Pizza Braid

Pizza Braid
A pizza braid is very kid-friendly, easy on the wallet and extremely simple to make. My aunt and cousin first introduced me to them and I’ve been hooked ever since. The possibilities are endless of the varieties you could make (check out the Apple Dessert Braid!), but the recipe below is for a very basic hamburger and pepperoni braid. You could make your own dough, but I prefer the shortcut of using Rhodes rise and bake dough. This is one of my favorite shortcuts to make a nice loaf of bread or use in recipes like this one. As I said, this is extremely basic. The dough takes a few hours to rise, so I take it out in the morning and place a towel over it. Yes, yes the dough in that photo has not risen fully. Then you spread out the sauce, lay the meats down, followed by the cheese. Then with a pizza cutter, start cutting about 1 inch thick strips down the whole rectangle. Follow the pictures above. A few minutes before it’s done I brush with olive oil and sprinkle with oregano.

Classic Extra-Cheesy Macaroni and Cheese with Crunchy Crumb Topping Recipe from Simple Comforts by Sur La Table (Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2010) Serves 4 to 6 Hurray for real mac and cheese.

Cruftbox When Intelligentsia Coffee opened in Pasadena recently, I was intrigued the lasagna cupcakes they served. The cupcakes are made by Heirloom LA, a catering business. About the size of a muffin, a single lasagna cupcake was a delicious meal. An Amazing Meatball Sub Imagine if you will, a still-warm-from-the-oven baguette, enclosing a perfectly tender, moist meatball that has been roasted in the oven with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. The bread is just a little crispy on the outside, warm and soft inside, and the meatball just naturally becomes one with this bread, creating that perfect meatball/cheese/bread moment that truly defines a great meatball sub. Imagine no longer. I’m an absolute sucker for a good meatball, but when meatball meets bread, truly magical things are possible.
