What kind of piza do you want to bake, and what sort of oven(s), grills, etc. do you have available?

I have a Le Panyol wood fired oven. I like meaty recipes. I have a house full of boys that love bacon, hamburg, etc. But I love to incorporate different flavors that either compliment or give new flavor to the meat pizza!

If your looking for creative, try the monthly challenge board.

Buceriasdon went ape %$# with the Asian challenge, on of my favorite threads here...

But they are all good.

Somewhere TXCraig does this mushroom pizza which is also wicked sick. I seriously think you could build a business on serving just that one pizza.  ;)

 If Jackitup from MN reads this. He may have an opinion. Pizza luce is a local joint. They make a "Cheeseburger" pizza. Sauce is equal parts ketchup, and yellow mustard. Ground beef, and diced dill pickles. Cheese blend up to you, but the sauce/beef/pickle thing works. in my opinion.

Not my favorite pizza on earth, but it does work.

A couple of our "meaty" favorites are 1) Mushroom and White Truffle Oil [that SinoChef noted above], and Brussels Sprouts and Pancetta. You're probably laughing at me right now as neither of these sounds very meaty, But I'd encourage you to give them a try.

The mushroom and white truffle is my youngest son's favorite pie, and he is the biggest carnivore you're ever meet. He pictures a knife and fork next to every animal he sees. You can't take him to the zoo, because he just talks about what the different animals would taste like. You get the idea. The pies is topped with fresh mozz, sliced fresh cremini mushrooms, fresh ground black pepper, and grated parmigiano-reggiano (don't use cheap Kraft parm). After the bake, drizzle on some white truffle oil. Using fresh mushrooms with the truffle oil gives it a meaty sort of flavor. It's an incredible pie.

For the sprout pie, cut the bottom off of and core 8-10 Brussels sprouts then peel off the leaves. You need a pretty big handful - more than you would think. Top the pie with fresh mozz, some grated parmigiano-reggiano, the Brussels sprout leaves, chopped pancetta (I get it sliced thin at the deli then cut it up into little squares), thinly sliced garlic, and a drizzle of evoo then bake. I have a nephew that won't eat vegetables and he begs for this pie whenever he comes over. The sprouts get a little char on the tips giving the pie a smoky flavor that is beautiful with the salty, porky pancetta. For a long time, this was my favorite pie.

Enjoy.

Do you saute your mushrooms before they go on the pie or do you apply them raw? How thick/thin do you slice them. I'm not crazy about mushrooms on pizza, but I have a friend who is.

Oh my goodness do these pizzas look good! I am definitely going to be trying them this weekend when we have a group of friends coming over. Thank you so much for taking the time to not only make me drool with the pictures, but also give me the breakdown. Delish!!

Unless you make it yourself, Truffle oil has not been "in' since circa 05. 08. Not sure when the cut off was. But the kids that sit at the cool table will have nothing to do with it.

Just sayin...

Rat + Ass = what I could give in the current gastronomy community.

To quote Bourdain.... Does it taste good?

No. I don't pre-cook them. I like the fresh meaty taste of the raw. I slice two different thicknesses that way some get more cooked and you both cooked and more meaty fresh flavors on the pie. The thin slices are maybe 1/8" or a little less and the thick are 3/16" I'd guess.

That's not an issue because the Garage does not deliver to the cool table.

 ;D ;D  Pizza is one  thing I have to get correct here man.

Mario decided enough was enough. We over used it and destroyed a good thing.

And, I think he was correct in calling it. It went south real quick.

And I believe he would waddle up to your garage and eat the %$# out of any one of your pizzas.

Even if the "community" decided we could no longer pour truffle oil over our risotto.

Cool table or not, truffle oil or not, I would be more than happy to sit at that table with quality of pies being served to it... and the wine as well.  ;D

To date, my favorite dough formula is, without a doubt, the formula that Norma and I are working with, on the Epoxy thread. The flavor and textures of the crust and crumbs coming out of that method incredible. My favorite topping combo is, hands down, cubed heritage bacon (dry cured) and shaved asparagus doused with Ardbeg or Peat Monster Scotch whiskey. The flavor is hard to sum up, but it literally tastes like your camping in the woods.  I know it sounds a little goofy for a pizza, but the flavor combo is excellent.

My wife usually keeps hers where you see the table. I slide it over to the right. Mine lives in the driveway.
