Last weekend we had our good friends/pizza groupies and daughter in town for Gasparilla. Friday night’s pizza line up included:
1.) Gumbo Pizza with Shrimp and Andouille Sausage in a home-made roux and few red bell peppers thrown in for color, all topped with mixed cheeses!
2) Sweet Potato and Panchetta with a touch of sauteed onions, with assorted cheeses,
3) “Italian-style” Chicken Sausage and Pepper, with Italian cheeses.
A full array of #FuegoBox hot sauces were ready and standing by to augment the heat wherever needed!

To kick off the Independence Day weekend, cornmeal olive oil dough pizzas (deep-dish and hand-rolled) with puttanesca sauce and fresh mozzarella cheese at Casa Lembo.
Pizza One, on the top, Deep dish with puttanesca sauce, spinach and fresh mozzarella.
Pizza Two, on the bottom, hand-rolled, puttanesca sauce, a touch of chorizo, gouda and fresh mozzarella.
With a nod to Three Guys From Miami whose site helped us develop this idea (Gouda – nice!)
We were at a networking event discussing, what else, pizza and the idea of Hawaiian pizza (without pineapple) and Cuban pizza (without roasted pork) were kicked around. After a little thought and pinch of Google, we came up with a two Cuban pizzas, one ‘white,’ one ‘traditional.’
White Cuban Pizza – Cilantro pesto base, sliced gouda cheese, sliced chorizo, Anaheim pepper slices, and sweet plantains and a touch of Italian cheeses (it’s Tampa Cuban, after all). “Bammed” with a bit of roasted garlic powder and ground cumin just out of the oven!
Traditional Cuban Pizza – Roasted tomato base, sliced gouda and chorizo, Anaheim pepper slices, sprinkle of Italian cheeses and sweet plantains. A little oregano and cumin coming out of the oven.
Both were excellent, though the Cold Pizza Factor (CPF) on Saturday was a little low due the plantains (IMHO). Both did re-heat very well stove top in a frying pan!
Mussels, how do I love thee? Let us count the ways … That could go on for a while, so let’s get to tonite’s preparation: Sweet Potato Curry with Mussels!
A ‘Top Ten’ contender, for sure. Substitute chicken broth for vegetable broth, and a splash of cream for yogurt, but still a healthful and tasty dish. Maybe better suited for cooler temps, but not out of place in June.
Pair with salad, crusty bread and a light Riesling, or whtie wine of your choice – Enjoy!
