    I actually looked that up by the help of Reddit. A lot of Italian people don't care what you put on your pizza, they even have their own "strange" toppings.

    So you read it on Reddit? :D
    No the most trustworthy source imho... ;)
    And those will probably be the younger generation, who don't seem to care much about anything these days... except for views, likes and their own image! :(

    I'v watched several documentaries about different views on Pizza-making. There's so many ways to make and top Pizza.. in Italy, the rest of Europe, amd the US.
    When you go to a decent Pizzaria in Italy, you won't find the "Hawaii"!

    Originaly the toppings on a homemade Pizza (as it was with a lot of Italian dishes...), was whatever they could find!
    Some leftover tomatosause, bits of cheese, some pieces of bellpepper (paprika), mushrooms, etc. Things that needed to be used before they expired!

    But as for what people put on their own Italian-style-flatbread is ofcourse to each their own! :D

    Pizza was a food for poor people in Sicily, until Pizza Hut revolutionized pizza as we know it. Pretty much all pizza today is American pizza.

    That's the point, if they had pineapples in Italia they would have put pineapple on their pizza.

    Exactly.

    Pineapples (sweet) + ham (salty) + pizza dough (crunchy) = delicious

    Pineapple Pizza FTW

    Cooked up Macaroni Filoni. It's not like the bland boxed stuff sold to the masses by giant corporations to maximize profits. It's more like the stuff grandma used to make with love, and brings back warm memories of childhood.

    Did a fair bit of cooking around the New Year that I don't want to share just yet. But I've been working on my oatmeal recipe, and it's shaping up! (Although today's oatmeal was a tad too salty.) Today I flambeed a banana in a little rum and cognac. It was easily the best-flambeed banana I've had yet. It was so good I only put half of it in my oatmeal and ate the rest as is. I feel a little guilty about giving my parents just one slice each, so I'll probably try to recreate the banana tomorrow and give them a more.

    Ooohh... made with fresh Love? So yummie when done right!
    How do you prevent it from coagulating into lumps, when you add it to the sauce? ;)

    that sounds so good, would love to try it, however :

    1. We have no rum
    2. We have no cognac
    3. Flambé-ing sounds cool however with my luck I would burn the kitchen down

    I had my entirely boring breakfast of bran flakes and a sliced up banana on top

    I only switched to those because I used up all the brandy in the house. But rum is pretty cheap IIRC. I'm sure there are substitutes for flambéing out there for alcohol-free families as well! (I don't even like to drink; I just like to cook with alcohol.)

    I feel you. It's taken me a bit of time to get comfortable with flambéing, and that's with an electric stove. I will NEVER flambe with a gas stove...

    That still sounds good to me!

    Also, it's not just the flambe that makes the oatmeal special. I toast the oats in butter* for about 5 minutes (and stir occasionally at the beginning and constantly at the end) until they smell a little like popcorn. Then, dump them into the water/milk mixture that's been heating on a separate burner (follow the instructions of your container for measurements), and let it cook. Once it's about done, add in some evaporated milk, a dash of ginger, a larger dash of cinnamon, and enough (preferably light) brown sugar to taste, and you'll have a knock-out bowl of oatmeal.

    The above DOES take more time than just mixing everything together and popping it in the microwave for 3-5 minutes (which is delicious in its own right and definitely healthier), but the results are definitely worth it. It's great on days where you have a 4-day workday, so you want to treat yourself on that day off, but you don't want to forget the fact that it's still a work week.

    *I use about 2-3 tablespoons of salted per cup of oats. You can toast the oats without the butter, but I find that it makes them a lot chewier than I prefer. Toasting the oats in butter and the water/milk mixture give the oats a nice chew but everything is still creamy also. It's a good mix.

    EDIT:
    I've also discovered that since switching to Rum, I like the taste of the flambeed bananas more. It'll be a permanent thing going forward...whenever I buy more, that is.

    Use the Fork. It surrounds it, and unbinds it. (green)

    I'm almost ready to share all of the things I've baked and cooked (well, mostly baked) since the new year! It's been full of twists and turns, but my path has been leading me someplace dark in this wilderness we call a kitchen. All of my trials, accomplishments, and desires have been building towards this upcoming weekend. One meal that will most likely fail (like, I'm 99.99999999% sure this will fail on multiple levels), but if it succeeds, it can usher in a triumph like no other. For me at least. I've told my parents the idea, and they are somewhere between amused, resigned, and horrified.
    Stay tuned, because by next Tuesday, I'll have some stories to tell.

    Anyways, I put browned butter in my cream of wheat for the first time this weekend, and it was a long overdue addition! It added a nice little depth of flavor that the dish doesn't have naturally, and it paired well with brown sugar.

    In my defence they are almost the same colour as the dough so are easy to miss :)
