Spinach and San Marzano
« on: March 26, 2012, 01:35:28 PM »
My favorite and always the crowd pleaser
Baby spinach wilted in garlic flavored canola oil
San Marzano tomatoes and some thinly sliced mozz on the bottom.
170 gram balls....thin and just crispy enough
My homage to Taconnelli's

That looks great!
 I keep telling myself I'm gonna get to Taconnelli's one of these days. :)

That looks great. I think I'll give it a try, but I'll probably have to add some bacon. I don't think my body will digest spinach without bacon.

And, with that , 5 generations off tradition go up in a puff of bacon smoke.

Seriously though, I can't imagine bacon and garlicky spinach working.

Really? One of my favorite side dishes is spinach wilted in bacon fat and garlic.

Sorry, but when I think of a great Neapolitan pizza I think of just a few subtle flavors and just a few toppings .

Nothing subtle about bacon grease..but to each their own.

I wasn't suggesting bacon grease on the pie; rather a few small pieces of bacon.

Bacon for sure

I'm all for what makes a pie taste yummy... not tradition.  Don't get me wrong I like and GET the classics but with every bake I do some off the wall pies... some great... some not so much, but in my feeble mind you have to keep trying to know what is great.... not just what  some Italian tradition tells me. 

one of my favs though is roasted Hatch green chile, bacon, mozz with a sprinkle of fresh ground pepper.  That is a match in heaven!
