A Shantilly Picnic Recipe, from the baker herself.
Shanti and Josh made divine margherita and mushroom-sausage pizzas, adorned with tomatoes, basil, onions and other seasonal, farm-fresh delights. Grilled pizza is made by laying a stretched piece of dough directly on the grates over hot coals: cooking the first side, flipping it, topping it, then returning it to the fire to cook the second side. As the second side cooks, the cheese melts, and the sauce warms. It’s as simple as that. The three key elements to making pizza dough at home are: high heat, kneading technique, and starter and fermentation technique.
