No Song


This is one of my favourite recipe books. It's got 100 pizza recipes of all sorts and kinds to bake and eat!
I want to cook all the recipes from this book (except the ones that have ingredients that I know I don't like at all)
This table is to keep track of the recipes I made and my impressions about them.
I try to go in order according to the book, but I might skip ahead so I can use whatever leftovers I had from previous ingredients (not gonna let half a cheese or a vegetable to waste!)
Oh yeah, in case you find some descriptions funny, I am a recovering picky eater. I love A LOT of bland-tasting foods and that's both a blessing and a curse.

Number (by the book) Pizza Name Star Ingredients Category Opinion
1 Margherita Pizza Tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese (couldn't find it so I used emmental instead), basil, olive oil Veggie A humble, yet delicious pizza, great for parties because it pleases everyone's palates. I added too much garlic because I forgot the measures in the book are meant for 2 pizzas, not 1. Keep that in mind next time!
2 Veggie & Goat Cheese Pizza Tomato sauce, soft goat cheese, zucchini, aubergine, garlic Veggie Interesting tasting pizza, I usually don't like these vegetables but work well here sliced thin with a potato peeler. I like goat cheese in small quantities. It doesn't melt much unlike mozarella or emmental, so it's important to spread thin slices all over.
3 Olives & Goat Cheese Pizza Tomato sauce, soft goat cheese, olives (I used black), cherry tomatoes, herbes de provence Veggie Oh wow, these are definitely some of the best ingredients to put together with goat cheese. Together they taste so good! I was afraid of the cherry tomatoes because I'm not much of a fresh tomato fan, but if you pick good quality ones there is nothing to fear.
4 Florentine Pizza Tomato sauce, spinach, black olives, egg, grana padano cheese Veggie Well, I didn't expect to like this pizza as much as I did, because I was worried the egg & spinach wouldn't cook well. Drying cooked spinach is still a joyless activity, tho, but it's fun to dip the crust into the egg yolk.
5 Veggie Quattro Stagioni Pizza Tomato sauce, red & green bell pepper, black olives, mushrooms, mozzarella cheese Veggie A classic, colorful, delicious classic, but some of the secondary ingredients ruin it. I should have drained the artichokes, otherwise they turn the sauce into soup :( Why do capers taste so chemical? As always, mushroom pizza stands tall.
6 Artichoke, Brie & Thyme Pizza Tomato sauce, red onion, artichoke, brie cheese, thyme Veggie Yikes on bikes. I drained the artichokes this time and it turned out way better, but I can't stand the brie cheese - strong cheeses just taste like rotten in my mouth. Do you think I'll like it better if I cut off the rind first?
7 Mushroom, Gruyere & Garlic Pizza Tomato sauce, garlic, mushrooms, gruyere, parsley Veggie Oh wow, gruyere must be the strongest flavoured cheese I like: it's very stinky, but it tastes very good. I especially like bites with lots of mushrooms!
8 Pizza Quattro Formaggi Tomato sauce, mozzarella, blue cheese, cheddar, brie (without rinds) Veggie This is a great way to try new kinds of cheese. I was right, removing the rinds of brie make it more bearable and very tasty. Mozzarella and cheddar are tried and true classics. I can't with blue cheese. It tastes vile. Blue cheese is nothing but cheese filled with mold. I am terrified of mold. There are three more recipes in this book with blue cheese but I'm skipping them because no matter the ingredients, blue cheese will bury them like the tsunami of disgusting moldy horror it is.
17 Grilled Zucchini & Feta Cheese Pizza Tomato sauce, zucchini, garlic, feta cheese, mint Veggie Two ingredients I find not quite of my taste make up a pizza that is not quite of my taste. Edible, but would rather make something else. Why mint of all things?
48 Spinach & Crab Pizza Tomato sauce, spinach, crab meat, red bell pepper, gruyere Fish & Seafood It's not a bad pizza by any means, it even tastes good, but I don't think I'll make it again. I don't know how to open a crab so I used some sort of glorified crab stick thing instead. I love spinach, but I'm starting to believe it doesn't quite belong on pizza.
