  • Pizza......its what's for dinner!
Brad,

I'd say they were NY style.  You're end crust is huge though.  If u like it that way then don't change a thing, otherwise press it out thinner on the edge.

This is a pizza I call #42.  It has garlic, blue cheese, fresh tomato, chopped basil, and chili oil.

Is there mozzarella on there as well?

Yah, well, I thought so! 

Tell me more about that blue cheese. Sounds great but how'd you arrive at that combo? Do you put it on at beginning of bake? Same question re: toms.

I'm gonna make one of them for Easter Dinner!

Hi John,

For this pie I use sauce made from fresh tomatoes.  The mozzarella cheese, chopped garlic and crumbled blue cheese go on before going in the oven for baking.  When the pizza is finished baking, I top it with the fresh tomatoes and place it back in the oven for about 10 seconds.  When it comes out, I add the basil and chili oil. 

I was just playing with different combinations of toppings that involved the use of fresh tomatoes put on at the end of baking.  I don't like when fresh tomato is placed on a pizza before baking.  It always turns to mush if it's in the oven that long.  After a bit of trial and error, I came to this.  We just love this one, and the name is inspired by the book "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy".

That's the best description I've found for this pizza...

Kirk,

Well thanks for that detail! I am going to try it next week. It's a great recipe, but even more importantly, beautiful execution! Am I remembering correctly you are doing this commercially in Thailand? I have some friends somewhere over there..... I'll have to send them your way!

Thanks again and kudos!

John,

We have a small pizzeria in the city of Lampang.  It's about 100km from Chiang Mai in the North of Thailand.  Here's a link to our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/longjimpizza.  We love when real pizza lovers come in.  Thais are not very adventurous when it comes to pizza.   They usually order the most boring pizzas on the menu. 

I hope your daughter gets well quickly so you can get out and make some turns!!  Skiing is something I left behind when I moved to the tropics.
