GRILLED BACON, TOMATO, AVOCADO AND CHEESE SANDWICHES
Sensational flavor in every bite!

Ingredients: (Makes 3 to 4 sandwiches)

1 – 10oz. package Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon
4 – Oroweat, Thin Sandwich Buns (or other bread of choice)
2 – tomatoes, sliced thin and seasoned with salt and pepper
2 – avocados, sliced thin, with a squeeze of lime and seasoned with salt & pepper
4 – ounces mozzarella or provolone cheese
Olive Oil
Basil Pesto

Preparation:

1) In a large, heavy skillet, heat about two tablespoons olive oil, over a medium high, gas grill burner. Add bacon and pan fry until crispy. This process may need to be done in two or more batches based on pan size.
2) Transfer cooked bacon to a paper lined platter and let rest for a minute. Place the bacon on a cutting board and chop coarsely (this makes it easier to eat).
3) Preheat gas grill to medium heat, around 350*.
4) While the grill is heating, generously brush the outside of the sandwich buns with olive oil and place the oiled side on a cookie sheet. Spread the inside of the buns with the basil pesto, and then layer each side with cheese. Divide and place the chopped bacon on one side of the buns and layer the other side with the sliced tomatoes and then the avocado.
5) Place the cookie sheet on the pre-heated grill and close the lid. Grill for about 6 minutes, or until the bottom of the buns are browned and crispy.
6) Remove the cookie sheet from the grill. Place the bacon side on top of the tomato avocado side and gently press together. Cut in half and serve.
So good!

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Storing Avocados………………………..

When whole avocados are perfectly ripe, use them immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to five days (and perhaps longer, depending on your refrigerator). The taste and texture should closely resemble a fresh, room-temperature avocado. You can also store whole avocados in the freezer!

One of America’s Favorites – California-Style Pizza

January 7, 2019 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Pizza topped with egg from the Chez Panisse cafe

California-style pizza (also known as California pizza or Gourmet pizza) is a style of single-serving pizza that combines New York and Italian thin crust with toppings from the California cuisine cooking style. Its invention is generally attributed to chef Ed LaDou, and Chez Panisse, in Berkeley, California. Wolfgang Puck, after meeting LaDou, popularized the style of pizza in the rest of the country. It is served in a number of California Cuisine restaurants. Such restaurant chains as California Pizza Kitchen, Extreme Pizza, and Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza are three major pizza franchises associated with California-style pizza.

California-style pizza was invented more or less simultaneously in 1980 by Ed LaDou (the “Prince of Pizza”), then working as pizza chef for Spectrum Foods’ Prego Restaurant in San Francisco’s Cow Hollow neighborhood, and by pizza chefs working for Alice Waters at the Chez Panisse cafe in Berkeley, California.

LaDou had learned pizza-making in the 1970s as a teenager at Frankie, Johnnie & Luigi Too, a traditional New York-style pizzeria in Mountain View, California. He made pizzas briefly at Ecco, an upscale restaurant at the Hyatt Hotel in Palo Alto, California, before starting at Prego. Although Prego specialized in classic, Italian-style thin crust pizzas, its chefs encouraged LaDou to experiment with prosciutto, goat cheese, and truffles in their wood-burning oven, and send his results to guests. At one table, to whom he served an off-menu invention involving mustard, ricotta, pâté and red pepper turned out to be chef Wolfgang Puck.

California-style pizza with greens, egg, bacon, and garden vegetables

By 1980, Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse and its head chef, Jeremiah Tower, had already invented California cuisine, a combination of French and Italian techniques and presentation with fresh local ingredient-focused flavors. Waters was a long-time fan of Tommasso’s Italian restaurant in San Francisco’s North Beach, which had installed the West Coast’s first wood-fired pizza oven when it opened in 1935. After traveling to Italy, Waters decided to make an open kitchen featuring a Tomasso’s-style pizza oven the focus of the new cafe she was opening above her main dining room. Although prepared in classic fashion, her chefs added exotic fine ingredients to their single-serving pizzas and calzones, such as goat cheese and duck sausage. Her cafe, and its pizzas in particular, were an instant success, attracting wide attention among food critics.

Wolfgang Puck, in 1980 and 1981, was preparing to open the restaurant that would make him famous, Spago, in West Hollywood, California. Initially conceived as a pizzeria, Spago’s was modeled after the upstairs cafe at Chez Panisse. He was so impressed with the pizza LaDou had made for him at Prego, he hired LaDou as head pizza chef. Under Puck’s guidance, LaDou developed more than 250 pizza concepts using ingredients such as scallops, roe, and baby zucchini flowers. Among their most famous invention was “Jewish pizza”, a pizza dough first cooked then topped with smoked salmon, crème fraîche, capers, and dill. Another innovation was using infused olive oil, baby vegetables, chili oil, and flavored dough.

In 1985 LaDou helped two inexperienced lawyer-restaurateurs, Richard L. Rosenfeld and Larry S. Flax, start a new restaurant concept, California Pizza Kitchen (also known as “CPK”). He brought them many of Spago’s recipes, which he had carefully saved. The new restaurant borrowed the concept of open kitchens centered around wood-burning pizza ovens from Spago, but instead of exotic gourmet ingredients it used innovative but simpler comfort food toppings. When the new restaurant’s chef quit less than a month before opening, LaDou quickly designed and cooked an entire menu, inventing the now-ubiquitous barbecue chicken pizza on the spot. LaDou also helped develop pizza menus for Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza and the Hard Rock Cafe.

Both Wolfgang Puck and California Pizza Kitchen were instrumental in turning California-style pizza from a gourmet food trend to a mass consumer food product. Based on the success of his pizzas and his status as a celebrity chef, Puck opened a series of restaurants, ranging from high end clones of Spago, to convenience chains for airports and mall food courts. California Pizza Kitchen grew to 200 outlets. Both introduced frozen pizzas, but after an early success Puck’s supermarket lines were overtaken by CPK’s, which are backed by Kraft foods.
