboration. Dmcavanagh, Jimmyg, and Norma427 put their heads together on some dough experiments and the results appear here. Adam took some tips from TXCraig1, who also was the source of topping inspiration for Atmast (who, by the way, is soliciting some pizza stone advice.) Imwalkin represents with the Aleppo, which I'm sure fellow addict Dhorst would greet with a big thumbs up. She and newcomer Mitch Birrittella sent in pics of some drool-worthy grilled pies. Scott D's Margherita being pulled from his newly finished wood fired oven is sure to induce some Slice'r envy. And just look at how beautiful JEL's squash blossom pie is. Amusebouche1 makes a eye-catching pie with zucchini and cured meats, and hogletboglet makes a damn good case for how crave-worthy a simple pepperoni pie can be. After all the fried pie talk last week, it's great to see Thezaman's montanara. And last, but not least, livrefreeorpie works a very near and dear regional ingredient onto his pie.
This edition of My Pie Monday is a real mashup! We have Slice'rs making pies from other Slicer's, like dmcavanagh's rendition of Thezaman's Youngstown Sicilian from last week. There are Slice'rs making famous pies, like Norma's Cherry Jones, and Slice'rs turning two famous pies into one, a la Dhorst! Oh, and jimmyg throws a pie varietal mashup in the mix with his hybridized Sicilian-NY pie. Nice one! Both Thezaman and Bierebeer take a ride on the gluten free crust train—very apropos after the Domino's and Don Antonio coverage from Adam Kuban last week. BKMatt gets nostalgia with a bacon, egg, and cheese pizza in honor of the suburban breakfast sandwiches of his youth. Pizzabinge adds a little sweetness to his pie with a touch of honey, TXCraig1 dresses his Margherita up with some "extra stuff," and amusebouche1 fires up a "Four Seasons" pie. This week also includes Imwalkin's "best taste of the year," a mushroom, spinach, and herb pie from Hogeltboglet, and a first time submission from JEL!
Happy, My Pie Monday! The pie-making Slice'rs are on fire. Thezaman contributes a hyper regional Sicilian from Youngstown, Ohio, Dhorst is back in business with a new double-decker ovens, and Damian produced a "nearly-politan" with some dough formula tips from TXCraig1. Speaking of TXCraig1, he's falling hard for the Calabrian and Cheese combo. Norma427 produced her best Sicilian to date, and Npinto shares the topping collection pie from the end of a pizza-making evening. Another curtain closing pie comes from Livefreeorpie. The spring topping award this week goes to BKMatt with foraged fiddlehead ferns crowning his pie. Speck gets some play on pies from amusebouche1 and atmast. Redwgn67 lays down a fig spread on this week's pizza, jimmyg works Sambuca into his toppings, and KTC brings buffalo chicken and mac n cheese together on one crust. Bbb-ry is back with a Four Cheese and Mushroom pie, Bierebeer focuses on caramelized onions, and Imwalkin pairs Vidalia onions with pepper shooters.
Holy My Pie Monday! There's a whole lot of pizza making been going on. Pizza styles range from Norma's "Greek Goddess" to Thezaman's smoking hot VPN Margherita. Dmcavanagh even made a hybrid style—his Sfincilian. And wait'll you see what all Bierebeer piled on the 'Redneck Pie.' Dhorst worked out a grill hack to combat oven-less pizza making and TotesM'Gotes grilled some pies in order to get around a pizza stone-less vacation kitchen. Imwalkin met topping success with a long hot and capicola combo, and TXCraig1 discovered that putting the sausage on raw produces a superior pie. Bbb-ry made an all-time favorite Calabrian sausage and balsamic onion marmalade pie, and spicedham hit upon a new kind of supreme for his pizza making rotation. Speaking of successes, I even had my own in the fried pizza department. Check out these pies and more from: amusebouche1, hogletboglet, jimmyg, Redwgn67, livefreeorpie, and JKdrummer!
I've gotta hand it to you, Slice'rs—looking at these pies made me really hungry. The crusts are looking so awesome, and toppings seem so tasty. This might be one of my favorite My Pie Monday showings ever.
