A classic Margheritta



Just playing here. Sauce is a paste of garlic, dried herbs, salt and oil. Shrimp are marinated in pesto. Dough is smeared with sauce and dotted with pesto. Shrimp on top then mozzarella.
Topped the finished pizza with Mache tossed with oil, lemon and salt.

Boy, not sure which one I'd bite into first....both look awesome! Clap Great shots of one of my favourite foods, Vee. Would you mind sharing the recipe and technique for making the sauce for the shrimp pizza? Wondering if one needs a food processor etcetera. Thanks for sharing such nice pizza's!

Nothing difficult at all. Some garlic cloves, Salt, Dried Italian Herbs, and oil. Pureed till it was a smooth loose paste. Adjust the garlic to your taste. Very strong uncooked but after sitting in a 500 degree oven the garlic mellowed and was a fantastic compliment to the shrimp.



You could do this in a mortar and pestle. Just keep crushing till the garlic is a paste. The salt would help break down the garlic.

Here is a shot of the pizza before the salad was added.



Traveling a little further back in time... You can see the garlic paste covering the pizza with the pesto marinated shrimp on top.



The Margherita was happy in the hot oven.

 I figure this could become a good "here I made some pizza - look at them" thread so I'll add mine from last night. Pizza in NZ is generally a lot heavier on toppings than is normal in the US. Here are three I made.

Firstly, some prep work: salsa al pomodoro and chicken / onion / apricot sauce / oregano


First up was my apricot chicken. sparing tomato paste base, followed by the apricot chicken mix from the pan, then a layer of nice melting cheese, two types of capsicums, red onion, lashing of some more apricot sauce, brie on top. This is a crowd favourite.




Had a classic Margheritta, using the salsa made earlier

Square LOL

Finally, salsa, basil, cheese, peperoni, red onion, capsicums, parmesan on top.


And I've forgotten to mention the key ingredient - heaps of black pepper on all of them!
kai time!

It's a kiwi favourite that. Not sure if it's just a local thing? I was figuring that everyone makes pizza from time to time, would be great to see this thread grow!
kai time!

Wow ..

These pizzas surely look fabulous ..

The last time I prepared a home made Italian flat bread called Ligurian Focaccia which I make during weekends if time permitting was when I had returned from my trip to Italy ..

Just could not resist using the unbleached sustainable  amazing Italian Flour and herbs I brought back ..     

It accompanied a Lasagne I had prepared for a friendĀ“s birthday 2 weeks ago ..

I've been tempted to make "pizza muffins" again. I grease a muffin tin, line the holes with pizza dough, stuff them with my favorite toppings, tuck in the extra dough over the top until it makes a nice little ball, and bake them.
