Uhhhhh....

Hello?

Someone being lazy about posting last night's STELLAR pie pics?

Spoiler Alert:        They were awesome 19 inch NY (Apizza Scholls) style. We were cooking for my son's Lacrosse team so we needed BIG PIES!!!!

I'm a little late to this party, but those pies look amazing.  I especially like that they are a mess on top and I can't pronounce most of the ingredients.  Your creativity is a new level for me.  Let me know when the NC pizza party is scheduled.

Pizza at Serpentelli's house this weekend. He's a gracious host with a beast of a wfo.
I hadn't tossed an 18"-20" pie in 25 years...Until Saturday night.
Lots of pizzas made...and eaten! We had 600g and 325g doughballs.

I brought some Apizza Scholls dough from the recipe here;
http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,11994.msg124161.html#msg124161

Just a few pics:
1. Mortadella, Hot Coppa, Aged Mozzarella, Parmigiano Reggiano, Pistachio Pesto (Apizza Scholls dough)
2. Pizza Bianca; Garlic Oil, Fresh Mozzarella, Aged Mozzarella, Fresh Ricotta, Ricotta Salata, Parmigiano Reggiano and Basil (Apizza Scholls dough)
3. White Clam Pizza; Garlic Oil, Sicilian Oregano, Parmigiano Reggiano, Diced Pancetta and Clams

Those look fantastic, Mmmph.  Must have been a fun evening.  I'm a big fan of the Apizza Scholls recipe too.

It says a lot about a guy's dedication to and passion for pizza when he agrees to cook pizza for 15 lacrosse players and their families, none of whom he's ever met!

Two "givens" when mmmph shows up at your house for pizza night:

1. His dough is going to be perfect
2. His topping selection (and prep) is going to be artisinal

I sure am glad to have him as a friend, neighbor, and yes, mentor!

Hopefully the ratio of adults:kids will be greater at the next gathering! But those boys sure did put down a few LARGE pies!!

Shrimp and chorizo will be on my next menu. Perhaps with some sorrel oil.

Some time ago, I made a dish with octopus and chorizo sauteed with lots of garlic and then finished with sorrel oil - it was really good.

It's been a while, but I think I flash-blanched the sorrel then pureed it with evoo and some sea salt then strained it out.

Is it a lemony flavor? I've never had it and there's zero % chance I'll get it here in Wilmington!

Oh jeez Brady just fumbled. Our O-Line Suuuuuuuuuks!!! 6 minutes in.....17 points down :(

Sort of - bitter - a bit citrusy. I planted some in the garden a few weeks back. Hopefully I didn't eat it all in salads.

I was at the playoff game vs Baltimore 2 or 3 years ago when it was just about as cold, and they were down by just as many points as they are now. And they lost.... :(

Nice and warm here inside in NC!

Warm inside in NJ too.  I sent them packing with some hand warmers and I heard that the 3 of them had a blanket.  But I'm sure hubby won't admit that to me.  Glad this seems to be a good game for your Pats.  And I'm happy my boys beat the G-aints >:D

LAST PIZZA PARTY OF THE YEAR WITH SERPENTELLI

Well, John (Serpentelli) decided to have one last pizza event at his house on Christmas eve.
There was a good crowd and we made 18 pizzas, including two gluten free that John made for a guest.
There was all kinds of food, drinks and sweets. A good time was had by all.

It was in the low forties, but John had couple tall patio heaters, as well as his fire pit.
I wore shorts....

Pizza pics in no particular order. Again, apologies for the crappy iPhone pics.

1. Pepperoni
2. Pepperoni 2
3. Pepperoni Jalapeno
4. Ham, Onion, Oregano
5. Two Cheese

It would seem that great looking pizza makes even crappy iPhone pics look good  ;D
