After reworking my homemade pizza a few months ago, I have been experimenting with different topping combinations. This latest one was inspired by one of the pies we had at Settebello, and turned out really good.
Tomato Sauce & Mozzarella
See "In Pursuit of Pizza Paradise" from my blog for more detailed instructions.
Also known as Italian-style bacon, you can get pancetta from the deli at Harmon's. 5-6 super thin slices are sufficient to cover a 14" pie.
One large basil leaf torn into several smaller pieces goes a long way.
Instead of mincing the garlic like we usually do, I cut a clove into thin slices and placed them strategically. It's like biting into little garlic land mines.
Toasted Pine Nuts
These add a nice texture to an already flavorful pie. Pine nuts are toasted by heating a dry skillet to medium heat and tossing them for a few minutes until golden brown.
I know chicken alfredo and barbecue chicken are popular amongst the family. What other topping combinations do people like?
