Final lines from 'Mystic Pizza':
Jojo: You know what I wonder?
Jojo: What the hell do you think Leona really puts in that pizza?
This month we took a trip back to the 80's to see a film most of us remember watching for the first time, and for some of us, this was the first time.
By the end of the film the only thing we were left to wonder about is what we'd put in our pizza...or soup! Or whatever dish it was this movie inspired for you.
It would be no great surprise to anyone who knew me (Ree @ Milk, Sugar, Musings and Love) that given my first movie selection, I would choose a movie with the word 'pizza' in the title. After all, It is my favorite food that isn't ice cream.
What did surprise me was how creative everyone got this month. Thank you all for getting "Mystic" and your delicious additions to this months roundup.
Heather from Girlichef took her family to Germany...in the form of her show-stopping Oktoberfest inspired pizza. Although the kiddos would have preferred something more kid-friendly, This grown-up, complex and fabulous pizza is sure to please anyone old enough to enjoy it with a beer!
Inspired by the the setting in the little fishing town of Mystic, Ct. and the strong Portuguese-American influence, Deb in Hawaii from
Kahakai Kitchen made this beautiful, and I imagine, perfect on a cool day, Portuguese Bean Soup.
Since Natashya from Living in the Kitchen with Puppies couldn't locate the flick to watch this month, she drew on her memories from seeing the film twenty-odd years ago and made a "a fan-freaking-tastic pizza on a crispy caraway rye thin crust with a cream cheese sauce, topped with prosciutto, grilled pineapple, baby spinach, black pepper and cilantro" that surely blew EVERYBODY away with its creativeness!
