Pizza Quattro Stagioni

Delicious pizza recipe, based on famous Italian recipe Quattro Stagioni | BakingGlory.com

Quattro Staggioni (four seasons in English) is something that you would not find at your regular pizza place. This pizza sounds too much more like a sampler if you ask me but I remember enjoying it some years ago in a long lost restaurant in a different country. This is all that I usually need to start digging information about a specific recipe, so here it is. It is divided in four sectors with different ingredients, one for each season. Probably Italians thought of this one too but for some reason I cannot find any lore about it, maybe is a closed guarded secret or they don’t really care too much about it. However, there are some basic rules regarding what ingredients go with what season, for example: spring belongs to cooked ham (prosciutto cotto) and black olives, summer goes with artichokes and anchovies, autumn with tomatoes mixed with mozzarella and finally winter, simply mushrooms. Personally I got lost when reading about artichokes because I don’t really like them but then I thought, “dude, you’re a foodie, grow a pair” so I went on with it, with some changes of my own of course.

Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls

Another oven experiment, this time testing a Finnish recipe with North American personality. I am not a fan of cinnamon rolls, those sweet things with weird icing on top, I find them too rich and too sweet and the after taste gives me nausea. Unfortunately I am…

The Best Soft Pretzels

Soft Pretzels

Who doesn’t like pretzels, right? Personally I love them, probably on the second spot right behind pizza in my top ten faves but it is pretty hard to make them at home, at least that was my experience until now.

Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast Pizza

Pretty amazing, eh? I mean I love pizza but I never thought of making it into a breakfast dish before. The addition of eggs on top of all ingredients really made sense, think bacon and eggs on a slice of pizza crust.

I have been trying to write this post for a while now but I always seem to be stuck on pizza for some reason. Well, actually pizzas are more fun to make and really delicious if you ask me but I guess it is a personal thing.
