Want to try something new.....
« on: August 03, 2004, 09:00:20 PM »
Haven't been in the pizza making mood recently, but have been doing more Q (BTW Qers get over to pitcooking.com and post) and even some grilling.  

Anyways, back to pizza.  Got my Chicago the way i like it.  (Although I need a new scale to get the final messurements).  My New York is pretty good as well as my Itialian style.  The thin crust is also good.  So now what?

I mean I'll always tweak the others as is my nature, but what should I do that is new?

You must next master the stromboli, my young jedi knight
with the unlimited fillings that allow this creation to reach out of the pizza boundrys into the ever single night of the week dinner table.

The pork and ground beef stromboli great for a family meal ;D

The Mexican taco stromboli for those not weak of stomach ;D

The apply pie stromboli  Gotta try this one myself ;D

Brekfast egg and bacon stromboli ;D

I've got a new Chicago recipe in the cooler for tonight indicating my Chicago is still not done.  My thin crust is illusive being different from most and still needs work but I keep plugging away.

DKM why not come up with your own unique pizza.  A DKM Special.

Sure!

I saw something like it on a Foodnetwork show in Italy and I'm adding my own twist.

Funny you mention her, I watched her this past weekend, - she's cute in a strange sort of way, - I love the way she smiles, and makes expressions when she tests out her food at the end of her cooking show, or on $40 a Day when she tried something - I've never seen somebody love food so much - the way she shows her appeciation for it, I get a kick out of it, she just makes me also want to taste it.  8)

I've never been a big fan of cross over pizza.  Not sure why.

Here's a picture of what I think is Calzone, or at least my interpretation of it.

I generally make two types of pizza - one has a thick crust and is based on focaccia and the other uses the same dough but is rather thin and round.  Since I've lived mainly in Texas and California, the terms Chicago deep dish and New York Style don't have a lot of meaning for me, and I'm not really sure what they are.  Also, is thin crust a very specific thickness?  In San Francisco, I used to get a thick crust pizza that was called "Sicilian style", but I assume that's different from Chicago.  I tend to make pizzas rather than have them in restaurants, but there is one place, Abbot's Pizza, down the street from me in Venice, that makes a thin crust that they call "Bagel dough".  It is very crisp - almost like a cracker.
