Hello and welcome to this very special edition of Pizza and a Movie! I have mentioned the company we bought our wood fired oven from a few times before on the blog; and back in January, Mugnaini (moon-ya-ini) reached out to me about doing a collaboration. Of course I was super excited to work with them because we have been big fans of theirs since we went to the Mugnaini showroom for a cooking demonstration years ago. So today, instead of a movie recommendation to share with you, I have our movie! Djalali Cooks with Mugnaini. In addition to this being my first collaboration, it’s also my first video on my YouTube channel. I hope you enjoy the movie!
Djalali Cooks with Mugnaini
You may recognize the pizzas featured in the video; one of them is a pizza version of my Peach Caprese Salad. The other is a new take on a Mexican-style pizza. I use Andrea Mugnaini’s recipe for 3 Hour Pizza Dough, from her book, The Art of Wood Fired Cooking. If you’re interested in wood fired cooking, this cookbook is must-have! It’s chock full of great recipes that are surprisingly simple to prepare.
The Georgia Peach Pizza is simply mozzarella and sliced fresh peaches going into the oven. Coming out of the oven, it gets a drizzle of balsamic glaze and fresh basil leaves.
The Mexican Pizza utilizes leftover smoked pork shoulder, but you can substitute cooked Mexican chorizo. Mozzarella, smoked pulled pork, salsa verde, fresh corn kernels and pepper jack cheese top this pie. When it’s out of the oven, it gets some fresh cilantro.
