On my way home from the pub and just saw this.
Couldn't resist, I'll report back.
I'm sure the pizza was delicious, but the photo looks like the outcome of some sort of free-for-all fight-to-the death between anchovies and unidentifiable crustaceans.
Did you live?
Ha, didn't realise I'd posted this last night.
Doesn't start til next week apparently, fail.
Had a pepperoni, black olive and sundried tomato one instead, not bad
Made this one earlier
Roast pepper, roast onion and olives.
Is that vegetarian?
No as that's pepperoni. Dunno how safe the cheese is.
It seems we have a new pizza shop opening in the next week or so - its specialty is cone shaped pizzas!
I mean. I fold mine anyway so this sounds like less work for me.
Cone shaped pizza? Wtf surely the toppings will slide off
I think they are topped then wrapped so the topping ends-up on the inside.
Dunno if this is before or after cooking, so I may have to investigate.
Kebab shop pizzas seem consistently tastier than ones from any of the big chains or even independent Italian places. And better value.
Kebab shop pizzas?
You're off my Winterval card list
You HAVE to try the Chilli Con Carne pizza from my local Kebab shop, it's too good for words.
xes, as it's you recommending it, I'm going to have to say no fucking way
Maybe I've been lucky but I have had delicious pizza from both of my local kebab/burger type places and a few I've tried when staying away. Especially compared to Dominoes (overpriced, greasy) and Pizza Express (visited one of their restaurants for the first time recently, really expensive and nothing special).
No. Kebab shop pizzas only taste good after you've gotten off the last tube and are pissed
No way should I be eating this much bread, but....
Cooked using hot cast iron pan then under the grill. Disappointed in the lack of crust bubbling but otherwise fantastic.
Slight tomatoey garlic bread.
and the pizza de résistance. Pineapple and jalapeno, so wrong it's right....
Hot cast iron pan and grill is the best way to home cook pizza...
yeh they're very good there
Atm we're currently relying on a counter top oven that is a bit shit, and there's no chance i'm even gonna try doing pizza in it.
interested to see the comments above about doing pizza under the grill though. I'm sure I could figure it out through trial and error, but anyone fancy saving me some heartbreak and giving away their secrets?
Most ovens don't really get hot enough to cook pizza properly. Ours is supposed to got to about 250 deg but even left for an hour with a stone they still come out a bit doughy.
This is the method I use
I make the pizza and then using a pizza shovel I put into a really hot cast iron pan.
Once it's cooked the bottom half I put it under a hot grill to finish it off.
Some people put the base into the pan and then add the topping as it's cooking, makes sense if you have no way of transferring the fully prepared pizza o the pan without risking massive topping loss.
One of my mates has a proper wood fired pizza oven at his place and it's spectacular. I want one really badly but I haven't got any money.
I'm so poor I can't afford a wood fired pizza oven.
I don't even have the skills to make one.
New pizza place opening in town soon - Selling "Rock" themed pizzas, and drinks/cocktails of course as its an upmarket establishment, quite different to all the other pizza plaes in Aberdeen, apparently.
So, in the absence of a detailed menu, what would Urban thnk the following pizzas might consist of:
The Buddy Holly?
The Bob Dylan?
The Bruce Springsteen?
The Jimi Hendrix?
The Eric Clapton!
I think you've misunderstood the "rock" element.
Tomato, mozarella and basalt
Ham and pyroclasts
Separate names with a comma.
