We love pizza, and fix it often. As far as methods, depending on circumstance, we use:
- A wood fired outdoor pizza oven - mainly for fun because I've not developed my skill set long enough, but it will cook a pizza in 90 seconds as long as I time it properly
- Gas grill - when we want thin extra crispy crust - very easy to use and makes perfect pizza every time
- Indoor regular oven - when the weather is too bad outside
As to toppings, the sky is the limit - we like to think of pizza crust as the vehicle to bring all kinds of tasty toppings to our mouths
Here's one that we found delicious because we like deli sandwiches:
We like both Reuben sandwiches and pizza so we thought "why not?" and built our first Reuben pizza. I know... sounds a bit weird at first, but it is actually quite good, and a different flavor profile than the typical pizza - meaty and savory in a way not seen in the typical pie.
Here's the parts list:
- Corned beef (smoked at home), thinly sliced, then roughly chopped
- Swiss cheese
- Homemade base sauce containing mayo, mustard, finely diced pickles, and a bit of pickle juice
We did this one on a stone in the home oven at 450F. Thin crisp crust is our favorite.
The result was excellent, and we will make this one again - combines the best of our favorite deli sandwich and the thin crust we love
