We have a number of new Pizza-Porta users out there thanks to some discerning Santas.  To get you started on developing your pizza craft, I have listed ten pizza recipes for idea starters.  I have also listed a few tips for getting started creating your own pizza combinations. 10 - Fig - EVOO base, dabs of Fig preserves, pecans, goat cheese and fresh mozzarella.  After removing pizza from the oven garnish with arugula and a bit of balsamic glaze.

9 - Margherita - Tomato sauce base, fresh mozzarella, tomato slices, a few basil leaves

8 - Four Cheese.  EVOO base, fresh mozzarella, cheddar, asiago, garnish with parmesan (or choose other cheese combinations)

7 -Veggie - Mushrooms, glazed onion, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes

6 - Sausage and mushroom - Browned sweet Italian sausage either crumbled or sliced, glazed onions, mushrooms

5 - Seafood pizza - EVOO base, fresh mozzarella, raw shrimp in small pieces, bacon.

4 -Bacon and egg - Use either Italian bacon (Prosciutto) or your favorite thick cut (precooked), fresh mozzarella, and place a small raw egg toward the center sunny-side up. Spinach is a great garnish raw or cooked.

3 - Chicken wing pizza - Use wing sauce as a base coating, add blue cheese and mozzarella, dark meet chicken, and a few glazed onions

2 - BBQ Chicken - BBQ sauce base. cheddar and mozzarella, chicken, bacon, red onions, garnish with cilantro

1  - Chicken Rosemary - EVOO base, fresh and shredded mozzarella, roasted garlic, a sprinkle of rosemary.  Sun dried tomatoes are a great option.


General tips:

Let the ingredients speak - small amounts of high-quality ingredients will have a great impact.

Dab the sauce - Tomato sauce has a great deal of moisture. Spread thin or even dab the red sauce

EVOO- A slow pouring container will allow you to meter out the amount of olive oil that you want

Pizza cooks fast on the Pizza-Porta so we recommend pre-cooked, roasted, or cured ingredients (onions, peppers, garlic)

There are unlimited combinations - you only need a tiny quantity per pizza, so try some different items.

Leftover ingredients make a great omelet or Spanish tortilla.
