Oil Cruet For Pizzeria. As he tells us Wikipedia, a cruet is generally a container to be placed at the table intended to serve oil. The oil jug is equipped with a spout to prevent the oil from dripping and often has a handle to facilitate use. They are produced of any material, glass, steel, ceramic, copper, etc.
On the counter of any pizza chef, wherever it is in the world, there is an oil tank to make a good impression. Who doesn't own one yet, will certainly be delighted to see this wonderful selection of cruets to choose from.
Pizza with anchovies, rocket and potatoes. Despite Covid, the winter season is already planned. In a few months all the pizzerias in the mountains on the snow will reopen. As every year, emails begin to arrive at our school with requests for pizza chefs from various locations around the world.
This morning I made some phone calls between the guys who took the course and to my great satisfaction I couldn't find one who was unemployed. This is reality, the figure of the pizza chef is an increasingly sought-after job. I suggest you sign up for one of our professional practical courses that we organize in our pizza school. See how to sign up.
Anchovies, rocket and potatoes
The pizza that I suggest today is one of a kind, delicious and to lick i moustache. It is a classic tomato-based pizza with the addition of anchovies, garlic and rosemary. After cooking, we added fresh rocket and grilled diced potatoes.
I used the verb "we" because as you well know, actually I'm not making the pizzas, but they are made by the students who sign up for my weekly Professional workshops, that come from all over the world. At the end of the course they are already able to prepare excellent pizzas and most of them will soon open their own pizzeria.
Below is the video of the preparation of this delicious pizza.

Pizza With Grilled Vegetables and Bacon. Today's super pizza is the classic and best-selling pizza with vegetables grilling. As you say? It's not true? If you are among those who say otherwise, I guess why no one orders this pizza from you anymore.
In pizzerias, classic frozen grilled vegetables are often used. They are very comfortable, just open the freezer, take a sliced courgette, a sliced eggplant and a layer of pepper, all frozen and slap them on a pizza, maybe even with the tomato base, which with its acidity completely covers the flavor of the vegetables (frozen).
Pizza With Grilled Vegetables and Bacon
But ... do you really think some customers might like this mess you made up? Of course not. Making a pizzeria is a sacrifice, go to the market, buy seasonal vegetables and grill them and flavor them yourself. Only in this way will you win back your customers.
Maybe add some diced bacon as I did in the video below, without exaggerating, you will see that the taste of this almost vegetarian pizza will return to being one of the most requested pizzas in your pizzeria.

The Pizza Prosciuttella. I remember in my childhood when my mother sent me to the local supermarket by bicycle to buy some cold cuts for a snack, there was a wide selection to choose from, I liked a particular salami: The Prosciuttella. More and more difficult today to find in large supermarkets, the Prosciuttella seems to be slowly disappearing, fewer and fewer specialized companies produce it, for those unfamiliar with it it is a typical salami with a shape that resembles a little mortadella but flat, contains a mix of cooked ham and mortadella.
This week in our pizza school Mr. Nuno came to visit us from the beautiful city of Porto in Portugal. Nuno had never tasted Prosciuttella, being a typical Italian salami. Here is that during the preparation of our morning breakfast I decided to prepare the Prosciuttella pizza.
The Pizza Prosciuttella
I invite all gourmands to prepare this pizza next weekend, when you prepare the usual pizza at home. Take care to buy a good cooked ham and a good quality mortadella, are the basic requirements for the success of this pizza.
Another tip I can give you, is not to use mozzarella for the topping of this delicious pizza, but add cooked ham and mortadella only after cooking, perhaps baking a simple marinara with garlic, then add everything.
The Buonissima Prosciuttella
The preparation video will certainly help you.

Pizza With Ham, Peppers and Anchovies. This is a true gourmet pizza, pizza for smokers as a dear friend of mine would say. This week in our school of pizza chefs, Mr. Francisco di Estoril Portugal.
The Portuguese, when we talk about food, they have a lot in common with the Italians, same culture, from cod to anchovies to scottadito, grilled fish, they even have their own version of Sicilian arancini. The only difference that stands out between the two cultures is certainly the rice that accompanies all their dishes, while here we don't have lunch without "bread".

Focaccia with Tomato and Poppy Seeds. Today in our school of Pizzaioli we prepare a special pizza: It is an OPPIO pizza. The common poppy it is widespread in Italy, it grows spontaneously on the roadsides, along the railways and among the wheat fields. It is a close relative of the opium poppy from which morphine is extracted and the petals and seeds have mild sedative properties.
It is widely used in pastry, in baking and generally in the kitchen, and it is permitted by law as once poppy seeds lose their hallucinogenic properties.

A great oven for cooking pizza at home. Every time we prepare pizza at home we notice that our kitchen oven is not suitable for cooking pizza.
The pizza must be cooked in a very short time, maybe 4 the 5 minutes would be the perfect time for cooking, to prevent it from drying out.
