Pizza A la Emilia #nameadishchallenge
A pizza inspired by my friend Emilia Mig
I wanted to do another #nameadishchallenge. This one is in tribute to my friend Emilia Mig. I have got to know Emilia over the year plus time, so I hope she approves of the Pizza A la Emilia. I know that she really enjoys a good pizza, so that seemed like a good starting point. I wanted this pizza to be like her sense of humor, a little different but it always makes you smile.
I know she likes her bread so I started with a nice artisan flat bread for the crust. We all know the one thing she likes more than pierogi is... CHEESE! So I made a cheese sauce that I put on the flat bread crust. If you know Emilia you know she has a strong appreciation for potatoes so I whipped up some mashed potatoes with whole milk and butter and that went onto the cheese sauce along with some diced onions. I wanted to put some meat on this pizza so I thought it would be proper to add some slices of non-vegan chorizo. Of course I had to add more potatoes, so I fried some thinly sliced potatoes in some butter until they were crispy. Then came shredded cheddar and Italian blend cheese because you can never have too much cheese according to Emilia. After it come out of the oven I then added some ketchup and Sriracha
It has been a great honor to get to know Emilia over the last year and a bit. She can always make me laugh and smile. I appreciate her honesty, she is not afraid to tell you exactly what she thinks good or bad. If I ever have a question her mastery of Google - Fu is unmatched. I also know her temper is fiery and fast but thankfully never towards me. When I see a full moon I think of my friend Emilia. I hope we get to have many more odd, funny and even educational conversations. I love you my friend!
