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.

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!
