Burning pistachios...
« on: March 03, 2013, 09:31:31 AM »
All,

I've been trying to recreate Bianco's Rosa at home, but have failed three times.  Every time I attempt this, the pistachios burn.  Have done pistachios dry as well as soaked in olive oil for a few minutes, and neither seems to work well.

I'm using baking steel with broiler method in a 550 oven.  Any thoughts or help on how to get this pie to come out right without burning the pistachios? 

I may try to drop the broiler tonight for this particular pizza, but am concerned that the top crust just won't "brown" up properly...

Thanks in advance!

Use them dry and add them mid-bake. Bianco adds them mid bake as well.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Thanks!  I was starting to wonder if that's how he did it.. glad to learn how it's done properly!
