Spice of the Week!

White pepper: This tart, slightly sour pepper is great on fish and in soups. It looks really cool in a clear grinder with black lava salt.

Cheddar Cheese & Stout Pizza

This is my pizza. I got the idea for this pizza from my older brothers "All American fondue" in which he uses cheddar cheese and dark Guinness stout. I pretty much just stole his idea and threw it on a pizza. Here is the recipe idea for my "Cheddar Cheese & Stout Pizza".

The Toppings

You will need:
1 1/2 C Sharp cheddar cheese
1 Pt Guinness dark stout
1/2 C Cilantro
1 Can Tomatoes
1/2 Large Onion (sliced)
1 Tbs Butter
Mustard seed
Hot smoked paprika

Grate the cheese and set aside. Put all ingredients(except onions, cheese and a bit of stout)in a blender and blend on high till thick and slightly chunky. Saute the onions in the butter and a bit of stout.

The Crust

3 C Flour
2 Tsp Active dry yeast
2 Tsp Salt
1 C Water
2 Tbs Olive oil

Add the salt, yeast, and half the flour to a bowl and mix well. Add the water and the olive oil to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon. Slowly add the flour a bit at a time, once it becomes difficult to stir knead it with your hands adding even less flour at a time. once it becomes thick and doughy, roll it into a ball and let it rise till it doubles in size, 1-2 hours. once risen throw or press the dough into a 1/4 inch sheet and bake once at 400F for about 10 minutes. Once baked add all the toppings and cook for another 20 minutes. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
