my favorite pizza recipe!

Saturday was pizza day. ****, we're getting good at this. my son nick can now consistently toss a THIN pizza. we tried some new combos.


1. assorted sausage, onion, tomato, tomato sauce, jalapeno and mozz
2. coppa, whole garlic, basil leaves and parm
3. bbq chicken (an old favorite)
4. chicken with basil cream sauce, whole garlic cloves, fresh basil leaves, mozz (this was the best - we're going to try the cream sauce next time with a seafood instead of chicken).


I precooked (fried) the garlic. the more pizza we make, the clearer it is that often the less (volume) you dump on the pizza, the better the pizza tastes. (its just so hard not to load it up though).

I would love to have a new pizza dough recipe if it’s something you could share.
I totally understand if it is a family secret.
btw, would not see your image.

Thanks, Nita

Hi Nita,

I would like to post images, but due to forum rules, it's forbidden since I'm a fresh member!

Ingredients

3 tbsp 35% cream

4 tsp grainy Dijon mustard

2 tsp regular Dijon mustard

1 1/2 tsp lemon juice

1/4 tsp honey

2 firm but ripe Bosc pears

Extra virgin olive oil

pizza dough, see link below

Pinch cayenne pepper

3 cups arugula, plus more for garnish

114 g crumbled blue cheese



Instructions


  • Make pizza dough.
  • Preheat oven to 500F. Place a large baking sheet in the oven and heat for 45 min.
  • Whisk cream with mustards, lemon juice and honey in a medium bowl. Reserve. Cut pears into 1/4-in. slices and toss with 1 tsp olive oil to coat.
  • Cut pizza dough into 2 portions. Roll 1 out into an oval and place on a sheet of parchment paper. Trim parchment so it’s just wider than dough. Brush dough with olive oil. Sprinkle with cayenne. Top with half of arugula and drizzle with more olive oil. Top with half of pear slices and half of blue cheese.
  • Remove hot baking sheet from oven and quickly transfer pizza and parchment paper onto it. Bake until edges are golden and crisp, 12 to 15 min. Transfer to a platter and garnish with additional arugula if you wish. Repeat with remaining pizza. Serve with mustard sauce.


This one is my favourite with pears and mustard, very unusual taste. Learned how to do it in a local restaurant next to my real estate in forte dei marmi

Garlic in pizza is new to me, and I wonder what it tastes like. Does it have a sharp smell you can't get rid of eventually? Fresh garlic on pizza can make a huge flavor difference. I expect to find garlic in a chicken casserole, soups, fish, and meat, but definitely not on top of pizza. Even the nearby pizza restaurants don't have that garlic pizza you are talking about.
