Easy French Bread Pizza #PizzaWorld


Ingredients:

3 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
pinch red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley or basil leaves, or a mix
Kosher salt
1 large loaf French or Italian bread (see note above), about 18 inches long and 4 inches wide, split half lengthwise and crosswise
1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
8 ounces freshly grated whole milk mozzarella cheese
2 ounces grated Parmigiano-reggiano

Procedures:

1. Adjust oven rack to upper position and preheat oven to 425°F. Heat butter and 3 tablespoons olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat until butter is melted. Add garlic, pepper flakes, and oregano and cook, stirring occasionally, until garlic is softened but not browned, about 2 minutes. Stir in half of parsley/basil and a big pinch of salt. Remove from heat.

2. Place bread cut-side-up on a clean work surface. Using a rimmed baking sheet, press down on bread evenly until compressed to about 2/3rds of its original height. Place bread on top of rimmed baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, brush half of garlic/butter/oil mixture evenly over cut surfaces of bread, making sure to get plenty of bits of garlic and aromatics. Set aside.

3. Add tomatoes to remaining garlic/butter/oil mixture in pan, stir to combine, increase heat to medium, bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to maintain a bare simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until rich and reduced, about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt.

4. While sauce cooks, spread 1/4 of mozzarella evenly over surface of bread and transfer to oven. Cook until cheese is barely melted, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside until sauce is cooked.

5. Spread sauce evenly over bread, then spread remaining mozzarella on top of sauce. Transfer to oven and bake until cheese is melted and just starting to brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with Parmigiano-reggiano, remaining parsley/basil, and remaining tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil. Allow to cool slightly and serve. Serves 3 - 4

Italian Pizza: Fun Facts You Never Knew #PizzaWorld

From Europe to Asia, South America to Antarctica, there's always an establishment that serves the world's number one food: pizza. As much as you eat this, do you really know the food's history or the fun facts attached to its creation? Chances are, you don't know much. You simply enjoy every bite, but there's something about knowing about the food you eat that makes you appreciate it even more. Well, here are some fun facts you'd never expect:

Strange Pizza Toppings

Indians include paneer (a type of cottage cheese) while the French have their own flambé pizza to boot. Japan, on the other hand, make things as interesting as their menu by including eels, mayonnaise, or squid on their list of toppings. You can definitely expect something different in every country you visit, and if your adventurous enough, many of them, as you'll find, are a delight to your palate. So, don't hesitate because you could come up with your own delicious recipe and have your friends appreciate what you've created. Surprisingly, however, not too many people appreciate anchovies. In a survey done, people would rather try other flavors rather than have this fish on their pizza.

Growing Trend

More and more Americans are starting to appreciate the taste of cold pizza. Whether this stems from sheer laziness or from being adventurous, there are people out there who eat the slice straight out of the fridge. As for restaurants, 17 percent of these establishments are actually pizzerias. Each one offers something unique. This actually gives people a chance to explore and see which pizza they love most. In fact, the average person consumes around 46 slices of pizza per year. Sadly, many people blame this for the problems related to obesity, when in fact, you can still create your very own healthy pizza recipe. It's all about choosing the right kinds of toppings.

Pizza History

The first known pizza actually came from ancient Greece where they covered their pita bread with olive oil and a variety of herbs. It was only in the later part in history that the pizza we know today reached the city of Naples in Italy. This became the Italian meal because very first pizzeria opened in Naples in 1738.

Pizza Day

Everyone loves their pizza, and in honor of this world's favorite food, the US government declared October as the national pizza month in 1987. Surprisingly, however, the highest consumption of pizza isn't on this month or during special holidays. Pizza establishments go haywire with the amount of orders during Super Bowl Week (which happens in the earlier part of the year).

Famous Orders

Men love the meat-lovers pizza while most women opt for the vegetarian variety. And of all the Americans that order pizza, 72 percent of them prefer to gobble down their meal with Coke.




Italian Pizza


Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
8 ounces hot Italian sausage, casings removed
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 (12-ounce) bunches fresh spinach, stemmed, coarsely chopped (about 12 cups), or 1 (10-ounce) package frozen cut-leaf spinach, thawed and drained
1 (15-ounce) container whole milk ricotta
12 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, coarsely chopped
4 large egg yolks, beaten to blend
Pastry Dough, recipe follows
1 large egg, beaten to blend

Procedures:

1.) Position the rack on the bottom of the oven, and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

2.) Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat. Add the sausages and saute until golden brown, breaking the sausage into pieces, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and set aside to cool.

3.) Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in the same frying pan over medium heat. Add the spinach and cook until the spinach wilts and the juices evaporate, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Squeeze the spinach to drain as much liquid as possible.

4.) Into a large bowl, add egg yolks and beat lightly. Stir in the ricotta, mozzarella, and 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese. Add the sausage, the spinach and prosciutto to the mixture and stir to combine.

5.) Roll out larger piece of dough on a lightly floured work surface to a 17-inch round. Transfer the dough to a 9-inch springform pan. Trim the dough overhang to 1 inch. Spoon the ricotta mixture into the dough-lined pan. Roll out the remaining piece of dough into a 12-inch round. Place the dough over the filling. Pinch the edges of the doughs together to seal, then crimp the dough edges decoratively. Brush the beaten 1 large egg over the entire pastry top. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan over the top. Bake on the bottom shelf until the crust is golden brown, about 1 hour.

6.) Let stand 15 minutes. Release the pan sides and transfer the pizza to a platter. Cut into wedges and serve. 6 to 8 servings


Pastry Dough:

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1/4 cup cold solid vegetable shortening, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs, beaten to blend
2 to 4 tablespoons ice water

Blend the flour, the butter, the shortening and salt in a food processor until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Blend in the eggs. With the machine running, add the water 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough forms. Gather the dough into a ball. Divide the dough into 2 pieces, with 1 piece twice as large as the second piece. Flatten the dough pieces into disks. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until the dough is firm enough to roll out, about 30 minutes.

Yield: 2 dough pieces (enough for 1 Pizza Rustica)
