the pizza cake

The pizza cake is a pizza that looks like a cake rather than a cake that mimics a pizza… I began with a standard batch of dough cut it into 4 equal pieces, let rise. When doubled, finger flatten the first ball & lay it into the bottom of your cake pan (or in my case a Guardian Service aluminum dutch oven, I realized today I don’t actually own a cake pan). Next, top with smoked andouille sausage & mozzarella. Add the next layer of dough & top with spinach & locatelli. Add the next layer of dough & top with pepperoni & mozzarella. The final layer of dough went on & that was topped with caramelized onions & mozzarella. I covered this & popped the whole mess onto the egg @ 400 for about 45 minutes. Remove, cool, slice & serve with tomato sauce. It’s really hard to comprehend how good this tasted.


Oh, & got a new toy for my kettle, the hinged grid – great compliment to the charcoal baskets I picked up earlier this summer, great combination for indirect cooking. Broke in the new grid with the hot smoked sausage:

    It looks like it should be illegal!  A really creative cook - I may have to try it myself.  How much dough in your batch, or maybe a better question, how much flour went into the dough batch?

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Looks interesting. Did the dough in the middle cook enough ?

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

  • Nice.  Question:  The Kettle was already set up for indirect cook, why switch to the egg?
