I was excited for this one. It sounded Fancy-Schmancy to me. And I like to pretend I am Fancy-Schmancy sometimes. I figured my kids wouldn't with me on this one. I think their taste buds are less refined than mine. *Mine are very refined.
I halved the recipe (*weird, right, I never do that) and used the other half of the dough to make the kids a regular cheese and pepperoni pizza. Tyler was a sport and shared this one with me. Although, when I wasn't looking, he was trying to trade Calvin pizzas. Calvin wasn't having it.
I was afraid the blue cheese was going to be too much for us. It's a strong flavor and I tasted it while I was getting ready to make it. I was sure it would be too much for Tyler so I did half with feta cheese and half with blue cheese. I liked them both. Surprisingly, Tyler liked the blue cheese better. I didn't have any green onions but I can say with confidence that they would have been delicious on this. I think next time, (Tyler wouldn't approve of 'next time') I would make a kind-of pesto out of the cheese, walnuts and green onions. Then spread that on the pizza and top it with the caramelized onions. Only because I am not a huge fan a big chunks. While I liked the flavors, I would have liked all of them more evenly distributed in each bite. And my walnuts fell off sometimes.
I used my favorite pizza crust recipe (with all bread flour and no wheat this time) and it's was delicious. I am going to try the one in the book again soon to see if it was just a fluke the time I didn't love it.
For an update, I didn't win the photo contest! *Can you believe that a photo of me sitting by the pool didn't beat all of those photos of vacuuming and sewing and such? *It's almost like someone doesn't know what domestic means.
