Prosciutto Pizza with Pesto and Portobello Mushrooms

We recently went on a short weekend getaway to Santa Barbara, and on the way home we decided to stop by the Mario Batali pizzeria in Los Angeles called “Mozza.”  We shared a Fried squash blossoms with ricotta pizza which was excellent, but did lack a little bit of oomph. It was bland I guess, but good. We were sitting at the bar, watching the chefs prepare the dough, and learned a new technique to keep the bubbles in the edge. So we thought we would give it a try, and make a similar pizza in style, but with much more taste in it.

Johnsonville Italian Sausage Pizza With Roasted Garlic, Portobello Mushrooms and Parmesan Crisps

For the past two months, we’ve been hosting weekly pizza parties.  Well, truth be told, they have been competitive throw downs where our friends are invited to say goodbye to the week that was and bring their best recipes to battle it out for the pizza crown.   We’ve had some pretty fantastic creations.  After 8 weeks though, inspiration begins to wane. So we were quite excited to hear of the tastespotting.com Johnsonville Italian Sausage competition.  Inspiration, the chance to get our pizza on our favorite food porn site AND the likelihood (albeit remote) of winning a food making competition.  How could we not be excited?

Anders had this one on his mind for a whole week and came up with this creation: Johnsonville Italian Sausage Pizza with  roasted garlic, Portobello mushrooms and topped with parmesan crisps and toasted pine nuts. Does it get any crazier than this?   We hope you like it, and if you do please vote for us when the time comes.

Smoked Salmon Pizza With Garlic Butter Fried Portobello Mushrooms And Parmesan

This was a pizza Anders put together during one of our weekly pizz-off’s, where we wave goodbye to the old week… with a friendly pizza competition amongst friends. The goal is not to win, but to have a great time (and win). Our newfound love for smoked paprika once again manifested itself in a generous sprinkle on top, which has the odd side effect of producing some rather red-tinted photos (for which we apologize). As we were all sitting around the table, sipping red wine like the pro’s, we reminisced about our childhood cardboard-pizzas from the nearby Domino’s or local pizza pusher, and wondered why we didn’t make our own pizzas while in college when it’s really not that hard and so much better.

Portobello Mushroom Burger With Roquefort Cheese And Horseradish Mayo On Bed Of Pea Sprouts

For the vegetarians out there, you can’t go wrong with a delicious portobello mushroom burger. This is one of our favorite sandwiches, for yes, a burger is also a sandwich, much like a Lada is also a car (although reluctantly). Whenever we see fresh portobello mushrooms we try to secure a few for grilling. They are simply delicious when soaked in the right marinade, and actually taste better than most meat patties. The grilling really brings out the best in these shrooms, and you get to enjoy the wonderful colors and look of this gigantic Agaricus bisporus.

Review: Smokehouse Restaurant Grilled Portobello Sandwich with Goat Cheese, Pear, Organic Baby Greens, Roasted Red Pepper, Pesto Mayo on a Brioche Bun

This past weekemd was rather hectic. For the past few weeks I have been frantically preparing for a licensing examination that required me to unearth knowledge I had lost eons ago – a plethora of arcane engineering knowledge that had gone the way of so many things not used – nearly lost forever. Well having sat through two days of grueling examinations I am much relieved to reclaim my ‘normal’ life, a large factor of which is… cooking or at least thinking of cooking. Still all the household chores left undone were crying out for attention and then I came down with a ghastly cold. We made a trip to Temecula which, as all excursions these days, included a meal with sandwiches. Since this is not our recipe, we can’t speak much about the preparation.
