Happy My Pie Monday! We've got a stunning selection of homemade pies from Slice'rs old and new in today's lineup. See them all in the slideshow.
'dhorst' on Serious Eats
A joyous My Pie Monday to one and all! We have a jaw-dropping count of twenty-four contributors this week, and I'm not kidding when I say that each and every one of them has been kicking some major pizza butt.
Merry My Pie Monday, Slice'rs! Things are taking new shapes around here with a santa, tree, turtle and much more!
Each week we talk to a member of the Serious Eats community. This week we chatted with Dhorst whose name produces more than a thousand search results on our site and hundreds of pictures of beautiful home cooked pizzas.
And now we are back to our regularly scheduled My Pie Monday! The pizza load is light this week, but there is great quality in the quantity here. And if you're making pizza this week, send us a shot for next week's slideshow!
It's a Halloween Special of My Pie Monday, Slice'rs! The pies look as good as ever, but this week we've added a twist. If you frequent the weekly My Pie Monday galleries, you may think you've got an eye for the signature look of pies by regular contributors. I know I do. This week we're going to make it a "guess whose pie" game.
Check out homemade pizzas from Slice readers. There's a lot of creative inspiration to be found in today's slideshow! If you're making pizza this week, send us a shot for next week's My Pie Monday.
Slice'r dhorst hosted a pizza making shindig up in Syracuse. Reaching into the mailbag, we have a complete slideshow of the pizza making and the members of the SE community that made it in from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania, and around Upstate New York!
My Pie Monday is finally here! And it seems as though summer is as well by the looks of the variety of produce cropping up on these pies. Check out these pies from amusebouche1, bierebeer, BKMatt, Damian, dhorst, Girl Loves Pizza, livefreeorpie, Malanga, Norma427, thearrogantchef, and TXCraig1!
Welcome back to My Pie Monday! There's a great group of pies here, folks! Norma and Jimmyg continue to explore the "epoxy method", Dmcavanagh gives the broiler a shot, and Thezaman makes some pizza bones that any dog (or master) would love.
Happy My Pie Monday! The hits keep coming this week with some real innovation in the topping department. Take for example dhorst's faux cremini mushroom sausage seasoned with fennel and aleppo! And TXCriag1 took a chance on some cherry tomatoes in the smoker and met with great success. Get those two together and we could have some smoked faux cremini sausage.
Another fine week on the My Pie Monday circuit here at Slice. We've got a self-proclaimed non-gloopy, brighter version of a cheesy artichoke pie from dhorst, further experimentations in dough from Norma427 and jimmyg, a pie that's sure to cure any Brussels sprouts addiction from TXCraig1, and a take on Deep Dish from livefreeorpie.
At last, My Pie Monday! There are some freakin' incredible looking pies this week. There's lots of evidence of Slice'rs helping Slice'rs via past inspiration, advice, and collaboration. Dmcavanagh, Jimmyg, and Norma427 put their heads together on some dough experiments and the results appear here. Adam took some tips from TXCraig1, who also was the source of topping inspiration for Atmast (who, by the way, is soliciting some pizza stone advice.) Imwalkin represents with the Aleppo, which I'm sure fellow addict Dhorst would greet with a big thumbs up. She and newcomer Mitch Birrittella sent in pics of some drool-worthy grilled pies. Scott D's Margherita being pulled from his newly finished wood fired oven is sure to induce some Slice'r envy. And just look at how beautiful JEL's squash blossom pie is. Amusebouche1 makes a eye-catching pie with zucchini and cured meats, and hogletboglet makes a damn good case for how crave-worthy a simple pepperoni pie can be. After all the fried pie talk last week, it's great to see Thezaman's montanara. And last, but not least, livrefreeorpie works a very near and dear regional ingredient onto his pie.
This edition of My Pie Monday is a real mashup! We have Slice'rs making pies from other Slicer's, like dmcavanagh's rendition of Thezaman's Youngstown Sicilian from last week. There are Slice'rs making famous pies, like Norma's Cherry Jones, and Slice'rs turning two famous pies into one, a la Dhorst! Oh, and jimmyg throws a pie varietal mashup in the mix with his hybridized Sicilian-NY pie. Nice one! Both Thezaman and Bierebeer take a ride on the gluten free crust train—very apropos after the Domino's and Don Antonio coverage from Adam Kuban last week. BKMatt gets nostalgia with a bacon, egg, and cheese pizza in honor of the suburban breakfast sandwiches of his youth. Pizzabinge adds a little sweetness to his pie with a touch of honey, TXCraig1 dresses his Margherita up with some "extra stuff," and amusebouche1 fires up a "Four Seasons" pie. This week also includes Imwalkin's "best taste of the year," a mushroom, spinach, and herb pie from Hogeltboglet, and a first time submission from JEL!
Happy, My Pie Monday! The pie-making Slice'rs are on fire. Thezaman contributes a hyper regional Sicilian from Youngstown, Ohio, Dhorst is back in business with a new double-decker ovens, and Damian produced a "nearly-politan" with some dough formula tips from TXCraig1. Speaking of TXCraig1, he's falling hard for the Calabrian and Cheese combo. Norma427 produced her best Sicilian to date, and Npinto shares the topping collection pie from the end of a pizza-making evening. Another curtain closing pie comes from Livefreeorpie. The spring topping award this week goes to BKMatt with foraged fiddlehead ferns crowning his pie. Speck gets some play on pies from amusebouche1 and atmast. Redwgn67 lays down a fig spread on this week's pizza, jimmyg works Sambuca into his toppings, and KTC brings buffalo chicken and mac n cheese together on one crust. Bbb-ry is back with a Four Cheese and Mushroom pie, Bierebeer focuses on caramelized onions, and Imwalkin pairs Vidalia onions with pepper shooters.
Holy My Pie Monday! There's a whole lot of pizza making been going on. Pizza styles range from Norma's "Greek Goddess" to Thezaman's smoking hot VPN Margherita. Dmcavanagh even made a hybrid style—his Sfincilian. And wait'll you see what all Bierebeer piled on the 'Redneck Pie.' Dhorst worked out a grill hack to combat oven-less pizza making and TotesM'Gotes grilled some pies in order to get around a pizza stone-less vacation kitchen. Imwalkin met topping success with a long hot and capicola combo, and TXCraig1 discovered that putting the sausage on raw produces a superior pie. Bbb-ry made an all-time favorite Calabrian sausage and balsamic onion marmalade pie, and spicedham hit upon a new kind of supreme for his pizza making rotation. Speaking of successes, I even had my own in the fried pizza department. Check out these pies and more from: amusebouche1, hogletboglet, jimmyg, Redwgn67, livefreeorpie, and JKdrummer!
It's My Pie Monday time, Slicer's! There's a great variety of pies in this week's line-up. Toppings are definitely a MPM stronghold, and this week is no exception. Bierebeer represents with a lobster, garlic, and scallion combo, Jamesws combines baby kale and grapes, onepercent99 uses some aware-winning pulled pork, and Hogletboglet finds a new favorite in the Asian-Moroccan flatbread. Of the season, there's an asparagus and prosciutto pie from jimmyg, TXCraig1's asparagus "Bird's Nest" a la Jim Lahey, an earthy leek and mushroom pizza from redwgn67, and, of course, RAMPS! from dhorst. There's an Adam Kuban related shout out in there, but that's not the only one. In response to last week's Home Slice, Imwalkin sent in a Memorial Meatball Pizza. Ev has the ol wood-fired oven turning out good old fashioned NY-style pepperoni pies, Norma is still tweaking her Sicilian pizza for the market, and Npinto has been busy baking focaccia and pizza. Amusebouche1's been working on Tomato Pie, but not the kind you'd find in Jersey. And last but not least, a big My Pie Monday welcome to SaucedTO, who used a combo BBQ/broiler method.
I love ramps. Unreservedly. They are my favorite vegetable. And I say that about a lot of vegetables, but I really really mean it about ramps. Nothing says spring to me like ramps. Fried in butter, pickled, grilled, their sweet, oniony, grassy flavor is delicious in so many ways, and the season is just far too short. What better way to celebrate its start than with one of your own photos? Slice regular dhorst lost her ramp virginity this year and sent us this photo.
While there weren't any Peepzas this My Pie Monday, we did get some Pizza Bunnies, thanks to Norma. Overall, this seemed to be a good week for playing around with new dough formulas. Andrew Janjigian, Imwalkin, ccd2012, and livefreeorpie all worked on variations of the Lahey No Knead method, and Norma and Atmast revisited their new formulas from last week. Dmcavanagh made a change to his dough as well, but in terms of size rather than formula. While there were a lot of Lahey-like pies, other big name doughs got some representation too. Hogletboglet worked with a Reinhart dough, and Burger365 built a pizza on a Nancy Silverton base. A pair of pies from the most recent Tupper Lake Pizza Night were sent in by Tupper Cooks! and Dhorst. (By the way, the aleppo "crack" epidemic spreads beyond the Dhorst territories, into Imwalkin's neck of the woods.) Embracing baseball season, billgraney made a B.A.T pie with bacon, arugula, and Tomato. And amusebouche1 did some spring cleaning and created a cheese drawer salvation pie. In the vein of 'toppings you didn't know you needed to try' we have the ever excellent brussels sprouts and pancetta pie from TXCraig1 and a Tuna and Onion pie (referenced by Bitchin Fixins in the comments of that post) from newcomer onepercent99. Keep up the awesome work everyone!
