We've probably all heard of he song "American Pie" from Don McLean right? Ever wonder what the lyrics really mean? Here's the chorus from the song: (sing along if you like)
They were singing,
"bye-bye, miss american pie."
Drove my chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.Them good old boys were drinkiní whiskey and rye
Singiní, "thisíll be the day that I die."
Look at the lyrics and it becomes obvious that "Them good old boys" were "cruzin and boozin" and most likely filling their gullets with an American classic rye pizza. I just hope they had a designated driver! ba-doom, ba-doom!
The song and lyrics gave me the inspiration to tackle another American classic pizza made with 1/3 stone ground rye flour. I made a rye sourdough preferment and let the dough counter rise for 8 hours. I cooked them in the Little Black Egg for 3 1/2 minutes.
Why rye? Rye not?..........Villa Roma
