SALMON PIZZA AND LAMB PIZZA. AND I’VE MADE SOME INSTAGRAM CHANGES!

SALMON PIZZA We made another two pizzas this week - a Salmon Pizza and a Lamb Pizza and they were both very tasty but not without their challenges!  The Salmon Pizza was undoubtedly the nicest fish pizza I've made so far.  Another white pizza, I spread some light soft cheese onto the base, added mozzarella, salmon pieces, a sprinkle of sweet chilli sauce and finished off with a garnish of rocket leaves (arugula). This cooked quite fast (compared to the troublesome Lamb pizza cook!).  I was disappointed with the pizza base though.  The temperature on the stone was 420c in…

MEATBALL PIZZA AND BACON PIZZA COOKED IN A WOOD-FIRED PIZZA OVEN.

MEATBALL PIZZA - COMPARING A GAS COOK TO A WOOD FIRED COOK We've been back to using the wood-fired oven this week and the dough suits it better.  I made the same Meatball Pizza as last week - using the same dough recipe and toppings.  In this video I cooked the Meatball Pizza in the wood-fired oven then added clips from the gas-fired oven Pizza to provide a visual comparison of the two cooks: The outcome from the two differently cooked Pizzas shows that even with the same dough and toppings the gas and wood ovens do provide different results…

ANCHOVY PIZZA & CURRIED CHICKEN PIZZA USING WOOD AND GAS FIRED PIZZA OVENS.

OONI 3 GAS-FIRED PIZZA OVEN - ANCHOVY PIZZA I love anchovies and particularly the way they crisp under the intense upper heat from the Ooni 3 gas-fired pizza oven. Anchovies have a strong delicious salty taste so I kept the other toppings subtle and added some black olives, roughly chopped baby spinach - not to forget the buffalo mozzarella and the tomato sauce on the base!  Check it out! This was a real-time cook and I had the gas on full power throughout just to ensure the crust cooked as fast as possible.  Why did I use the pizza peel…

SURF & TURF PIZZA AND TRYING TO MAKE A BREAKFAST PIZZA IN A WOOD-FIRED OVEN!

This has been a fun pizza making week!  Valentine's Day happened on the Thursday and so I wanted to make a heart-shaped pizza with a friendly twist too.  Not every one has a valentine and so I created this pizza for those with a palentine to share with their pals instead! Surf and Turf is a great way to do this as it offers two types of preferences on one pizza.  The surf is for fishy food and the turf is for red meat.  So I cooked shrimps, red pepper with chili olive oil on one half of the heart…

NEW YOUTUBE CHANNEL TRAILER AND COOKING PIZZA WITH THE DOOR ON!

This week I didn't feel great with a bad cold and instead of going out and braving the winter weather, I decided to stay inside, keep warm and finish off the YouTube channel trailer I'd been working on.  Last year I dropped my hard-drive and lost all footage from 2017 and early 2018 but I still had loads more available from my iPhone to use.  So here it is, the new trailer - I wanted it to give an overview of the channel in 2 minutes.  I hope you like it.  If you do please give it a thumbs up!!…

COOKING PIZZA IN THE SNOW! PLUS I’VE CHANGED THE BLUE CAPUTO PIZZA DOUGH RECIPE!

Another week of wintry weather and that's fine as I've been waiting a long time to cook pizza in the snow!  Ok it wasn't a full on blizzard snow  - it looked more like polystyrene beads but nonetheless, we very rarely get snow so anything was a bonus! And it's not cold out there when your oven is firing off heat at 550 Celsius! This week we made two salami pizzas.  The first one I topped with delicious salami with fresh mushrooms and chopped spinach.  In the Spring/Summer/Autumn season I would've used basil but....basil does not survive well in my…
