Here are the results of the Jake’s pizza cook-off- look and weep!
This is what it should look like before you cook it- a virtual Mt. Vesuvius of toppings. And I’m totally serious. For a Jakes Combo pizza, here is what MUST be on it, in this order:
Crust, tomato sauce, real mozzarella cheese. Canadian bacon, salami, pepperoni, mushrooms, green bell peppers, onion, black olives, Italian sausage, ground beef, linguica, Louisiana Hot Sausage, topping cheese.
And here is what it looks like after 18-20 minutes in a 500* oven on a blisteringly hot clay pizza stone:
Does that or does it not look awesome? And for those of you in the know about what a Jakes pizza should look like- pretty good, eh?
This mountain of pizza cannot be cut with a wheel- cut it like they do at Jakes- with a great big knife, rocked back and forth so as not to lose your toppings…
It’s all gone already… DH took the rest of it to work today… sob.
Now, I must be off to actually MEASURE what I did so I can share it with you! Recipe coming soon! Darn, that means we have to have pizza, AGAIN, tonight. I’m sure the family will be crushed.
