Chicago-Style Stuffed Pizza

Chicago-Style Stuffed Pizza Recipe - Andrea Meyers

I had my first taste of stuffed pizza at Giordano’s as a teenager. Years later while working in Chicago I frequented several of the great pizzerias, but the stuffed pizza at Giordano’s always kept me coming back. I tend to prefer a more traditional single crust hand-tossed style of pizza, but Michael does such a good job on these that I feel like I’m back in Chicago. This is Michael’s specialty and favorite kind of pizz…

…her variation of this dough formula. It’s been two years since I wrote about Reinhart’s Napoletana pizza dough (recipe posted there), but time has not diminished my adoration of this dough, and I gladly played along with this month’s Daring Baker challenge.

An Afternoon in New York City

…it for another trip. Of course getting some lunch was an important goal, and I set off to find Co.,  Jim Lahey’s pizza restaurant.

Italian Herb Twist Bread (pane alle erbi)

Michael walked into the kitchen the other night and said, “Wow! Did you make that?” Yes, I did, and it was pretty darn easy. Seriously, this is one of the easiest breads I’ve made from Daniel Leader’s book, Local Breads, and it’s also one of the prettiest. My three-year-old and I had fun rolling and twisting the bread, and the specks of fresh herbs and the haunting flavor of the ground coriander mingle well with th…
