Still new to the homemade pizza game. I have premade pizza dough, but out of mozzarella, only have brie, cheddar and parm reg. Any ideas for pizza recipes with these cheeses or no cheese at all? thanks!
I would stick with the Parmesan. You could make this http://food52.com/recipes... with just the Parmesan or maybe pancetta shredded Brussels and Parmesan with just some oil as the base.
My favorite pizza has no cheese at all. It's simply crushed tomatoes, chopped garlic, olive oil drizzle, salt and pepper. However, you can (and I do) top pizzas with any cheese I have on hand or feel like. Brie is not a good grating cheese, Don't think I'd use that, but Parm is standard, and Cheddar can be just fine. Of course, it's not going to taste like Mozzarella.
Friday is homemade pizza night for us. I am a slave to thin crust, crushed Italian tomato (buy at an Italian deli....not the salt laden Hunts/Heinz tins), then a liberal amount of gorgonzola cheese chunks and caramelized onion slices.
In your case, sub the brie. (but since you are going to the Italian deli for the right tomatos, get some gorgonzola too - you will not be disappointed.)
If you want to walk on the wild side, toss a few strips of anchovie...a great contrast. But the ones from Italy in the glass jar. Sorry, Safeway just does not have the right imported stuff, and Whole Foods doubles the price that you would find at a nice Italian deli. Every town has one, every city has many.
First, here is my own recipe; http://food52.com/recipes.... Brie belongs nowhere in the vicinity of a pizza.
The Roman version of pizza, pizza bianca or "white pizza", is dressed with little more than olive oil, onions, garlic and pecorino cheese. And it's almost always rectangular.
I absolutely love home made pizza and making my own pizza creations. I found a video of amazingly delicious looking pizza ideas. I cant even watch this video unless i've recently eaten because it makes me hungry and my stomach rumble (actually it does even if I have just eaten)
the potato + pear + brie idea looks interesting... will try since I have all the ingredients!
Brie, apples (raw or sautéed), bacon and arugula! Mix it up and make a calzone!
