Pretty Pies
« on: March 07, 2014, 12:28:03 PM »
I propose a challenge to make the most visually appealing pizza. Taste aside, just the best looking one you can make. I work at a crappy pizza shop so.... good quality is NOT an option...

My favorite appearance-wise since I'm a bubble-lover. Wish I had taken the picture before the cheese started to cool down.

Thanks for the compliment!
Here's another one of the same pie toppings from this past weekend.
And I'll throw in a pizza marinara because I like the shape...

You already know how much I like that pie of yours in Reply 4, and that marinara is not far behind.

Is that a balsamic reduction on there? I tried doing that a few days ago but I just could not stand the smell.... and I was using very poor quality stuff. Any tips?

Thanks Craig!
As I've seen from your pizza summits, the best part of small pizza parties is you can take your time, have fun, chase the perfect pie, and also freestyle with ingredients a bit.
What's funny is you'll notice that the prosciutt' isn't well distributed on this new pic.  The party included several with dietary restrictions.  I had one that couldn't eat garlic (!!), a couple that couldn't eat pork, one that wouldn't eat chicken or pork...so I had to keep track of that as I went.  I used sliced cherry tomatoes as "safety cones" on the pies to mark off "safe zones!"
Finally, I'm still trying to get a margherita pic that can come anywhere close to the one you posted!!

Yep - but I'll admit, it's not from scratch.   ::)

That's Fresh & Easy's* balsamic drizzle!
I'm not much of a standard vinegar fan, but I tend to like balsamic.
This stuff is like candy - really nice flavor, texture, and adds a nice sweetness to counter the peppery arugula.

*Not sure if you have Fresh & Easy in Michigan...it's a chain of small supermarkets and I find their quality is pretty good!

Wow, that pie looks incredible! The spring and color are amazing. Tell us a little about it. Dough recipie? oven temp? looks like it was cooked on steel.   Love the color. Looks like it has sugar in the recipie.

This isn't the prettiest pie ever... but it was delicious.

1 day starter, 2 day cold rise dough.

Garlic Dijon butter in place of sauce, red onions, jalepenos, sausage (went on raw), medium cheddar, my homemade garlic/chile oil and parmesean/spice blend.

The notable part was I only let my oven pre-heat for 30 minutes.... and it was cooked on a 12 dollar pizza stone... not bad ay? Kinda ugly...  and my camera sucks... but delicious!
