Who likes anchovies on pizza?
« on: November 25, 2012, 09:31:41 AM »
It's just a question... :)
It's an Earth food. They are called Swedish meatballs. It's a strange thing, but every sentient race has its own version of these Swedish meatballs! I suspect it's one of those great universal mysteries which will either never be explained, or which would drive you mad if you ever learned the truth.

I do if they are good ones which for some reason always seem to come in glass bottles.

Here are a couple. The first pie is tomato, anchovies, olives, Calabrian chilies, and the second is cauliflower, garlic, anchovy, red pepper, and smoked EVOO.

Especially ones in glass that are rolled up.  The secret to anchovies is to get exactly the correct amount on the pizza.  Not enough it is blah, too many and it is dog food.

I love them but I rarely use them because nobody else in my family will eat them. My favorite is anchovies, mushrooms, and onions.

I chop them fine and put them under the cheese, they do not notice them , just like the pizza.  I can taste them, though.  I do have one daughter that likes them.

Spinach, anchovies, and olives. Now that's good pizza  :pizza:. Unfortunately most pizza shops use those pre-cut anchovies but we take what we can get.

Here's a little sample of our anchovy pizza:

Cream cheese, onions, olives, EVOO, a bouquet of herbs and thin lemon slices cooked with it.

I think the key to getting people to like anchovies is to get rid of the massive amount of salt on them.  I like to rinse mine before using.  Nothing like biting into a chunk of salt. Blah.

La Sera - That looks fantastic!
Making great pizza, outstanding beer and fantastic BBQ.  This is my passion!

Made my first ever pizza with anchovies today! Not bad for a change, though I still would say tuna is my preferred fishy topping...

There's a topping that I've never tried (tuna). Do you usually put anything on with it?

Strangely enough, corn niblets.

This is (apparently) a common topping combination in Germany, or so claimed a German roommate of mine a decade ago. I made her one then, but never tried to eat it myself until last year. I think I added some hot peppers in oil when I was eating it, but thought it quite good.

actually, I would rather brown the anchovies in a bit of butter and chunk up a bit and then fold into the sauce for a much tamer/nuttier taste with the little fishy fishies ;D

Not a big fan of anchovies on pizza.  I do like an anchovie paste to be used in caesar salad dressing.  Same with Olives, I don't like olives, but I really like an olive paste on sandwiches.
