What do you think of these toppings
« on: August 27, 2014, 08:05:21 AM »
Hi guys

I would like to get some ideas on what to call this pizza:
Pesto base, sundried tomato,artichoke, spinach, red onion slices, slices of kalamata and feta
One more thing , what do you think i can add to cut the saltiness of the toppings?

Thanks

That's a lot of strong flavors ( I do like all of them ) and toppings for one pizza.  Unless you are willing to omit the olives or the feta,  then I would think that keeping those two ingredients to a minimum will reduce the saltiness.  Maybe even a quick rinse on the olives.

stonecutter:how about using goat cheese instead of feta ? and how about drizzling the baked pizza with some balsamic or pomegranate molasses glaze ?

I'm a goat cheeseaholic, that sounds great.  I'm thinking you have sweetness with the sundried tomatoes, so I don't know if a sweet finishing glaze is going to balance the savory...a little drizzle might be the thing you're looking for.  Pesto has some strong flavor too, so less is more sometimes.

Is this California-ish-style pizza popular in your area or is this your niche?

Like any other niche, some folks will like it and others wont. Assuming there are enough who do, just make the best pizza you can.

Try to have some continuity woven through everything you do. Customers don't like to be confused.

I just called them and the said it's for the most part, a seasoned olive oil with garlic and Italian seasonings. Not a fan of their pies in general but I like this one, very good, don't really miss the meat on it
