Your top-10 pies?
« on: November 04, 2012, 05:49:51 PM »
What are your top-10 pies? Any style. When I sat down to think about it, it was harder than I thought it would be to put the list together.

Here are mine:

1. Margherita (w/ mozzarella di bufala) or Spicy Margherita (w/ Fior di latte, Aleppo, and Calabrian chilies) No parmesan or pecorino on either.
1(tie). Mozzarella di bufala, chives, evoo, sea salt (credit: dellavecchia)
1(tie). Clam no cheese (,17383.msg168880.html#msg168880)
4. Mozzarella di bufala, Brussels Sprouts, pancetta, garlic, parm, evoo (credit: Motorino)
5. Dry whole milk mozz, Pepperoni (VT), and jalapenos
6. Fior di latte, spicy sopressata, garlic, red chili flakes, fresh oregano
7. Mozzarella di bufala, fresh mushroom slices, parmigiano-reggiano ,and white truffle oil
8. Fior di latte, spicy fennel sausage, dried cranberries plumped in white rum, red pepper flakes, honey, basil
9. Asparagus birds nest with blue cheese+mascarpone or lemon and egg or prosciutto.
10. Tomato thinned with evoo, dry WM mozz, aged white cheddar, black pepper

1. Mushroom, hot Italian sausage, bell pepper, sauce and mozz on a rectangular medium thick pan dough. (grew up eating this in upstate NY)
2. Hot Italian sausage, mozz, ricotta, on a thin crust with tomato sauce and Sriracha Sauce. The dabs of creamy ricotta balance the spicy sauce.
3. Plain Cheese Pizza. Just good, gooey mozz cheese on a large, thin, foldable slice.
4. Pesto, basil, few dabs of tomato sauce, shrimp, mozz, feta, garlic.
5. Roasted garlicy Brussels Sprouts, caramelized onion, ham, tomato sauce, topped with mozz.
6. Roasted garlicy Brussels Sprouts, cashew and basil "hummus", and shrimp, topped with mozz.
7. Detroit Style pepperoni.
8. Ham and mushroom...both roasted beforehand in an oven to remove liquid and intensify the flavor.
9. Ham and pineapple.
10. any of the ones you listed! I have yet to try making a clam pizza but will soon.

My lastest favorite pizza is on page 26 of my thread. If your too tired to prep all the ingredients, then make the pizza listed below it. Both pizzas are very tasty, but the first pizza rules.,17415.500.html
