Eastern Mediterranean Pizza

Overall we loved this recipe.   The spices complemented the ground lamb splendidly.  It was just the right amount of spice.  Using all spice and cinnamon in savory dishes can be overwhelming if used too much.  This amount was perfect.  The spice also helped combine the sweet tomatoes with the savory lamb.  The crunch and toasty-ness from the pine nuts brought a lovely depth of flavor and texture.  The small individual size pizzas were a nice change of large pizza pies.

Puff Pastry Pizza

I remember eating Pepperidge Farms puff pasty pizza when I was a kid.  It was a long, narrow rectangular pizza, and the crust was super puffy.  Usually mozzarella cheese was the only topping.  I’ve recreated it here, with a mostly homemade version.  Since puff pastry is one of those items that is way easier to purchase than to make, and the quality is still good, I buy it from the store.  I prefer the Trader Joe’s brand puff pastry, if you can find it, since it is made from the most natural ingredients.

This is a favorite combination in our house.  The sweet Italian sausage adds wonderful flavor and works well in combination with the pizza sauce and roasted red peppers.  If you wish you could also use a spicy Italian sausage.

Here’s a unique pizza combining sweet fresh figs, salty prosciutto, and tangy Point Reyes Blue cheese.  Sprinkle on some peppery wild arugula and top with a drizzle of sweet balsamic reduction and you have a flavor powerhouse pizza.  Sweet, salty, tangy, and peppery all these strong flavors help to balance one another for a divine pizza.
