I'm having a bunch of vegetarians over for a big night of homemade pizza this coming weekend. As a result, my wife and I are looking to diversify our normal array of vegetarian pizzas. One idea we have is to finally make a New Haven plain pie. I know it's basically just sauce, garlic, oregano, and grated parmesan. However, I'm unsure as to how the sauce varies from a standard NY sauce and as to how the garlic and oil are incorporated. I've tried various permutations of searches on Google and just haven't been able to find anything useful. Can anyone on here provide some help?
I'm making the fake shack from Kenji's recipe for the second time this weekend with some friends. What I am wondering is whether anyone knows where I could get a tool that, for lack of a better title, I have always thought of as a burger smasher. In case this is unclear, check out the tool the woman is using to flatten the burgers in this clip from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. So, any ideas on where to get this tool and what its name is? In case you have specific knowledge, I'm in Chicago.
