Buffalo Chicken Pizza
Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Awhile ago my good pal Tim (aka, SushiPowered) sent me a recipe for a thin crust pizza.  I’m fairly sure it came from a cookbook from the Cheeseboard Pizza Collective. I really slacked on the, er, implementation of said pizza so last night I was determined to git-r-done.

I had two pizzas in mind that I wanted to try:

  • Buffalo Chicken Pizza: two chicken breasts or a bunch of boneless thighs in a crockpot with Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce for 6-8 hours.  Shred it, put it on the pizza crust, then lay slices of provolone on top and bake.
  • Jack Moneypenny’s Famous Olive Oil & Black Pepper Pizza: Just cover the crust with olive oil, lay provolone slices over it, and crack some fresh black pepper on top of the cheese.  A long time family favorite.

The picture here is of the final product, Buffalo-style version.

My reaction to the new crust: I think I did something wrong somewhere.  It was incredibly tough for me to get the dough into a bakeable form– I tried rolling and I tried stretching but whenever it got anywhere close to thin enough for my tastes it ripped.  I don’t believe it was a recipe thing; I guess I just need to make it a few more times to try and get it right.  It was also suggested that I also get myself a pizza stone if I’m going to make thin crust pizzas.

Once out of the oven, the buffalo chicken pizza was really good!  The crust ended up fairly lumpy but the flavor was great.  The olive oil pizza…. yikes.  I only ate one piece and was not impressed.  I thought about it for awhile and I think I know why it didn’t taste good.  The Moneypenny Family pizza recipe uses a fair amount of sugar, which helps the dough rise bigger as well as provides a subtle sweetness to the crust.  The Cheeseboard crust, on the other hand, is very simple and without sugar or a double rise step which makes sense when you’re shooting for thin crust pizza.  My guess is that without that subtle sweetness, the olive oil & black pepper flavors simply do not work.

I think I need to experiment a little more with this recipe: first to make it truly thin, and then to experiment with different ways of making it.

    guy twittering about his roomate steve behind his back…shhhh don’t tell steve!

    “RB sent Steve a message on Facebook “hiiiiii Steve. been so long, hope u r well” Steve spent 1/2 hour on reply, then decided not to respond.”

    “BG took Steve out for dinner tonight to celebrate their sort of two month anniversary. Steve’s giving her one of those Honey Bear Bongs.”

    “Steve talking about catching a matinee of Jennifer’s Body cus “Megan Fox is hot” but he’s unsure if he wants to watch her “eat dudes.””

    “Tried to wake Steve because he was going to miss class. Steve: “the first couple of classes don’t really matter” Then he fell back asleep.”

  2. You want twitter action: have Madd post all of the hate.hate.hate he has been tweeting to the Iron Sheik!

    All I know is this—at the end of the day one of them will be put in a camel clutch, one of them will be fucked in the ass, and one of them will contract aids.

  3. iron sheik posts are all love.love.love. dude is brilliant, and characters like him have been systematically eroded out of popular culture.

    i went to the top of that mountain and saw those weird birds.

    i saw a turtle of the sea.

  4. i’m glad you saw the flightless (in my mind) bobo’s of haleakala. You go to the atoll and swim with the fishes? Did you see Ariel? Did you meet the sea king?

  5. Whoa god, that Steve thing is gold:

    Steve asked if I would have any trouble “putting him down” if he became a Zombie. I told him it wouldn’t be a problem.

  6. those birds weren’t that weird though… like a duck fucked a crow, and then that baby fucked a baby loon, and that baby somehow got on top of a volcano with other step 3 baby loon-crow-ducks.

    yes, explored hana highway.

    i think i got there about 60 years late… too much mainland corporate interest. but at the same time, those corporate interests probably hustled the gov’t highway contracts to keep the hana highway paved. say-lah-vee. the whole island had an identity crisis… lots of bahama and jamaica themed stuff… errrrrrrrrr?????????????????

  7. I beat Rock Band: Beatles last night– I was really ripping the last level songs (on Expert!) which is cool, even though Beatles songs aren’t really guitar-ripping in nature.

  8. Whazzmaster, if I take you to Kohls and buy you a pair of Levi’s will you take down the Levi’s ad?

  9. If that exact movie starred Brew Barrymore and Luke Wilson they’d a slammed it (possible with a dildo).

  10. the google ad network does not allow adult content.

    i applied for edrugstrader and they denied the say saying it was adult content. pretending to buy and sell percocets while fake stories are generated that say that percocet prices are going up is not allowed… but everything here flys just fine.

    fucking hypocrites.

    eat a dick, google. wash it down with a bowl of dildos. then go fuck yahoo and make more shitty software. how come if i reply to a message in my trash on gmail it fucking refreshes every god damn second, scrolls me to the top of the page and then says i can’t save my draft until i move it out of the trash…. MOTHERFUCKER. WHY?! because “trash” was an afterthought because you wanted everyone to keep ALL their email FOREVER so you can build your fucking robots to mine all the data and rule the world? fuck your ass with 10 blue vibrating dildos with the little clit tickler arms sticking out. then, butt plugs. ass to mouth.

    sell your own ads directly. cut out the middleman. with a dildo.

  11. Edrug trader is still rolling?!??!!?!?

    The internet is getting shittier and shittier, just an ad wasteland. I especially hate sites that pretend to help you when you misspell something by redirecting you to a site FILLED WITH MORE ADS and a link to the real site. Bing, them fuckers are the new bitches in town. Ad is one letter away from aids and aids is something you are not allowed to talk about on pokerstas. Did I mean “pokerstars?” Nope, I didn’t.

  12. I hate google too.

    They burst on the scene pretending to be all noble but it was a Trojan rubber around a gigantic ad-dildo.

  13. i’ve never been to bing.com

    never will. just like i’ll never pee on a plane. just fucking sit down. and when we land, don’t fucking stand up. WHY ARE YOU ALL STANDING UP?!#%*(& in 2 god damn minutes you’ll be able to walk right off the plane. you’d rather stand hunched over with a confused look on your face about why no one is moving?! is this your first time doing anything, ever?

    FUCK BING.COM. FUCK PEEING ON PLANES. SIT THE FUCK DOWN.
