White Pizza

White Pizza

Dana and I are huge fans of pizza.  Dana’s favorite pizza is a white pizza.  White pizza is different from your average pizza, as it does not have a red tomato based sauce.  White pizza has a garlic oil base and is then topped with a trifecta of cheeses.  It is basically, cheesy garlicky awesomeness.

Three Cheese Manicotti

Homemade Manicotti

My wife Dana is from New York City! When we visit NYC, we like to purchase food items to bring back Virginia.  One of those food items is fresh pasta.  Our favorite is Manicotti.  You just can’t beat the flavor of the pasta, from the pasta stores in New York.  Since we haven’t been to NY in a while, our stash has run dry.  So I wanted to surprise Dana with some handmade Manicotti.  I must say the three cheese Manicotti was freaking fantastic.  Even Dana said it was the best that she had eaten.  That says a lot.

Chicken Spinach and Mushroom Pizza

The other day I wanted to make a little lighter pizza that did not have the heavy red sauce on it. So I decided to make a nice light chicken pizza. With a base of seasoned whipped ricotta topped with chicken and sauteed spinach and mushrooms. It was one of tastiest pizzas I have ever made.

On a side note, make sure that your ricotta cheese is good.  Mine had an expiration date of two weeks from now and it was moldy.  Yeah, I know.  So gross.

I finally broke out the stone again after getting a new pizza peel. So much better than using a pizza pan.
