Pizza is not just for pepperoni anymore. Pizza: 50 Traditional and Alternative Recipes for the Oven and Grill turns what was once the traditional Sicilian tomato and cheese pie into a feast for the mouth and a smorgasbord of flavors. Dwayne Ridgaway makes pizza for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even for dessert. Lavishly illustrated, this compilation of recipes shows you how to make an original pizza creation, using either the oven or the grill, and gives you inspiration for coming up with your own delicious pizza topping combinations.
Grilled or baked, these recipes will give you ideas to make pizza a meal for anytime of the day and for any event. Included here is an array of recipes, including Tenderloin and Portobello Mushroom Pizza, Caramelized Leek and Golden Potato Grilled Pizza, Bloody Mary Shrimp Pizza with Fried Garlic, Western Omelet Breakfast Pizza, Thai Chicken Pizza, and even Apple Crumble "Pizza" for dessert. With this book, fresh ingredients, and a little creativity, you will transform pizza from Sunday night take-out into an every night gourmet feast.
