'My Pizza' on Serious Eats

Shiitake with Walnut Purée Pizza

Instead of relying on cheese for richness, Lahey has created a purée of long cooked, sweet onions and walnuts. It's bitter and sweet, deeply creamy, and bakes up beautifully under handfuls of sliced shiitakes and rosemary. The pizza is topped off with a drizzle of olive oil, which is more than enough for this pie, but if you must, a sprinkling of Parmesan wouldn't hurt. More

Radicchio Salad

In My Pizza Lahey has included recipes for many of the fabulous non-pizza menu items on offer at his New York pizzeria, Co., including this fascinating Radicchio Salad. It's a salad full of bitter, earthy flavors interspersed with creamy-pungent bites of Taleggio and bursts of sweet-sour balsamic vinegar. More

Basic Tomato Sauce

When it comes to sauce making, Lahey keeps it simple, as in really simple. His Basic Tomato Sauce is nothing more than tomatoes crushed and blended with a bit of salt and olive oil. No cooking, no herbs, no garlic, just tomatoes. He gives two options for tomatoes: canned or fresh. We'd go with a good can of San Marzanos until July rolls around since they're the ones that are going to pack the sweetest, tomato-iest punch. More
