Pizza Pinwheels

Hey everyone,

 

So this will be my entry for this month's pizza challenge. I wanted to try and do something a little different than the traditional pizza, so I went with pizza pinwheels.

 

Now I have to be honest here, this was nowhere even close to the prettiest meal I've ever made. In fact before cooking it, I thought it looked down right disgusting haha. You'll see in the pictures.

 

I know the old saying goes, you eat with your eyes first. But the good thing was is that it tasted good. 

 

So I will be posting this into the "challenge" thread as well. 

 

I think I learned a few things about this cook that didn't work so well. So if I do it again sometime I'll try a couple different things.

 

So anyways guys, here's my cook for tonight.

 

Enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

This is the flour I use on all my pizza cooks. I get it from amazon, and it comes from Naples, Italy. The dough recipe I use is a true Neopolitan style crust. I really like how it comes out. Very light and holds up to high heat very well.

After kneading.

Form into a ball.

Place back into an oiled bowl. Covered with a towel and placed in the oven for at least 2 hours to rise.

Used my KJ Classic tonight. Decided to move it out from under my gazebo tonight. It was such a nice day/night and felt like cooking in the sunshine.

After rising for about 2 1/2 hrs, dump the dough onto the floured counter. Fold over a couple times by hand.

I cut the dough ball in half, then rolled it out into a rectangle.

Put down some of my homemade pizza sauce.

Then a good heavy dose of fresh shredded mozzarella cheese.

Then I chopped up some slices of pepperoni into very small pieces.

Then the rest of the toppings. I got some italian sausage, onion and green peppers all chopped up very small.

Sliced it up into about 1 inch thick pieces. NOW I KNOW I KNOW, THESE LOOK ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. BELIVE ME I WASN'T HAPPY HOW THEY TURNED OUT. LOL

The KJ getting nice and hot, soaking the pizza stone.

Using parchment paper always works better for me instead of cornmeal. A lot less messy too. So these went on the super hot pizza stone for about 6 min or so.

Almost done, getting nice and bubbly.

Plating up, with a bowl of some of the remaining pizza sauce for dipping.

This was a great idea. Untraditional.. I like that. The money shot makes me want to tell ckreef to go make us these on his next pizza cook. A new way to have pizza instead of the norm. Great entry.

They may have started out looking a bit messy but they ended up looking really tasty. Great entry.

Thanks Reef, I always enjoy your pizza cooks since you do so many. Maybe you could give these a try sometime?

My advice, I'll do this next time. Just keep it simple and don't over stuff it. So just like cheese and pepperoni only. I think I rolled out my dough a little to thin too. Things just fell apart
