My strategy for the Italian Throwdown was to find as many Italian sounding ingrediants as possible and stuff them into one item.
That could only mean one thing CALZONE
I started with my making my favorite pizza sauce with my favorite helper.
Notice the concentration
I had already made my soon to be famous pale ale dough. I know pale ale isn't exactly "Italian" but I'm hoping for a little slack. I mean I'm sure they drink beer in Italy.
Now for all the Italian Ingrediants. For full effect please imagine Tony Soprano reading this like a grocery list from Carmela.
Roasted Tomatoes, Green Olives, Roasted Peppers, Hot Cappacolla, Salami, Pepperoni, Asiago, Mozzarella, and Parmigiano Reggiano
Add some more meats and cheese
I forgot to take a picture of the final product before I put it in the Weber. After folding over I brushed the top with an egg wash and more Mozzarella Cheese. Then off to the Weber
And this is how it turned out.
I also forgot to take a picture the actual grilling/baking but you can see the poor guy out in the cold warming the atmosphere
And now to cut and eat
This was a big hit. The 16 year old actually offered to pay me to make another one. I made two and only crumbs remain
This was fun. Thanks for looking.
