Pizza (Page 7)
Nathaniel Nirvana: how could you 'forget' you made amazing pizza cupcakes?
or did you just mean you conveniently forgot to tell anyone! ?
What were they exactly? ...I know it has the words pizza & cupcake...both are so sure they'd be amazing
ColonelKusanagi: i forgot to tell everyone in Pizza about it. i used Pillsbury grands, kneaded them with garlic powder oregano and hop peppers. flattened them out into cupcake tin and then put sauce, mozzarella, shredded pepperoni and more cheese and more pepperoni taking care to sprinkle the seasonings on each layer to make it 100% tasty. there was an extra biscuit so i split it up and made covers for 3 of them, i put tiny diced onions in the 3 so it helped to mark them as different. the caps came out like bread stick discs, added some chaddar on tip to keep them interesting.
ColonelKusanagi: hot* cheddar* top* i must have been too busy thinking of making them again to bother reading that back to myself. mmm pizza
Nathaniel Nirvana: that's okay......was too busy thinking about them too that I didn't even notice
brilliant idea...pizza cupcakes
Corwin: I used to buy frozen mini-pizzas a lot.... but I eventually came to the conclusion that they taste like a monkey's butt.
Now I just make pizza-toast when I need a quick pizza fix. I just take a few slices of bread, slap some spaghetti sauce on them, throw some cheese and spices and toppings on them, and toss them into the toaster-oven. Way better than frozen pizza, and it only takes minutes.
mel2u73: Best pizza I ever had was just yesterday, at local place called King of Pizza. so hot coming out of oven cheese was just running all over the place and just enuf crispy crust to make it great. had shredded sausage as topping. Sorry Pizza Hut, Poppa Johns and Dominoes, and even Joe's Pizza, found a new place to go.....
ColonelKusanagi: we've got great pizza all along the east coast, don't be too cocky now. going to see how well pizza works out on a tortilla soon, just a touch healthier.
Corwin: I make tortilla pizza quite often for a quick snack. I use two tortillas with cheese in between them for the crust. Yummy... and a great excuse to add more cheese. The fat from the cheese firms it up and crisps the tortilla on the bottom, and prevents the tortilla from getting soggy on top from the tomato sauce.
An awesome thin-crust substitute in a pinch.
richie1113: im sorry but if you ever lived in brooklyn and have tasted the pizza there and the environment that comes with it you would probably understand where i am coming from
ColonelKusanagi: I've never lived in Brooklyn and never have to, i don't live all that far. I personally have had pizza there. Have you had pizza everywhere else? i'm gonna guess and say no, but by all means if you have enlighten us all you want.
richie1113: i have had pizza in different places, i live in new jersey now and the pizza here is just fraud, when i go to brooklyn i have to have a sicilian slice and an icee, it just brings back so many memories when i was a kid, i dont think you would understand, u have never grown up in brooklyn, ny, it just a whole diff vibe, different lifestyle, unique scenery...
ColonelKusanagi: let it go, you are hung up on it, you have a soft spot for nostalgia, it has very little to do with the flavor of the food. growing up in brooklyn doesn't change the way the food tastes in Brooklyn at any given time. again i've been there, it is not magically different to natives.
richie1113: yea, for you it has not taste, i live in nj and every pizzeria i go to taste like shit, the taste in brooklyn has a magic to it,and i can underrstand why you dont understand wher im coming from, ok end my lines
Corwin: You should try growing up in Canada.... we have our own version of "Pizza"...
We enjoy our own take on what "we" call tradition, like stringy mozzarella cheese and a zingy tomato sauce... a crispy yet airy crust that reeks of fermentation - the smell of fresh baked bread...
.... but we put crazy crap on our pizza like bacon and fresh shrimp... sometimes even back-bacon and pineapple... we are a strange culture, intermixed with maritime culture, the French, and a splash of every other distinct culture on the planet... and our pizza reflects this.
Pizza does not belong to Italy any longer... and certainly Brooklyn has no monopoly on what is "good".
But, not being Canadian.... I don't think you would understand.

richie1113: no sorry i wouldnt like growing up in canada buddy, i have family in canada and i wouldnt change my childhood for any other place in the world, corner store would be open until 2 am, just to get some snacks to eat just an example to put out there, learned new things everyday of my life living where i was at, pizzeria was a couple of blocks from where i lived, sicilian slice was amazing brother, brooklyn can give u millions of example on wat is good, and what is good for you, teaching you things you will never get anywhere else in the world, well i dont want to say brooklyn is the top city in the world but it sure is up there with many other wonderful cities, ask people about pizza in brooklyn, please do, you will get positive feedback, and its not just the taste man, its more than that, its a wonderful scenery walking down the street with that slice you got in a bag, oh and you want to talk culture lol, forget it, brooklyn is the melting pot of ethnicity
ColonelKusanagi: it's called nostalgia Richie. i get that you love it more than anything in the world but you are stuck in a box. btw you described 3 cities i lived in none of them yours. anyways
back to pizza, have i bought up pizzazgna? if not, put pepperoni and everty other lovely pizza topping and get it on your lasagna right away!
jennebraska: I would like a Papa Murphy's myself. But I would love and adore some pizza crust made with sour dough starter. And some good cheese, lots of cheese, Homemade is always the best.
