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…

Cooking Meatball Pizzas using Ooni 3 and using All Purpose 00 Pizza Flour.

The weather is improving and it feels like Spring!  This week I had a little experiment using All Purpose 00 Pizza Flour.  I wanted to make a garlic bread and so opted not to use Caputo because it's so bubbly.  To tone the bubbles down for this type of bread I opted for the All Purpose. When I started making Pizza I had no idea what 00 meant and the difference between All Purpose 00 and Caputo 00 flour.  One is totally stretchy and the other totally isn't. 00 is the mill of the grain.  This is the finest milled…

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!!…
