Flickr Find: Jane.B Can't Find the Cheese

Cute Girl... nasty pizza...

jane.b is a young lady from Brisbane, Australia who has lots of enthusiasm when it comes to preparing pizza, but is obviously in need of some guidance. She lives in the same city as the people that made the Bugeyed Screaming Pizza Face. Maybe they can help her out?!

Now Jane is a teenage girl so I'm going to take it easy on her. I may be the Big Cheese, but I still have a heart. Heh, heh... what? I'm serious! Ahem, anyways... she's obviously creative and took the time to photograph her work, so I'll give her a break.

So in this pre-bake photo we have 1) a crust, 2) pizza sauce, 3) olives, 4) sundried tomatoes, and 5) either feta cheese or chunks of firm tofu. Notice anything missing? Well if the bold lettering I inserted into the graphic didn't give you a hint: IT'S CHEESE! Cheese is an essential pizza ingredient, especially on a happy pizza! Now maybe our young Jane is a vegetarian or a vegan, that's cool with us, but there's lots of varieties of soy cheese, etc. that could fill this critical role in making a truly happy pizza.

I know I said I'd take it easy, okay maybe I lied a little. No baked photo and no cheese = 1/10.

If Jane B from Brisbane Australia is reading this take heart, to become a truly great happy happy pizza chef you must hone your craft for years. You've got a good start. Now please buy some mozzarella and a grater and get practicing!

Click here and see if you can figure out if that's tofu or feta on there.

Breaking Pizza News! I have it on good authority from jane.b's Mum Louise that this is, in fact, feta cheese on this pizza. Now I don't know what to think. When I thought it was tofu the exclusion of proper mozzarella almost made sense, but since we obviously aren't dealing with a vegan pizza person I cannot imagine what twisted chain of events would lead to a pizza being created that is completely devoid of proper cheesiness.

A Quick Slice St. Louis-style pizza is a distinct style of pizza popular in St. Louis, Missouri and its surrounding areas. It is also sometimes duplicated in other areas of the Midwest. The most notable characteristic of St. Louis-style pizza is the distinctively St. Louisan provel cheese used instead of (or rarely in addition to) the mozzarella common to other styles of pizza. The pizza has a thin, round crust, as opposed to Chicago's deep-dish style or New York's pan-style. The crust of a St. Louis pizza is somewhat crisp and cannot be folded easily, and is typically cut into three- or four-inch squares instead of the pie-like wedges typical of other pizza. It is often salty and seasoned with more oregano than other pizza types. Despite its thin crust, it can be layered deeply with many different toppings. Sauces tend to have a sweetness to them, some more noticeably than others. The two largest St. Louis-style Pizza chains are Imo's Pizza and Cecil Whittaker's Pizzeria.
