A slice of the future

As the title suggests this is my first post but it certainly won't be my last. This is the first pizza I made, I won't get into the specifics of the dough (as my recipe is quite unique and employs a rare blend of flour, water and yeast). The cheese is a combination of part-skim mozzarella and some shredded Monterrey jack, also as soon as I removed the pizza from the oven I used a carrot peeler to shred off some chunks of romano cheese. I look forward to my second attempt at this as on the first go around I didn't have a pizza paddle and was relegated to rolling the dough out on the counter, placing it on a deformed cookie sheet, and then used a combination of a large spatula and my hands to pull it from the sheet onto the stone in the oven.

Hopefully within the next several weeks and months I'll have some new dishes to post and perhaps a more detailed pizza post (as I do consider myself something of an aficionado). With that being said it's good to be on the blog and I look forward to showing ya'll the simpler side of collegiate cooking.


  1. Pizza man, do you ever grill your pizza? I love homemade pizza and prefer to grill it (in a grill pan on the stove top) and finish it off under the broiler.

  2. matt and i LOVE making homemade pizza. i made a bangin vegan one once that i still dream about (vegan cream cheese, mesclin greens, cherry tomaters, daikon, and maybe some other stuff) it was awesome. hey guys, lets make pizza soon! DYMS 2011 festivities?

  3. Pizza man, I reread your blog post and saw that it was your first time making pizza. My bad - congrats! I do suggest grilling in the future. It will change your life.
