Last month, I attended the Food Blog Forum which was held at Disney. While there, we received the royal treatment: 2 nights at the Polynesian Resort, welcome reception at the Grand Floridian, gourmet meals, park tickets, and special viewing of the Illuminations show at Epcot. I met tons of fabulous food bloggers, listened to sessions by food blogging rock stars, and met with representatives of the event sponsors.
Two of our sponsors were Kitchenaid and OXO. One of the things they did was provide some fun kitchen tools in our swag bag. My favorite by far was the mandolin slicerfrom OXO. It quickly became my favorite kitchen gadget. Look how thin and even these brussels sprout slices are!
- Place a pizza stone on the bottom rack of an oven. Preheat oven to 450°F.
- Roll out pizza dough into a thin circle. Let dough rest and re-stretch until it is the desired thinness. Lightly flour a pizza board and place dough on it. Drizzle olive oil onto the pizza dough and brush to evenly coat the surface. Layer mozzarella cheese, proscuitto, and brussels sprouts over the dough. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
- Transfer pizza to the pizza stone. Bake until the cheese begins to brown and the crust is crisp, about 10-12 minutes. Remove pizza from oven, and sprinkle with black pepper. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
