Pizza! Pizza!

50 posts in this topic

Yum, who doesn't like pizza? I like to make my own:

preheat oven to 425

2 "snack size" whole wheat tortillas

extra virgin olive oil

pizza sauce

shredded "Italian blend" cheese

peckeroni

chopped green pepper

sliced black olives

sliced mushrooms

stack your two tortillas on a pizza pan and brush both sides with olive oil (tortillas make a delicious, thin, crispy crust)

pizza sauce to taste

top with cheese

strategically place your peckeronis around the pizza

green pepper pieces to taste

sliced black olives to taste

sliced shrooms to taste

stick it in the oven @ 425 until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly, about 8 minutes if oven is preheated. take out of oven and let cool a few minutes so the cheese sets a bit, slice and enjoy over and over again.

I just devoured two of these little guys and damn they're good! How do you guys build your pizzas?

Oh they're around. An old friend of mine works at one.

He was always some anti-capitalist, anti-government "Rage against the Machine" listener who made fun of me for "working" for the "machine"...

Well, I heard someone say he works in a Little Caesers in Ontario so I got the number of the place, called long distance to only laugh my ass off for 5 minutes when he answers the phone (I easily recognized his voice) and says "Little Caesers, Pizza Pizza"...

:lol: ... Guess you had to be there...

Stack the tortillas??

I'm assuming you're doubling them up to make the crust thicker, but how do you get them to stick together?

Best around here is from a little Italian place in town called Little Luigis. I have known the people a long time. Nothing is quite like theirs. They dont overdo it with the pizza sauce.

Mr. Y. Dart: yeah, I'm talking double thickness on the tortillas. gives it a nice foundation for the toppings. They stick together after it's baked with the toppings all gooey and hot.

I've tried making "proper" pizza with the dough and all that, but one of my favorites is with really good bread and simple ingredients.

Turn on toaster oven to "toast" setting

Cut Il Fornaio Slipper Bread (aka "Ciabatta"; from Trader Joe's) in half, remove some of the center

Toast bread until slightly crunchy

Spread pasta sauce on bread

Tear mozarella cheese and add

Get it back into the oven until the cheese melts slightly and the bread gets really crunchy

Add cherry tomatoes (cut in half) and basil leaves

Drizzle EV olive oil on top, particularly with garlic

Crack some black pepper on top

Enjoy

Um... I like pizza, but as far as making my own... meh, I'll pass. Pizza Hut for me. :P

Ugh... I've only eaten Pizza Hut a couple times and they really ought to include a complementary two dose bottle of Peptol Bismol along with the peppers and dips...

The day after I had eaten it, I spent most of my time taking a "porcelain cruise..."

Pizza Hut's ok, but I think Papa John's and Pizza Boli's are better.

A local chain in the Twin Cities is called "Broadway Bar". It's the best thin-crust pizza in the area. It's excellent.

Back to little Ceasars: they were a fav of mine just for their tv advertising. They have one of the best commercials I've ever seen. The commercial was advertising their "2 pizza's and a movie" deal, where if you purchased 2 pizza's from LC's, they'd throw in a coupon good for a free movie rental at blockbusters. The announcer on the tv ad was going on and on about how it was better than all of their previous deals. It was even better than their "2 pizza's and a perm" deal. The commercial then shows this family of four + the family dog, all with these super-tight perm (including the dog). The dad is chewing on a slice of pizza's while saying "it's gonna be tough to beat that one". It's laugh-out-loud funny.

empowah, your pizza sounds fantastic.

Harry, about 6.5" is just right.

Giordano's (sp?) - Chicago.  Best pizza I've ever had.

Quoted for truth, Giordano's rules. Plus, you can have it delivered anywhere, partially frozen.

In Berkeley, the good pizza was at Zachary's Chicago Pizza, the convenient pizza was at Blondie's. I like Costco pizza.
