Mortadella & pistachio pesto pizza
 
A month or two ago I was in Pittsburgh & some friends took me to a little restaurant in Lawrenceville called Piccolo Forno, great place. Everything we had was fantastic but the standout was a pie we got as an appetizer topped with pistachio pesto, basil, chunks of mortadella and burrata cheese, one of the best pizzas Iíve ever eaten. Since I live clear across state outside of Philly my choices are two, drive 5 hours to get another or make one right outside in the hut, a worthy cook for the maiden fire-up of the Blackstone this spring, a seriously welcomed return.

Started out with the ingredients:

Added the pistachios & basil to some Romano, garlic & olive oil for the pesto, spread out on the fresh dough:

Then added the mortadella & fresh mozzarella (didn't have buratta but I could do without the cream in the center, it's basically fresh mozzarella with a liquid center).

Into the Blackstone which was screaming hot by now (this was the 3rd pie):

It was in there probably 2 minutes or so total:

It all came out pretty good, great Sunday afternoon feast; hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful day as much as I am :biggrin1:, Marc

Got my mouth watering.

Fella you certainly can make a pizza dough! That looks outstanding. I looooooooove mortadella. I'll be stealing that pie idea for sure! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, and one thing, I thought of this last minute & didn't have time to get good imported mortadella so I went with this stuff. What I would have done differently is bought a 1/4 pound of it un-sliced & cut into small chunks to replicate the pie I copied, it works better that way...

INcredible!

Any chance of getting your dough recipe?

sure, here's a link; it has two versions either of which would work for these pies. Today's dough was the cold-rise version which I made yesterday, if I was thinking about it I would've made it maybe Wednesday or Thursday for use today but it still turned out really nice:
