This is round 2 of pizza day!!!
Okay - so yesterday I went out for wings...omg, soooo good; and I am surprised that I totally don't have a hangover considering I had red and white wine, some beer and shots of Grey Goose with the birthday boy. But I am nooooot complaining. 
So yesterday, Amazon came to the house in a timely fashion and dropped of my lovely Dean Bros book and I am quite impressed with it. There are some recipes that I just skimmed through that I am already dying to try and will definitely share with you. 
I will write a better review a little later on of the book. :) 
I am also excited because I heard that Nadia G is going to be coming out with ANOTHER cookbook! I loooove her first one, it is sooo fun to read! I love reading cookbooks like they are novels. They can be quite interesting and you get to look into the lives of the chefs...one of my favorites is Tyler Florence - he's a pretty cool dude! And Guy Fieri - I seriously could go on. I just love Food Network and everyone on there but enough rambling and lets get to cooking some pizza...or just staring at the picture...salivating. ;)
The next recipe's picture will sure get you into a pizza mood.

Bon Appetit!

Mortadella-and-Mozzarella Pizza
Mozzarella di bufala is available at most supermarkets, and at dibruno.com. Mortadella, a smoked sausage, is available at Whole Foods and other specialty-food stores. 

Makes one 12-inch pizza

1 round Chris Bianco's Pizza Dough {or whatever you find @ your grocery store}
4 ounces fresh mozzarella {di vufala or fior de latte}, excess liquid squeezed out, thinly sliced
4 thin slices mortadella, halved to form semicircles {about 1 ounce}
1 small garlic clove, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh thyme
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes

Arrange cheese evenly over dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with the mortadella, garlic, and thyme. Drizzle with oil. 

Broil and bake pizza, as directed. Drizzle with more oil, and sprinkle with red-pepper flakes. 

I am a huuuuge fan of mortadella, I was obsessed with the stuff when I was a kid - it's sooo yummy. And I know that the directions in this recipe aren't the greatest, so you guys can probably follow the directions from the previous pizza posts. Just make sure that you keep an eye on it! Happy Eating! :D
