Mustard Pizza after watching Pizza Cuz
« on: May 14, 2013, 09:57:00 PM »
Steve and I decided to try a “Mustard Pie” after watching the Pizza Cuz show last evening.  I had Roland's Extra strong mustard at market, so we just added some olive oil and water to the mustard and used a squeeze bottle to apply the mustard. 

I don't think we added enough cheese and sauce, but that pizza was surprisingly good.  We even tried a Detroit style pizza with mustard after the first pizza.  Somehow the mustard was good on this pizza and the Detroit style pizza.  I never would have thought to use mustard on a pizza that way if I had not watched Papa's making a “Mustard Pie”. 

My taste testers and a few customers also liked the mustard pie.

YaYYYYYY!!!!    Pizza looks excellent!!   Try mixing your mustard with equal part of mayo....this will tone it down, but it will have great flavor.  Sauce your pizza with the mustard just as if it were tomato sauce, and then try something like pepperoni and pineapple, or linguica with sauerkraut, or mushroom and beef.  I use 10 gallons of this type of sauce each week and its huge!!!!

No, no John. I think it is interesting that you go through 10 gallons a week of the mustard sauce and am just curious to who is eating this stuff. Norma is on the other side of the Country yet I have a feeling this sauce could possible be a hit there also. Interesting.

Dave,

Your ham and cheese on rye crust sounds interesting.  :P I am glad you liked your creamy mustard sauce on that pizza.  Sorry to hear you lost the link to the mustard sauce recipe.  :(

John,

I wonder if you can share what type or brand of mustard you combine with mayo.  If you can't that is okay.

That's a very interesting question Norma, only because I've been called from people all over the place wanting to know the secret.  Sometimes you give people the truth and it's so simple they think for sure you are pulling their leg.  We use the regular yellow mustard you get in any grocery store in the balloon yellow plastic bottle....except we buy it by the case of course.  We also add just a bit of black pepper.  Don't let the flavor of the sauce by itself fool you...it's when you get the perfect mixture of toppings that it all comes together!

I think that is really neat John.  :chef:
So then do you have a couple "specialty" pies with the correct topping combos on your menu where the customers can get this sauce?

The pizza below is called a Shotsy.  We created it quite by accident to serve during pizza month or pizza week or something like that.  It has mustard sauce, swiss cheese, mozzarella, smoked polish sausage, sauerkraut, and onions.  If I told you how much of this we sold, you would never believe me.  We also have 3 other specialty pizzas on the menu with this sauce, but the truth is, there are a lot of people who just don't like tomato sauce, and they use the mustard sauce on any pizza they order.

John,

Thanks so much for sharing how you make your mustard and mayo sauce.  I can believe people would think that was way too simple if you told them really how you make it.  Your experimenting sure is great in not only making doughs and then the final pizzas, but also your combinations of creative toppings.  I wish I lived closer to you so I could try your pizzas!  The Shotsy is a beautiful creation.   ;D

fazzari,

For the "Shotsy" (fitting name!) - I noticed you use a liberal amount of raw onions. I bet that has some nice bite to it. Do you offer the "Shotsy" with sweated/sauteed onions as well? I'm curious if any of your customer make this request.

In the over 25 years that we've made this, I've never had that request....and to be honest, we wouldn't have time to honor such a request anyway.  When we started this pizza, the onions were placed under the sauerkraut, which makes a prettier pizza.  But over time, we placed them on top, to make it easier to pick them off when our guests forget to request to leave them off.  They are put on before the bake, but 6 minutes in a 575 degree oven doesn't demolish them.  Also, as time has gone on, it seems to me that onions are much, much milder than they used to be.  Even an onion lover like me used to refuse to eat them in my favorite Chinese restaurant because they were so strong and hot....for some reason that has all changed.  Of course I'm in sweet onion heaven here, only 100 miles from Walla Walla.

I turned my oven down in temperature for all my bakes today and it seemed to work well.  This was John's Shotsy pizza Steve and I tried today.  It sure was quite good  ;D, but I didn't think to purchase any swiss to try on the pizza.

Yesterday I remembered to add Swiss cheese to the mustard and mayo pizza.  I also didn't use the cheese I am regularly am using and changed to skim whole milk mozzarella.  The one other thing that Steve and I did different was we added more Kewpie mayonnaise to the mustard and mayonnaise mixture that was made last week.  Last week we had used French's mustard, some Hellman's mayonnaise and some Kewpie mayonnaise.  So this week there was more mayonnaise than mustard as the sauce base.

The mustard and mayo pizza turned out totally different yesterday.  I used smoked Polish Kielbasa that I had purchased at a nearby market stand (the same sausage that was used last week).  I did change the kind of sauerkraut I used this week to a Homemade sauerkraut that I purchased at market from the Silver Floss sauerkraut used last week.  The Swiss cheese was also purchased at market and was a mild Swiss cheese.  I didn't know how the Swiss cheese would melt on the pizza, but it melted well in combination with the skim whole milk mozzarella.  The same onion was used on the pizza (Vidalia).

Last week the pizza that was made almost tasted like a hot dog with sauerkraut, mustard and onion.  This week the pizza tasted totally different.  The combination of everything made it taste like something I never tried before on a pizza and sure was a delight.  I am not sure if the different sauerkraut (which was much finer in cut, milder tasting and drier) was responsible for the totally different taste, or if the extra Kewpie mayonnaise added gave this pizza the totally different taste.  The pizza was very good in my opinion though.   

What also stumped me was how this pizza browned totally different on the bottom crust than any other of the pizzas I made yesterday with my regular dough balls that I used on the boardwalk thread.  The brownness on the bottom crust is what I would like to achieve in all of my pizzas, but can never do that.  That is a question for the experts in why the bottom crust browned totally different than last week, or totally different than any of my regular pizza made over the course of a day at market.  I know there are always mysteries about how pizzas brown on the bottom crust, but this pizza gave me pause to think about what might have been different that might have made the bottom crust brown differently.  The oven temperature was the same as last week and the bake time was about the same too.  This bottom crust has everything I want in taste, brownness and how it was crisp, at least for me.  Dang pizzas and trying to figure out what happened.  :-D It is a never ending journey and can lead you to a great pizza one time and then let you down the next time.    :o

John, thanks so much for your idea of trying a “Shotsy” pizza.  ;D It sure took me on a great pizza journey, even if it was only for one pizza.  I really liked this pizza.

I can't imagine that Papa's mustard pizza would be any better, but I sure don't know because I didn't try a Mustard pizza when Bill and I were at Papa's the other week.

In the last photo of the sauerkraut and Swiss cheese that is another pizza, not the "Shotsy" pizza.
