Digest: Pizza a Casa
Posted by Michael Stern on Sunday, August 24, 2014 1:11 PM

Steve and Julia Rushmore recently hosted an amazing pizza party, starring (pictured above) Jennifer and Mark Bello and their assistant, Jenn, of New York's Pizza a Casa pizza-making school. I thought I knew how to make pizza at home, but got a whole new perspective on every aspect of it from Mark, giving me new inspiration to make more pizza at home. After watching Mark's incredibly entertaining demonstration of exactly how to do it, invited guests competed to see who made the best.

Our "clamless white clam pizza" took second prize. (Stephen Rushmore was one of the judges, and knowing how he likes clam pizza gave us an inside track.) Only after the pies came out of the oven did I learn that Mark had, in fact, brought clams to the event and I could have actually made a real clam pizza!!

All of us who attended took home some of the dough we made, and the next day I baked this wicked-good roasted red pepper pizza, using the techniques we learned. I look forward to returning to Mark's school in New York for a refresher course, as well as for his own four-star pizza.
