@ossobuco,
I meant to do pizza paintings, but failed as we tended to eat them before I got photos.

@ossobuco,
I can see the difficulty in this problem. The pizza is just too tempting to hold onto it long enough for it to be an artistic model for inspiration and such.

@tsarstepan,
forget about pizza

it is so 1970's

find a nice neighbourhood Turkish restaurant and get yourself a pide

best of all, most of the little mom/pop joints will do a half/half mmmmm

there are instructions for homemade pide on that page

http://www.ilkeskitchen.com/2012/11/pide-trials/

yum

they're right - the ones with an egg baked on top are amazing

I'll take that as a challenge. I'll try and find some within the next week or two. Very Happy

@tsarstepan,
and if you find a pide joint, look around for a nearby Turkish grocery store and see if they've got simit

http://www.azcookbook.com/imageuploads/2010/03/simit.jpg

they're like skinny, all-edge, super crusty/chewy bagels

so amazing

usually Turkish breakfast is a really good deal is you can find a Turkish restaurant in your part of town (I suspect you'll find a nice Turkish neighbourhood)

@ehBeth,
The pides look like a bunch of strombolis with their insides exposed. What kind of meats? I hope no goat or sheep.

Ive had a pizza already that was made with layers of falafel dough, very crispy but with the sauces.

@farmerman,
pide fillings/toppings can be whatever you like

I'm a fan of feta/spinach on one half and on the other half spiced minced beef with an egg baked on top

stromboli is made with bread dough - too dry for me usually

pide bases are more like doughy pizza - I like the stretch of a good one

@ehBeth,
I'm late to trying three day rise after no/knead pizza. We'll see. Tomorrow is day three. I may have to put it off, what with my tamale escapades, but apparently day 4 or 5 is ok.

@ossobuco,
They're pretty new to Toronto - we've had a lot of Turkish immigrants in the last decade - they're finally developing a neighbourhood. I'm beyond giddy that it's really close to us. It's like Greek food kicked up a taste and technique notch, with a lovely Afghani/subcontinental influence.

I really wish I'd been on the ball enough to go to Istanbul 20 or 30 years ago. It must have been amazing.

@ehBeth,
And I could whack myself when I had a chance to go to Japan and didn't.. My teacher/later and now friend knew and still does, so much - too long to describe. I could have used credit - much better than for a refrigerator.

We still talk via email.
