The Perfect Pizza!


Since Vic created his own unique pizza oven from a barrel, he has been experimenting with building the proper fire, perfecting the dough recipe and finding the perfect toppings (not a bad way to spend time!). Pizza experts agree that the two basic things that will make your pizza a success are the pizza dough and pizza sauce and Vic has seemed to master both!


The Dough

Traditionally in the Mediterranean, flour dough was baked on a large hot stone in the fireplace, creating a crisp, thin flatbread that was part of a staple diet.  The cooking conveyances evolved and wood-fired ovens replaced the hot stones - the result was the same thin, light crust but with a bit of wood charring, giving it a lovely smoky flavor.  In keeping with this long tradition, Vic has created a “Bourizza” dough recipe that is full proof for both a regular oven and a woodfire oven. Check out his “secret” recipe, try it and let us know what you think! 

The Sauce

The other most important ingredient in pizza is the sauce - originally, the flatbread was loaded with local fresh ingredients:  fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, and fresh mozzarella make up the traditional “Margarita” pizza.  But these days we also like to enjoy a little sauce on the crisp crust, so Vic has created a wonderful Fire Roasted Tomato Pizza Sauce that can be used with any toppings - you are only limited by your imagination!

Pairing your pizza

The final step of the pizza-making process is choosing the toppings - in the winter, choose meats and hearty vegetables and pair it with a lovely Cabernet or Syrah.  In warmer weather, the traditional Margarita Pizza is always a favorite and will go with almost any wine - Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah or even a lovely Chardonnay.  Mix and match, taste and enjoy - it is all about “Celebrating Life!”
