CAST IRON PIZZA

last summer i went on a serious pizza kick, making it at home with dough from trader joe’s and all sorts of produce from the farmers market. i was making it on a baking sheet for the longest time because we have a pizza stone but it won’t fit in my oven from the 1950’s. and then i realized i should be making it in our ! it’s the perfect size and i pre-heat it in the oven before putting the dough inside so the bottom actually gets crispy which is one of my biggest complaints about homemade pizza, i hate a doughy crust! a cast iron pan is a total must have in a kitchen, really inexpensive and if you maintain it well it will last you a lifetime! one of my favorite ways to make a pizza is to make the base a super simple cheese pizza and then throw together a big salad and serve it directly on top with a little olive oil and lemon! it’s seriously delicious and a pretty balanced meal if you ask me. – joanie 

what you’ll need:

• 1 package of pre made pizza dough room temperature (from Trader Joes)
• olive oil
• 1/2 red onion diced
• 4 – 6 cups arugula
• 1 avocado diced
• 1/2 lemon juiced
• parmesan cheese
• 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (more or less based on your desired cheesiness!)
• 2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
• 1 shallot thinly slice
• salt and pepper to taste

• preheat oven to 425 degrees. place cast iron in oven to heat up for at least 20 minutes.

• fry the shallots: put about 1 inch of oil on medium heat in a pan. once hot, add the thinly sliced shallots and fry till browned. remove and set aside on paper towels.

• remove cast iron from the oven and brush with olive oil. carefully stretch the pizza dough into a circle and place into the cast iron, covering the bottom. brush dough with olive oil, spread a layer of mozzarella cheese and garlic slices on top of the dough and bake the pizza for 15 minutes. you want your cheese to be golden brown!

• in a large bowl place the arugula. add the red onion, avocado, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper

• once the cast iron is out of the oven place the arugula salad over the pizza and garnish with shaved parmesan and the fried shallots. cut into slices and serve while hot. enjoy!

do you have any fave cast iron recipes?!

LOS ANGELES CONSIGNMENT STORES!

 image found

as promised i’ve put together a list of my favorite los angeles consignment/second hand stores! my favorite ones offer a mix of new and vintage clothing items. the thing to remember with these stores is that some of them are hit or miss, just because you went once and didn’t find anything doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go back. also, it’s important that you have an open mind, be willing to try on lots of things without expectation, think outside the box when it comes to sizing as it has changed so much over the years, and try on things that might be unexpected, you never know what you’ll fall in love with! – joanie

– located in frog town, this is one of my favorites in the city partly because their stock is great and rotates all the time and partly because the owner is super sweet and i like supporting her. you should definitely because she shares stories of what’s new and it always makes me want to stop in. this is your place if you like vintage denim, tees, 90’s rayon and cool accessories like belts and earrings.

– there are multiple locations in the city but i think the is the best, it’s not as overwhelming as the one in west hollywood and i always seems to score. they have a specific section that is vintage and that’s generally where i head first but they have a great mix of new and vintage items. i also recommend checking out the men’s t-shirt and sweatshirt section. i snagged a vintage gucci sweatshirt there about 12 years ago and still love it to this day. worth stopping in if you’re in the area!

– this is in pasadena and a completely different vibe than any of the others. it definitely caters to an older crowd, lots of St. John knits. but, that means that many of the other items get looked over. it’s hit or miss for me but used to be around the corner from my house so i stopped in often. i’ve scored many things but a highlight was a gorgeous wool wrap with a suede fringe by Chloe for $150.

– this is in echo park and i think it’s almost all vintage but they have a great prices and great pieces. this is where we got bri’s Dolly Parton costume! and i’ve also scored a 70’s black fringe dress and a 90’s floral wrap.

– next to night and market in silver lake, this is the place to go if you love vintage denim! she has a great selection and she also does denim alternations. if you’ve ever found the perfect pair of vintage jeans and taken them to a tailor who totally ruined them you know how important it is to get your jeans altered by someone who knows their way around denim. the prices aren’t cheap but a good pair of jeans will last you a long time.
