Here are the results of the 4th Tampa Pizza Party. This one was hosted by Don AKA “Papageorgio”. All the pies were cracker-style patterned after Federici’s in Freehold, NJ. I assure you everything was authentic, as Don has spent an insane amount of energy and time replicating Federici’s recipe.
Here is a rundown of the photos and ingredients.
- Breads top to bottom: NY bakery style using KAAP by Bobino414, NY bakery style using Kyrol by Bobino414, Tardine Rustic Country by Straybullet
- Shrimp with scallions, fresh garlic, tomatoes, moz, romano, and olive oil
- Tomato with onion, basil, fresh garlic, tomato sauce w/ romano, moz cheese
- Tomato pre-bake
- Bratwurst and Jalapeno with moz cheese and tomato sauce with romano
- Cracker crust
Hopefully I captured everything accurately. If you have questions, refer to the proper chef. My only contribution was being the cameraman (and I ate more pizza than anyone else – some say by far, but I dispute that). Going into this meal, Don was the only guy committed to cracker-style pizza. Now I’m looking to buy a Federici’s T shirt, size XXL or larger. Bobino414, the chef behind more than 414 cheese-only pizzas, is adding shrimp/tomatoes/scallions to his next pie.
For others thinking about hosting a local party, I recommend it. This gathering was a cracker extravaganza, the previous party included a deep dish pie, a bananas foster desert pie, plus others. The next pizza party is being planned at Peter Taylor’s “Wood Fired Pizza”. Pete kindly offered to host and will cook whatever we bring in his wood fired oven.
