Structural variations of pizza, etc. Sun, 03/30/08 8:41 PM (permalink)
In our quest for truth, I googled pizza and found some good stuff. One idea was something I was already struggling with: what are the "other" things that are often sold in a pizza store (from remnant dough).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pizza
Wikipedia calls this Structural Variations, to wit:

Stromboli
Calzone
Garlic Knots
I add: sausage rolls.

Also: Ethnic Variations: Greek pizza, Lahmacun , Manakish ,Mexican pizza,Pissaladière , Sardenara , Sicilian pizza

Also: Miscellaneous Variations: Tomato pie, Pizza bagel,Grilled pizza, Deep-fried pizza, Garlic fingers, Hawaiian pizza

Also: In the 20th century and onward, pizza has become an international food and the toppings may vary considerably in accordance with local tastes..diverse choice of ingredients, such as anchovies, egg, pineapple, banana, coconut, sauerkraut, eggplant, kimchi, lamb, couscous, chicken, fish, pierogies, french fries, shellfish, meats prepared in styles such as Moroccan lamb, shawarma or chicken tikka masala, and non-traditional spices such as curry, cilantro, cumin, and Thai sweet chili.

Now, RFers, we know as much as Wikipedia. What to you want to add?

    I'm not sure I agree with the wiki submitter who added garlic knots. Just really good rolls to me. I can see the others as variations of pizza.

      Yes, but if the garlic knots are made from pizza dough - they meet the criteria set forth in NYNM's opening sentence.

        OK, but then that sentence does not go with the rest of the post. The knots are listed under structural variation. Calzones are hardly just a use for remnant dough of the second sentence. Or were you referring to the phrase "good stuff" of the first sentence? Then, I agree all work.

          To those of an observing eye and a keen mind, I am the one who added garlic knots, not Wikipedia, only because they come from pizza dough; perhaps they are pizza without cheese, sauce or other ingredients except garlic, restructured into a knot shape. (not? knot?)

            You wanted me to go to that link?

            I guess a calabrese salad is another pizza variation, then, as it is pizza that just lacks the dough. It's a low carb pizza. Sometimes I also want a very plain tasting low carb pizza so I forgo some toppings. I call it string cheese, but it's, you know, just pizza without a few things.

                Wikipedia can be as bad as a discussion board where no one completely agrees. Subjects are so ever changing that they can be worthless. I've followed but never edited the Pork Tenderloin Sandwich Wiki over most of its lifetime. At one time it was pretty thorough and accurate. Now it is a distorted false mess.

                    Might as well include West Virginia's Pepperoni Roll.

                        What about a mushroom? Right? It's a mushroom pizza without the dough or the cheese or the sauce.

                          We've been to Pizzeria Paradiso and 2 Amys. I've been told by my daughter we will be going to Ella's next time.

                            By the verizon center. You should check out matchbox pizza while you are down there. Pizza is decent, but their sliders appetizers are great. If you want an appetizer at a seperate location.
