When you let your friend choose what kind of pizza you make...
« on: November 18, 2018, 07:22:02 PM »
Every time I make pizza for my friend Akshay, he wants to put every topping I have on every pizza. So finally I said, "Alright, come over tonight and we can put anything you want on every pizza".

So here are the topping lists for the four pizzas we made:

"Mexican"
Soy chorizo (we're vegetarian)
Jalapeņo
Shallots
Cholula
Doritos
Cilantro
Shredded mozzarella
Cheddar
Tomato sauce with chipotle, jalapeņo, cumin, paprika, lemon, garlic, oregano, cayenne, oil

"Korean"
Shredded mozzarella
Kimchi
Scallions
Eggs
Sriracha
Peppadews
Tomato sauce with garlic, oregano, cayenne, oil

"Italian"
Pesto
Calabrian chili
"Fresh" mozzarella
Green olives
Basil
Shallots
Tomato sauce with garlic, oregano, cayenne, oil

Everything
All of the above

But that's not all: Every pizza had a stuffed crust. For three of them, we cut the string cheese in thirds (hot dog style) before setting it around the edge of the dough. The "Italian" pizza got extra: the string cheese was just cut in half. For the Everything pizza, we topped the string cheese with pesto before folding the dough over it. (This actually made it so the dough didn't stay together very well.)

All in all, the pizzas were surprisingly good. The "Mexican" was the best. Both it and the "Korean" were actually excellent. I thought the Everything was too much, although Akshay liked it. But even he had to admit the "Mexican" was better.

Somehow my pizza stone cracked in the process of making these...guess they were too intense for it.

Wow. I'm actually not a topping guy, and eat/make plain cheese pizza. But these are awesome!

Ooh I like all those different green toppings! Beautiful.

Idea: one pizza for each color of the rainbow, where each pizza has several different toppings of the same color.

And then my friend Akshay would insist on a rainbow pizza that had all the toppings.
