Saturday Afternoon Pizza Blogging: The Sauceless Pizza
This lovely little eight-inch wee beastie is another of my MSR pan pizza projects. (If all you see above is a little red X, here's the direct link: http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/862/696/1600/100706pizza1c.jpg) The recipe is similar to the one I used last time out, with two major differences: No sauce, and no mushrooms. Instead, I acted on the recommendation of Kent, a frequent commenter over at Steve and Jen's News Blog, and used a "roasted" tomato with garlic. (Actually, I sauteed the tomato with the garlic and some olive oil; that removed most of the liquid, which was the point of the exercise.) Oh, and when I cooked the Italian sausage beforehand, I threw in a chopped Thai pepper, seeds and all, along with a touch of olive oil. I reserved the resulting grease and while the cooked sausage cooled in a bowl, the now-pepperfied oil flavored the tomatoes and garlic. I then set that aside to cool while I lined the MSR pan with dough and chopped up the onions and basil (and even a little dill, just for grins). The end result: Delicious.
