My Pie Monday: Hot Dogs, Smoked Cherry Tomatoes, Cremini Sausage, and More!

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. More

My Pie Monday: Squash Blossoms, Pork Roll, Montanara, and More!

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. More

My Pie Monday: Sweet Potatoes, Sweet Tomatoes, and Sweet Jesus, Dem's Some Fine Looking Pies!

I'm filling in for Slice Queen Meredith this week and normally more work = less fun, but darned if you Slice'rs don't make this job easy. This week we've got fifteen pies on the menu. As usual, dmcavanagh comes through, this week with two pies! LLTODDJ and Zumicroom both give us their best Neapolitan stylings while nzmick brings a taste of Chicago to the other side of the globe. You'll find a Texan who likes salad on their pie (woulda never thought I'd see the day), more mushrooms than you can toss a crust at from amusebouche1, and roast chicken pie from billgraney that looks so good it could even convert this non-chicken-on-pizza eater.

My Pie Monday: Potatoes, Deep Dish, Eggs, and More!

Today we've got a gorgeous potato and thyme pie from Scott D, a Pequod's-style deep dish pizza from FredipusRex, and a seriously delicious-looking pie from Pizzacommander's pizza party (why didn't we get an invite?)...But that's not all—Norma's working her milk kefir starter, Professorplum shares a nice Margherita, Patrick B made a ham, egg, and cheese pie, and there are more tasty pizzas from FoolishPoolish, Bartonkt, dmcavanagh, Tdpl, TScarborough, ESNY1077 , thearrogantchef, and first time MPM'r Soles.

My Pie Monday: Spicy Cranberries, Nacho Pizza, Wild Sheep Sorrel and More!

This week's My Pie Monday is a doozy...we've got a pie from Scott Wiener topped with foraged ingredients from Central Park, a gorgeous skillet-broiler pie from Aya Kristen Alt, a look at dhorst's sourdough pizzas (with a bonus peek at what she's doing with her starter.) And that's just the beginning: thearrogantchef shares a nacho pizza, Jerry Young went Sicilian, and Norma made a Jim Lahey-inspired zucchini-topped pizza. Check out the slideshow for all these and more hunger-inducing homemade pizzas from TScarborough, I Dream of Pizza, Patrick B, Scott D, dmcavanagh, olsonmatt, and Carmine P. More

My Pie Monday: Roasted Garlic Alfredo, Panzerotti, Neo-NY, and More!

Well, it may have been Thanksgiving last week, but Slice'rs didn't let that stop them from eating some delicious homemade pizza! (Though square_pie did try to combine the two.) On the menu: homemade fried panzerotti from dhorst, a spinach and artichoke pizza from bartonkt, a neo–New York pie from dmcavanagh, and more good stuff from Scott D., Adam Kuban, Tupper Cooks!, and TScarborough.
