Pizza Contest - Need Topping Ideas!!

I'm using a baking stone...buying the dough from Trader JOes. I like the idea of a half sheet pan crust!

Pizza Contest - Need Topping Ideas!!

I was reading this article: http://www.realfoodtraveler.com/2011/...
It's where I got the idea for fig preserves...but you may be right, it might be too rich.

Pizza Contest - Need Topping Ideas!!

Some friends and I decided to do a Pizza making contest this weekend. I'm trying to come up with a tasty, yet different topping combo. Here's what I have so far: a fig preserve base topped with shredded mozzarella and sliced truffles. I'm considering adding caramelized onions, prosciutto and maybe sage. What do you all think? Does that sound like a good combo that would compliment each other...or are their too many flavors going on? Anything I should add or remove? Any tips would help a lot!! I would test this out myself to see how it is....but am a little short on time. Thanks!!

Aidells Chicken & Apple Sausage vs. Trader Joe's version

I love Aidells Chicken & Apple Sausage but heard that Trader Joe's has a pretty good chicken sausage as well. Has anyone tried it? Anyone have a preference between the two?

Desserts using Green Tea Ice Cream

Thanks for the suggestions! Funny you should mention the drink, it was the only 'recipe' I found when I searched google: http://nymag.com/listings/recipe/grap...
It actually sounds pretty good!

Desserts using Green Tea Ice Cream

My boyfriend loves green tea ice cream, so I bought a pint to serve as dessert for our Valentine's dinner...however, I want to do something fun with it. After searching the internet, I found a lot of desserts that used ice cream, but none specifically for green tea ice cream. Most of the ones I found used vanilla - and when looking at the rest of the ingredients, it didn't seem that green tea flavors would mesh well.

Does anyone have a recipe or ideas on how to make a fun, easy dessert w/ green tea ice cream? Thanks!

Manzana (apple) Margarita Recipe Needed

My boyfriend talks about an apple margarita he used to enjoy at a Seattle restaurant - claiming it was the best margarita he had ever had. Turns out, the restaurant took it off its menu because it was time intensive - it involved muddling fresh apple pieces - and I guess in the end, although it was well-liked, it wasn't worth the trouble for the bartenders. I tried contacting the restaurant, but haven't had any luck getting the recipe. Does anyone have a similar sounding margarita recipe that involves muddled apples and a sugar rim? Sorry - this is all I know of the drink's contents. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!
