Clam pizza is the kind of pizza that you need to start eating immediately after it's cut into slices, before the copious clam juices have a chance to render the crust completely soggy (though some degree of sogginess is inevitable—a feature for some, even). Even so, roasting a clam in the open heat of an oven is not the ideal way to do it, even if its been freshly shucked. Want to know the secret to the absolute tenderest, most flavorful clams and juiciest clam pizza around? Place the whole, unshucked clams on that pie before baking. It may look strange at first, and it will definitely look strange when it comes out of the oven, but the clams will be insanely tender and you won't lose a single drop of those precious juices.

Stromboli can be a somewhat contentious term, and depending on who you ask, definitions vary somewhat drastically. We know what it's not—but while stromboli is neither calzone nor submarine sandwich, it's also not terribly distinct. So, what is it? Making stromboli begins with a dough—sometimes pizza, sometimes bread—that's stuffed with various cheeses and Italian cured meats. The fillings are encased in the dough—sometimes braided, sometimes rolled—then baked, and finally sliced to serve.

Lane Cake: now there's a tall southern belle of a layer cake, filled with coconut, chopped fruit and nuts and a generous serving of whiskey or brandy, and topped off with a snowy range of fluffy frosting.

The composition of your parfait is your own adventure.
